    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413

    I can't see a BRT corridor ever being needed for a bypass corridor like this. Any potential future demand here could be met with a 413 express bus route with stops built into the ramp terminals.

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413

    What's the point of a transitway through this corridor?

    Toronto | 6333 Hurontario | 35.91m | 7s | Dymon | TACT Architecture

    Is this the odd wedge of land just north of the 401?

    Toronto | Springbrook Hamlet | 38.45m | 10s | Crystal | Arch. Unfolded

    I'm always amazed at the way Queen St. dies away and loses its importance so quickly. PS: The rendering shows the building built to the street, but the plan shows it set well back...

    Toronto | 1575 Hurontario | 13.23m | 4s | Woodmere | Contempostudio

    I wonder why that McDonald's closed? Seemed to be in a good spot, even if somewhat isolated.

    Toronto | SmartCentres Pickering | 109m | 34s | SmartCentres | Turner Fleischer

    Funny to see all that vacant land right across the 401 considering the scale of this project.

    Toronto | 3300 Rutherford | ?m | ?s | ELAD Canada

    Another weird case of redevelopment (a newer plaza to boot) when there's still lots of empty fields along Rutherford further east.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    The MTO signs them in the 905 suburbs because they're not Toronto and the MTO treats them as such, even though the conditions are the same.

    That sign should say Kingston to match the 401 control cities.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    I find it stupid the way the 400 control cities are signed Parry Sound-Barrie as far north as Port Severn and then Toronto-Sudbury north of there. I'd think that would cause confusion driving north seeing Sudbury before reaching Parry Sound, especially since most people are only going as far as...

    Toronto | Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Promoting that number is the last thing Mississauga's urbanity needs.

    Aura at College Park | 271.87m | 78s | Canderel | Graziani + Corazza

    Actually, a Toronto winter is milder than summer at the South Pole, where the all-time record high was -13.

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413

    What does that have to do with making a single road corridor?
