The plans have sparked both concerns and curiosity from the public, fueled further by a lack of information on how it will ultimately come to fruition, aside from a series of simple sketches. Sidewalk Labs also detailed a system of underground tunnels where robots can transport waste and freight out of the public's sight.
One of the concept images is shown above. Alphabet-owned Sidewalk Labs teamed up with Toronto Waterfront to develop a small, smart city called Quayside.
Sidewalk Labs made the plans public in mid-February after they were leaked months ahead of schedule by the Canadian publication, according to Fast Company. The firm plans to erect mid-rise apartments, offices, shops, and a school on a acre site along the eastern waterfront in a deal with Waterfront Toronto. The smart city will also be home to an advanced power grid made up of solar panels and battery storage, a smart waste management system, and a thermal grid that relies on waste heat and geothermal energy.
And, the streets will be designed without curbs to boost mobility as a shift toward self-driving vehicles becomes feasible. Eventually, they hope this will blossom to cover hundreds of acres.
According to the newly-published plans, Phase 1 of the project could fit 5, residents in a total of 3, housing units. It will also create 3, on-site jobs. For now, however, Sidewalk Labs' detailed plans for Quayside remain in the concept phase and have yet to be approved by Waterfront Toronto and Alphabet.
