    Toronto Toronto | Waterfront Innovation Centre | 53.03m | 11s | Waterfront Toronto | Sweeny &Co

    Has Christopher Hume commented on it? Isn’t he our local and most well know critic of archecture and all things urban design related?

    Another oversight or design flaw with benches is that they didn't put anti-skateboarding bumbs every 1/2 meter or so.

    Toronto Toronto | CHAZ | 150.87m | 47s | 45 Charles Ltd | P + S / IBI

    I like the bench and wall, but couldn't they've have built the wall infront of the metered utilities mess hiding it from street view?

    Toronto Toronto | Pan Am Village in the West Don Lands | ?m | ?s | DundeeKilmer | KPMB

    I still think it looks dull and sterile inspite of all the greenery.

    Who's buying? Proposal says rental.

    Toronto Toronto | Picasso Condos | 128.62m | 39s | Mattamy Homes | Teeple Architects

    I think this building looks rather "nimbytechish" I suppose that could be considered clownish.

    Public Square and New Park Design in Toronto

    I tried searching for Market Lane redo renderings, does anyone know if they've been released? I do recall hearing that it will be done with St. Lawrence Market North rebuild.

    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    + 1 Tewder. You''ve nailed it, without even simply flipping skeezix argument around. Skeezix, I could say your stance that dogs should be allowed effectively bans people who: either don't like being around dogs, can't tolerate the noise they make, don't like the fact that their waste products...

    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    ^ wow. You really don't get it do you? The only people you are fine excluding from this park are people who don't like dogs, are allergic to dogs, don't like the smell of dog's urine and feces, etc. Can these people have just one park in the entire city where dogs would not be allowed or should...

    ^ Agreed, so far a complete waste of millions of dollars. Who makes these choices about things like the planters and trash bins? Should it not have been decided by the winning team's designers?

    I've seen fences go up at this site a few times already, only to come down a few days to a few weeks later. I'll belive they are starting once the digging actually begins.

    University Avenue - Toronto's Grand Avenue?

    I've been in Toronto for 7 years and belive it's been broken since I've arrived.

    University Avenue - Toronto's Grand Avenue?

    But that's not why I posted. Since you were mentioning train stations we should compares apples with apples. I thought it would be fair to bring up Toronto's main train station - Union Station. There is a lot of money being invested inside and outside the station. The covering outside the...

    Toronto Toronto | Corktown Common | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto | Maryann Thompson

    So when the contract with Solid Waste Management is up, refuse to give them a new contract unless they are willing to pick up from the trash bins we want. What choice would they have if they wanted the contract. Play hardball. I'm not sure why this wasn't in the initial contract.

    Toronto Toronto | Ontario Square and Canada Square | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I also walked by the square yesterday around 6pm, showing a friend from Miami our waterfront. I pointed out to him that this was Canada Square, just completed last year, and at that very moment he yawned. Coincidence....? I think not.

    So has Mr. Lamb remedied the green hat yet....... nope. Can I say I told you so yet?

    There is no accounting for taste I suppose, or lack there of.
