Interesting piece (and image, above) from Dandyhorse about what King St would look like (and a bit about how it would benefit business) if it was re-designed to actually move people, and not just be parking lots filled with slowly moving cars.
A New Image for Toronto: Pedestrian priority combined with a transit right-of-wayFrom our NEW issue!Story by Albert KoehlWhat kind of city do you want to live in? How should public spaces be shared? If you had the opportunity to reimagine and reshape important roadways like King and Queen Streets in downtown Toronto, would that streetscape be used differently than it is now? Today, problems of congestion, increasing urban density, and climate change have forced us to rethink the path our transportation system has taken. King Street could provide an excellent case study for how re-prioritizing road use could lead to a happier, healthier , more mobile and more successful downtown.
