    Unlocking Transit-Oriented Communities (TOC): How to Capture the Value of a “26-hour City”?
    The Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) is the fastest growing Global City Region in North America, with two thirds of the growth anticipated outside of the Toronto core, connected by rapid transit investments and lands owned by the province. TOC is the leading direction to expand healthy, convenient, high-quality live-work-play along subways networks, Light Rail Transit (LRT) and across existing GO networks. The effective and efficient delivery of such TOC requires a new way of problem-solving that aligns stakeholders to a shared perspective that enables concurrent decision making and effective cross-sector collaborations to unlock the value of untapped land, social and workforce assets.
    The Urban Land Institute (ULI) Toronto, in collaboration with the City of Brampton, City of Helsinki, Greenberg Consultants and University of Toronto School of Cities will bring this subject to life through exploring the invisible hands that shape the 100,000 people and jobs expected at Uptown Brampton Hurontario-Steeles TOC. With the LRT coming in 2024, this area is experiencing substantial transformation into a high-density, mixed-use, family-oriented, healthy and walkable transit-oriented community, taking shape through the combined interests of Provincial, Regional, Municipal, Private Sector and Community interests.
    Join us on Thursday, October 8, 2020 to hear the recommendations created from the October 2nd walkshop.
