With recent and planned growth in the Uptown area, the City is developing a ‘Great Street Vision’ to inform future redevelopment and future City capital project works along Sixth Street and Sixth Avenue.
The purpose of the Uptown Streetscape Vision is to deliver a bold and creative, yet affordable and attainable streetscape for Sixth Street, Sixth Avenue and Belmont Street within the Uptown Neighbourhood. The project focus areas (context map - solid red lines) include:
- Sixth Street between Fifth Avenue and Eighth Avenue
- Belmont Street
- Sixth Avenue between Fifth Street and Eighth Street
What is the goal of this process?
- Builds on previous studies and sets forth a vision for the Uptown Streetscape
- Provides design concept and guidelines to inform detailed design and implementation of the redevelopment of Sixth Avenue and Sixth Street as 'Great Streets'
