    Moss Park / Queen & Sherbourne

    Creamery X ice cream has moved to the corner of Queen and Jarvis. It's a much larger space and has some seating. And Ben McNally Books has opened a few doors west at 108 Queen East. The space is still being renovated, but they're open for business.

    Toronto | Therme Spa at Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Therme Group | Diamond Schmitt

    Oh my goodness, yes! Get kids out of the house and off their screens so they can run through a punching bag forest, throw themselves between sheets of rubber, and jump and flip on a bouncy mattress the size of a football field (or so it felt).

    Toronto | Hyatt Place / The 203 Residences on Jarvis | 108.2m | 32s | Manga | IBI Group

    Hotels in the area are nothing new though: The Grand, next door, was recently torn down and another hotel/condo is being built, and the Hilton Garden Inn was replaced by Dundas Square Gardens.

    Jarvis and Dundas

    POP Coffee is now home to The Anarchist. In addition to serving and selling POP coffee (and some others), there is also a selection of anti-capitalist books, art etc. And there's a very nice patio! It also looks like J-San finally has a competitor in takeaway Japanese: Tenda Sushi is opening up...

    Moss Park / Queen & Sherbourne

    This is fantastic news! They've moved around a few times since the Bay St. location closed, but are clearly keen on staying in the East end.

    Problematic Park Design - Why Some Parks Don't Work

    Wow. I ride up Church St. all the time and actually had no idea there was an entire park behind the 519. I'm also realizing that I've somehow combined the north and south sections into one, single space. The entire area has always felt generally 'unsafe' to me, and apparently my brain just...

    St Lawrence Market

    The Butter Chicken Roti at King and Sherbourne had their door smashed-in too. From my experience over the last while in a nearby neighbourhood people seem to be smashing things just for the hell of it. I assume mental health or drug issues etc. and I'm not sure what can be done about it. If...

    Goodbye mural, from the looks of it. How unfortunate, it's currently the best thing in the neighbourhood.

    Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    The city reps described the catenary lighting as being thin, unobtrusive and 'star-like', but there was some hesitancy from at least one of the workshop participants, especially about what they'd look like during the daylight hours. I believe someone may have compared them to a tangle of...

    Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    No, as per one of the city reps who spoke at the most recent community workshop, the tables shown behind Biagio in the plan reflect the restaurant's private patio and are not part of the park redesign - the image is misleading. They were also very clear that the decision not to include...

    So those windows on the south side: at the moment they're a wall of grey and remind me of something you'd find in a suburban office park. They'll look ... better once the building is complete, right?

    That glazing is a trypophobic's nightmare.

    Jarvis and Dundas

    Looks like the neighbourhood will be getting a third dental office, this time in one of the retail spaces in Max condos at 81 Mutual. There's already one around the corner in Pace and another in the Merchandise building on Mutual. Chef Kareema's Caribbean at Dundas and George St closed at the...

    Pickering Town Centre Redevelopment

    Anyone else remember when this used to be the Sheridan Mall?

    Toronto | TMU: Science Building | 81.7m | 14s | Ryerson University | Henning Larsen

    Looks like they’re drilling for soil samples in the parking lot today. At least I assume that’s what they’re doing with a drill and barrels.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    That does seem really inconvenient; I assume most cyclists will continue along Commissioners regardless. Does this mean they're finally doing something about that awful four-stage crossing over Lakeshore E and Cherry?

    Giant curtain tracks? (I've been wondering about those too)

    St. James Park Revitalization (PMA Landscape Architects)

    They tagged the playground equipment too. Unfortunately it was only a matter of time 🙁
