12. Front Street Mews
The portion of the Front Street Parkade west of 6th Street has been removed, and the existing Frontage Road on this section of Front Street is being redesigned as a “Mews”. The Mews is envisioned to become an attractive, safe and pedestrian-friendly great street of which residents and merchants alike can be proud. The Mews feature a widened sidewalk, street furniture, lighting, street trees, traffic-calming, planters and angled parking to access local businesses. A continuous paving treatment for the street and sidewalk reinforces the idea of a ‘shared street’ (i.e. designed to facilitate a wide range of activities including local access, pedestrian and bicycle movement, social interaction, commercial and restaurant activity).
The site is now host to one of the City’s most exciting events, Fridays on Front.
