In most of Canada’s urban areas we take it for granted that the importance of having sidewalks on each and every street is not a matter of contention, at least not to the same extent as it is in parts of the U.S. But up until now there has been one historical significant gap in downtown Toronto’s pedestrian network, on Richmond Street between Spadina and Peter Streets.
This fall, not only is a new sidewalk being installed on the south side of Richmond Street but also it will be a fairly wide sidewalk, complete with tree holes.
Urbanspace Property Group, who manage 401 Richmond Street, is closely following the construction of this new sidewalk in a photo blog. You can sense the growing excitement as each new phase of construction is documented.
