The Eglinton Crosstown LRT (CLRT) is Toronto’s most significant transit expansion in decades, spanning the entire city across 19.5 kilometres of above and below ground track with 15 stations and 10 stops, including three interchange stations as well as a Maintenance and Storage Facility (MSF).  When completed, the new line will connect five boroughs via multi-modal stations. The Leaside (formerly Bayview) Station will be an underground Station located at the intersection of Bayview Avenue and Eglinton Avenue East. There are two entrances for this station with the main entrance located on the southeast corner of the intersection and the secondary entrance located on the northwest corner. A glass-box design elevates the quality of the public transit experience by being transparent and bright, and the clarity and simplicity of architectural expression shows through integrated design of building systems and elements.
