TOcore is a three-year inter-divisional initiative, led by City Planning. The purpose of the Study is to ensure growth positively contributes to Toronto’s Downtown as a great place to live, work, learn, play and invest. It will do so by determining: a) how future growth will be accommodated, shaped and managed, and b) what physical and social infrastructure will be needed, where it should go and how it will be secured. The TOcore Study is a response to the rapid intensification of Downtown that is placing pressure on finite hard and soft infrastructure assets. An important aspect of TOcore is the planning for the important community services and facilities to maintain a high quality of life within complete communities as growth and intensification proceeds.
