    Toronto | Ontario Line | ?m | ?s

    Part of Ford's rationale for taking over transit construction is that they could do things more efficiently, more affordably, and faster. It's quite clear there is money available. I just can't accept that implementing the previous plan would mean the end of meaningful transit expansion...

    Toronto | Theatre District Residence & Riu Plaza Hotel | 156.05m | 49s | Plaza | BDP Quadrangle

    I wish they'd made the entire building brick.

    Toronto | Ontario Line | ?m | ?s

    That's because the priority was adding capacity to the subway system and relieving the Yonge Line. I don't understand this reasoning. How is the OL happening? There was nothing stopping Ford from proceeding immediately with the RL and starting the RL North.

    The RL was just phase 1 of a larger project. No reason the government couldn't have continued with it and proceeded immediately to phase 2.

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    This is becoming quite the addition to the downtown core. Great location too.

    Toronto | Ontario Line | ?m | ?s

    That's fair, however there will be a cost/inconvenience associated with downtown expansion at any point - unless it's believed this is the last downtown subway expansion that should be happening.

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    It may not be connected at the start, but there's nothing stopping that in the future.

    Toronto | Ontario Line | ?m | ?s

    That's fair. For me, Yonge Line Relief (which was the original goal of the line) is paramount, making a northern terminus at Don Mills a priority.

    While I'm a fan of westward expansion (and the two stations on King), he does have a point. I would've used those funds to ensure the first phase went to Sheppard before worrying about extending it to the Exhibition.

    Toronto | Ontario Line: Osgoode Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    Based on how they've done things so far, I think that's a fair assumption.

    Toronto | Ontario Line: Osgoode Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    Metrolinx plans to cut down historic Osgoode Hall trees after all At the very least, couldn't these trees be moved to a different location?

    Toronto | 839 Yonge | 160.2m | 49s | CT REIT | Adamson

    I don't mind the design (though it should extend to the top/bottom)...but the base looks ridiculous.

    Toronto | 675 King West | 65.82m | 19s | Colonia Treuhand Holdings | Sweeny &Co

    Can't say I'm impressed. Surely they could come up with a design and base that are a better fit for the heritage structure next door, and the area in general?

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    I don't understand why there's such a concern over costs with projects like this, when in the suburbs people are relatively okay with unlimited budgets. You're right - all things considered these would be very valuable upgrades.
