About the Project

The City is commencing a review of built form, height and density along the Lakeshore Road East Corridor in the Lakeview area. The goal of the study is to refine the policy framework that will guide future growth and a compatible form of new development in the area.

The study covers the frontage properties along Lakeshore Road East between Seneca Avenue and the Etobicoke Creek (see map below). The Lakeview Village Master Plan and the surrounding properties are not included in the study area, as these lands were part of the Inspiration Lakeview project.


Join Us

Join local residents for a virtual community meeting and discussion to review preliminary recommendations for urban design and policy directions to manage compatible growth along the Lakeshare East Corridor.

Register here to join the meeting on Thursday, June 10 from 6:30 PM – 8:15 PM.
