The Regent Park Revitalization Plan began in 2005 and proposes to rebuild the entire neighbourhood, a community of over 12,500 residents during a 20 year period.

The revitalization plan consists of 5 reconstruction phases and is being funded by a public-private partnership between various government bodies and the Daniels Corporation. The plan includes a mix of affordable rental and market condominium buildings and townhouses developments, as well as commercial space with community facilities, parks and open spaces. This includes the Daniels Spectrum community cultural hub that won the ULI Global Award for Excellence in 2016.

Currently in phases 2 and 3 of construction, the community is already recognized internationally as an urban planning model that mixes different income levels and housing tenure, integrates ethnicities, and blends private and public spaces.

Following an international design competition and years of construction, Queens Quay has been transformed from an uninviting traffic corridor and to a signature boulevard and waterfront destination. The project reduced the number of traffic lanes, created a generous new pedestrian promenade, created a new cycling path, realigned the streetcar tracks, and incorporated much improved landscaping in the area.

Bicycles will be provided and will conclude at the Amsterdam Brew House, a restaurant and brewery on Toronto’s waterfront edge.
