help name a waterfront street

Here’s a chance to put your stamp on the waterfront!

We’re looking for a street name for the Main Waterfront Drive in the new Bayside Toronto development. And since it’s your waterfront, we want your help. Think about some of the iconic street names in our city – Bay Street, Yonge Street, Spadina Avenue – do you have a great waterfront street name to add to the list?

You’ve got two ways to participate.

1. Submit a Name – send as many street name ideas as you want between March 13 and March 27. To submit a name, go to Waterfront Toronto’s Facebook page; Tweet your name using the hashtag #waterfrontstreet or go online.

Once the submissions phase is over, our Selection Committee will review the names and create a shortlist for voting.

2. Vote – tell us your favourite name. You can vote between April 22 and May 2.

When the voting period ends, we’ll tally up all your input and announce the new street name in May 2014.


More about the Waterfront Street

The street we’re naming is “Main Street” for the new Bayside Toronto development. It connects to Queens Quay Boulevard and runs along the water’s edge. It provides access to homes, shops, restaurants, offices – and the lake.

More about the Neighbourhood

Bayside Toronto is a 10-acre site on the east side of East Bayfront. It’s a new kind of neighbourhood where no detail has been overlooked. A place with stunning architecture, unique parks and waterside promenades. A neighbourhood where bustling shops and restaurants dot tree-lined streets. An intelligent community where everyone is connected to Canada’s first open access ultra-high speed broadband network. Hines is Bayside Toronto’s master developer and Tridel is the residential developer. The first residential building at Bayside Toronto is called Aqualina – and it’s located on the west side of the main waterfront drive.

Street Naming Policy

Your street name must adhere to the City of Toronto’s Honourific and Street Naming Policy and should reflect the street’s waterfront location in one of Toronto’s newest, most sustainable and technologically-advanced communities. Please review the official rules for “Help Name a Waterfront Street” before you submit your street name. The winning name must be formally approved by the City of Toronto.
