Urban designer to talk about Toronto's Eglinton Avenue
Antoine Grumbach, an internationally renowned architect and urban designer, will present a free public talk about opportunities he sees for redeveloping Eglinton Avenue.

Date: Wednesday, November 28
Time: 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)
Location: North Toronto Collegiate Institute, 17 Broadway Ave. (two blocks north of Eglinton Avenue, east of Yonge Street), Toronto

Grumbach is visiting Toronto as part of the City of Toronto's Eglinton Connects, formerly known as the Eglinton Planning Study. He guided public realm improvements that were part of Le Tramway in Paris, France, and is now working on an expansion of Moscow's light rapid transit (LRT).

Eglinton Connects will make recommendations on the development potential of, and improvements to, Eglinton Avenue from Jane Street to Kennedy subway station. Work on Eglinton Avenue is being undertaken in conjunction with Eglinton LRT construction.
