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, the City 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. Following a consultative, public process, the plans are expected be completed in the fall of 2016.
The City of Regina, along with a team of consultants 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 site. The open house included a presentation, as well as an opportunity to meet the project team and share questions, ideas and feedback directly.
