In 2012, Urban Strategies was hired to undertake the Mount Dennis Mobility Hub Study. The objectives of the study are to conduct a comprehensive scan and analyse the existing and future conditions around the station area and prepare a plan that will illustrate key infrastructure components, a real estate analysis to identify potential development opportunities and property acquisitions, and a conceptual land use plan to provide a foundation for future planning initiatives. The plan is intended to optimize the place-making role of the station while preserving and enhancing the site’s transportation functionality.
The Mount Dennis Mobility Hub Study is intended to provide a basis for future planning and design work in the area and will be incorporated into the City of Toronto’s Eglinton Corridor Study as a series of built form guidelines and recommentations for the corridor as a whole. The Mobility Hub Study will also inform the creation of Project-Specific Output Specification (PSOS) that can be incorporated in to AFP and RFP documents, thereby securing the built-form and public realm recommendations as development of Mount Dennis Station and the surrounding area proceeds.
Urban Strategies is providing urban planning expertise related to master planning, policy, and the regulatory framework.
