Planning & Development
The DUKE Heights Planning team works with the City of Toronto and local stakeholders to implement public realm enhancement projects that improve the streetscape of the neighbourhood, creating vibrant, functional spaces that welcome visitors and encourages them to engage with our members.
Our public realm strategy encompasses both aesthetics and functionality in the DUKE Heights area, one of the fastest growing business districts in the city of Toronto. A PDF version of the DUKE Heights Public Realm Report conducted by the City and other organizations is available here.
The area between Dufferin to Keele, and Steeles to Sheppard is undergoing a seismic shift. The old industrial heartland of Toronto is slowly emerging as the hyper-connected new economic hub of the City. Here are a few studies and presentations conducted by the City of Toronto, and other organizations, about the changes coming to the DUKE Heights community.
The DUKE Heights area is undergoing an incredible level of transformation and development. Soon the area will have LRT, Subway and Metrolinx crisscrossing the area coupled with continuous inputs from the City in beautification. Members can also now enjoy several free services from the BIA.
