Shaping the Future of Yonge Street
Client: Downtown Yonge BIA
Downtown Yonge street is one of the most diverse and fastest growing retail area of the city. As a result, the BIA was concerned that new developments would overshadow (literally and figuratively) the vitality of the street level retail experience. In order to take a more proactive role in development, we were commissioned by the Downtown Yonge BIA to consolidate past studies, conduct a thorough analysis of current and potential street contexts, and propose urban design-based guiding principles as the first steps for the BIA towards creating its own development plan.
For this project I also created a set of vector land use icons. If you'd like to use them in your own projects, you're more than welcome to and can download them in Adobe Illustrator Format.
