KPMB Architects, West 8 and Greenberg Consultants have been announced as winners of a competition to revitalize Toronto's Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Harbor Square Park. The winning proposal, "Harbour Landing" envisions a terminal embedded within the surrounding park and topped with a lush public green space that expands the waterfront park. 

"The vision for the area will result in a welcoming gateway to the Toronto Islands – one of the City's most unique and cherished parks – with amenities and infrastructure to support the approximately 1.3 million visitors who use the ferry each year," said competition organizers, Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto in a press release.

"KPMB Architects + West 8 + Greenberg Consultants' proposal successfully created a signature waterfront park and iconic ferry terminal that complements proximity to the water's edge while offering spectacular views of the lake. The jury agreed that the winning proposal's heavily planted and lush green space set it apart from the other designs and would help support the large number of visitors during peak times."
