Union Park

The Union Park site in downtown Toronto is directly adjacent to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Rogers Centre stadium, the CN Tower, and a short walk to the waterfront. This project includes two new office towers, two new residential towers, and a 3-acre urban park built over the Union Station rail corridor. The capping of the rail corridor is a part of a larger public initiative to reclaim open space for residents and connect the city center to the waterfront. Because of the railway below, the park site needs to be elevated approximately 3 meters above the entrance/exit from the stadium. This grade change is an opportunity to create an accessible three-dimensional public realm. The new park, in addition to the renovation/redesign of the existing Isabella Valancy Crawford Park, the surrounding streetscapes, and podium roof terraces, will provide vital new green spaces to downtown Toronto.

The master plan is centered on providing increased public access through play spaces, social gathering, public access, shopping, and more. A large atrium space between the two office buildings and aligned on axis with the baseball stadium is slated to become a winter garden with retail shopping and dining inside. Game day crowds will be able to walk through both this space and the new park on their way to Rogers Centre to attend baseball and other stadium events.
