Laird In Focus

“The Eglinton Connects Planning Study identified the Laird Drive and Eglinton Avenue East area as one of six Focus Areas with larger parcels of land fronting Eglinton Avenue that could have a greater capacity to accommodate future population and employment growth.”

“The vision and principles for three Focus Areas (Bayview, Dufferin, and West Side Mall) were advanced to a stage where a clear understanding of the appropriate planning directions had emerged….The remaining Focus Areas (Laird, Don Mills and The Golden Mile) along with mobility Hubs (Mount Dennis and Kennedy) were identified by the Eglinton Connects Planning Study as areas that required additional study and public consultation.  The Laird Focus Area consists of four large sites with large-format, low rise buildings and surface parking located on the southeast corner of Laird Drive and Eglinton Avenue bounded by Eglinton Avenue East, Laird Drive, Vanderhoof Avenue and the western limit of Aerodrome Crescent (Study Area A).”
