Reimagining the Complete Street

Evaluating issues related to urban water management, ecology, air quality and public safety, to inform proposed interventions intended to transform the Queensway, in Toronto, into a Complete and Green Street

As a major city on the international stage and the most populated city in Canada, Toronto has a responsibility to lead by example as it develops for the future. Green and Complete streetscape redesign, as exemplified on The Queensway, showcases how interventions can be scaled across the City to integrate resilient infrastructure. The hope of this research team is that this work provides an example of how United Nations Sustainable Development Goals can be advanced at a practical urban scale, and inspire change in the built environment for improved places for people and the planet.
