Yorkdale WalkShop

WalkShops with Mall staff, local residents and stakeholders helped guide a new design for the Yorkdale Mall.

In 2017, the Dept designed and facilitated a WalkShop with local residents, stakeholders and Yorkdale Mall staff to consider a proposed Master Plan for redeveloping the parking lot configurations, street alignments and walking routes.


Input was captured and summarized for the design team Urban Strategies to incorporate in the proposal for client Oxford Properties.
