    Toronto | 778 King West | 63.3m | 17s | Lamb Dev Corp | a—A

    Another victory for Architects Alliance's quest to obliterate and destroy every inch of character in Ontario.

    Liberty Village pedestrian link

    So, it didn't burn down, fall over, then sink into the swamp. Not trying hard enough.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Um, no. Those are the GO platforms that touch Eastern. The OL platform is the small center one roughly in the middle of the site.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    I'm not sure how Toronto's civic mindset got to the point that building a rail yard beside a much needed transit line in an ugly low-rise industrial area became a battle in the culture wars. Where is the outcry over ripping out part of the historic fence and trees at Osgoode?

    Park Lawn Lake Shore Transportation Master Plan

    Why can't designers of bridges and stations draw in a simple staircase to augment their 500 foot sloped walkways? There seems to be a professional code, in the same way that architects only wear black turtlenecks and design buildings that resemble black turtlenecks.

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    That's only partly true. The Relief plan stations would have had exits directly to York and Bay, hooking into PATH, so that the exits at Yonge and University would be less congested. The OL plan will likely see more people transferring as a result because they are further from destinations...

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Here's why. We can't keep tearing down massive, publicly funded concrete structures after 10% of their lifespan for the sake of fashion. Because money, because climate change. Same nonsense as the Scarborough Subway boondoggle.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    I think an elevated people mover, monorail, or gondola system between Exhibition and Ontario Place would not only serve the transportation need, but also be a fun experience. Not sure it would be economically viable though. A spur of the Bathurst line would make sense.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Poison ivy is a pretty ground cover too.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    They love pink tunnels in Asia. Hong Kong built one between a ferry terminal and a bus stop. Everyone stands in the middle of it to pose endlessly for pictures. That works well...

    Bathurst Quay Revitalization: Canada Malting Silos, Ireland Pk, Waterfront Promenade (was Metronome)

    We keep pretending they are going to be turned into something, but the reality is the silos at Bathurst Quay want nothing more than to crumble and fall down, which would be actually more interesting to watch, but they've been turned into a sort of sacred cow that has to be kept aloft at great...

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    Certainly the biggest negative environmental cost benefit ratio ever.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    There is no case for covering the bridge over the Don River Valley. Unless we are going to cover the road bridge as well. Transit riders (on emission-free vehicles) deserve to enjoy the view on their commute more than individual drivers. The same twisted logic led to burying the lrt in Ottawa...

    VIA Rail

    Ah, Sharbot Lake. That's going to be interesting; there are no solutions to the route past there that are both affordable and easy.
