Shopping in Yorkville is about to look a lot different
A new addition to Yorkville's interconnected pedestrian pathway is about to transform the neighbourhood and bring with it the second location of one of the city's top restaurants.
The series of pedestrian walkways that work to connect that various blocks that make up the upscale retail and restaurant district is set to be joined by another in between Yorkville Avenue and Cumberland.
The project - known as Yorkville Lane - looks to add an additional walkway connecting the two main streets and include a spacious courtyard on the north end.
The new pathway will also feature outdoor light fixtures strewn overheard and set into the granite walkway to enhance the nighttime ambiance.
The project isn't just a pathway, either. The new passage will lie at the base of a new, nearly completed luxury condo called The Cumberland where units go for as much as $25 million.
The bottom of the building will house a new location Alo as it looks to expand beyond Queen West with a spot here featuring a courtyard patio.
It's all part of the larger transformation Yorkville is currently undergoing that includes many new retail shops and public spaces, with Yorkville lane serving as a welcome addition to the already pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood.
