    Toronto | 2150 Lake Shore | ?m | 71s | First Capital | Allies and Morrison

    I like the look of the denser HBS skyline and the improved urbanization of that area (walking down Park Lawn to enjoy the area is rather bleak). My concern is the traffic issue that needs to be addressed. Immediately north of The Queensway is a residential neighbourhood that is comprised of...

    Fountain at Four Seasons

    I just wanted to put something out there for thoughts and advice. That beautiful fountain in the Four Seasons entrance (that can't be turned on because it soaks arriving guests when there is a breeze) should be given to installation in another part of the city where it can actually be turned on...

    Toronto | The One | 309m | 85s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    On the contrary, I probably GET IT more than you might presume. I'm born and raised in this city. I've watched any sense of our history being demolished by many devolopers, as I approach retirement. That little bank facade in BCE Place brings me a sense of warmth and joy for the past. If we...

    Toronto | The One | 309m | 85s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I tried to find contact info for Mizrahi Developments but couldn't. I had an idea. I would assume that this development would have to have retail. It would be great if they just "turned it inside out". Use the Art Deco carved stone walls on the interior public realm (if there is a retail...

    Princess Margaret Hospital Expansion/Renovation (?, ?, Hariri Pontarini/NORR)

    I had to go there last week for an MRI on my go to the hospital in the Trillium Network that has a machine available. My second time having to go there. You walk in from the back entrance as University Ave is usually locked after 10 and they do MRI's around the clock. When you walk...

    Toronto | Mirvish+Gehry Toronto | 329m | 91s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    Lol,I perceived it differently after reading what Big Daddy said about it looking like two people meeting and Toronto meaning Meeting Place. I saw the one on the right being female with a bustle skirt in the back (period dress for the time when Toronto was founded) and the tower on the left is...

    Yonge Street Revitalization (Downtown Yonge BIA/City of Toronto)

    For those in my community and of my age group....I forgot to mention....the 1am drag show at the Club Manatee...running by Katrina's disco to grab a slice of great pie and a coffee at the Cafe New Orleans....the damn ceiling fans and paned windows would be, in my imagination, the closest I'd get...

    Yonge Street Revitalization (Downtown Yonge BIA/City of Toronto)

    Hi I'm glad I brought up the Yonge Street Parade of yesteryear. I've read some really great responses/opinions. One comment I would make, I had mostly young friends and a few older ones. The young ones, such as myself at the time, were lucky if we earned 9 or 10 grand a year before taxes. We...

    Yonge Street Revitalization (Downtown Yonge BIA/City of Toronto)

    I hope someone can answer this question that has been in my mind for a while now. When I was in my teens, early 20' 1979 to early 80's....I remember being with friends driving up and down Yonge Street on a Friday or Saturday night along with the masses. It was everyone cruising north and...

    Hi Ed Thanks for that info. Glad to hear he's okay! When you run into him again, tell him we miss him and his contributions.

    Just a quick question to anyone who might know. I used to thoroughly enjoy the observations and comments of Urban Shocker. Met him once at a get together of UT. Very nice and informative person. Does anyone know what happened to him? I really miss his posts.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Ford Disloc(N)ation needs to get off the crack pipe as well! They need to find their homes with their beds....and sleep on it.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Like it or not....Gay Pride Week is a huge money maker for this city. It is one of the biggest Pride Celebrations on the planet. Next year is WORLD Pride... And Toronto was selected to host it. Remember not only Rob's lies about inhaling smoke on the video he claimed never existed....he also...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    With or without all the stuff Ford seems to have involved himself with, there's one thing that should be noted. Quite simply, he seems to have LIED to his employers (citizens of Toronto). Not sure about all of you, but if I lied to my employer....grounds for dismissal if caught. What's the...
