Google sister firm Sidewalk Labs has released its long-awaited master plan for the controversial smart city district it wants to build on Toronto’s waterfront. Sidewalk Labs wants to build a “beta site” on a 12-acre plot of land at Parliament St. and Queens Quay called Quayside. Sidewalk Labs’ master plan must first be approved by Waterfront Toronto and likely other levels of government before any construction can begin. “Along with you (the public), Waterfront Toronto’s board, staff and independent consultants will review Sidewalk Labs’ proposed plan to determine under which conditions, if any, (the Sidewalk Labs master plan) could work for Toronto,” Diamond said in a statement. A Sidewalk Labs spokesperson says the firm hopes the master plan will lead to the building of “something extraordinary” on the waterfront.
