    Wealthsimple Stadium (Ad Company Geniuses, 0s, Août Poisson Architects)

    Mods, please delete this if it isn't appropriate. BlogTO posted this on their Instagram. It's supposed to be a "stadium downtown", and looks like a new build and way too small to be the rumoured Rogers Centre renovation. An announcement is supposed to come later this week.

    CN Milton Logistics Hub

    Thought that this $250 million intermodal logistics hub being proposed by CN deserved a thread, as it is a huge development and could potentially have implications for future GO service, and underscores the need for the "Missing Link"/Freight Bypass. In short, the development will: develop 400...

    Today, the Canadian Premier League's first team was officially unveiled, the York 9 FC ("9" stands for the nine municipalities in York Region). For the first few years they will play at York U, then move to a 15,000 seat stadium in York Region (location TBD). From the team's website:

    Mississauga Soccer Stadium (Canadian Premier League, other events)

    While browsing for details about the upcoming Canadian Premier League, I found some really cool information pertaining to Mississauga. Evidently, a supporter's group dubbed the "Sauga City Collective" is pushing for a CPL team for the city, and their (very slick) website also included a...

    Oakville Former Hospital Site

    I thought I'd make a thread for the former hospital lands in Old Oakville. It is a large plot of land very close to downtown Oakville that will see significant redevelopment over the next few years. I've attached a few links with an overview of the site and what is proposed. Link to Town of...

    TransPod Hyperloop

    I totally understand that the concept of a functioning passenger Hyperloop is an idea that is still many years away from implementation, but due to the Toronto-based company TransPod getting more and more press, I figured that a thread here would be a good idea so people can throw around...

    Barrie Collingwood Railway (BCRY)

    As there has recently been some discussion in the VIA Rail thread about the viability of passenger service from Barrie to Collingwood, I thought I'd make a thread here as a more apt place to discuss it. Also, the Orangeville-Brampton Railway has a thread, so figured that this RR should have one...

    Orangeville-Brampton Railway (OBRY)

    I thought I would make a thread dedicated to the Orangeville-Brampton Railway and the Credit Valley Explorer train service. With a chunk of the line running through the GTA, the OBRY as a rail corridor could become more and more important in the future.
