The Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit Line is coming soon and Leaside has two stations - the Leaside (Bayview) and Laird stations.
How has the higher order transit development been matched by changes in land use, residential and commercial development, streetscape, and community services - both happening now and expected in the future?
