PLANIFICATION + ANALYSE

and identify hidden opportunities within the Downtown's urban
fabric. The ideas include:
* The Core Circle: Re-imagining the valleys, bluffs and islands
encircling the Downtown as a fully interconnected 900-hectare
landscape system and continuous pedestrian and cycling route
providing an immersive natural experience.
* Great Streets: Enhancing the unique characteristics of
Downtown's most emblematic streets and making them
outstanding civic places and connectors.
* Shoreline Stitch: Re-connecting the Downtown to its
waterfront and linking the east and west Core Circle
landscapes.

proximité du cœur de la capitale. Ensemble, les idées découvrent
les expériences paysagères les plus emblématiques de la ville et
identifient les opportunités cachées. Les idées comprennent :
* Le cercle central : réinventer les vallées, les falaises et les îles
qui entourent le centre-ville comme un réseau paysager de 900
hectares entièrement interconnecté et un parcours pédestre et
cyclable continu offrant une expérience naturelle immersive.
* Les grandes rues : mettre en valeur les caractéristiques
uniques des rues les plus emblématiques et en faire des lieux
civiques.
* L'accès à la rive : reconnecter le centre-ville à son secteur
riverain et relier les paysages est et ouest du cercle central.

* Park Districts: Re-imagining Downtown's distinct districts with
parks at their hearts.

* Les quartiers verts : réinventer les quartiers distincts avec les
parcs à l'esprit.

* Local Places: Re-envisioning local public spaces to better
support community life and expand the utility of our public
realm system.

* Les lieux locaux : réaménager les espaces publics locaux pour
mieux soutenir la vie communautaire et accroître l'utilité de
notre système de domaine public.

The Plan operates across three scales to provide a comprehensive
framework to achieve an expanded, improved and connected
parks and public realm network within Downtown Toronto's
intensifying urban fabric.

« Le projet offre une vision complète d'une ville que les gens
peuvent soutenir, a déclaré le jury. Il s'adresse au public et
privilégie l'élément humain. Non seulement le plan est-il important,
mais le processus pour y arriver l'est aussi. Les AP sont à la tête
d'une vision à l'échelle de la ville et Toronto est le chef de file en ce
qui a trait aux AP qui dirigent le processus. La vision défendue par
les AP a prévalu contre la volonté politique. »

"The project provides a full vision for a city that people can get
behind; it speaks to the public - putting people first in the design of
the city," the jury said. "Not only is the plan important, but so is the
process to get to it. LAs are leading a citywide vision and Toronto is
leading the way in LAs driving the process. The vision is led by LAs,
the vision has prevailed against political will and will be nurtured."
