The pedestrian bridge design was mandated to act as a landmark gateway from Front Street in Toronto to Skydome. The structure had to contend with the existing Convention Centre and its access ramp. Clearance to the existing railway right-of-way and an existing signal house at track level dictated shallow structural system. This parameter resulted in the use of a cable stayed structure.
