    My mistake. Thought it was just storage.

    There is also a proposal for the other side of the street. I know it involves the Westown Chinese Restaurant and flower shop, can't remember if it involves Coffee Time but I think it does. Would be great to see Planet Storage just on the other side of the tracks converted to residential as...

    77 King Street (TD Centre) Revitalization

    While LESS IS MORE is a fine modernist sentiment, the gaudy green "50" sign and tacky patio and chairs in the courtyard do not scream "Mies" to me.

    This isn't possible! The "L" in "GLOBE" would be turned over.

    Toronto | 1540 Bloor West | ?m | 29s | Trinity Group

    I remember arguing briefly with Gord Perks at my doorstep during the 2010 election about the Giraffe and that we were going to have a derelict building at a prime (though incredibly ugly) corner for over 5 years because of that decision. Those 5 years have come and gone and it seems no closer to...

    If it wasn't for the missing "be", the sentence would be just fine.

    A. They hadn't told us when I raised the query, just after I boarded GO due to UPX suspended service; B. Wasn't even suggesting UPX should have to tell us, just noted that I didn't understand the issue, on p. 541 of a thread dedicated to every piece of minutiae about this service. And smallspy...

    It was a significant enough issue that the papers are covering it so I don't think we are just unnecessarily looking "for every little detail". As a commuter I am used to having to deal with delays, whether they be TTC, GO or UPX. But for travelling to the airport such delays can become a major...

    I don't understand how these signals work but I find it surprising UPX shuts down for signal issues but I can take Kitchener GO on the same line instead.

    Took the UPX home from Jays Home Opener Friday. It was packed, standing room only, wouldn't be surprised if not everyone got on. Forgot to check whether they had the presence of mind to be running a 3 car train. The fare inspector started at the seats in front of me, and proceeded to spend the...

    As someone who rides UPX regularly, this made me spit out my coffee.

    We definitely need another coffee shop on Roncy, so hopefully the render comes true!

    It's not ideal but hardly a confusing mess. Given that the original implementation had substantially higher fares for UPX it was necessary to have the separate Presto machines. Now that they have reduced fares hopefully they can eliminate the UPX readers in time but cannot expect that they would...

    Oh, leave the boy alone. In other news, I'm surprised the ridership has only doubled. Keeps getting busier and busier.

    Toronto | Aquabella at Bayside | 51m | 14s | Tridel | 3XN

    The ODA design reminded me of the Arquitechtonika (yes I know spelled horribly wrong, too lazy to check) design for the Donlands that appears to have been scrapped. There seems to be a pattern of firms releasing their unaccepted proposals when they are vastly superior to what the developers...
