The Idea Quarter, a proposed vision for district transformation that could attract hundreds of technology, retail- and service- based businesses, tens of thousands of workers and  if private developers have their way – residential homeowners as well.


Re-development efforts within the new Idea Quarter are already underway.  Several companies have moved or expanded their presence in the R+T Park including Stantec, The Accelerator Centre, and Enflick.  Since the  spring, a number of technology companies have taken up office space in WIN’s six buildings in the district, including high-growth startups such as Auvik, Axonify, Magnet Forensics and Trustpoint Innovation Technologies.  And the R+T Park has plans for the construction of two new buildings adjacent to the RT ION station.
