    General railway discussions

    Fair enough, but the point would stand, that in comparing, we're talking about density within reach of current/potential passenger rail.

    General railway discussions

    The GGH comes from one of the Ministry of Finance commissioned numbers, usually done by Hemson, but I can't find the right one at the moment. The 2024 provincial budget said 'over 10M' The last projection I saved for some reason I didn't screenshot 'current': The other numbers I got...

    As stated, you agree with regulating STRs in urban areas; I argue simply that the policy should apply uniformly which I think should be the default for all legislation except where evidence is provided that this would be demonstrably unfair. By default, Canadian Law (national) applies to...

    Thank you to you both; much appreciated!

    Since we have the preliminary information, obviously subject to change, I will add the height to the title @Paclo @HeartoftheTempest did you happen to make note of the architect?

    Agreed. To be fair, I think when considering Toronto and Montreal what we really ought to compare is Greater Golden Horseshoe (The Toronto commuter-shed), the same for Montreal and Ottawa and the corridor in between. Based on the above, you would get a population of ~18,000,000 over an area...

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    Pejorative and personal and unnecessary and inaccurate. Stop! I have not cited your income in discussing Old Age Security. Why? Because its anecdotal, and because 'perspective' is by definition subjective, you're ok to make a subjective observation as am I; they just shouldn't be...

    Toronto Toronto | 1071 King West | 62.2m | 17s | Hullmark | BDP Quadrangle

    This one has a minor technical amendment before Council today in the form of a member motion concerning accepting the parkland dedication. Its not of any real significance, but I offer it here, because an absence of proper proof reading made me laugh. Summary On July 28 and 29...

    Toronto Toronto | 793 Don Mills | 202m | 60s | Menkes | Sweeny &Co

    Reading back in the files; this is a case where the applicant filed over the heritage designation; its clear there have been/were active settlement discussions with some hope this might have been resolved by the March '24 CMC date. That date was adjourned to May suggesting a settlement was...

    78-84 Vaughan Rd (n of St. Clair W, future redevelopment)

    I'm aware, I've been, more than once. I quite like that architecture though; and it is what I associate w/Amsterdam along w/the canals. While I like the trees and the scale in the above, I find the architecture rather sad, very dull colour palate and just mediocre quality, along with...

    78-84 Vaughan Rd (n of St. Clair W, future redevelopment)

    I think hotel is unattractive and too busy. Doubtless the skill to involved in utilizing that particular set of detail/cladding exceeds the design skill of KirKor, but that doesn't make it any less unappealing. Its a jumble.

    Amsterdam meet KirKor, KirKor meet Amsterdam. LOL. Way too busy/ridiculous looking. This is Amsterdam:

    Restaurant Comings & Goings

    In a word "No" The pricing of the cocktails strikes me as egregiously high, the rest only strikes me as excessive, LOL.

    Toronto Toronto | 824 Sheppard Avenue West | 45.24m | 12s | Almega | Chamberlain

    Resubmission/complete submission for this one in March '24. Application was previously deemed in complete in 2023. Of note.......and very strangely to me, this application has shifted from purpose-built rental to condo with the applicant indicating conditions have become less favourable to...

    Toronto Toronto | 171-175 Lowther Avenue | 44.85m | 11s | Raleigh Residences | Gabriel Fain Architects

    In fairness to Ms.Jacobs who was a champion of cities when they were on the decline, particularly in the United States, her actions occurred at a time when urban populations were largely stagnant or declining and homelessness was much less acute than today. I've never really gone for the...

    Toronto Toronto | Bridgepoint Long Term Care | 102.23m | 20s | Sinai Health | Diamond Schmitt

    On the substance of the above. I very much support more Long Term Care and, in fact, personally spoke to some people high up in the provincial government pre-budget about this very project and why it was languishing. Glad to see it moving forward. I take no issue w/the height, the beds...

    Your making me all nostalgic and teary over my coffee. Bringing me back to the days when I had to pay attention to post an AIC link first. LOL I actually opened the above files in the middle of the night.........but since you've taken the last couple of years off, I figured I had to til...

    Parking - Catch All

    I agree. Enforcement is too light and too unpredictable. Here's my problem w/current pricing. The entry level permit (you have no place to park a car on your property, and first permit) is $21.34 per month this year or 71 cents per day. Meanwhile, tenants in my apartment building...

    'We' know no such thing. Why can't you debate without personalizing? You notice I neither advocate for nor against a policy based on your existence? I never mention your parents or family. Proper debate is evidence based, and dispassionate. It requires no character assassination...

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    You and I are only a couple of years apart in age, I'm under 50, born in the mid 70s. Once again, you have your facts wrong. You draw conclusions w/o evidence and spew them w/venom.
