George Baird – City Builder and Good Neighbour

George Baird made a significant contribution to Canadian architecture and during that impressive career also found time to be a good neighbour. 

In the early 2000s when the City removed the Yorkville North Midtown Secondary Plan from the new Official Plan, George offered to assist the ABC Resident’s Association with the development of Site and Area Specific Policy 211. This policy, later adopted by City Council, has been the key policy to help us improve the quality of development in the neighbourhood.  

We are grateful for his expertise and the generous support of his community.
