In an effort to revamp Toronto's Waterfront, Sidewalk Lab, a Google-created start-up is preparing an urban renewal project, which will result in a sleek and modern redesign of the city's underused lakefront space.

The design plans to incorporate cutting-edge technology in an attempt to "build an urban gathering place for businesses, locals and visitors." Although the designs are still in the early phases of development, the project is expected to include free WiFi, autonomous trash systems, clean energy resources and self-driving cars.

Toronto's waterfront design is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by two thirds, while placing the thousands of people who make up Toronto's "Quayside" neighborhood in close proximity to much-needed green space.
