    a full buildout of the Sheppard subway looks good on a map, but the $3 billion from it could be used in much better ways in other locations. A full sheppard subway would get around 7,000 PPHD, which...

    That's the Health Sciences building I believe. its the parking lot on Church just north of Dundas.

    Its actually a really cheap lot on weekends, $5 and only a 2 minute walk from the Eaton centre....

    colour doesn't need $2000 a square foot, but the quality seen in the buildings posted does. You would likely be looking at over $500 a square foot to simply build a place like that, ignoring aprroval...

    the busway? my understanding is that the next extension will come with the Marriott, with a stop on the eastern edge of that building.

    when the units start selling at $2,000 a square foot instead of $500, then you should expect that.

    No, the Spadina extension will be hitting 7,500 PPHD pulling into Downsview heading southbound. way, way above Sheppards current use in the 3,000 PPHD area. in sheer ridership numbers as well,...

    yes, I mean east.

    It just seems lonely now, once Beacon is built this will fit in just fine at street level.

    The Rob ford thread was racking almost 30 pages a day at one point IIRC... it is by far the largest thread on the forum, at least in terms of posts.

    Edit: yup, over 63,000 posts on it compared to...

    I've gone over this before, but the DRL north of Bloor would likely have PPHDs lower than the Sheppard subway.

    As long as it has direct PATH access, I'm down with that idea.

    Found this great photo on Reddit, it shows where the subway is fairly well:

    no clearance, in order to give enough room for cars on Lakeshore the bridge essentially has to be right up against the underside of the Gardiner.

    The architecture screams of HPA anyway, this is not a TFAI that is for sure.

    that last pic is the pit for the KPMG office building, the cranes in the background are for the subway.

    The +15 bridge is designed to be moved and remain open when moved to allow for maintenance to the Gardiner. It will (I believe) normally be "docked" in the western section, but will be moved...

    BA centre is thousands of times better than this. Just because its a box doesn't mean its bad architecture, I'm actually a huge fan of BAC, its easily the best office tower to go up since Scotiaplaza.

    Spadina and Front is around a 10 minute walk from Union, its far, but not really far. The two northern Eaton Centre towers are further away than this. (though they have subway access)

    Any idea what sales office is under construction in the 5th pic down? (first post)

    Passing track isn't long enough to be useful, there is a reason the current off peak trains short turn at unionville. The passing track is almost never used, it's too short for moving trains to go by...
