Yonge Love: A Ryerson City Building Institute Meet-Up

By February 22, 2017 No Comments

The City of Toronto is redesigning Yonge Street so it better serves Torontonians in the 21st century. How can Yonge Street accommodate more pedestrians, improve the public realm, and balance higher density with the public needs of the neighbourhood?

Join the the Ryerson City Building Institute for a Meet-Up that brings together leading city builders and the public to discuss the future of Yonge Street.

This event will be Livestreamed and available for viewing once the event is complete.
