The mouth of the Don River is being re-routed from its current location at the Keating Channel through the middle of the Lower Don Lands between the Keating Channel and the Ship Channel, restoring it as a major feature of Toronto’s waterfront and the centerpiece of new mixed-use neighborhoods and parks and green spaces.

Coordinating with project landscape architects, hydrologists, and geotechnical and civil engineers, Inter-Fluve led the development of channel and wetland designs, plant species assemblages, and in-stream and wetland habitat features. Photo: MVVA.
