    Cycling infrastructure (Separate bike lanes headed downtown)

    In the east end, Jones and Woodbine are like Runnymede. The bike lanes on Greenwood and Logan are level with the road, but so are the sidewalks.

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 240m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    With four levels of underground parking, it looks like they are getting close to the full excavation depth along the north side.

    Should cities start blocking urban sprawl?

    Not quite a apples-to-applies comparison as the post-war suburbs have a much greater area. East York for example a has a higher population density and high-rise density than Scarborough does. East York area: 21.26 km2 pop. density: 5,553.7/km2 high-rise density 2.35/km2 Scarborough...

    Toronto | 756 Warden | 12m | 2s | SRN Architects Inc.

    A marijuana production facility is not a high-security jail. There are marijuana production facilities inside industrial buildings all over the City from Etobicoke to Scarborough. And yes, Scarborough has a large industrial base, much like Etobicoke has a large residential base. You have...

    Toronto FC

    Should TFC prevail tonight over Atlanta, it will set up a third finals match vs. Seattle in the last 4 years. With TFC and Seattle each winning one, the 2019 finals would be the rubber match. Still have a formidable opponent in Atlanta to get past. Go TFC!

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    The west has a relief line, it's the University-Spadina branch of Line 1. UP Express is another option for the west end.

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 3, 4 & 7 | 49m | 13s | Dream | COBE Architects

    Toronto | Union Centre | 267m | 52s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    Especially, like at The Well, when there is a road between their site and the rail corridor. Would they have to deck over Front St as well?

    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 307m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    From the City's Application Information Centre for Phases 2 and 3 (Site Plan Approval application 17 108913 STE 28 SA) showing the limits of each phase and location of each tower. As I42 mentioned, everything is within the existing property limits. Excavation for Phases 2 and 3 will be just as...

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    I wonder if the TTC will keep one on hand for charters and the Beaches Easter parade?
