    Rogers Centre Renovations

    I actually do remember that! It was Premier Fitness though. The entire company went under.

    Eglinton West LRT | Metrolinx

    How is this so far along that I missed all the steps leading to a TBM being assembled in an already dug trench!?

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

    That’s exactly how it happens - especially right now with long lead times for steel.

    Toronto | 401 Bay Street (formerly Simpson Tower) | 143.86m | 33s | Cadillac Fairview | WZMH

    ^ That's the first picture I've seen where this looks decent. Now we just need enough shadowing over NPS to make it permanently night, and we're good.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Weird. They just re-sealed and repainted the parking lot a month or two ago. Surely they knew they would be moving. Why bother?

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    A former coworker of mine just shared this pic on Facebook, taken from inside the Sportsnet Cafe:

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    It’s going to open Jan 1, 2023. Free rides for everyone to ring in the new year and a firework show to celebrate the opening of the line and the end of the pandemic.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes headed downtown)

    Even recently? I live at King and River and the Queen streetcar has been a mess out in this end for months now with construction at each end of the line. Just last week - I walked from the Eaton Centre to Sackville before a bus or streetcar came by. I find myself driving a lot more with the mess...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes headed downtown)

    I don’t agree with anything in that video. I relied on car sharing for a year during the pandemic while my dad used my car and it was useless most of the time. Cars were unavailable whenever I needed them, the parking restrictions meant having to take transit to get to a car, or to get home...

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway catch-all, incl. Hybrid Design (2015-onwards)

    What time did you take this pic? I’m pretty sure that’s me driving by on the left!

    Toronto | 1071 King West | 53m | 14s | Hullmark | BDP Quadrangle

    Sales centre is currently being demolished!

    Toronto | 401 Bay Street (formerly Simpson Tower) | 143.86m | 33s | Cadillac Fairview | WZMH

    Can we get the scaffolding put back up and declared heritage to at least cover up the podium permanently? I can’t believe that’s the final product for a tower smack in the middle of Canada’s largest city.

    Distillery District

    There's only 4 condos, with only 2 of them being built in the last 10 years. The condos have brought some year round 24/7 activity to the site, so I wouldn't say they are the issue with the distillery district. I think it's just become too popular as an attraction, and is changing to cater to...

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

    Im going to guess it's at CIBC Square. ;)

    Toronto | Canary Commons | 42.06m | 12s | DundeeKilmer | a—A

    I wasn't expecting that little pop of colour, despite it being on all the renderings. Didn't notice it. Nice!

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

    We're all working from home with no return date set. The future is hybrid for us, but there will be no mandated number of days to be in the office, and some have already said they wont ever return. I love how we went from being a dinosaur of a company, to complete flexibility overnight. And all...

    Innovation/Automation in Retail

    Good point! Ikea is always slammed no matter what! 🤣

    Innovation/Automation in Retail

    I don't think I have ever had to wait for a self checkout, anywhere. There's always more open ones than people waiting for them.

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

    My coworkers and I have been maintaining after work beers and socials throughout the pandemic. We started off with zoom meetings, but as things opened up we started shifting to in person. No need for a return to the office to make this happen. I don't miss people coming to my desk and...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Whoa... I haven't been through Maple GO in ages. I thought those were renderings. Didn't realize it's grown up so much!
