Toronto will be a construction zone next year as work continues on some of the city’s most defining projects — Don River Park in the West Don Lands, the Queens Quay reconfiguration, the revitalization of Fort York and Nathan Phillips Square and highrises such as the Aurora and L-Tower — but few will be complete by the end of the year. Here’s a look at what will change in and around the city by the end of 2011:

Reclaimed spaces

In the spring, the north portion of Sherbourne Common, the city’s new park on former industrial land at Queens Quay and Sherbourne, will open to include a children’s play area. At the end of the year, Underpass Park, below the eastern portion of the Richmond Street overpass, will see derelict land transformed into ball hockey and basketball courts, as well as seating.

Landmark towers

The 59-storey Trump Hotel and Tower at Bay and Adelaide streets will become Toronto’s second-highest building when it’s finished.

Transit

The Yonge-University subway line will get a new look this year with the delivery of a completely redesigned train that’s distinguished from the existing T1 cars by the fact that riders will be able to walk the full length of the train inside.
