We want to know what you think
Ideas are now taking shape for a dynamic, mixed-use area that will complement both Downtown and the Warehouse District.
Around 200 Reginans attended an open house on May 16 to review three redevelopment concepts for the Railyard site, based in part on feedback from previous consultations. Watch and share the highlights video and review the presentation made by Urban Strategies Inc., the lead urban planning and design consultants on the project.
Since then, over 700 people have provided feedback through an online survey.
Feedback on the three concepts will inform and guide our next steps as we implement this project. Collaboration with land owners, internal and external stakeholders and the public will help ensure plans reflect a collective vision for the site.

The City of Regina is leading the planning and redevelopment of the 17.5 acre (7 ha) Railyard site in the centre of the city, formerly occupied by a railway intermodal facility. Over the next 10-15 years, the Railyard site will be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use area that complements both Downtown and the Warehouse District.
In August 2015, we retained a consultant team led by Urban Strategies Inc. and WSP Group, and including Urbanics Consultants Ltd. and P3Architecture to undertake technical studies and prepare plans to guide redevelopment.
We hosted a public open house on December 2, 2015 for residents and stakeholders to learn more about the Railyard Renewal Project and share their ideas and aspirations for the future of the former railyard. The open house included a presentation, as well as an opportunity to meet the project team and share questions, ideas and feedback directly.
Following a consultative, public process, plans are expected be completed by the end of 2016.
About the Railyard Site
The relocation of Canadian Pacific Railway’s intermodal facility has freed up 17.5 acres (7 ha) of brownfield land for redevelopment. This site was once Regina’s hub and link to the rest of Canada.
Planning Process & Timeline
Planning for the Railyard site’s redevelopment is taking place in four phases, beginning in October 2015. With Phases 1 and 2 now complete (project initiation and analysis), Phase 3 (Vision & Concepts) is underway.
