What makes a street a great one? The Institute’s report says “they all play a key role in making the surrounding neighborhood a great place to live, work and visit.”
The Five Great TORONTO Streets considered all have visionary street redesigns from the last decade and they work. They support the city’s VISION ZERO plan (making streets safe for bicycles, cars and pedestrians) and their design could potentially save lives.
<MARKET STREET – for people and patios>
<QUEENS QUAY WEST – a street for all uses>
<ST. CLAIR AVENUE WEST – a streetcar neighbourhood>
<RONCESVALLES AVENUE – place-making at its best>
<HARBORD STREET – bike lanes for safer mobility and village improvement>

Ryerson identifies Bloor, King, downtown Yonge, and The Golden Mile as ones to watch in the future. Current pilots and projects could make a dramatic impact on all of them.
