A major redevelopment plan maybe underway at Bayview Village.
The shopping centre, located in the city’s north end, is looking to modernize the southwest portion of its grounds bringing out the Centre to Sheppard.
A website dedicated to The Future of Bayview Village shares the ideas and plans of the vision, which sees the work of architects Hariri Pontarini, Dialog, and Janet Rosenberg & Studio coming together.
The new space would include a multi-level storefront, and incorporate residential and retail elements. It would also have a new underground access to connect transit to Bayview Village.
The plan also includes a dedicated public space that will form a new urban town square, allowing for different events and opportunities for the community to come together all year long, according to the website.
A park in the Village’s southwest corner will anchor the site and act as an urban plaza. Water features and outdoor seating areas are planned to make for a little urban escape, all within steps of the subway.
Bayview Village’s redevelopment plan is yet to go to Council, and developers are accepting the public’s comments and ideas for now.
