The new design centres around sustainability, according to the release, and will focus on, "energy savings, water efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts."

This announcement is part of the provincial government's plans to revitalize Ontario Place, which was officially announced on July 30 at a press conference.

The project is expected to be complete in 2030, and create over 900 jobs and attract up to 1 million visitors per year.
