    Toronto Toronto | 10 Prince Arthur | 27.55m | 7s | North Drive | Richard Wengle

    We need more projects like this in Toronto. Especially in proximity to existing Subways (Line 2 especially).

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Why not just transfer from line 4 to line 1 north a stop? Single seat trips are not that important.

    Canadian Highway Fantasy Thread

    General question here, what is the future of Highway 26, adding lanes, speed limit increases (currently mostly 80km/h) to match the speed limit increases on 400 series highways we have seen?

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I think 2B is the ideal option.

    Planned Sprawl in the GTA

    Not a mirage. Downtown (?) Vaughan looking considerable from the 400SB today.

    Toronto Toronto | 72 Church Avenue | 16.58m | 4s | Yougan Wei | TAES

    The current built landscape.

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT: Eglinton Station | ?m | 1s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    I thought Labour Day weekend was a safe bet. although I also said that this time last year.

    Toronto Toronto | Centennial Branch Toronto Public Library Redevelopment | 6.85m | 1s | TPL | McCallum Sather Officially closed.

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    Really? I think if it were not for the buried sections of Line 5 it would be open in 2022 or sooner without the pandemic. Is the Hurontario LRT that far behind schedule if it is all surface-level?

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    This video does a great job of explaining what happened with regard to the opening date moving around the way it did. However, listening to all the ways that Mertolinx has communicated the revisions feels like a PR disaster and that there is something extremely messy they do not want the public...

    Toronto Toronto | Gallery Condos | 16.64m | 4s | Vermilion Developments | CMV

    New trailer at 242 Finch Avenue West, signs of life. Will take a picture next pass by.

    Toronto Toronto | Centennial Branch Toronto Public Library Redevelopment | 6.85m | 1s | TPL | McCallum Sather

    Passed by the library, and noticed they have put up "Closing soon" in their window using sticky notes (may have not been exact wording) but it was large and visible driving on the eastbound lanes of Finch Avenue West. So I assume some progress has been made because that is a new sign.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    I agree. I also wish that they would continue building the Line 6 originally imagined and extend the Finch West LRT to Finch station. Connecting both sides of Line 1 north of Bloor (eventually north of Eglinton, whenever the Crosstown may open) would be a game changer as east west rapid transit...

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

    Hold on $400-$450 million dollars for 1 station at Cummer? No interchage, just a regular subway stop? York University station cost $150 million dollars in 2017. Something's not adding up.

    Toronto Toronto | 4926 Bathurst Street | 96.55m | 29s | Portal | Arcadis

    Looks like this project is getting bumped from a height of 74m, 24 storeys to 91m 29 storeys.

    Toronto Toronto | 461 Sheppard Avenue East | 144m | 44s | 461 Sheppard Ave E Properties | Graziani + Corazza

    So how many developments are now planned on gas stations in North York? Bathurst and Finch, Bathurst and Wilson, Yonge and Chatsworth. Currently 2/3 are sitting dormant and Bathurst and Finch is still operating. I wonder how long the remediation time is for these gas stations?
