Queen Street West BIA Streetscape Improvements
The Queen Street West BIA has kicked-off the process for their streetscape improvements from Spadina to Simcoe. This will mirror the streetscape improvements that were done from Bathurst to Spadina, improving the public realm, urban forestry, and accessibility along this stretch of Queen West. From Spadina to Simcoe, we will see new trees and tree guards, street furniture and re-paved sidewalks with heritage markers denoting some of the historically significant structures in the area, as well as the possibility of new pedestrian friendly spaces.
Design work is at an early stage, and my office and the City will provide updates as they are available. Construction is scheduled to align with streetcar track improvements, currently scheduled for 2021.
