About the study

This work is part of the land use study and urban design concept plan for the York Road and Elizabeth Street neighbourhood. The study area runs along York Road from Stevenson Street South—capturing part of Johnson Street—to Watson Parkway South and is bounded by the rail line to the north. The study area also includes the south side of York Road between Stevenson Street and Victoria Road.

The recommended land use study considers:

  • land use along York Road, Victoria Road and Stevenson Street
  • appropriate land uses along the rail corridor
  • identifying redevelopment and intensification opportunities
  • determining the suitable amount of employment lands in the study area
  • examining the mixed business and service/commercial land use designations
  • transition between residential and non-residential uses
  • identification of cultural heritage resources and adding properties to the municipal heritage register
