Overall they've done a decent job with the public realm although it's awfully grey. Canadian cities (Lower Mainland BC excluded) are going to look that way for 5 months of the year. They really needed to go with a strong rich colour with those lamp posts and perhaps a few other elements. Fire engine red, bright blue, etc. Something to mitigate all the drab hues.Today
Toronto is steadily getting better at public realm. If we paid attention to some of these final details like colour we'd be almost there.
