Queen West BIA unveils new OCAD Bikeracks

Back in the spring of 2009, the Ontario College of Art and Design had a Gateway BikeStand competition, and while that contest chose a pretty distinctive winner (photo of winning design at right), the Queen West BIA thought all the designs were great and committed to working with OCAD students to create some new bikeracks for Queen Street West.

The time has come for the 14 new bikeposts to be unveiled, and they’ve released images of them (consisting of 4 designs):

Join representatives from the Queen St. West Business Improvement Area (BIA), OCAD University student designers and representatives, competition jurors and installation team members at the unveiling of 14 creative new bike stands along Queen Street West in Toronto.

Installed along Queen St. West from Simcoe Street to Bathurst Street, the new stands are the result of a unique collaboration between fourth-year design students at OCAD University and the BIA.
