CHERRY STREET LAKE FILLING, TORONTO, ON
Completed at MVVA
This project is the first phase of Port Lands and it is a 60 million-dollar, 15-acre project aimed to create a land mass around the existing Essroc Quay by lake filling with stone and soil with the intention of serving as the sub-base for a future park, creating new, re-naturalized shorelines, and stabilizing aging dock walls that are under risk of collapsing during flood events.
As Designer, Draftsman, and Project Manager, Preston directly coordinated with the geotechnical, civil, marine coastal and environmental engineers, the project hydrologist and ecologists to develop and document a constructible, on-budget project.
