Waterfront Toronto's vision for Queens Quay and the East Bayfront has sparked enthusiasm since the winner of a design competition was unveiled in 2006. The scenario being recommended would turn the south side of Queens Quay into a "linear park," with a wide pedestrian promenade shaded and separated from traffic by aisles of trees. The drawings show streetcars running down the middle of the avenue on a grassy right-of-way – a green touch still under discussion.
The existing four lanes of traffic would be reduced to two lanes on the north side of the road.
