Designing for Difference
At this location, the project aims to include more diverse perspectives and experiences in planning for the use and care of the future plaza.
As part of the Ontario Greenway area improvements, a new public space is planned for at Ontario St and 5th Ave.
With a high number of people walking and cycling, the neighbourhood and its vibrant retail, has potential to support a lively plaza experience.
The interim plaza is planned to:
- Create a space for people to sit and gather
- Integrate with Ontario Greenway Upgrades at 5th Ave
- Help reduce motor vehicle short-cutting during construction of the Broadway Subway
- Help make the Ontario Greenway more comfortable for walking, cycling, and rolling
