    10 Dundas East (former Toronto Life Square, Ent Prop Trust, 10s, Baldwin & Franklin)

    Even Future Shop was a better use of space than Winners.

    Toronto's Culture Production Boom

    HSR between Toronto (either Union or Summerhill) and NYC (either Penn or Grand Central) would be a must for Universal Studios Niagara to be reality. It would allow New Yorkers to make a reasonable day trip to Universal Studios Niagara.

    Toronto's Culture Production Boom

    Yes. Just have Universal purchase Marineland and rename it Universal Studios Niagara. It's much easier, since the longtime owner of the former is deceased and is having financial issues (mainly due to animal abuse). It also has approximately a thousand acres to play with and is located close...

    Toronto Zoo Developments

    The article does not mention the maglev, which would be a huge draw, even for those not interested in seeing wildlife at risk in person.

    Toronto Raptors

    Apparently, the Frauds are more interested in the NFL than in the NBA. Raptors > a hypothetical Toronto NFL team

    Toronto Raptors

    As I said once, Toronto can offer everything for Kawhi (except weather and family). If Kawhi wants to cement his legacy, staying with the Raptors would be the best course of action for him. He is already the most popular current Raptor (many want his autograph). He gets the spotlight (and not...

    UrbanToronto Redesign

    Logging in works beautifully with Safari (Mac).

    TCDSB to charge teachers for parking at school lots!

    Educational assistants, such as those who accompany students with autism, would take a hit (and they have already taken numerous hits).

    Toronto Raptors

    Yesterday, I went to the SportChek in Maple Leaf Square. I waited in line for a few minutes just to enter the store. The draw: the 2019 Toronto Raptors NBA Champions Locker Room T-Shirt, the same one all the players wore when the Larry O'Brien Trophy was first presented. I purchased a...

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    Not just that, but the CIBC Square doesn't have a statuette of any historical personalities, unlike on the Comcast (William Penn). Speaking of statuettes, it would be interesting to place a statuette of Sir John Graves Simcoe on it (though it would be better placed atop the CN Tower).

    Toronto Raptors

    24 years in the making ... Trading a fan favourite in Demar DeRozan for Kawhi "Klaw, Fun Guy, Boardman" Leonard and Danny Green? Masai is a genius among geniuses. We shall not doubt the Masai. Nick Nurse is such an excellent tactician by the court. Kawhi shooting the game-winning...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    ... and both Montreal and Manhattan are heavily urbanized islands. Much of Toronto is on the mainland.

    Toronto | The Well | 174m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    The Well is shaping up to be a great place for professional athletes (and many others) to live in. It's within a stone's throw from the Rogers Centre and a short walk from the Scotiabank Arena, Lamport Stadium, the Coca-Cola Coliseum, and BMO Field.

    I’m tired of the lack of civility downtown

    Singapore chose the path of security. Even most chewing gum is banned and dental chewing gum requires a prescription from the physician. It is a very tough balancing act between freedom and security.

    Is the west side of Toronto more prominent than the east side?

    512 St. Clair would like a word with you. In a few years, Line 5 Eglinton would also like a word with you.

    Here you go: Apparently, it originated from a Reddit post (from a subreddit dedicated to funny things African Americans say on Twitter) about an angry African American uncle telling his nephew to delete his Facebook status about not wearing...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    I also don't use the cyan canary (for various reasons). Apparently, the TTC's marketing team is one decade behind. Twitter is no longer the hip new website. In fact, Twitter's main problem is handling almost a billion users and moderating extremely toxic tweets. No small number of these...

    Exhibition Place

    If the Ex gets an RMC hybrid coaster, it would be very interesting. Amusement Insiders once made a video about rumours Cedar Point is getting rid of Wicked Twister. It also looks good in the Ex.

    Post: How do you pronounce 'Toronto'

    Meanwhile, Atlantans call their city "Alanna." Therefore, dropping the "t" after an "n" is not uniquely a Toronto thing. However, I do pronounce the second "t" in both Toronto and Atlanta (though I do drop the first "t" for Atlanta).

    Peterborough Area and Highway 7 Corridor studies

    Given that Highway 407's eastern terminus will be at Highway 35/115 just north of Kirby, it would be interesting to develop that hamlet, given its proximity to the Ganaraska wind turbines. It would be interesting to make Kirby and Orono become completely wind-powered, while serving commuters...
