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.
