Parks, Open Space and Streetscape Plan for the Yonge Eglinton Study Area
Midtown in Focus, the Parks, Open Space and Streetscape Plan for the Yonge-Eglinton area, creates a framework for coordinated public realm improvements in the middle of the city. The Plan, adopted by City Council in August 2014, identifies how the existing network of parks, open spaces, streets and public buildings can be improved over the next 5 to 10 years to create an attractive, safe and comfortable network of public spaces that supports City life in Midtown.
In 2015, the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) awarded Midtown in Focus its highest award, the National Honours Award, Planning and Analysis. This Award of Excellence recognizes the consultant team led by Public Work for outstanding achievement in the profession of Landscape Architecture for their work on the Midtown in Focus Study.
