A Community Open House was held on November 28, 2018 to present and seek input into preliminary concept designs for this project. View the presentations boards and share your feedback with us!
The project objective is to generate a long-term concept plan and short term detailed design (associated with Phase 1 implementation) for the Thames Valley Corridor (TVC) on the north side of the Thames River between Wellington Street and Maitland Street, within the Old Victoria Hospital Lands.
The concept plan and detailed design developed from this study will support the goals and objectives of the SoHo Community Improvement Plan and be consistent with Official Plan policies detailed in the Old Victoria Hospital Lands (OVHL) Secondary Plan, while taking into consideration the ‘Ribbon of the Thames’ vision and the City’s desire to maximize the area and value of future OVHL development lands.

The proposed Thames Valley Parkway and Urban Park Corridor between Colborne and Wellington Street will support public gatherings, provide spaces that celebrate the surrounding natural beauty of the Thames Valley Corridor, encourage active transportation (cycling, walking, etc.) and connect the SoHo neighbourhood to London’s park system and the downtown. The space will include decorative concrete or interlocking stone surfaces and walkways, seating, shade trees, asphalt pathways and pedestrian scale lighting.
