Sidewalk Labs to Test its Smart Cities Ideas in Toronto
"Google's Sidewalk Labs has been selected as the top candidate to turn part of Toronto's waterfront into a smart neighbourhood designed to integrate new technology and advance sustainable architecture and urban design," reports Alex Bozikovic.
"The project, known as Quayside, aims to turn 4.9 hectares (12 acres) of waterfront land near Parliament Street and Queens Quay East into a mixed-use community that Waterfront Toronto says will use advanced technology, innovative building techniques and funding to encourage 'climate-positive urban development,'" adds Bozikovic.
The article includes more detail on what's know about the project so far.
