Regent Street and three other streets are receiving a $12.8 million facelift to become what officials are calling “a cultural byway.” The pedestrian-friendly walkways will feature shops, restaurants and a public plaza, now called the McCarthey Plaza. That’s a nod to Regent Street’s history as home to the city’s newspaper presses.
