Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Plan
2014 - Present
The Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Plan commenced in January 2015 with the goal of creating a long-term vision for the Bathurst Quay community. The study will develop recommendations for public realm and transportation improvements, pedestrian and cycling connections and facilities, and open space and park facilities. The study will also develop an approach for the future of the Canada Malting silos and address traffic and access issues related to the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
In 2014 the City of Toronto commissioned Urban Strategies to create a neighbourhood plan for Bathurst Quay. Through extensive community and stakeholder consultations, the master plan advances community priorities in advance of growth strategies centred around Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA) and the Tripartite Agreement governing airport operations. The neighbourhood plan envisions:
- An expanded public realm with a new waterfront park, promenade and new public square at the Canada Malting Silos;
- New communty facilities adding to the neighbourhood schools and amenities;
- A new silo district centered on new growth and conversion of the heritage Canada Malting Silos; and
- Improved streets, traffic management, parking and service solutions that resolve the friction between community and airport uses.
The Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood will be both a complete community and city-wide destination at the
western gateway of Toronto’s inner harbour.
