    Emerald Park Condos | 129m | 40s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli COMPLETE

    So will residents see their condo fees spike up in order to cover all the damage that was done? I presume a lawsuit can be filed against the builders if it can be proved shoddy workmanship is responsible, but it'll take years before residents see any money from that. These repairs need to be...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    Adding HOV lanes in the newly constructed express lanes on the 401in Mississauga was such a foolish idea. I don't think there should be HOV lanes anywhere on the express/ collectors portions of the 401.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    I've lived in Oakville my whole life and the HOV lanes on the QEW have accomplished not very much since their inception in 2011. They perhaps help to alleviate congestion on the weekends, but that's about it. I often find myself passing people on the HOV lane during peak traffic hours because...

    Jasonzed's myDrone Activity of Toronto and Area

    It's kind of bizarre seeing all these condos and intensification being built right next to those detached homes near Burnhamthorpe Rd. I wonder what a long time home owner in that area makes of all the construction. Although I would imagine in the last 5-7 years a lot of those houses in that...

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Wow! I never thought they would actually go through with this in my life time. Figured ownership would just follow Oakland's lead and tell us to live with it. This is big news! Even if you're not a Blue Jays/ baseball fan. This going to entirely change the downtown core. I suppose the Blue Jays...

    Roads: Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Highway 410 (MTO, U/C, Planned)

    Guarantee we're going to see people pulling over and standing on that huge middle barrier. Probably taking selfies of themselves standing in the middle of the 401. Why didn't they add an extra express lane in each direction instead of creating that ridiculously huge middle barrier?

    Dark Mode option

    Any chance this forum will be implementing a "Dark Mode" option we can select in our accounts? I've enabled "Dark mode" in just about every other site I visit. Youtube, Reddit, Facebook, etc. I find the brightness of this forum really strains my eyes. Especially when I view it at night.

    A tree? In the middle of the 401? Come on now....

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway catch-all, incl. Hybrid Design (2015-onwards)

    More construction on the west end of the Gardiner? Didn't the west end already get refurbished? Resurfaced, new middle median, overhead bridge replacements. Particularly the Humber River to Fraser st. portion.

    Roads: Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Highway 410 (MTO, U/C, Planned)

    Will there be preparations put in place for the future construction of the new "Western GTA", 400 series highway starting at the 401/407 junction?

    Hurontario LRT | Metrolinx

    Surprised at how accommodating the 407 has been. Are they allowing this construction purely as good PR? Doesn't the 407's contract with the province forbid the construction of mass transit projects near or on 407 property?

    Roads: Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Highway 410 (MTO, U/C, Planned)

    I should have rephrased my earlier post. Most trucking lines will offer 407 services (at a premium), but the customers (Wal-mart, Canadian Tire) always want the cheapest form of shipping possible. This way they can offer lower prices at their stores. Toll all the highways and we'll either have...

    Roads: Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Highway 410 (MTO, U/C, Planned)

    If trucking companies were willing to pay tolls, than why do you hardly ever see them using the 407? They're even willing to be stuck in traffic on the 401 for hours rather than use the 407. I work in logistics and deal with trucking companies all the time. Time is money. Traffic eats into their...

    Roads: Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Highway 410 (MTO, U/C, Planned)

    That's dumb! The collectors lanes need to be consistent all the way through. It's pointless to have the express/collectors setup for only a short distance. Look at the traffic mayhem on the 401 between the 427 and the 409. All that collectors and express traffic merging together once you hit the...
