University Avenue - Toronto's Grand Avenue?

I cannot find a more recent University Avenue thread so post this here.

Any idea what is planned?

6 - Motion to Amend Mayor's Proposed Budget moved by Councillor Ausma Malik (Carried)
That:

1. City Council increase the 2023-2032 Capital Budget for Transportation Services by $198,270 gross, $0 debt, on a one-time basis, for the design and construction of streetscaping and public realm improvement on University Avenue from Wellington Street West to about 60 metres south, fully funded by Section 37 (Planning Act Reserve Funds) community benefits received from the development at 25 York Street for streetscape improvements (Source Account: XR3026-3700558) to the Neighbourhood Improvement Program (CTP423 –01 University Avenue Streetscape).

Yes, and no. LOL

I've managed to figure out where the project is; and its origin, but not the details of any design.

A City Council approved motion in July '18 provided authority for the City to enter into an agreement with the owner of 40 University Avenue located on the southwest corner of University Avenue and Wellington Street West to design and construct streetscape and pedestrian safety improvements adjacent to their site on behalf of the City,

The recent motion was to have that work go ahead, and to increase the budget for same to reflect subsequent construction inflation costs.

That's this piece of sidewalk:
