Public Consultation on Next Steps for Quayside
Waterfront Toronto is launching a public forum on the next steps for the Quayside project.
Quayside is a central project in Waterfront Toronto’s mission to revitalize and reclaim our city’s waterfront. Since day one, our objective with Quayside has been to develop a new model for how we can build a 21st century neighbourhood – one that is truly affordable, liveable, and sustainable. It is critical that we get it right.
Three years ago, Waterfront Toronto set out to create an ambitious plan for a next-generation sustainable community at Quayside. Through planning work and thoughtful public discussion, Quayside was envisioned as an opportunity to build a neighbourhood that serves everyone, while addressing the urban challenges of housing affordability, active transportation, and climate change. While Sidewalk Labs is no longer pursuing this project, the engagement and feedback received from residents and community organizations has provided a solid framework to build on.
Among the next steps for the project, Waterfront Toronto is preparing a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a development partner for Quayside, which will be released this winter and is planned to be awarded by next summer.
Waterfront Toronto is now asking for the public to weigh in on the renewed goals for the project- Inclusive, Resilient, Dynamic. A number of public consultation resources are being provided to gather feedback:
- Stay informed: Watch the video presentation (9 minutes) and read this project backgrounder.
- Get Involved: Take the online survey and share your opinion on the updated project goals. The survey is open until October 23.
- Ask questions: Join one of three informal interactive sessions on October 15, 16 and 21 to ask questions you have about the latest plans for Quayside. Click here to register.
- A Summary Report on the feedback will be published in November.
