Global consultancy KPMG has named Waterfront Toronto one of the world's best infrastructure projects.
In its report, Infrastructure 100: World Cities Edition
, KPMG includes the massive project—the biggest urban renewal project in North America—alongside Abu Dhabi 2030, Rio's Olympic Park and Manhattan's World Trade Center redevelopment.
"The Toronto Waterfront was selected because it is a truly transformative project that highlights how even highly developed cities can evolve their infrastructure," KPMG said through one of its PR operatives, Cynthia Innes.
Waterfront Toronto is redeveloping 800 hectares of land into a series of neighbourhoods that will ultimately include 40,000 new homes, a similar number of local jobs, new transit and 300 hectares of parks.
