    Toronto | 2376 Dundas West | 87.5m | 27s | Lormel Homes | Richmond Architects

    I guess I was hoping for an east-west pedestrian tunnel under Dundas West Street, connecting the subway station to these apartment buildings, at least something similar to what's at Dufferin, if only to discourage the jay walking that happens there regularly. I believe there have been traffic...

    Toronto | 2376 Dundas West | 87.5m | 27s | Lormel Homes | Richmond Architects

    Designs are supposedly to be finalized by the end of this year and construction to begin sometime next year. But we've heard it all before.. Ideally, there should be a direct underground pedestrian tunnel connection between the GO-UPX station mezzanine and the mezzanine level in Dundas West...

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Looking closely, it seems they are using the pre-formed dimples all around the completed sections of the concrete pillars to fasten the platform supports. They are likely not drilling new holes into the concrete for them, but cannot confirm that.

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

    I believe this possibly was meant to draw attention to the re-opening of "Jurassic Park" in adjacent Maple Leaf Square for Toronto Raptors fans to gather during the playoffs which were starting.

    Toronto | Ontario Line: Corktown Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    Growing up in Scarborough I learned about the city based on the major arterials and intersections, and then later same with the subway stations when I began using them. So the station names based on the major streets they were nearest to was logical and that stuck with me. I know not all...

    Toronto | Ontario Line: Corktown Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    Never knew of any Toronto neighbourhood called Corktown until this station. All I ever knew is that this area was the Pan Am athletes village few years back, I don't ever remember reading or hearing of "Corktown". No disrespect intended to the early settlers that called this home way back in...

    Toronto | 2376 Dundas West | 87.5m | 27s | Lormel Homes | Richmond Architects

    The pink faux brick panels are chipped and cracked, especially on the corners, and the white concrete panels also look scuffed and dirty in several places. On the south east side those gray faux brick panels do not seem to have the same finish, (matte/gloss?) they just look mismatched. It all...

    Bathurst Quay Revitalization: Canada Malting Silos, Ireland Pk, Waterfront Promenade (was Metronome)

    My heart jumped a little once I understood what I was looking at, this is the coolest image effect I've ever seen here on UT thanks for posting, makes me greatly appreciate the science and nature of light... oh and UT for bringing it to my eyes as well. pesto

    Dundas West/ Bloor Mobility Hub +interconnected hub network (Metrolinx)

    It would be really nice to see a new streetcar loop built underneath the crossways parallel with the subway platforms, similar to what is at Spadina Line 2 station. That might also place it somewhere underneath Bloor, not sure how big a loop is needed and how deep it would have to be in that...
