How Are Students Helping to Develop Toronto's Neighbourhoods?
Saturday Jan 27th, 2018
“We are very excited to bring this year’s Hines Student Competition to Toronto,” said ULI Americas Chief Executive Officer Ralph Boyd. “This competition is part of an ongoing ULI effort to raise awareness among young people about the very real impact that land use and urban development has on people’s lives, as well as the fortunes of our cities. It also provides an informative look at how the next generation of land use professionals will be collaborating to build cities for the future.”
Students from almost 60 universities in Canada and the United States are designing a development for the eastern side of the Don River in Toronto.
The design is based on a hypothetical situation for the Urban Land Institute’s Hines Student Competition which is designed to simulate an actual urban planning and development scenario, and reflects developments being considered as part of the City of Toronto’s vision for reviving the neighbourhoods east of its historic downtown.
