Toronto is known for its livability. Millions have moved into the city, seeking the amenities and entertainment that it has to offer. If you’re a longtime resident, you know that city officials and politicians keep this in mind as they plan and expand the borders. Sustainability sets Toronto apart, inspiring many other Canadian cities to make mindful decisions as they grow.
With new condos in downtown Toronto going up everywhere and the concrete jungle ever expanding, planners have proposed a new city park. Currently, the Davies luxury condo residents will enjoy the benefits of a similar revitalization to the lush Robertson Davies Park adjacent to it.
Why is green space important? Since there essentially is no land downtown for a large, green space, the Rail Deck Park will be built on a deck that encloses the railway lands. This requires the city to purchase the airspace, a novel idea in city planning. The mayor of Toronto announced the project in August 2016, pitching the idea as a “signature park” for the city. This green space will spread 8.5 hectares, between Bathurst Street and Rogers Centre. It will be the “Central Park” of Toronto.
