    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    I know the stretch you are talking about very well, there has been some kind of construction along that stretch of Kipling essentially every year for the part ~8 years. It's the epitome of mismanagement and bad coordination. I wonder what the city is going to come up with next year for that...

    Richmond Hill Toronto | Yonge Line 1 North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Dont you worry, the Ontario Line issues will crop up once Acciona starts building their section of the line. We'll see how that affects the Yonge subway extension timeline.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Steve Munro has published an article outlining the pretty appalling state of the TTC's subway maintenance fleet and its availability. The long and short of it is that a significant chunk of the TTC's maintenance fleet has been out of service for significant chunks of time either due to...

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

    Most definitely this is true, there would be people who would shift their mode of transit but to a certain extent. The reality is, if the Gardiner was torn down surrounding routes would have to take on the overflow, and this city simply isnt in a position today where it could absorb that. But...

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

    I took some screenshots of Toronto traffic during the complete shutdown of the Gardiner following that major accident at York on June 12. Remember the accident happened around 2pm (before rush hour). It was literally impossible to navigate almost anywhere in a 5km radius of the Gardiner or the...

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

    Great thing we know where Toronto Transportation Services priorities are these days.

    Toronto Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 345.5m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Wow now this somewhat surprising (although not completely shocking) Pinnacle wants to go this route. The occupancy rate here is....well not good and considering that there are more modern builds in and around in the area, it's probably a bit of a money pit for Pinnacle as it currently stands...

    Mississauga Dixie Rd/QEW New Interchange (MTO, 1s, AECOM)

    Another idiot truck driver decided to have his bin up to hit a brand new bridge, and the provincial government continues to show no interest in putting any kind of firm legislation in place to prevent/punish this stupidity...

    Toronto Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure ON

    Of course they are everyone has their biases, judges are no exception. It's common to hear of "left-leaning" judges and "right-leaning" judges even when they are supposed to have impartiality when making judgements.

    Toronto Toronto | Concord Canada House | 231.97m | 74s | Concord Adex | Arcadis

    Either way whether this was/was not supposed to be considered Concord's signature project, this build is a functional waste of prime real estate. When you're next to a tourist magnet in the CN Tower and a massive entertainment venue which draws thousands at any given point in time, but deliver...

    Toronto Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure ON

    Not a surprise to me at all, there was virtually no chance of it being subjected to an EA. Things are even more fun when Ford directly controls and hand picked the individuals who appoint judges in the province.

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    The definition of putting lipstick on a decaying pig, but hey let's let them enjoy the ride. Perhaps they can even hold them together with duct tape just like we did here in Toronto.

    St. Anne's Anglican Church (St. Annes, ?s, ?)

    This is just so incredibly sad and a tremendous loss. The provincial and federal governments really need to step up here an contribute to a full rebuild of this historical gem that we unfortunately lost.

    Pics of the renovation work going on at TMC. Tough to get a good shot while on the move: Jun 5, 2024

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Oh FFS, the ATU is being moronic about making the TTC unable to allow MiWay buses serving riders in Toronto (i'm purposeful omitting YRT from the discussion as their service is abysmal trash anyways). This part of the deal really pisses me off. No one would lose their jobs if other agencies...

    Toronto Toronto | Yorkdale Shopping Centre | ?m | ?s | Oxford Properties | MMC Architecture

    ^Yup, Burlington or Oakville have a much higher likelihood at ever seeing a Simons post compared to Hamilton.

    Toronto Toronto | 1025 The Queensway | 149.6m | 46s | Talisker | WZMH

    Yeah....this "plan" is an ill-conceived mess. The internal road network looks to be designed to squeeze out maximum amount of density without even giving thought to how pedestrians or cars will interact with the space. And on that note, the road connection to Islington would be car accident...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Ahh yes the crown jewel in the eyes of Metrolinx that is Bloomington GO. Why spend money on making stations like East Harbour look any good, when they can spend on palatial parking garages like this and win awards for it right?

    Toronto Toronto | Eaton Centre (Ongoing Renewal) | ?m | ?s | Cadillac Fairview | Zeidler

    Hmm I guess it depends how they're going to split the restaurant space and grocery space. The restaurant space that was previously here (Habitant at Nordstrom) did not do well at all. Of course it's no Eataly, but the numbers there were abysmal. Interestingly enough, the Nordstrom E-bar was very...
