Among the colorful placards waved on Yonge Eglinton square yesterday, local architect Andre Le Roux’s placard stood out. Instead of a simple slogan about saving the square, the architect’s placard showed a detailed drawing (below) of a better idea for the square that keeps most of the open space on the sunny south side along with access from Yonge St. AND the retail space RioCan wants. Click here for more on Andre’s better ideas for our city square.

And here is a thoughtful piece from online Toronto urban design magazine Spacing about why the square must be saved.
