The City of Regina is leading the largest urban revitalization project in the city’s history, the three phased Regina Revitalization Initiative (RRI).
Phase 1 - Construction and opening of Mosaic Stadium, a community gathering place to be enjoyed for generations to come. The 33,000 seat multi-purpose facility hosts numerous sports organizations and is the home of the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders. Construction of Mosaic Stadium began in 2014 and was formally opened in the summer of 2017. The stadium is operated by Evraz Place, the largest interconnected event complex in Canada.
Phase 2 - The Railyard Renewal Project will transform 17.5 acres of former railyard into a vibrant and unique place that connects neighbourhoods and supports the ongoing revitalization of Regina’s City Centre. In November 2018, the Government of Canada, Province of Saskatchewan and City of Regina jointly committed more than $33.6 million to fund numerous improvements on Dewdney Avenue. This investment will support site improvements including environmental remediation of the site, installing utility infrastructure and developing new public spaces. Proposed work also includes a new pedestrian bridge that links Regina’s Warehouse District to downtown.
This winter a draft neighbourhood plan for the Railyard Renewal Project will be submitted for regulatory review. The draft plan was built by the city-led project team and included one of the most extensive community and stakeholder consultation processes in Regina’s history.
Phase 3 - The long-term redevelopment of Taylor Field Neighbourhood. With the decommissioning of historic Mosaic Stadium (Taylor Field) the City has an exciting opportunity to rejuvenate one of Regina’s historic neighbourhoods with approximately 20 acres available for future development.
