McGregor Victorian Caroller return to the Village on Dec 10th & 17th!

We are pleased to once again welcome the McGregor Victorian Carollers to bring some holiday season cheer to the Village for a 3rd year!

Weather-permitting, you'll be able to enjoy their beautiful singing on both Saturday December 10th & 17th from 1 to 3pm throughout the village. Not only will they be singing on the four corners of Spadina & Lonsdale, they'll also be popping in to a shop or two to spread the cheer indoors.

Launch event was a great success!

Well that was fun! Both the Launch of the North Gateway Streetscape Project at Suydam Park, and a Laneway Naming Ceremony, were held on Sunday June 12th and a wonderful time was had by all in attendance.

Speakers included Councillor Joe Mihevc, BIA board chair Peter McClelland, Plant Architect Inc's Lisa Rapoport, and local resident, and laneway naming champion, Susan Q. Wilson.

The North Gateway Streetscape Project is Nearly Complete

While we're not done quite yet, the North Gateway Streetscape Project is very near completion and is really looking fantastic. The gateway sign post will soon be installed at the north end of the park marking the north entrance into the village, and the water station will be installed in spring. In the meantime, while there are a few post-installation deficiencies to be addressed, the new benches and lights are ready to be enjoyed.

We'll be hosting a Spring launch event sometime in June and will post more details here as they become available.

Fall Construction Update

With both the North Gateway Streetscape Project at Suydam Park, and the Thelma/Spadina Parking Lot expansion under way at the same time, we've had fences up and more than our fair share of construction noise and disruption this summer. The good news is that both projects are well underway and despite notable setbacks, they are nearing completion. We can't wait to see the end results and to wave goodbye to the fences!
