    Love? It's better than the old version, but come on! Colour is good, but is that really enough to win people over?

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

    Thank you for your thorough and informative reply. I agree that we should have seating that allows people to face any direction. For that, I would suggest using the West 8 bench that doesn't have back support (as seen in my first image). I respect your vision, but I just think that the West 8 +...

    Toronto | 1910 Eglinton Avenue East | 115.35m | 34s | Yorkreal Holdings | Turner Fleischer

    Meh... much better than the previous one, but still nothing special. Tower isn't terrible, but the podium just doesn't create an urban environment.

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

    Just some feedback... I really like this project and am so inspired by how well it's moving along. My concern is that the seating along the water's edge is just blocks of concrete. Isn't it better to have a consistent identity along the waterfront? My idea is to replace the concrete seats with...

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

    I understand what you mean about being disappointed because developers don't give us what they promised. My question is what does the city have to do with this? Is it insufficient planning policy, or a laissez-faire approach during the approvals process? What exactly are you talking about?

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

    How is the city setting up roadblocks? I'm not very satisfied with the East Harbour vision, but is it the city's fault? Does it have anything to do with planning policy, or is this Cadillac Fairview's fault?

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    At this point, why not prioritize high-speed elevators instead of escalators? It would save time and make transfer less annoying.

    Toronto | Block 8 West Don Lands | 89.61m | 26s | Dream | COBE Architects

    It's shaping up really nice... really makes me happy. I love how, at ground level, you can see that it'll act as a continuation of the Distillery District.

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    Which is why we should use Silva Cells!

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    The Viva Blue bus has shown that there are a lot of riders on this stretch. Of course, COVID could change all of that. But in general, Yonge acts as one of the main arteries for transit users that live in York Region. We can already see that there are many developments popping up on Yonge St...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    You're right about that, and the fare structure is incredibly unfair to Toronto's taxpayers. But you could think about development potential, which is pretty good along Yonge. A lot of planning work has gone into what development and the streetscape would look like post-subway, but feel free to...

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    True, there's room for improvement. What really makes me happy is that they're gonna plant catnip! The guardian statues flanking the entrances are pretty cool, too.

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    Not sure if this was posted before, but Claude Cormier + Associés has released renderings for the new "Wellington Cat Promenade"! They were commissioned by Diamond Corp, RioCan REIT, and Allied Properties REIT. The cat theme was inspired by and in memory of Dizzy, a beloved local cat. Also, they...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    To be fair, they're protesting the fact that the Yonge North Subway Extension to Richmond Hill was supposed to run under Yonge St, but will now run under their neighbourhoods. What I'm worried about is that there were supposed to be way more stations along the extension. Langstaff station was...

    Street Lighting

    I'm pretty cynical, too. I got in touch with her office's planning advisor, so yeah I'll make sure to complain if nothing happens!

    Toronto | Concord Sky | 298.99m | 84s | Concord Adex | a—A

    I've said it before, but planning policy is the most straightforward solution.

    Street Lighting

    I hope so. It's really disappointing how many requests by Council are delayed or even completely forgotten about. I guess that's why they occasionally use "direct" instead of "request" in more important matters.

    Street Lighting

    Here's the latest update we have... On July 5, 2021, the Infrastructure and Environment Committee passed a motion by Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam to review street lighting standards and the agreement with Toronto Hydro... who has been a very bad actor in terms of the quality, maintenance, and...

    Rail Deck Park (?, ?, ?)

    It's not that Toronto isn't doing something... it's that we're not doing enough. Imo, not enough in quantity, quality, or speed.
