1 1 WELCOME and introduction Mobility Hub Locations within Burlington STUDY OVERVIEW STUDY OBJECTIVES The City of Burlington is developing four Area Specific Plans, one for each of Burlington s Mobility Hubs that will support the future redevelopment and intensification of these areas while also achieving the City s goal to Grow Bold by creating transit-oriented, pedestrian-friendly and sustainable neighbourhoods where people can live, work, shop and play. The study contains two stages: Stage 1 includes background research and analysis and the completion of preliminary studies to inform the development of land use concepts for each mobility hub. Stage 2 includes the development of detailed studies based on a City Council endorsed land use concept and completion of a comprehensive Area Specific Plan. This work is informed by the Mobility Hubs Opportunities and Constraints Study, completed in 2014, which provided a high level analysis of each Mobility Hub and informed the development of the study areas for each Area Specific Plan. The study includes the following primary objectives: A built form that supports and promotes non-automobile oriented travel while achieving a high quality public realm and architectural design excellence; Land use and transportation plans that support and prioritize pedestrians, cyclists and transit users; Providing a mix of housing types that support housing affordability and the attraction of a broad range of demographics, including families; Providing a mix of uses within walking distance of transit that will create complete, compact and sustainable communities; The identification of future infrastructure needs and new opportunities for community infrastructure; The creation of new parks, trails, and open spaces; and The conservation of significant natural and heritage resources.

2 2 MOBILITY HUBS AND THE BIG MOVE WHAT IS A MOBILITY HUB? Mobility hubs are neighbourhoods located around major transit stations. They serve a critical function in the regional transportation system as the origin, destination, or transfer point for a significant portion of trips. They are places of connectivity where all modes of transportation - from walking to rapid transit - come together seamlessly, and where there is a concentration of opportunities to live, work, shop and play. MOBILITY HUBS AND THE BIG MOVE The Big Move is the Province s transportation master plan. A key strategy of The Big Move is to build a network of 51 mobility hubs connecting the GTHA. Generally speaking mobility hubs are: Located where two or more regional rapid transit lines intersect and where there is expected to be significant passenger activity; Forecast to achieve a higher density of people and jobs than the surrounding area; and Elements of a mobility hub The Big Move Forecast to achieve 4,500 or more combined peak period boardings and alightings by MOBILITY HUBS IN THE GREATER TORONTO AND HAMILTON AREA The Big Move Mobility Hubs Diagram

3 3 MOBILITY HUB characteristics CHARACTERISTICS OF A MOBILITY HUB Integrated Transit Providing direct, weather-protected access between all modes of transit, including Via Rail, GO Transit, and Burlington Transit. Connected Stations As new development occurs around stations, the design and location of buildings will ensure visual and physical connections to the existing station. Active Transportation A Walkable Area Promote active transportation, including walking, cycling and transit. Bicycle lockers and storage will be provided at key destinations. Provide attractive and active streetscapes that encourage walking and provide places to stop and socialize. Great Streets Street trees, wide sidewalks, façade improvements, seating, etc. will result in a more pedestriansupportive streetscape. Mixed-Use Buildings Promote safe, active streets through mixed use buildings that provide retail at grade with residential/office uses above. Mix of Uses A mix of uses, including employment, residential, retail and office will ensure a critical mass of people are living and working in the mobility hubs. Landmark Buildings Taller buildings will be strategically located at key intersections to create a sense of arrival and assist in wayfinding throughout the hubs.

7 7 OPPORTUNITIES AND CONSTRAINTS STUDY 2014 KEY RECOMMENDATIONS Appleby GO Station is the eastern gateway to the City of Burlington and will remain an important industrial and employment destination north of the rail lines. At strategic locations, privately-owned public spaces should provide further opportunities to enhance the pedestrian experience, while providing direct connections to Appleby GO Station and nearby Sherwood Forest Park. LAND USE NEW BUILDINGS CIRCULATION Protect and enhance existing and stable employment uses. Locate new prestige office uses along Fairview Street and Harvester Road, and light industrial uses along internal streets near the rail corridor. Protect and enhance Sherwood Forest Park and Community Centre as a key destination (a Master Plan is currently underway). Establish nodes and entryways along Appleby Line at Fairview and Harvester. These should be characterized by landmark buildings, urban plazas, public art, enhanced landscaping, facade design, a higher order of streetscaping, and information and wayfinding elements. Redevelop underutilized and vacant sites to create a continuous and highquality streetscape. Locate mid-rise buildings near the Appleby GO Station, and the highest density along the rail corridor and the area at Appleby Line and Fairview Road. New development adjacent to the existing creek should explore opportunities to enhance the function of the creek, including aquatic habitat, water quality, and hydrogeological conditions. Redevelop the GO Station as a key destination, including plaza areas, ancillary retail uses (i.e. cafe), wayfinding, etc. Enhance pedestrian and vehicle connections to downtown along New Street, and via the Centennial Trail. Enhance access and views to Sherwood Forest Park. Extend existing connections and create new ones within the mobility hub area to maximize permeability of large blocks. Due to the high volume of traffic on Harvester Road, transit service requires provisions of transit priority where necessary, as indicated in the Transportation Master Plan. Explore the potential to re-naturalize the drainage channels at Appleby Go Station to provide unique pedestrian and cyclist links. Upgraded public realm, including street trees and enhanced landscaping, to enhance aesthetics and attract private investment. Active uses (i.e. office, R&D) located at the street edge with industrial at the rear Infill vacant lots with high-quality prestige employment uses. Encourage facade upgrades for existing buildings. High-quality open spaces to activate and animate the public realm, and provite amenity space for nearby employees. Precedent image demonstrating building and street design that promotes development of a human scale complete community with a focus on employment within the Appleby Mobility Hub.

8 8 Guiding Principles 1. Establish Neighbourhood Walking Sheds as a Structure to Direct Growth. Within each 400 metre neighourhood walking shed plan for a context sensitive mix of uses, building heights and open spaces; including significant civic space within the Station Neighbourhood. 2. Locate density along primary streets and increase opportunities for height at key intersections and close to the GO station. The greatest heights should be along Appleby Line and along the Rail Corridor. 3. Transition height down to and from existing neighborhoods. Provide a sensitive transition to existing neighborhoods to the south and east. New buildings should be designed to protect light, views, and privacy of existing housing. 4. Enhance physical and visual connections Provide strong visual and physical connections from Harvester Road and Fairview Street east to the GO station and along Appleby Line south from the QEW. Explore the potential to re-naturalize the drainage channels to provide unique pedestrian and cyclist links. 5. Promote a balanced transportation network. improve connections and promote a balanced multi-modal transportation system including a significant role for public transit, cycling, and walking. 6. Build walkable and inviting streets and open spaces Streets within the Mobility Hub will be pedestrian-oriented, and accessible for people of all ages and abilities. they will be framed by animated building edges with wide sidewalks, weather protection, lighting, and way finding.
