Imagining the future of Bank St in the Glebe



Description

Let's take a walk down Bank Street in the Glebe. There are a number of new developments planned along the street. At the same time, there are a lot of vacant store fronts. There are competing uses, an active BIA, and an engaged community, resulting in a fair amount of friction. There’s the potential for some great advancements, as well as some serious planning blunders. We’ll talk about what’s happening, the vision(s) for Bank Street, and what problems/possibilities we see. 


Route

Meet at the Grand Staircase leading to the stadium at Lansdowne Park.  From there, we'll walk straight down Bank Street from TD Place to the Queensway. We may cross the street occasionally.
