SIDEWALK TORONTO "GOOGLE SMART CITY"
By Sidewalk Labs (Sister Company of Google)
A neighborhood that lives up to the city's principles of livability, connectivity, prosperity, and longetivy. Sidewalk Labs, a sibling company to Google, will accelerate these plans by orienting the environment around bike paths and pedestrian laneways instead of cars and condos. Quayside will be a new type of place, unlike any other neighbourhood in Toronto.
- Home of new headquarters for Google Canada
- Emphasis on bike paths and pedestrian laneways
- Featuring pilot projects such as:
- Self-driving shuttle
- Thermal grid for power
- Community group using digital kiosks to provide feedback for local planning discussion
Here is one example of a projected goal by Sidewalk. Pictured above is the Victory Soya Mills Silo, an icon of Quayside's industrial past that the team at Sidewalk is aiming to integrate into the community. Some ideas they have explored would simultaneously pay homage to the site's heritage while creating a new innovation.
Ideas include transforming the silo into:
- An urban farm
- A transit hub
- A garden
- A museum
- A hotel
- A tech incubator
The possibilities are endless.
On top of that, with unparalleled access to Toronto’s extensive waterfront, the world’s best food market voted by National Geographic, and culturally vibrant neighbourhoods, Lakeside will be stone's throw from:
- Lakeside views
- Nightlife and entertainment
- Biking trails
- Highway and transit routes
