Planning + Development

The Downtown Yonge Planning department produces public realm projects that improve the streetscape of the neighbourhood, creating vibrant, functional spaces that welcome visitors and encourages them to engage with our members. The department also advocates on behalf of the district with other developments in the area and provides members with support for their re-development projects.

Capital Projects

Our Planning & Development team works in partnership with the City of Toronto to design and implement streetscape enhancements in the Downtown Yonge area.

Area Development

The Downtown Yonge BIA works closely with the development in the area to ensure it benefits our community and complements our public realm.


Active Transportation

Active transportation refers to any form of human-powered transportation. We are working to encourage active transportation usage in Downtown Yonge through education and advocacy, and by providing free services such as bike valets and bike repair clinics.

Yonge Love

Yonge Love is a creative community consultation on the future of Downtown Yonge. Through a series of content and initiatives in 2014, we are engaging Torontonians in a conversation about the neighborhood – sharing the stories of its past, surveying the present, and imagining its future.
