Etobicoke Lays the Groundwork for a Central Hub

The west end community’s days as a suburb are over

By Eric Mutrie

An upcoming civic centre will establish a pedestrian-friendly downtown district in Etobicoke. The complex, envisioned by Danish firm Henning Larsen with Toronto’s Adamson Associates and PMA Landscape Architects, calls for a cluster of trapezoidal buildings that will pack in a council chamber, a pool and gym, a library, a daycare and office space. Their staggered arrangement shelters an adjacent outdoor square.
