Design and The City of Toronto

Design Review Panels are used successfully by many cities in Canada and internationally to improve the design quality of buildings and public spaces. They exist in the United States in cities such as Boston and Seattle, in England and across Europe. Canadian Design Review Panels include the National Capital Commission in Ottawa and those of the Cities of Vancouver and Montreal. In Ontario, Design Review Panels have been established in the City of Ottawa and Niagara Falls. In Toronto, two independent Design Review Panels have recently been established by the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) and the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation (TWRC).
