As we head into summer, there’s an emerging trend for new urban areas to begin making a splash with projects like the land beam project, where residents and businesses alike will beam out their windows, windowsill and all, to catch a glimpse of the skyline and the city.
The city has a lot of history with such projects.
In the mid-1990s, the city began installing a huge, 3,000-kilometre beam in the area around its convention centre, and in 2004, it began a similar project in downtown Toronto.
These days, the plan is to install a similar beam in all the big downtown core.
It’s an ambitious undertaking, but one that the city is working on, as the project prepares for a major new construction boom.
The beam is expected to be completed in 2019, though it may take longer than that.
As the city continues to rebuild its downtown, the province has begun a pilot project to test out the project in other cities across Canada.
One project, the $8.7-million Land Beam Project in Toronto, was announced in December, and it’s set to be a test bed for the beam in other Canadian cities.
As with the first projects, the beam is supposed to be an interactive experience, allowing visitors to be immersed in the sights, sounds and sounds of the surrounding area.
It could also be used as an extension of city services, including parking, bike lanes and the like.
But the big attraction for the Land Beam project is the fact that the beam itself is going to be in the centre of downtown Toronto, rather than on a residential street.
The project, known as the “City of Lights,” is to be the first of its kind in Canada, and is being billed as the largest urban land beam in North America.
The idea is to put a spotlight on downtown Toronto’s iconic skyline and its downtown core, creating an urban-friendly space that would also be able to serve as a social hub.
As a result, the project will be an economic boon to the city and its surrounding neighbourhoods, according to the Toronto Star.
“This project will generate over $100 million in economic benefits for Toronto, and generate millions more for the city over the course of the lifespan of the project,” according to a statement from the city, which has also stated that the project is expected for completion in 2021.
It has a similar timeline as the first Urban Land Beam in Vancouver, which opened in May 2017, when it was estimated to cost $3.4 billion.
The first Urban Light Beam was funded by the province of Ontario, and has been in operation since December 2018.
But this is the first time that the province is investing in a project of this magnitude.
“It’s a very significant undertaking that we’re doing,” said Robert MacIsaac, director of planning for the province.
“We’re going to get to work on this very soon.”
The province is currently spending $2.5 billion on the project, and MacIsaast expects it will be completed by 2020.
This is a lot more money than what the city had initially spent on the first urban land beams in Vancouver and Calgary, which were funded by an international consortium.
The province has already allocated $1.1 billion for the project.
However, there are a few things that need to be addressed before the city can make any of the projects official.
The projects are not yet official, and the provincial government has yet to finalize the city’s land-use plan, which sets out a plan for the revitalization of downtown and its suburbs.
That document, which is expected in early 2019, is expected by the end of this year.
It is unclear what sort of planning and development would need to take place before the province will approve a project, but some of the key elements are: how the city intends to manage and develop the new infrastructure (including new parking, streetcars, sidewalks, bike paths and a bike-sharing program); how the land-beam will be constructed and where it will go; and what kind of public realm will be protected for it, including public art, parks and waterfront access.
As of now, the plans for the new Urban Land Beams in Toronto and Vancouver do not have a lot in common.
Both projects are about creating a unique experience for visitors, but the city of Toronto is also aiming to create a better place to live and work.
“The goal is to get people to leave their cars in their driveways and walk to the next stop and shop at the grocery store, and to make it a lot easier for people to move around and get out of the way,” said MacIsaack.
“There’s nothing more satisfying to people than a good stroll and a good view of the downtown skyline.”
The project in Toronto is being developed by the city as part of a broader city-wide initiative, called the Toronto Neighbourhoods Transformation Plan, and
