The amendments to the July 2018 agreement also include a provision to terminate after three months if “certain threshold issues” outlined by Stephen Diamond, Waterfront Toronto’s board chair, are not addressed. Andrew Tumilty, media relations at Waterfront Toronto, told The Logic that certain areas of Sidewalk Labs’ Master Innovation and Development Plan (MIDP), released at the end of June, are “non-starters” for the corporation. The extension was decided on after a “series of discussions” between the two companies—though there was no formal meeting—and both parties “agreed on everything collaboratively.” The parties “felt it made sense to create a deadline for the resolution of major outstanding issues before significant parts of that evaluation process commence,” said Keerthana Rang, communications associate at Sidewalk Labs.
