    6663-6671 Stanley Av + 5582-5640 Dunn St (Niagara Falls, ?, 3x 30s, Turner Fleischer)

    Council approved the ZBA on Tuesday night. In the bigger picture, Niagara Falls Council approved 718 new residential units this past Tuesday night - 583 units here, 96 units in a 9-storey project on Ferry Street, and 39 units in a stacked towns development a few KM south-west on Mcleod.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    If I recall correctly, the plans for the retrofit were made in either 2017 or 2018, with the intent that the public have access to viewing those docs. Reading between the lines on this topic, upper management wasn't exactly satisfied with the plans (nor the cost associated vs building new)...

    Heard from an LCBO employee that they're anticipating to move into the new flagship location before Christmas

    The heat. Similar reason why Texas and Houston both have em.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Shapiro and those behind the scenes have been adamant in a ballpark that would reconnect with the City, with a much more intimate feel. Seeing the work Shapiro and his team have done in Cleveland gives me confidence for Toronto. Remember that Texas is built out in the burbs, Miami isn't...

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Free agents would continue to refuse to sign in Toronto, star players previously under team control decide to opt out as they would prefer to play in ballparks with the latest amenities (not to mention real grass which makes zero sense to install at the dome from a feasibility standpoint), and...

    What's important to remember with Angel Stadium is that is was built as a baseball stadium first, then became multipurpose when the Rams moved in in 1980 - a much easier fix than the issues that would come up if a retrofit (which from what I know remains near the bottom of the list) were to...

    Basically, yes. Going back just over a decade, it looks like the Jays replace the turf about every 5 seasons. Some other key features are mentioned in this article, mentioning an improved sound system and the new turf being affixed to the ground. And if I'm not mistaken, I believe the roof...

    As for actual changes to the dome itself, new turf has been installed (and anything Roberto Alomar related has been removed - Level of Excellence, HOF banner). Uncharacteristically optimistic me hopes this is the second last turf the dome will see.

    Fully expecting MVP chants every time Vladdy comes to the plate at SkyDome for the rest of the season.

    For the 2nd time in 3 years. God the Leafs sure challenge one's sobriety.

    Toronto Maple Leafs

    If anything, at least fans can watch the Leafs collapse in full capacity this time next year (meaning April 23th-27th, typically).

    Toronto Maple Leafs

    This core just doesn't have any desire to actually try when it matters - no killer instinct at all and turn into boys amongst men. Marner (Marney, going forward, most likely) looked like a child, Matthews looked disinterested, but I thought Nylander played his best series of his career. This...

    Toronto Maple Leafs

    And now after getting Carey Priced in back to back games (and poor starts to both games 5 & 6), Game 7 is allowing 550 fully vaccinated front line workers to the game with MLSE covering the tickets and jerseys for those attending. Leafs have only lost 1 game 7 at home, and that was back in...

    They will build a second level over the south stands as the roof was built to accommodate this. I'm hoping it will look much better than it did during TFC's first finals run/Grey Cup/Centennial Classic, even if it's temporary.

    6663-6671 Stanley Av + 5582-5640 Dunn St (Niagara Falls, ?, 3x 30s, Turner Fleischer)

    Two 30-storey residential towers with 583 units, and a 30-storey hotel with 300 units are proposed at the south-west corner of Stanley Ave and Dunn St. in Niagara Falls - directly south of the approved 72-storey tower site. Turner Fleischer is designing this one. Addresses are 6663, 6683, 6671...

    That's too bad about the restaurants, I quite liked going to Dukes' when I lived in the area. BB&B I'm not really too surprised; you could often find what you were looking for at Marshalls for a fraction of the cost. Has anyone been down in the basement level recently? I'm curious on how the...

    Interestingly enough the Twins did pursue a retractable roof in 1997, and would have probably been considered the best retractable roof stadium even in 2020. Photos from a book I own.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    I forget if it was the 2015 or 2016 season I looked into, but I was bored one day a few years back and tallied the games with the roof open vs closed. Roof was opened 60% of all home games that season. Assuming that number is consistent give or take 5% per year, there’s somewhat strong...
