Sidewalk Toronto is a joint effort by Sidewalk Labs and Waterfront Toronto to create a new kind of mixed-use, complete community on Toronto’s Eastern Waterfront. Both Sidewalk Labs and Waterfront Toronto are committed to a new, first of its kind, innovative approach to city-building that combines world-class urban design and cutting-edge technology in order to deliver transformative benefits in quality of life to a diverse set of city residents, workers and visitors.

To achieve its goals, the Master Innovation and Development Plan (MIDP) for Sidewalk Toronto proposes to create an Innovative Design and Economic Acceleration (IDEA) District in two phases. The phased proposal will facilitate testing, refining, and demonstrating the impact of core innovations at a new five-hectare neighborhood, called Quayside, and subsequently bringing the innovations to scale at the 62-hectare River District to fully realize priority outcomes.

WSP has supported Sidewalk Labs in the preparation and creation of the MIDP. Primary services provided by our firm include transportation planning; travel demand modeling; sustainability and infrastructure assessments; and greenhouse gas emission reduction modeling.
