Yonge street at Gould St. Facing north

Yonge Street is downtown’s iconic main street, and it’s poised for a major redesign.

What could a people-centred redesign – with wider sidewalks, new patios and public spaces, and even full pedestrianization – mean for the neighbourhood and for Ryerson?

On this Jane’s Walk, we’ll walk and talk about how a revitalized Yonge Street could improve campus quality of life, business vitality, and neighbourhood liveability – and how we can all support this bold vision.

You’ll hear from some voices with a vision, including:

  • Steven Ziegler, Downtown Yonge BIA
  • Ken Greenberg, Ryerson City Building Institute
  • Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam
  • Molly Anthony, Ryerson Campus Planning
  • Ryerson professor, Dr. Zhixi Zhuang, urban planner, researcher & SURP faculty
