Prince Arthur’s Landing transforms the City of Thunder Bay’s waterfront into a mixed-use village and animated waterfront park reconnecting the downtown to the shores of Lake Superior. The waterfront opened to the public December 2011, and has seen record attendance, the opening of several new businesses and over ten design excellence awards. Commencing in 2006, Thunder Bay commissioned a team led by Brook McIlroy to design its new waterfront that would transform the City’s image and quality of life. In 2009, the City was awarded the second largest contribution in Ontario under the National Infrastructure Stimulus Fund (ISF) program. Through a $22 million investment, the City leveraged a comprehensive revitalization project with a construction value of $120 million, composed of $55 million in public sector funding and $65 million private sector investment.
