    Bombardier Downsview Lands (Northcrest-Canada Lands, Henning Larsen)

    You do realize I actually said that in my post, right?

    Toronto | TeaHouse 501 Yonge Condominiums | 170.98m | 52s | Lanterra | a—A

    That's possible; there is no design for that streetscape yet, so we can't really be certain. I doubt that's the reason there are fewer trees than rendered though; I rather suspect the conflicts of being right over a subway tunnel, plus normal utility conflicts probably made it...

    Bombardier Downsview Lands (Northcrest-Canada Lands, Henning Larsen)

    Muddling through this, I think 2 key roads remain problematically aligned. Dufferin (extension) stands out, as they've drawn it to link with Chesswood............instead of Dufferin. Likewise, there is no plan to push Carl Hall Road all the way through the site (ideally as Sheppard Avenue; with...

    Ryerson: 136 Dundas St E (3s, ?)

    I wonder if separation distance rules play into the decision at all. With residential on the north side of the laneway, kicking in at about the 4th floor (lower levels are parking). The lots are only ~26M deep, so if they had to come in front that..... Just a thought.

    Road Safety & Vision Zero Plan

    Great proposal. I've long advocated for a sidewalk on the west side of the road, abutting High Park, but a multi-use trail is a fine alternative. I think the most uncomfortable spot, where a sidewalk exists is the underpasses Queensway/ the Railway Corridor/ and the Gardiner. Narrowing the...

    Toronto | TeaHouse 501 Yonge Condominiums | 170.98m | 52s | Lanterra | a—A

    Small solace perhaps, for a few years; but this section of Yonge will be rebuilt by the City and narrowed, with a completely new streetscape following the completion of the section south of College. The intention is to re-do (and narrow) at least as far Davenport. In terms of timing, late this...

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    In a word: No. Don't get me wrong, I hope so, I'd love to see it; It would be awesome if I'm wrong........ But let's remember, in the best case scenario, the height typically associated with Dawn Redwoods is from the west coast, where the growing season is considerably longer than it is here...

    11-15 Kodiak Crescent (?, ?s, ?)

    From the lobbyist registry, it would seem that the existing owners are looking to get an employment use conversion on this property. This site is on Allen Road, just north of Sheppard west, 2-3 blocks from Sheppard West Stn. Details for Subject Matter Registration: SM32420 Site size is...

    Eglinton West LRT | Metrolinx

    I found this blurb the more interesting: ***ECWE: Contract packaging options (including delivery models and timelines) continue to be explored, with a view to considering how a) Tunnels and/or Elevated Guideway and b) Stations, Rail and Systems might be optimally delivered.

    Toronto | home: Power and Adelaide | 78.33m | 22s | Great Gulf | Core Architects

    According to their leasing brochure (which can be notoriously out of date); they have yet to lease most of the retail spaces. They're marketing the 28,000ft2 on the 2nd floor as office space now; though they had wanted a supermarket.
