    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    The "streetcar mall on King" is one of the best things about the city. Before the "streetcar mall", nobody could get across King in anything close to a timely fashion. Now almost 100,000 people a day (pre-pandemic) can get across the city quickly. At essentially no cost to anyone else.

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    I copied and pasted the photos from my google photos window, and they appeared when I was posting, but I don't see them now either. I can try to repost.

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    I didn't post here at the time because there was no construction, but here's what it looked like when we moved in...

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    The noise is worse than the view! When we bought our apartment there was nothing there, but I did do my research, so I knew it would be disappearing. I don't mind looking across to other apartments, which was what we had in our last place. I'm happy I have/had a few years of good views, and had...

    Toronto | East Harbour | 214.2m | 65s | Cadillac Fairview | Adamson

    It is probably high. But we're talking about a project that will cost billions of dollars to build. This is the one unique thing about the area where the project will be built.

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

    Yonge and Bloor is a busy intersection for pedestrians, but not that many cars go through it daily. This article from 2015 says that if you combine pedestrians and vehicles, it is the 48th busiest intersection in Toronto, never mind Canada...

    Toronto | East Harbour | 214.2m | 65s | Cadillac Fairview | Adamson

    I like the quote from the CF VP. "It just doesn’t work in terms of our current plans.” Ummmm... you could change your plans? To me, the soap factory building is the one thing about this site that is totally unique. Why would you not want to make something of that? Otherwise, just build this...

    I think most people going from Etobicoke to Queen station are taking the subway, which won't be affected. The Queen streetcar absolutely will be, which is all the more reason to get the smallish number of cars that use Queen street off of it, so that the streetcar can carry the many people who...

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    Starting to rise above its immediate neighbours.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Depends how many cars have to make a left turn in front of your streetcar.

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    I didn't want to go outside because it's cold and there's snow out there. But it looks like they've started building apartments on the north side of the ig podium, so I guess the giant parking garage is finished. Hopefully the snow slows down progress significantly :)

    Zoning Reform Ideas

    No one actually cares about neighbourhood "look and feel", or they wouldn't let those monster mansions be built among small post-war bungalows in East York (to give one example).

    Toronto | First Parliament Site | ?m | ?s

    I walked by today, and didn't take a picture because a dump truck was mostly blocking my view, but there's a pretty large tent covering the south end of the site now.

    Toronto | Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85.04m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    I say this a lot, but I love this one. I registered for info about potential rental, but they aren't communicating anything yet.

    Working from home vs. commuting to work during and after the pandemic

    I just walk to the office, so there are no time or money issues for me, though I recognize that those can be significant for people. I just like being able to get together and talk through problems with my colleagues without having to set up a call. But we are going to have a lot of flexibility...

    Working from home vs. commuting to work during and after the pandemic

    So much easier to just go to their desk.

    LOL. I commented on one of these facebook posts and was told that "almost every tree that surrounds the park will taken down so no the park wont be fine " Do people actually believe this garbage?

    Roads: Bayview Extension/River Street

    The last thing we need in Toronto is more cars in the street. Drivers already whine constantly about how much traffic there is.
