Nicholson Lane Revitalization

Over the course of 2018, we worked with St. Lawrence neighbourhood residents, businesses and organizations to develop a revitalization master plan to transform Nicholson Lane from a utilitarian space into a beautiful, safe and appealing shared place for community and service use — including infrastructure for community-led activation, multi-modal safety and traffic management measures, art by local artists, pedestrian-friendly lighting for safety and character, and greening that softens the space and ties into existing programs at the adjacent St. Lawrence Community Recreation Centre.

We are now working to implement the first, “quick win” phase of the project, comprising planter gardens, lighting and murals, during 2019. Mural painting is underway, and construction is expected in September!
