Daily Commercial News
gives the details of the design plans for the new Canary District
on the waterfront.
"'Unlike many athletes' village projects which are purpose-built to house competitors during major athletic events and then converted to other uses following the games, this project is advancing the building of a community that was already planned and under development,' said Meg Davis, Waterfront Toronto's vice-president of development."
"To ensure aesthetic diversity across the Canary District, teams from four architecture firms—architectsAlliance, KPMB, Daoust Lestage Inc. and MacLellan Jaunkalns Miller Architects—were commissioned to design 'unique, contemporary buildings' reflective of their trademark architectural styles, Dundee Kilmer Developments said."
