Yonge Street is Toronto’s most iconic main street. It has hosted the largest celebrations in our city’s history, from the World Pride parade to the Raptors’ victory party. When Toronto wins, the city descends onto downtown Yonge Street to celebrate together with the whole world watching. Each year, millions of residents and visitors walk, shop, bike, dine, work and live along downtown Yonge Street, making it the most vibrant destination street unlike any in Canada. But Toronto is also changing quickly, and Yonge Street has to catch up.
YongeTOmorrow is our once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform Yonge Street into a world-class, 21-century urban destination. Yonge TOmorrow proposes a full and flexible redesign of the street from College St, south to Queen St, where sidewalks will be expanded, vehicle lanes modified restaurant patios extended and street furniture and streetscape elements added.
Lined with brand destination retailers, restaurants, music venues, theatres, the Eaton Centre, and Yonge Dundas Square, YongeTOmorrow is our chance to bring one of Toronto’s most historic and culturally important streets back onto the world stage. This is the moment to mobilize huge public support and think boldly about the future of this iconic city street. This is the time for Yonge TOmorrow.
Join us on March 24, 2020 for a special yongeTOmorrow planning and information session for Residents' Association members in Wards 10, 11 and 13. This event will present information on the Yonge Street Environmental Assessment and provide opportunities for residents to get involved in the process. This will be your chance to ask questions, share ideas, and learn how you can help shape the Yonge Street of tomorrow!
The advancement of a pedestrian-priority Yonge Street, will benefit pedestrian-friendly initiatives throughout the City as a whole. Working together, we can create a beautiful Toronto, that serves residents and the environment first!
