"The next phase of the competition will involve the preparation of a complete vision for the entire downtown riverfront, more detailed plans for the river edges around the Forks of the Thames and the SoHo District, and the identification of two inaugural projects that could be quickly developed to kick start the regeneration of the City of London’s primary open space asset.

Final submissions will be received in mid-October, following which each of the contestants will make public presentations of their proposals in front of the jury. The schemes will then be open for public viewing. The winning submission and firm will be announced in early November. The winning proponent will be awarded a design contract with the City of London of at least $200,000 to initiate a detailed design of the inaugural project at the Forks of the Thames."
