In January 1989 a Task Force was created to "establish a formal structure and strategy under which an integrated redevelopment of the South Downtown can be pursued". The Mayor initiated the work of the Task Force by presenting Task Force members, representing the City, Province, and Meewasin, with his "Vision" of South Downtown's potential. The Task Force's mission was to create within South Downtown "a focus for the social and cultural activites of the City" in a pedestrial oriented, mixed use environment. Goals for the development were: to create a separate district that acts as a transition between the downtown core and the river, defining the edge of the existing core and linking it with riverbank parks; to provide the general public direct access to the river in a space that is designed to accommodate large groups of people; and to draw people downtown by creating a new and exciting environment.
