    Sorry, thread title error. Should be Markham & Ellesmere, instead of Elles/Shep.

    I usually cringe when I hear the names, Turner & Fleischer, but considering the location and what it's replacing, this actually looks alright/tolerable. The buildings will line-up with the main street, and there will be ground-floor retail.

    It's nice to finally see some pedestrian friendly development going up in Scarborough.

    Is this actually pedestrian friendly or just high density? It seems like the usual policy of loading up suburban arterial intersections with high density apartments without any care of how to provide the necessary services/amenities to support the population. Scarborough's been doing the same thing since the 1970s.

    Funny how the render neglects to depict this building directly across the street.

    The SUV in that magazine spread was gigantic. Glad they got the scale right in the other render.

    I agree with Silence and Motion. This isn't "pedestrian friendly". This is a self-contained, automobile-oriented high density, masterplanned condo project that is built with complete disregard for the surrounding area and users others than its own residents.

    It's basically Dubai in the snow.
