ALFREDO CARABALLO INTERVIEWED BY THE GLOBE AND MAIL

Partner Alfredo Caraballo has been interviewed by the Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper, on plans for 2150 Lake Shore, a new neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end being masterplanned by Allies and Morrison.

Reflecting on and comparing the opportunity to our masterplan for King’s Cross, he remarks, ‘Before we started building at King’s Cross, we went through 27 options for using the space and when it finally happened, it happened differently. One of the fundamental things you have to have in a plan is flexibility. At the same time, there has to be an underlying framework to work around. What we did in King’s Cross and will be doing here is create what we call an armature. We have to set a robust pattern of the transit lines, the streets and squares and connections that everything else will be built around.’
