Capital Projects

The Downtown Yonge Planning & Development team works with the City of Toronto and local stakeholders to implement public realm enhancement projects. These vibrant, beautiful spaces welcome visitors and encourage them to spend time in Downtown Yonge. The team also works with new developments in the area to provide members with support for their re-development projects.

Current Projects

McGill & Granby Parkette, 2014

We are about to begin design work to improve two parkettes off Yonge Street. McGill Parkette and Granby parkette provide a wonderful opportunity to enhance the quality of green space along Yonge Street. Improved paving, lighting and greenery will provide much needed amenity to the area.

Upcoming Projects

UPDATE: Victoria Street Capital Improvement Project, on hold

Due to a large number of upcoming redevelopments along Victoria Street, the capital improvement project has been put on hold. In order to ensure the longevity of our proposals and avoid damage, plans to reconstruct the sidewalk and provide new paving, planter boxes, trees, and bike parking will be delivered once construction projects are complete.
