Everyone is King: Design Build Competition

The King Street Transit Pilot between Bathurst Street and Jarvis Street aims to improve transit reliability, speed, and capacity. In addition, the Pilot objectives are to support economic prosperity and improve place-making.

The City of Toronto has launched a design-build competition, 'Everyone is King' to animate the 19 new curb lane public spaces in the King Street Transit Pilot. The competition has two streams:

Stream 1: Temporary Public Space Installations – Concept Proposals due on February 15, 2018
Public Space Installations (PSIs) are temporary creative designs that encourage people to gather, sit and enjoy King Street.  These creative installations may include road murals, seating, art, plants, games, etc.  The number of installations will depend on how many local businesses choose to activate the spaces. Proposals can be short-term (pop-ups), medium (3 months) or last for the duration of the pilot.

Stream 2: Durable Destination Parklets – Expressions of Interest due on January 29, 2018
Destination Parklets (DPs) are durable accessible seating areas or green spaces placed adjacent to sidewalks in the curb lanes. Two City-funded King Street parklets will showcase design excellence through the creation of resilient, movable and reusable public amenities. After the Pilot, these parklets will continue to be enjoyed, perhaps in another part of the City.

The winning Temporary Public Space Installations will be rolled out over the duration of the King Street Pilot and the Durable Destination Parklets will be in place as of April 15, 2018.
