If this proposal was a school project, I could appreciate it on a certain level. However this Baron Hausmann urban-planning approach to turning Glencairn Avenue into a Grand Boulevard (while expropriating/demolishing hundreds of some of the most expensive houses in the city between Bathurst and Yonge) is such a non-starter on so many levels.......
I was actually thinking of the east end:
But that aside..........you're far too offended.
There is no project.
It was a quick example of what could be achieved, a theoretical one.
I could just as easily have said between 'Lawrence and Ellesmere'.
It was to illustrate what can be achieve while causing relatively little disturbance to much of the SFH area; yet still providing substantial new density.
I'm not expropriating anyone's home.
That said, massive intensification/development is already occuring and is likely to continue unabated. People will find they have to come up with concepts they prefer, if they wish to avoid others.
The status-quo, is not really on the table.
Why is there no station at Glencairn at Yonge, while there is one on the Spadina line? Because the North Toronto Ratepayers did not want a station that would attract hi-rise development. This is the world we still live in.
North Toronto has opposed the vast majority of development at Yonge and Eglinton; and lost across the board.
They turfed a City Councillor for supporting one development, to find far more happening under the next.
While I'm not the champion of any specific proposal on Glencairn (that was your idea)..........
Development is coming, at scale, to that area of Yonge. (also nothing to do with me)
