Market Lane Park Revitalization
It looks like the City of Toronto's plan to revitalize Market Lane Park is finally starting to get into gear. The City recently issued a 'Request for Proposal' for Landscape Architects and included in that request is a helpful description of the project which is likely of interest to nearby and surrounding residents. An excerpt from that description follows:
The project site is Market Lane Park located at 149 King Street East, in the St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood. The park site is bounded by King St. at the north end, Front St. on the south side, St. Lawrence Hall and the new St. Lawrence North Market on the east side and Market Square condominium buildings on the west side. (Refer to Appendix 01 Survey.) Market Lane Park is situated within an area of cultural and heritage significance. It is located within the original footprint of Old Town Toronto, and integral to the historic St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood. The park is a designated heritage property under Part V. of the Ontario Heritage Act as it is located within the St. Lawrence Neighbourhood Heritage Conservation District.
The goal of the project is to revitalize Market Lane Park through the design and implementation of park improvements that will respond to the protected heritage character of the area, maintain pedestrian connectivity from King St to Front St., provide visual and physical connectivity to the new St. Lawrence Market north market building which is currently under construction, integrate Indigenous place-making, provide seating and gathering areas, passive recreation opportunities, enhance lighting, site lines and safety features, create a place that is accessible and welcoming for all, preserve and enhance the existing trees, reimagine the existing fountain as a water feature without standing water, integrate the existing public art work at the north end, create a sustainable and accessible design that achieves design excellence and meet the current and future needs of the community.
While the RFP review for landscape work will take place in 2021, it is expected that this park revitalization initiative will begin once the North Market construction is complete. SLNA is kept abreast of this development via our Development Chair Suzanne Kavanagh who also represents the SLNA on the St. Lawrence Market Precinct Advisory Council (SLMPAC). Further updates will be provided when available.
