PLANNING & ANALYSIS – National Honour
College Quarter is a 59 hectare (146 acre) land area owned by the University of Saskatchewan located south of the main campus area. The Master Plan framework establishes a street and block pattern; a series of linked dynamic public spaces: building massing; an open space system; tree-lined pedestrian and bicycle circulation networks; and design standards that will result in a
visionary, sustainable campus environment unrivalled in Canada.
The 860-metre long Greenway is designedas the major structuring `public realm’ element of College Quarter. lt is the central social “spine” that links the building-based activities and public spaces together, from north to south. College Quarter creates the `bridge’ bringing the community and the main university campus together as a central focus of Saskatoon.

PLANNING & ANALYSIS – National Merit
The Master Plan is framed within an indepth understanding of natural features along 35 km of the Grand River, and the diversity and richness of evidence of 11,000 years of settlement history.
The Waterfront Master Plan is the compilation of input received from carefully listening to all of the stakeholders that was used to shape the defining principles and initatives for 6 layers of the Plan: environment, parks, access, heritage and culture, destinations and neighbourhoods and districts.
The complexity of issues were resolved to result in dozens of recommendations that are mutally supportive and complementary to each ether.
The Waterfront Master Plan was unanimously adopted by Council and broadly endorsed by the community.
