    But more importantly, why is the pool-water at 1 Bloor E green? 🤢

    Oh, what a mess.... Are the ugly EIFS 2nd/3rd floor facades the result of value engineering or was this the plan the whole time?

    Even little fences around the base of each tree would do. Just need to keep the urine out of the critical root zone. I doubt you need to fence out to the boundary of the drip zone.

    Everything turns into a dog toilet. Follow the egress to any newish park, and the first tree available will be dead or dying. Guess why? I don't understand why the city doesn't protect trees from dog urine. Maybe put up decorative posts at the entries of all parks which can serve us an output...

    Church-Wellesley Village

    Fly is closing on June 30th. Apparently this time "for good", as the building is to be demolished for a condo (obviously). The Village loses its only proper dance club...

    I've been 3 times now. The food was always good, but the service is still a work-in-progress.

    Looks great from the West. Looks pretty bad from the North. The North face looks like a different building, and not in a good way. Overall design is not coherent.

    Because "development" is something that's lacking in Toronto...

    Might as well put up the next "For Lease" sign next to that one...

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    @BurlOak Totally agree with you on Trudeau, but I'm wondering about your views on: - the concept of remediation/deferred prosecution agreements - how cozy governments are with big business - the obvious fact that Harper's government would have done the same as Trudeau's (but perhaps not got...

    Because Clark is going to have a better idea of where the project is at since they are managing it. But in reality, because the Master Schedule is an integral contract document, no one is going to tell you what's really going on. You'll get a communications piece fed to you, which will make...

    You would have had extra maintenance fees to pay for 2X as many parking levels, so you need to compare it against that. Also, if excavation was expensive, the builder would have tried to recoup some of that extra cost from you via a higher sale price for your unit.

    It looks like the parking stackers were deleted and replaced with car elevators (which simply replace the drive-down ramps).
