'Mimico 20/20' plan aims to rethink, open up lakefront community

Etobicoke-York Community Council yesterday passed a plan called "Mimico 20/20," an ambitious project to rethink the community of Mimico, especially the area that fronts Lake Ontario. A number of apartment towers south of Lake Shore Boulevard West currently create a bleak and uninviting shoreline; the lakefront features the buildings' parking lots. The City of Toronto hired four consultants to lead a "design charette" for a rethink of the area.
