It is known that Toronto is a city under permanent construction. Wherever you go or look, there is a team working on building the next skyscraper.
Although many of these projects will not be completed in the short term, there are several that are expected to end in 2019 and that will improve the quality of life of the Torontians.
After years and years of construction delays, the new and improved Toronto transit center is scheduled to be completed sometime during the next 12 months. After more than a decade of broken promises, it’s hard to say with certainty when renovations will end at Union Station, but at least now there’s a good food fair.
Formerly known as the Fort York Pedestrian Bridge, this project will create what is advertised as a vital connection between Trinity Bellwoods Park in the north and the Fort York land in the south. “The massive bridge and the spaces of the surrounding parks will be open to the public in the spring, if everything goes according to plan.
This magnificent new beachfront neighbourhood in Toronto’s promising West Don Lands will be completed with the increase in Harris Square, the fourth and final phase of River City. Designed by Saucier + Perrotte, as in the first three phases, the last building has an estimated completion date of December 2019.

A new 1.6-acre public park in downtown Toronto with “a strong indigenous thematic focus” will eventually open sometime this year along Wellesley Street between Bay and Yonge.

More than 1,100 children will be received at schools this fall in what the City of Toronto calls “integrated multipurpose facilities” near Fort York Boulevard and Brunel Court.
