  A bold new approach is needed to solve some of downtown Toronto urban development restrictions. The desire to expand and embrace the waterfront area is restricted by traffic arteries. The Gardiner Expressway should be repositioned and reconnected in a different way with the existing main urban network. Analysis shows that there will be enough urban infill space to satisfy current and future needs. The repositioning will create new nodes of dense urban structures. This will open possibilities for the complete restructuring of existing functions.
