Lower Don Lands Redevelopment

Terrific 2 minute fly-over of the new river valley and more.

Nice flashback from Northern Light, before the Portlands' industrial life.

Northern Light's comment regarding the 1.5 million litres of groundwater per day that is being treated during construction of the river valley: “The challenges of excavating what was once one of the largest (non-ocean) coastal wetlands on the continent. The original marsh was over 5km2, or about 1,200 acres”.
