    Rexdale Plaza

    That would also help explain Rexdale Blvd's swoop that doesn't particularly match the grid.

    Yup! I saw Suede, Frente, the Smashing Pumpkins and a few others there.

    Rexdale Boulevard used to be Malton Road!?!?

    TTC: Easier Access Phase III

    It's funny. I posted an Instagram of the new Chester entrance the other day and these are the two responses I got from friends... "Has BC Ferries landed in Toronto?" "It's Coquitlam on The Danforth!" I don't mind it at all. It's fresh, pleasant and a bit different for the TTC.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    With Ford's re-election looking less likely, although, still fairly likely, any thoughts on what other parties may propose here? I doubt any party will want to go back to DRL for the sake of time and cancelling contracts. BUT... I can see at least the NDP devising something different for...

    Toronto | 5 Capri | 127.4m | 39s | Tenblock | BDP Quadrangle

    Is this project rental or condo?

    Toronto Media Landscape and Personalities

    Ironically, Sauga is located in Toronto.

    Lost Road: Indian Line Road

    As a former Maltonite, thank you for this picture. I'd love to see more!

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    Not that I'm a defender of the IOC or the Olympic Games themselves, which are largely an ad dollar circus. BUT... the movement is based on a competition of the world's best athletes, regardless of the country from which they hail or whatever government system the host country uses. I think there...

    News on retail chains (was: New Mall Retail)

    Clearly, I'm not a finance person, so don't quite understand how they are expanding globally while shuttering in their home. Still, I'd welcome Century21 in Canada. Perhaps a good use for some of the Hudson's Bay carcass at Yonge & Bloor.

    Dixie Outlet Mall Redevelopment (Slate/Choice Properties REIT, ?s, Giannone Petricone Associates)

    What!?! Why isn't that man crossing his arms for the photo!?!?

    Woodbine Centre

    It was a critical darling and may have even won an Oscar that year. But not a kid's movie by any means. I should probably give it a go as an adult.

    Woodbine Centre

    My mom dragged me as a kid to see Out of Africa at Woodbine Centre. I fell asleep. This picture was likely taken the same month.

    Toronto | Eaton Centre (Ongoing Renewal) | ?m | ?s | Cadillac Fairview | Zeidler

    I'd at least say the original Yonge frontage had a design consistency with the interior and was interesting, if not particularly functional. What was tacked on a generation later is a bit of a bad theme park version of a Main Street where most retailers keep their doors locked anyway. And...

    Toronto | Gehry Towers | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    I won't give it the added clicks by linking it, but the blogTO article on the project today still claims it will replace the Princess of Wales Theatre.
