3 Project Background There are two components to the Hamilton Road Project: 1. Infrastructure Renewal which will see new municipal services installed along Hamilton Road from Chesley Avenue to Egerton Street and on Sackville Street in 2018; 2. Streetscape Master Plan for the entire section of Hamilton Road from Horton Street to Highbury Avenue The Hamilton Road Streetscape Master Plan was developed in coordination with the Hamilton Community Improvement Plan, parts of this plan will be incorporated into the restoration works for the 2018 construction project. 3

4 Land Use Context 4

5 Existing Condition Urban Grid 1. Street pattern with angled lots 2. Dominant access to Hamilton Road is private driveway H a m i l t o n R o a d 3. Lack of connection to active transport network C o r r i d o r 4. Long crosswalks from angled street patterns S t r e e t s c a p e M a s t e r P l a n 5. Cross streets infrequently cross through 5

6 Existing Condition - Streetscape 6. Parking along lot frontage 7. Lack of street furniture 8. Lack of street trees 9. Narrow sidewalks shared with hydro poles 6

7 Existing Condition Built Form 10. Surface parking along boulevard frontage 11. Built form of single detached residential 12. Large parking lots at intersections 13. Lack of continuous street wall (exception: East Street) 7

8 Urban Design SWOT Analysis Strengths Arterial connection to/from Downtown Independent business community Multicultural neighbourhoods City open to new ideas Threats Prevailing crime and safety concerns Budgets and timelines Period of adjustment to new traffic regimen Maintenance overlooked or deferred Weaknesses Discontinuous street wall High traffic volumes and presence of heavy trucks Tight ROW and narrow public realm Auto dominated travel mode Key Challenges DISCONTINUOUS STREET WALL BY DIAGONAL GRID; PLACEMAKING WITHIN TIGHT AUTO DOMINATED INTERSECTIONS; NEED STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS WITHIN NARROW PUBLIC REALM 8

9 Urban Design SWOT Analysis Opportunities Reconfigure Hamilton+Egerton intersection Narrower traffic lanes Private tree planting incentive Shared street design at Sackville LID (rain gardens) at Pearl PED signalized crosswalk at Little Hill and Mamelon Tree planting, refined program at existing/potential park space Horton, Adelaide, Trafalgar, Delaware, Pine Lawn Ave Linear flowering shrub borders north/south sides OR shade tree north side, shrub border south side dependent on traffic alignments Potential for intensification north side, between Sackville and Egerton 9

10 Public Realm Making - Objectives Five objectives to transform Hamilton Road into an Inviting And Vibrant Place 1 Create a Strong Identity for Hamilton Road Corridor 2 Shift from an Auto Dominated Throughway to a Shared Place 10

11 Public Realm Making - Objectives 3 Maximize Street Trees and Opportunities for Greenscape 4 Reclaim and Enhance the Public Realm / Provide Community Destinations 11

12 Public Realm Making - Objectives 5 Encourage a Continuous and Animated Street Wall and Mixed Use Intensification 12

13 Public Realm Making The Big Moves 1 Establish public realm destinations through utilizing available spaces (i.e. Woonerf, Civic Park at Horton St. E, Plaza at Sackville St.) 13

14 Overarching Public Realm Making Goals 2 Optimize bus stop locations (i.e. Adelaide St. N, Rectory St., Egerton St.) 14

15 Overarching Public Realm Making Goals 3 Replace small streets with parkettes to expand public realm (i.e. Little Hill St., Trafalgar St., Sackville St.) 15

16 Overarching Public Realm Making Goals 4 Reconfiguration of traffic at Ham+Eggs intersection 16

17 Overarching Public Realm Making Goals 5 Provide linearscape defining corridor streetscape (planting strips, street trees, street banners and planters) 17

18 Overarching Public Realm Making Goals 6 Create paving palette inspired by the unique diagonal pattern and context (paving pattern, color) 18

19 Overarching Public Realm Making Goals 7 Create a strong identity through public art (i.e. public art in major public open spaces, banner design, hydro pole beautification) 19

21 PRELIMINARY STREETSCAPE APPROACH Main Street Typology Typical Condition West of Hamilton & Trafalgar & Egerton looking East 21

22 PRELIMINARY STREETSCAPE APPROACH Main Street Typology Constrained Condition Between Adelaide & William Looking East 22

23 PRELIMINARY STREETSCAPE APPROACH Main Street Typology Typical Intersection Condition East of Hamilton & Rectory Looking West Note: The dimension of this cross section is based on existing condition due to property constraints. 23

24 PRELIMINARY STREETSCAPE APPROACHES Civic Boulevard Typology Typical Condition Between Mamelon & Inkerman Looking East 24

25 PRELIMINARY STREETSCAPE APPROACHES Civic Boulevard Typology Constrained Intersection Condition West of Rectory Looking East 25

