What makes LDI different?
What does development do for London’s economy?
By developing residential, commercial or industrial properties our industry is providing opportunities for people and businesses to live, grow and thrive in London for years to come. Development allows for a vibrant quality of life to allow all Londoners to achieve their personal and professional goals. Our industry is not only one of the largest direct employers in our City, it also creates 1000’s of indirect jobs in London’s economy. Development allows families to stay and grow in London. Development allows for business to start and thrive in our community. Our industry is the gateway to opportunity.
How do developers decide where to build?
Developers then work with the City of London for project approval to ensure it’s the best fit for the people of London. The development plan will meet guidelines of the Official Plan and municipal and provincial regulations.
How do developers protect the environment?
Some examples of our industry’s commitment to the environment includes the provision of new park space, additional tree canopy and protection of environmentally sensitive areas during construction. All with the goal to sustain and enhance the natural environment of London.
Why does growth matter?
How can development revitalize different parts of the city?
The London Plan, the City’s Official Plan, encourages redevelopment and intensification in a number of parts of the City, including downtown and along the rapid transit routes. The Plan also encourages redevelopment within the current built area of the City. Our industry works with the City to realize this vision of revitalization with a focus on bringing residential and commercial development to the downtown core. We are also working on the redevelopment opportunities along the rapid transit routes that will provide individuals and families an opportunity to live near our modern City conveniences.
