    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    The mayor has things a bit jumbled. Many of the complaints were about direct bus service (express to Markham GO) being replaced with a train and bus connection that almost doubled travel times and severely reduced frequencies. Of course we'd rather have trains, but for anyone north of Unionville...

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Since Oxford own everything north of the tracks between Blue Jays Way and Simcoe, this could turn into something pretty spectacular, especially if the Rogers Centre is somehow a part of the plans.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Good news on the daytime trips! Why not extend the 20:00 as well though? Especially since I believe it's stored at Lincolnville overnight anyway.

    York Region Transit: Viva Rapidways Construction

    Does anyone have any idea where the eastern section of Highway 7 East (Kennedy to the Cornell Terminal) would fall? "Remainder of Highway 7" shows up three times.

    100-110 Clegg Road (New World Centre (Markham) Development Corp, 34 + 37s + Midrises, ?)

    Another big Markham Centre proposal -- 2200 units.

    Toronto | 10 Dawes | 110m | 33s | Trolleybus | IBI Group

    I see this building from the GO Train every day and I've always found it curious. It looks like something you'd see in a rural Ontario ghost town.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    That's good to know -- thanks for that!

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    My point was more that greater frequencies north of Unionville will be needed eventually, understanding that it's not part of the current plan.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    I'm ok with it being done in phases, but I really hope plans are made to twin the rest of the Stouffville line, especially as the entire line is planned for electrification.

    RioCan Hall Redevelopment (259 Richmond St W, RioCan, ?s, Hariri Pontarini)

    This looks almost pomo to me.

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

    346k for 3,500 employees, so not quite that large but still pretty significant.

    Toronto | 1075 Bay | 238m | 66s | Canderel | Hariri Pontarini

    I suspect this will be another Toronto Frankenstein special where everything new is built on top.

    RioCan Hall Redevelopment (259 Richmond St W, RioCan, ?s, Hariri Pontarini)

    This is a lot of opportunity here -- I'd like to see retail, office and residential.

    Downtown Markham

    True, but as someone who is in the area to see a movie or visit something in the main retail building, I'm unlikely to go to a business that's not directly on Enterprise (unless it's something very unique).

    TTC: Yonge North Subway Extension (Finch-Richmond Hill) (Unfunded/Planned)

    This would absolutely be better than a Yonge Extension for Markham. From a Markhamite's perspective, it's not that most of us don't recognize the safety issues with Yonge/Bloor but it's disappointing where we've gone from a situation where various studies have told us that with ATC there would...
