    I'm not discussing space, cars obviously take more. What I meant was energy consumption.

    cars IIRC are the most efficient form of transportation if 3 or more people are in the vehicle. This isn't usually the case however.

    What ever happened to that planned tunnel under the rail tracks? This development looks like it would block it.

    Pace, core, dundas square gardens, 365 church, and now that new tridel building on church are all essentially student buildings. They just don't want people to know. I'm kind of doubtful that there...

    only major disagreement is with the Yonge extension, but otherwise great. L2 is probably better off along Dundas IMO as well, somehow. The tunneled portion in front of City hall is rather pointless,...

    ah yes forgot about the streetcar tunnel. Its been closed for so long now I guess you can't blame me :P

    I don't see why they can't add a connection to the Bay Street teamway or even an underground connection to the ACC.

    unlikely now that Nordstroms has moved to the Eaton Centre. Metrolinx just moved into its new office in Union station as well, they also aren't that large of an office tenant, certainly not enough to...

    between Eg West and Yonge. The drive from Brentcliffe to Yonge will be done using different TBMs.

    I've gone over stop spacing before, it would be fairly closely spaced along king but with very few stops (if any) when moving north to Bloor, so the trains would save a lot of time there. Under even...

    Glen Murray had made hints of relocating the bus terminal on Twitter.. I'm hopeful.

    If this is office space again though, there is a ton of space entering Marketing right now.. Are they really...

    Obviously my idea is the long term solution, other more basic fixes are required in the short term.

    I still think building the DRL on King, removing the 504, and pedestrianizing Queen is the best idea. You can remove the Richmond and Adelaide bike lanes and add a lane there again as well. Queen...
  16. The problem with the DRL is that the project...

    The problem with the DRL is that the project hasn't even been defined yet, its hard to support a project that at minimum is still 12 years away from opening.

    Chow's bus service pledge is one that...

    IKEA won't sell until park place is finished.

    Remember that IKEAs are huge facilities that are nowhere near cheap to construct, it's not like a walmart. A new location likely requires close to...

    you have to account for the reduction in road fatalities as well.

    4 lane rural highways are also much, much cheaper on a lane km basis than urban highways. $1.75 million per lane km roughly for...

    Toronto is cheaper as it is higher density, density means they can use the same amount of roads to service more people, same amount of firehalls, etc. Services are more efficient.
