The Forks Concept Plans for 2010 - 2020

Today the Forks North Portage Partnership released their ten year concept plan (2010 - 2020) for development at The Forks.

Their plans range from the specific, such as the upcoming Parks Canada - Variety Heritage Adventure Park, to very general such as a commitment to work with the other levels of government to ensure a 'Waterfront Vision' that encompasses more land and development than what is currently considered 'the waterfront'.

What captured the most attention was the re-introduction of an old idea: the possibility of housing units at what is called the rail side lot adjacent to the CN tracks. The proposal envisions a 10 storey tower with a mix of 'market affordable' rental and owned units.

There are open house opportunities through the end of April.
