Future Kingston is a citizens group who believe in a progressive, authentic, living and changing Kingston.
A Kingston that identifies and takes action to ensure our city is a great place to work for the next 25 years. A city that attracts young professionals to visit and to move here to grow our work force, develop their careers and start their business.
Our current focus is to further the discussion regarding the benefits of high rise residential intensification in Downtown.
We believe that, in terms of economics, the environment, health and wellness, cultural vitality, and downtown look and feel – high rises are currently an astounding opportunity. An opportunity created by the City’s $100 million spent on infrastructure projects and the $100 million investment in amenities (The Rodgers K-Rock Centre, The Grand Theatre, Springer Market Square and Rink, Artillery Park, etc.).
These, and improvements to transit, bike lanes, as well as planned investment in Confederation Park, Breakwater Walkway, Sydenham Street parkette, and Doug Fluher Park – have combined to create a desirable and livable urban area.
Now is the time to seize this opportunity and say “yes” to high rise residential intensification downtown.
