About this title

Synopsis:

Large-scale development is once again putting Toronto's waterfront at the leading edge of change. As in other cities around the world, policymakers, planners, and developers are envisioning the waterfront as a space of promise and a prime location for massive investments. Currently, the waterfront is being marketed as a crucial territorial wedge for economic ascendancy in globally competitive urban areas.Reshaping Toronto's Waterfront analyses how and why 'problem spaces' on the waterfront have become 'opportunity spaces' during the past hundred and fifty years. Contributors with diverse areas of expertise illuminate processes of development and provide fresh analyses of the intermingling of nature and society as they appear in both physical forms and institutional arrangements, which define and produce change. Reshaping Toronto's Waterfront is a fundamental resource for understanding the waterfront as a dynamic space that is neither fully tamed nor wholly uncontrolled.

Review:

'Reshaping Toronto's Waterfront offers a comprehensive overview of the city's ever-changing shoreline. Readers will learn about the monumental decisions and socio-economic pressures that have transformed Toronto's waterfront for over two hundred years. They will also be reminded of the territorial battles between all levels of government that have been going on for over a century, and most disturbingly, continue to be played out to this day. If we want to know how Toronto's lakeshore has ended up in its current state, we have to learn from the mistakes and successes that dot its history. Reshaping Toronto's Waterfront is a good place to get your history lesson.' - Matthew Blackett, publisher, Spacing

'The book provides an insightful historical sketch and critical analysis of the variegated socio-natural processes of waterfront development to urban historians, scholars of urban environmental history, urbanists, city planners, scholars of local politics, students as well as activists.'

- Thorben Wieditz - Urban Studies vol 51:04:2014
