Images of 11ha masterplan released

Allies and Morrison has submitted a planning application for its 11ha Humber Bay Shores project in Toronto.

The architect was appointed by developer First Capital Realty as lead masterplanner last year on what will be its first built project in North America.

It was the only British architect shortlisted in an international competition for the brownfield former biscuit factory site close to the edge of Lake Ontario – largely thanks to its work at King’s Cross in London.

The Humber Bay project will involve the transformation of the former site of the Christie Cookie factory – currently a void – into a new high-density piece of city.

The experience of pedestrians and cyclists have been prioritised, the architect added. The development will be connected to the rest of Toronto via a new transit hub.