26 Key Intersections for Intervention 26

27 A -- HAMILTON / HORTON Gateway Option 1 The west end of our project area contains great scale and opportunity for a new civic park and community hub with shared streetscapes. Heritage Community Hub Lawn Approaches: Turn Hamilton Rd to woonerf street Wide paths and benches Woonerf Wood carving gallery Existing Integrate the city owned green space on both sides of Hamilton Rd into one civic park as a gateway amenity, with sensitive landscape treatment for railway land Unlock future intensification and culture and industrial heritage regeneration for a new city place just outside downtown Maximize greenscape and provide programmable space for community use. Showcase of local arts of the carved wood and industrial heritage of the railway 27

28 A HAMILTON / HORTON Gateway Option 2 Approaches: Sod Planter/ Bench Turn Hamilton Road into a woonerf street Highlight the rail corridor with a trellis element with accent lighting and built in seating, when the rail operations terminate in the long term Gateway Feature Woonerf Plaza Trellis Public Art Reference the unique nature of Hamilton Road through celebrating the diagonal pattern of the urban context Develop a strong sense of place through custom unique planters/ benches Create a sense of visual cohesion between the two open spaces Create a sense of arrival to Hamilton Road through a gateway feature Provide opportunity to showcase public art 28

29 B -- HAMILTON / ADELAIDE Private tree planting LID curb planters Parkette Seasonal planters Far-side bus stop Corner paving treatments Far-side bus stop Linear greenspace connector Existing This is a major vehicular crossroads with constrained room for the public realm. Approaches: Special paving treatment to define the public realm at the intersection Switch the bus stops from the existing constrained locations to the opposite quadrants far side locations for more generous experience Provide a linear green path for active transportation to avoid the intersection Provide decorative street banners to improve identity Rain Garden Bus Stop, Boulevard de Maisonneuve, Montreal 29

30 C -- HAMILTON / LITTLE HILL / MAMELON Treed plaza Parkette Flowering shrub borders Private tree planting Controlled pedestrian crossing Private tree planting Little Hill ends in a new spacious plaza at Hamilton Road, with seating for worshippers, neighbourhood chats, and potential increased retail/café at corner building. Approaches: Close off Little Hill exit to Hamilton Rd and turn the space into a plaza in front of the church/mosque Provide a neighbourhood focal point for respite and relaxation Clustered tree planting provides shade and focal areas Special paving treatment of the parkette is coordinated with the overall corridor paving theme Encourage LID streetscape treatment, permeable paving and rain garden at locations applicable, e.g. Pearl Street Existing 30

31 D -- HAMILTON / RECTORY Farmers market POPS bus stop / parkette City tree plantings Seasonal planters Seasonal planters Parkette The tight built form and narrow ROW provides little opportunity for expanded public space, however there is an opportunity of a Privately Owned Public Space (POPS) at northwest corner would provide a generous new bus stop, parkette, and canopy shade trees. Approaches: Switch the bus stops from the existing constrained locations to the opposite quadrants far side locations for more generous experience Special paving treatment to define the public realm at the intersection coordinated with the overall corridor paving theme Provide decorative street banners to improve identity Existing 31

32 E HAMILTON / SACKVILLE Library Beer Store Approaches: Blend recent library plaza/bench design into new plaza space with planters, benches, flexibility for events Tie in adjacent lot pedestrian entry to new plaza space for expanded public realm and local retail scene Ped crossing relocated Existing With a successful library as anchor, lower Sackville becomes a place for people and art and urban forest cafes. 32

33 E HAMILTON / EGERTON Gateway Concept The diagonal and grid tension are most felt here and the balance of public realm and traffic realm produce a better urban fabric this Main Street. Public Art, Trees, Benches Far-side bus stop Woonerf Parkette Bus stop Entrance to staff parking Plaza Public Art, Refuge island Benches Existing Canopy tree planting Approaches: Expand the public realm in front of the church by closing off 1 through lane on Trafalgar to form expanded street plaza in the Hub of Main Street Reclaim the triangular open space between Hamilton and Trafalgar on the west quadrant, for an urban park amenity with enhanced landscape Rethink the configuration of this fivelegged crossroads to improve pedestrian crossing times Public art framing either end of the bow tie streetscape Provide public arts, street banners, enhanced pedestrian lighting and theme paving pattern to establish identity and the sense of arrival 33

34 F -- HAMILTON / HIGHBURY School+bus stop connectivity Private tree plantings Private tree plantings Refined neighbourhood park plaza Layby Parking Private tree plantings Treed median gateway Existing Hamilton Road and Highbury Avenue will announce the entry into the Mixed Use Hamilton Corridor, indicating the transition from Highway into Main Street/Civic Boulevard. Approaches: Encourage Public arts as the gateway feature Provide trees in the median to enhance streetscape within the constrained ROW Street banners, enhanced pedestrian lighting and theme paving pattern to establish the sense of arrival and branding of Hamilton Corridor Traffic calming and a rethink of parking at East St retail shops will optimize public safety and distinguish Hamilton Road from Highway
