It would not be improving the city beyond selling out the cleared land for more glass box condos. We'd essentially be removing transportation infrastructure to benefit condo developers.You've gotta be bloody joking. There was an opportunity to improve this city. All the experts were in agreement that the boulevard was the way to go - former planners for this city, the architecture faculty of the U of T, even former mayors. Not to mention the architecture critics of the major journals. You must be kidding.
In hindsight we should have demanded all those condos built along the Gardiner pay for burying the thing. Otherwise we're just helping the developers while not helping the city. In fact adding thousands of condos without any requirement for transportation infrastructure improvements (roads, transit, etc.) is a directly negative relationship with good city life.
