Toronto's downtown and midtown neighbourhoods are seeing steady population growth, often without a corresponding increase in public space like parks. Laneways are ubiquitous in these neighbourhoods, and while they are normally utilitarian in nature they have the potential to be transformed into linear corridors of green space. 

The Laneway Project worked with the Harbord Village Residents' Association and the David Suzuki Foundation to green Croft Street, using hardy vegetation and space-efficient greening measures like vines and planters.
