The corridor of the King St. transit pilot is getting a much needed facelift with the installation of new public spaces, a move the city hopes could draw more people.
In a press release on Thursday, the city announced that they have begun installing public spaces along King St. between Bathurst and Jarvis Sts., the stretch involved in the pilot. Almost 30 new sites will be opened, which the city says will add “ to the vibrancy of the street.”
The designs for 10 of the new spaces were selected from a city-held design competition, Everyone is King. The installations are expected to be completed by the end of May and most will remain for the duration of the transit pilot.
