    They‘re removing old utilities under Cherry Street.

    Platform Condos | 31.09m | 9s | Sierra | Kirkor Architects COMPLETE

    However, it seems the Beer Store will be a ground floor tenant. Cycled by the nearly completed building yesterday. Overall, I like the building’s look and scale. I hope we see similar ones on the Danforth, which is in need of modest intensification, especially above a subway line.

    Bloor Yorkville

    Yesterday, I noticed a drilling rig on the site of the former car wash at 822 Church Street.

    Yes, this design is curiously out of date with current practice to put the bike lanes beside the curb. Hopefully, they’ll change it.

    Toronto | 55C: 55 Charles Condos | 159.4m | 48s | MOD Developments | architectsAlliance

    It’s getting worse everywhere. Recently, I cycled northbound on Yonge Street around 5 pm and counted 6 vehicles, three on each side, between Wellesley and Charles, parked with 4-way flashers on, despite no parking signs at that time of day. Six!

    Really Well Built Condos

    My problem is less noise related than inconsiderate neighbours. Two who live in nearby units slam their doors, even after a friendly request to close them more quietly. Imagine reading or working quietly in your unit, and hearing doors slam unexpectedly, Water torture! It’s especially...

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    Egregious waste of money. Scarborough needs an LRT network, not a subway.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes headed downtown)

    Raising the road would solve one of the biggest hazards facing cyclists. The edge of the road is often deteriorated. Check out Dufferin in the vicinity of the Yorkdale Mall. It’s treacherous.

    There’s always the classic crowded No Frills on Parliament.

    The sidewalk is a jumbled mess. What’s going on?

    Toronto | 415 Yonge | 239m | 61s | Marwest | Kirkor Architects

    The proposed addition clashes with the old. Tear it down and build from scratch.

    I like it. 15 stories makes sense along this section of Church Street. I've hated that underused parking lot for ages! The proposal is an attractive building which fits into the surroundings. Now the question is when they'll do something with the parking lot on the southwest corner of Bloor and...
