Eglinton Corridor talks continue with high profile speaker

One of the men behind Le Tramway in Paris and the Moscow LRT expansion is giving a talk on Wednesday, November 28 about how the Eglinton Crosstown could transform our city.

Antoine Grumbach, a Paris architect whose work also includes a hotel for Euro Disney, will give a free public lecture at the North Toronto Collegiate Institute.

"The expected value of this talk is to hear about Mr. Grumbach's work in other cities such as Paris and Moscow, and to learn how similar transit investments have had a positive impact on the city at every scale, both city wide and local," says Lorna Day, the city's project manager for the Eglinton Crosstown Planning Study. "We hope to gain specific direction about public realm elements and built form."

Antoine Grumbach and Associates have been hired by the city as consultants on what's known as the Crosstown Collaborative, along with Brook McIlroy and Planning Alliance.

This event is a continuation of a long-term public education and consultation process that began last spring with a series of public open houses.

Doors open at 6:30pm. The talk begins at 7:30pm.
