    Yeah, have fun sitting in traffic dumping off of the 401.

    GO Transit Fleet Equipment and other

    Well they wouldn't be replacing cars, it would be either refurbishment or brand new eh?

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    As an international airport, should it not bear the name of a national figure like a former PM (Toronto Pearson, Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Saskatoon Diefenbaker, Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier)? I think Lyon Mackenzie King would be a good candidate, especially given that his government created...

    West Don Lands: Block 8 (?, ?, aA)

    Or at least a bloody crosswalk. The old fashioned kind.

    Forum Upgrade

    I think we can add colour without differentiating people based on 'rank.'

    I'm pretty indifferent to the changes, but I do like the bigger profile pics. My only other comment is on the colour scheme. There's lots of grey, it really washes it out a bit. Perhaps there's some additional blue accents to work in somewhere?

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    There's this map of where all the lines in Canada are and who owns them, but it doesn't have the sub names unfortunately. I'm happy to clarify my post for those unfamiliar with the names.

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    Yeah, but unfortunately that's not going to happen until you find CP a bypass. There are good chances of building a freight bypass between Milton and Halwest, maybe you could get away with extending CP parallel with the Halton sub to the MacTier, but good luck trying to get them further east.

    The yellow tape is a nice addition. 'Caution passengers; don't grow super tall and poke your head in the ceiling.'

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    Don't forget they need to rotate out 67 of the delivered vehicles, and send them to Quebec for that welding problem.

    Toronto | CIBC Square | 241m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    Gotta make it a suitable environment for bankers to loiter in eh? Wow, this is almost misleading. A) It makes it look like the green roof on the Union trainshed is part of the park, B) wasn't the green roof abandoned?

    1507 Avenue Road

    Zoned as Commercial-Residential, right on the northeast corner of Avenue Road and Lawrence Avenue West. This is an old Mac's that went belly up some time ago, and has stayed vacant for some time. Drove by yesterday, and there's fencing up, and the windows are now boarded up. No applications in...
