Now to see the plans for the re-building of the Cloud Garden Park! The City website says:

Brookfield Properties owns the parking structure below the park and will replace the waterproofing during the construction of their new building on the west side of the park.

During construction of the new building, the conservatory, the waterfall, elevated walkways and terraces will not be removed. Key park elements like the steel arbours will be kept and stored and the artwork by Margaret Priest and Tony Sherman on the east building wall will not be removed.

Once the new building immediately west of the park is completed and the waterproofing for the park is replaced, the park will be reinstated.

Cloud Gardens may be returned to its original design with some changes to meet current codes and standards, or it may be significantly updated to meet the needs of the city. Community consultation will determine which option is preferred.

The City is working with the Financial District BIA to look at ways to better maintain and program the renewed park, and is also working cross-divisionally to ensure the public realm of Temperance Street is integrated and coherent with the refreshed design of Cloud Gardens.

The new building is expected to be complete by December of 2022.

Took this the other night. Look at the Escalators in there. This will be the Capital Markets area.

@RyanD I was in the area on Sunday 24th and decided to sit in the plaza for a few minutes. My first time there since before the pandemic began. I was remembering some of the unfavourable comments about the closed-in feeling and I thought, "you know, I kind of like the closed-in effect." So, that's two of us.
