Smart City of the Future: Sidewalk Toronto

Written On October 20, 2017

A joint effort by Waterfront Toronto and Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs. Sidewalk Toronto aims to combine forward-thinking urban design and new digital technology to create people-centred neighbourhoods that achieve precedent-setting levels of sustainability, affordability, mobility, and economic opportunity.

The project will begin with a new neighbourhood named Quayside, located at Parliament Slip at the southeast end of Downtown Toronto. The objectives are as follows:

  • Establish a complete community that improves quality of life for a diverse population of residents, workers, and visitors.
  • Create a destination for people, companies, startups, and local organizations to advance solutions to the challenges facing cities, such as energy use, housing affordability, and transportation.
  • Make Toronto the global hub of a rising new industry: urban innovation.
  • Serve as a model for sustainable neighbourhoods throughout Toronto and cities around the world.

On November 1st, Sidewalk Toronto will be hosting a Town Hall meeting where the public is encouraged to come out and share ideas, concerns, and hopes regarding the project. Visit to learn more about this exciting milestone in the city.
