For this project, we wrote a full Secondary Plan for the Mimico-Judson area which the City of Toronto identified as a Regeneration Area. Through design charrettes, group visioning exercises, reviewing applicable policies, and analyzing public consultation summaries we developed 8 guiding principles for the area, which included: mixed-use development, multi-modal transportation, diversity, appropriate transitions into established neighbourhoods, great public spaces, mid-rise development, heritage protection, and walkability. We divided the area into three precincts and proposed both land-use and zoning changes for each of these precincts. This included introducing a mixed-use area, a linear park, and a pedestrian pathway that would better connect both sides of the rail tracks. In addition to the Secondary Plan, our group wrote the Official Plan Amendment required to implement the proposed changes.
