MIX OF USES

The community vision will offer a broad mix of uses such as:

 

 

Shopping with a mix of large store and local retail

Dining at a selection of restaurants and cafes

Offices to bring employment to the neighbourhood

Residential to give people more opportunity to own and rent here

Parkland where there used to be pavement

Complete streets designed for safe walking, cycling and driving 

Pathways that link us to the broader neighbourhood

And a central square where our community can gather

RETAIL SQUARE

 

 

In our Plan, accessible Complete Streets are designed so that pedestrians, bikes and cars will share the street together, with priority given to pedestrians. Rows of shade trees will shelter restaurants and retail in the manner of the retail promenade. The new street pattern will include natural links and connections to the surrounding community.

NEW PARK

AND OPEN SPACES

 

Through shared use of the parks, our Plan connects the community to the surrounding neighbourhood.  By incorporating a variety of Programming for different parks and public spaces (privately owned features like the central square) we intend to bring more life to the community. Shoppers will be drawn to new retail by the main street where residents will interact, creating a stronger sense of community and civic pride.

NEW STREETS

 

 

Better connections and new mobility options to the surrounding neighbourhoods will create a safer cycling and pedestrian experience. Better traffic management opportunities can be an important part of creating a safer driving experience over the current large parking lot.

PUBLIC REALM

 

Our Plan includes significant features that will enable easy access to the GO Station  – cycling, pedestrian routes, new traffic signals etc. Residents can meet neighbours while strolling, window shopping, biking or heading out in their car. The public realm of roads, paths, sidewalks and parks will bring people together, because good connections make a great community.

“Residential units above retail keep the street active around the clock, providing convenience for residents and sales volume for retailers.” - Urban Land Institute Report - "Ten Principles for Rebuilding Neighbourhood Retail"

TRANSPORTATION

 Nearby Agincourt GO Station has been totally rebuilt and is almost complete.  Metrolinx is also adding a second set of tracks that will facilitate significant service levels – all-day, two-way service every 15 minutes should happen in a few years.  This is a significant improvement. New roads will create additional options in a community that is currently well-served by transportation routes. Current transportation plans include major upgrades to local services.

•    Agincourt GO Station and the planned all-day, two-way service improvements      are within a 10-minute walk

•    Seven bus lines are in the immediate area

•    The Hwy. 401 on-ramp is located 0.7 km’s from Kennedy and Sheppard

•    The Provincial Government has major plans for the extension of the Sheppard      Subway that will stop at our corner

•    19 minutes by bus from Don Mills Subway Station

•    25 minutes by bus from Kennedy Subway Station

•    24 minutes by bus from Scarborough SRT

•    30 minutes to Union Station by GO Train

The Provincial Government shows a new Sheppard Subway in their budget and planning documents. With expanded transit infrastructure now a high priority with all levels of government, the planned Subway is moving closer to being a reality.
