    Toronto Toronto | Six Points Plaza Redevelopment | 144.6m | 45s | Liberty Development | Arcadis

    The Shoppers here isn't really a "standard Shoppers". It has a fresh fruit/veggies area, and fresh bread/pastries/meats as well. For a long time this area had no grocery nearby, and it acted as the local grocery option for many people living in the area (Farm Boy across the street has changed...

    Toronto Toronto | Etobicoke Civic Centre | 75.82m | 16s | CreateTO | Henning Larsen

    Are the current employees at the Etobicoke Civic Centre at the West Mall going to moved here? Will this house the council for the Etobicoke-York Community Council? I get that it's more central, does the old ECC close? Never really understood what happens over there.

    Toronto 4875 Dundas Street West | 150.09m | 45s | Forest Gate | Graziani + Corazza

    I like it. This area needs this kind of intensification, it's such a nicely kept area, walkable, nice streetscape with art and nice lights in the winter. Hope the retail is a restaurant. People living here would likely walk west to Cordova and down the steps by the Tridel buildings to...

    Mississauga Toronto | M3 at M City | 260.29m | 77s | Rogers Real Estate | Arcadis

    What's also interesting about Mississauga is that the most eastern parts of the city (ie., closest geographically to Toronto - and to Pearson) are the least desirable parts of the City. Malton, and to a lesser extent, Applewood/Dixie/Rockwood and the entire Burnhamthorpe area are where the...

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    Yep, I don't get it. Played sports as a kid and into my 20s. Never understood these overweight adults thinking they have anything to do with a 20 year old kid winning or losing. But I guess it's the feeling like you're part of something bigger. For a lot of people, this is their life. I guess we...

    Vaughan Toronto | York University School of Medicine | ?m | ?s | York University

    You don't need a proper/standalone university for a medical school, see NOSM. In fact, a Barrie/Simcoe campus of NOSM could probably work. Yes I know Barrie is not in "Northern Ontario", but somehow being connected (maybe with a different campus name / criteria for entrance), it could work...

    2483-2485 Bloor Street West (?, ?s, ?)

    I don't see how land this expensive could be viable unless it were to have 30-40 stories. Condo sales are unstable right now.

    Thought the closure of Lynx would have helped Flair.

    Mayor Olivia Chow's Toronto

    It's interesting. Most people who are in rent-controlled units pay significantly below market rate (as they should), and might be the ones who could afford a little more. There's nothing that protects those in the post-2018 built units, who, logically, would be the ones already paying the most...

    Mayor Olivia Chow's Toronto

    I don't think they will pony up. There is anti-Toronto sentiment out there. There are people in Ontario/Canada who have modest 200k houses who pay more in taxes than people in Toronto with 2 million dollar homes, but Chow wants them (outside of Toronto) to pay even more so she can rename Dundas...

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    The comments I read "People will rise up! Rexdale will burn! The streets will run red with blood because the average speed of the LRT is x kph instead of y kph!" felt to me like a tongue-in-cheek mocking of someone who is advocating that Rexdale deserves faster transit that is on par with the...

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    This post really doesn't sit well with me. This "this is good enough for the people of Rexdale" has a hint of something... to it. We aren't making the downtown crowd along the Yonge corridor, or along Boor, wait these kind of times/spdees, but for the people of Rexdale, "yeah, let em wait."...

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    If it does have an average speed of around 16km/h, it is very similar to the other streetcar speed in Etobicoke, the 501 Queen average speed along the whole line is said to be around 18km/h, surely faster in the section along the Queensway that is grade-separated. This fits much more in the...

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    36 mins to go 10km? lol. This isn't going to be convincing anybody to get out of their car. Happy with how quickly they finished this, but we need to do better. I don't even want this line on our Rapid Transit/Subway map, certainly not the "stops" that are not stations, this should appear on...

    Toronto Toronto | Eglinton Line 5: Jane-Eglinton Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    I thought they were trying to avoid confusing people with using Eglinton in station names along a line named Eglinton. Scarlett Woods would make sense, but would likely be confusing with a Scarlett station just west of here. Maybe "York", "Roseland", "Topham Pond", or "Nunziata" or "Frances...

    Vaughan Toronto | 255 Bass Pro Mills Drive | 131.9m | 39s | BentallGreenOak | Hariri Pontarini

    We - who live in Toronto, don't want our transit dollars spent in York region. Enough. We have enough high density areas in our own city that need rapid transit that have way higher density than anything in York region (think Humber Bay shores). We don't want to be connected to you with our...

    Toronto Toronto | 4174 Dundas West | 50.8m | 14s | Dunpar Homes | Turner Fleischer

    Still unsure why the city is so against height here. Kingsway by the River (just west of this site) is almost 80m tall, and looks to be even taller given that it's at the top of a hill. Again, can't stand Dunpar, but that aside, this location is perfect for 80m-100m buildings, the "amenities"...

    Toronto Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    Yeah, that video is ridiculous. He keeps referring to the idea of an outdoor mall in "Canada" as a bad idea, yet Toronto is further south than I think it's 27 of the 50 states? Because Toronto happens to be in a country with Nunavut or Edmonton, lumps the city in to make the idea of an...

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    Are only the two termini of this line's stops referred to as stations? The rest are "Stops"? I'm a little confused as to why "stops" are going to appear on the TTC Rapid Transit maps as the map otherwise only has transit "stations" on it - with the exception of the Pearson Airport "Stop"...

    Oakville Toronto | North Oakville Elementary #3 | 14.09m | 3s | HDSB | Hossack & Associates Architect

    Are three storey elementary schools very common in Ontario in the last 40-50 years? I can't recall many of them in the GTA suburbs (other than very old schools that were built pre 1970s)
