What the new Harbour St. pedestrian bridge looks like

The Harbour St. pedestrian bridge is almost ready to open, extending the PATH system from the Air Canada Centre to Waterpark Place at Queens Quay. Last weekend the final segment was installed in an elaborate procedure that lifted the the bridge over the Gardiner Expressway. Now that it's in place, the public can expect to start using the elevated corridor in early October. A formal opening is scheduled for December.

Designed by WZMH Architects, the glass structure is attractive in an understated sort of way. It certainly looks interesting as it extends over the expressway, hinting at the density that Toronto now boasts in the area dubbed Southcore. Here's a look at the freshly installed final section.
