This is the second phase of the Regina Revitalization Initiative, including the redevelopment of approximately 17.5 acres of vacant downtown land formerly used as a Canadian Pacific intermodal yard. With new offices, shops and restaurants, there will be new opportunities for work and play, and a variety of housing options will provide distinctive urban living. With a new walkway connecting this lively district to downtown it will strengthen Regina’s culture and nightlife.
Urban planning and design, as well as engineering consulting work, is currently taking place as part of a public engagement process. Work has been pushed back, based on other community priorities, and it could now be up to five years before anything concrete happens with the lands.
The new step for the project is the renewal of Dewdney Avenue, which is slated to begin in 2020 and last until 2025.
