    Toronto | Crosstown LRT: Chaplin Station | ?m | 1s | Metrolinx | IBI Group

    The tower crane has been gone for a few months. They use a crane on wheels when they need something lifted. The main station building has glass. Chaplin south of Eglinton is closed off to road traffic because they have a trench dug in the road.

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Hope they have a better location than the last one - right across from the McDonalds that always smelled like Filet-O-Fish.

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    I think VIA Rail used one of them as a display case for their souvenir shop. If they can't be walked into, what about taking out the glass and putting in vending machines? Not like the ones you see here, but like they have in Japan where you can get almost anything out of one? Wouldn't be the...

    Miscellany Toronto Photographs: Then and Now

    Also 1425 Rene-Levesque Ouest in Montreal. It didn't last long, becoming CBC's Montreal studios till the 70s. It's offices now, with the openings between the wings glassed in.

    Jane and Lawrence

    So I work in Mississauga and am currently driving in from Cambridge - not a situation I hope will continue, especially once the snow falls. I found an ad for a building just south of Jane and Lawrence. The rent is about the most I can afford. Is this area still as bad as people say it is?

    Toronto | Massey Hall Revitalization at the Allied Music Centre | 48.46m | 7s | KPMB

    If I'm not mistaken the renovation will eliminate most, if not all, of the obstructed views.

    Sonja Bata plans to rebuild Batawa

    Of all the places to have surface parking. If you're going to pay that much for a condo you should at least get to avoid cleaning your car off in the winter.

    Waterloo Region Transit Developments (ION LRT, new terminal, GRT buses)

    I wonder if we should pull a Montreal and move turning lights to the end of a light cycle.

    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    I wonder what the odds are of ONR getting the tender for the SSM-Hearst service. If they're going to expand, it makes sense for that part to be added to the network too.

    Woodbine Centre

    If I'm not mistaken, the most recent version of this sign at the mall doesn't include the Fantasy Fair. I hope they reconsider if that's true; it's seen better days, no question, but it would be a shame to see it go.

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    I can only ever smell the Filet o' Fish sandwiches from McDonalds.

    Canadian Premier League T20 Cricket Stadium (?,?,?)

    You have a very narrow view of the game's audience. The big driver is immigrants from the Caribbean, India, and Pakistan. I was at CCTT a couple of years ago waiting for a GO Bus and someone fitting one of those categories (couldn't tell which) was taking practice swings with his bat. We've had...

    Toronto | Ryerson Student Learning Centre | 50.59m | 8s | Ryerson University | Zeidler

    Maybe they can time it for Nuit Blanche instead?

    Toronto Eaton Centre

    They're pulling out of the Canadian market; everything must go.

    Random Ontario retail nostalgia

    Does anyone remember a hobby shop closer to downtown? I have a lingering memory of a really dumpy one on Yonge somewhere near Eaton Centre, but I might be making that up out of nowhere.
