The City of Edmonton is financing $99 million in infrastructure investments with revenues from The Quarters Downtown Community Revitalization Levy. These capital investments include upgrading drainage and sanitary services to handle the higher-density residential and commercial development, as well as streetscaping improvements and a new park design and construction. These projects are helping to transform The Quarters Downtown into a diverse and inclusive community.
Kinistinâw Park will be the newest parkspace - a community gathering place - in The Quarters Downtown once construction begins in 2018.
In addition to the City-driven initiatives taking place in The Quarters Downtown, several privately-funded projects are bringing life and vibrancy to the community.
