    Restaurant Comings & Goings

    Scaddabush is significantly more upmarket than what Olive Garden is. Olive Garden would compete with the likes of Kelseys and Boston Pizza, not Jack Astors and Milestones. As for the East GTA, the area is dominated by blue collar workers who are a bit more budget conscious than most of the GTA...

    Toronto Bike Share

    hopefully installations increase in pace soon, only 100 stations to go this year.

    Ontario Northland and the End of the Northlander

    Cape Breton is the only real comparison as the central urbanized portion is significantly smaller than the metro population suggests. Fredricton has a metro of 100k but it mainly comes from exurban villages and estate subdivisions. Plus it’s hundreds of kilometres from a major city. Population...

    Ion Light Rail (Kitchener-Waterloo, U/C) & King/Victoria Transit Terminal

    I seem to recall that the actual capital portion is in and around $5 billion, and those initial tunnel contracts IIRC were in the $700 million range.. Meaning total capital outlay in the $6 billion range.

    Ion Light Rail (Kitchener-Waterloo, U/C) & King/Victoria Transit Terminal

    That cost includes 30 years of operations and maintenance as well.. It's not a $9 billion capital outlay.

    Toronto Zoo Developments

    The Zoo should run it as its own private shuttle without using the unnecessary TTC infrastructure. And don't run it from STC, nobody wants to have to take the SRT.. Go from Don Mills and maybe make a stop at STC, and run it as a private shuttle. Lots of places in the city run private shuttles...

    The United BLDG (Davpart/H&R Developments) - Real Estate -

    From what I've heard The Well is selling at about $1200. So way cheaper, and with a delivery timeline in only 3 years instead of 6-7. The Well seems like a great project, I'd be all over it if I was in the market right now. This isn't it.

    Toronto | Water's Edge at the Cove (was Waterways) | 182m | 56s | Conservatory Group | Richmond Architects

    It's not like it hasn't been done, but it is a lot. Shangri-La is the deepest in the city from my understanding and it is 8 levels I believe.. 33 Yorkville is just starting a 7 level garage as well. Paradoxically the deeper garages tend to be in the suburbs since so little parking is required...

    Toronto Zoo Developments

    Well given that there is no regional government level in the GTA, it should fall to the next best thing, the Province. While it's not the only zoo in the province, it is by far the largest I would be surprised if the majority of the province hadn't visited at some point. I grew up in the outer...

    Ontario Northland and the End of the Northlander

    It's the third largest and is barely even a city. Really more of a large town. The extended metro area barely breaks 100k in population.. Central Fredricton is probably half that. It's like complaining that Owen Sound doesn't have a rail link.

    Toronto | M1 & M2 at M City | 198m | 60s | Rogers Real Estate | Core Architects

    To say that the Hurontario LRT is without politics is a giant farce. Just not on the Missississauga side of the border.. and even then, the mayor isn't happy with Metrolinx's removal of the downtown loop. Most development projects in Toronto don't get media attention anyway beyond development...
