Yonge + St. Clair Streetscape Master Plan

The Yonge + St. Clair BIA is proud to release the final Yonge + St. Clair Streetscape Master Plan. Developed over a year and a half with numerous rounds of consultation with the public, local business and property owners, stakeholders, and City Staff, the Streetscape Master Plan represents the guiding vision for public realm improvements in the area over the next 10 years.

The Streetscape Master plan was prepared by Janet Rosenberg & Studio, with support by Gensler, and funded by the Yonge + St. Clair BIA with the support of the City of Toronto.

The Streetscape Master Plan provides direction for consistent streetscape and furnishing standards across the BIA area including:

  • – Enhanced granite paving material for sidewalks;
  • – Upgraded street furniture;
  • – Installation of in-ground trees in key areas;
  • – Intersection enhancements;
  • – Feature lighting;
  • – Activation zones with upgraded street element;
  • – Gateway features, and more.

Improvements and street standards established by the Streetscape Master Plan will be implemented through ongoing coordination with local property owners, City Staff, the Councillor’s office, and through BIA-funded improvements over the next 10 years. Investments by the BIA into capital upgrades will be phased. Funding commitments by the BIA into these projects will, in most cases, be cost shared 50/50 with the City of Toronto.
