WALK DETAILS:

Along the Dupont St corridor thousands of new residents will be arriving within the next few years.

 

What was once a sleepy post-industrial region of the west end, situated awkwardly a sufficiently inconvenient distance from the busy commercial strips, will soon become a very densely populated place.

 

This raises new challenges and questions about whether the future Junction Triangle will learn from prior successes and failures of building an environment conducive to fostering community and connection.
