This strategy is a comprehensive update of the Toronto Financial District BIA’s original public realm strategy Raising the Standard that was completed in 2013. It summarizes the functional and aesthetic state of the public realm in the Financial District and highlights updated best practices and key areas for improvement. This update also includes an overview of public realm improvements completed to date, as well as an outline of future improvements based on the City of Toronto’s Five-Year Capital Plan. The Toronto Financial District BIA will continue to lead a collaborative effort to ensure implementation of the highest City standards in the public realm. As such, this strategy is a living document and will be reviewed and updated on an annual basis.
