    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I don't think this could be really compared to Bloor St. The flora in the Portlands should have every reason to thrive, except for road side plantings as always. I'm not sure if the city or province did the planting at Trillium Park at Ontario Place but I would say most things are thriving there...

    Toronto | College Park Revitalization with Barbara Ann Scott Skate Trail | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | RAW Design

    How long until the flower beds become weed beds and the water features don't work?

    What an awesome project this is. Some damn fine city building if you ask me.

    Yorkville Village: 102-108 Yorkville Avenue | 13m | 3s | First Capital | Kearns Mancini COMPLETE

    Whether you still dislike it or not this is why you wait to see what the final product is going to look like. I swear half the posts in these threads are of people bitching about things that are cleared up come completion time.

    Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) | ?m | 1s | TTC | IBI Group

    Disgusting? They are providing a free to use service they could pull the plug on tomorrow if they felt like it.

    Toronto | Lakeview Village | ?m | ?s | Greenpark | Sasaki

    Amazing project. However one major negative. Right beside a waste water treatment plant.

    York Street Park (Waterfront Toronto/City of Toronto)

    Not thrilled with this one. As mentioned the heart will be empty half the year collecting garbage and who knows what not all. The heart also takes up too much of the space. Beyond that why sit and look at this little heart when you can sit and look at one of the largest lakes in the world across...

    The Toronto Tree Thread

    I would imagine areas further from the Lake would start to change colour first. The moderating effect of Lake Ontario means warmer Autumn nights closer to the lakeshore and less threat of frost.

    The Toronto Tree Thread

    I live in Cobourg and one neat thing the arborist and parks department has done is to keep the little tag on new trees so you can see what they are. There is a major push to diversify the tree stock. Three I noticed yesterday were Maidenhair Ginkgo Biloba, Sycamore London Planetree and Tulip...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    It's 6 lanes well passed Bowmanville to Cobourg. As we speak an additional 8 km of highway is being 6 laned east of Cobourg. Slowly but surely it is happening.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    I mean I'm sure they worked hard and all but that was pretty terrible.

    Toronto | One Bloor East | 257.24m | 76s | Great Gulf | Hariri Pontarini

    That would be fine and all but then again you don't have to live there. I'm sure the people LIVING in it will appreciate their balconies.

    Toronto | Queens Quay & Water's Edge Revitalization | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I agree with this 100%. Everybody loves leafy trees but the fact is they are drab barren sticks for half of the year. Why don't we see more evergreens? It's like the winter months are completely ignored.

    Planned Sprawl in the GTA

    Some new Cobourg sprawl that I think is quite alright. New Amherst July 27 2010 085 by New Amherst, on Flickr New Amherst July 27 2010 105 by New Amherst, on Flickr New Amherst July 27 2010 007 by New Amherst, on Flickr New Amherst July 27 2010 113 by New Amherst, on Flickr...
