University District is a place to gather and enjoy the city, and the people around us. The neighbourhood offers diverse dining options, from pubs to restaurants to cafes. A central piazza-style market will host performances, farmer’s markets, and public art.
A modern Main Street promenade will present a mix of conveniences, artisanal shops, services, and unique gathering spaces, all supported by street furniture, plants and lighting. Patio spaces throughout the streetscape will foster a sense of welcoming, safety, and social connections.
The world’s best cities have an architectural sense of discovery – it feels like there’s a surprise around every corner. UD will be no different. Through a progressive architectural ethos, the community will take on a high quality, built-over-time look and feel.
University District is a product of the university’s best minds, and world-class thought leadership in every field is a part of its identity. The neighbourhood will benefit from this close proximity, hosting visiting lecturers from around the world, notable alumni, and ongoing events over the years.
