Condos On The Bloor Viaduct

Publication date:

Article Summary: 

The paper titled "Living Bridges: Healthy urban Infrastructure as a Multi-use Economic Asset" by Farrow Partners explores the idea of transforming the Bloor Viaduct, a bridge currently used for automobile transport and TTC subway trains, into a mixed-use community. The paper was presented at an international gathering on designing healthy cities. Completed in 1918, the bridge was officially named the Prince Edward Viaduct after the Prince of Wales, and a suicide-prevention collar was installed in 2003. The paper provides a unique perspective on how to make better use of city infrastructures and explores the idea of building communities around bridges, citing Venice as an example.
