    Toronto | M3 at M City | 260.29m | 77s | Rogers Real Estate | IBI Group

    The trouble with Mississauga is that there isn't much to walk or bike to - except your home. There is no sidewalk culture - except for a few small exceptions.

    Possible, but my impression is that the proponents want to build. There are far less expensive routes to take to wrest a high expropriation cost. There will be a limit on cost that the city is willing to incur. They will will simply walk once the cost is deemed to be too high or politically...

    Then the proponent is spending a lot of money on a project they don't intend to build. Why would they be going through this exercise?

    41, 47 Fraser + 135 Liberty Potential Redevelopment (Allied REIT, ?s, ?)

    Go to virtually any LPAT where a heritage matter is included and you will often experience remarks or accusations of inconsistencies and misapplication of the heritage provisions by the city. It is unfortunate as, on the one hand, inconsistencies often works against legitimate preservation...

    Sorry about that. My understanding is that it was publicly accessible.

    As was mentioned earlier, the case is presently in front of the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal.

    It should be public. No login required.

    The Rail Deck joint document book from the ongoing LPAT. Hope the link works...

    If it is to be a legacy then it needs to be more than a collection of tennis courts and some patches of grass that will be browned by endless dog pee. To be clear, this park will be a project coming with a price tag way north of a billion dollars. That number already puts the whole thing into...

    If the "park" portion could flow into the linear park north of CityPlace and convert the roadway there into something a little less "roadway," and more of a shared throughway, the park space would feel that much larger, diminishing the impact of the proposed towers. While I'm ambivalent about...

    Careful, you don't want anyone to get ideas ...

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    Looking forward to seeing the start of the second building. Screw this virus and all the anti-urban twaddle that's been associated with it.

    The LPAT proceedings are now under way. The joint document book is in 16 volumes and is over 16,000 pages. The proceeding are solely focused on the applicant's proposal and not on the city's plan (if they actually have one).
