Planning and Revitalizing of Yonge Street

Planning and Revitalizing of Yonge Street

Yonge Street is an important cultural corridor that serves as “Canada’s Main Street”. The stretch of Yonge from the waterfront to Davenport Road borders on five Business Improvement Areas and ten Resident Associations. With landmark institutions such as the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Eaton's Centre, Yonge-Dundas Square, Ryerson University, the Yorkville shopping district and the iconic intersection of Yonge and Bloor, it serves as the Toronto's downtown core for arts, culture and shopping for residents and tourists alike.

The Five Year Capital Works Plan calls for major utility and road resurfacing work on Yonge Street to take place in 2016. This provides an opportunity to explore commercial improvements that might be made in conjunction with the scheduled construction work to increase the commercial vibrancy of the street and retail experience.
