    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    I love the fact that this is like no other development in Toronto or even Canada. That glass canopy and the whole public realm is something special. I just wish they had more destination shopping instead of retail of just local interest. This one of a kind development is too good for a mundane...

    College Park is near by and it is still looking good, so why should this be any different?

    Churchill Meadows Community Centre (City of Mississauga, 1s, MJMA)

    This seems to be of high quality and situated in a park, which is a great move. It's good to see Mississauga is doing things right.

    I'm not sure what you're saying here. We already have Trillium park as part of Ontario Place, so I wasn't calling for more passive parkland but I will say that the proposed beach will be a nice addition to the public areas. I was calling for more year-round things to do for both Torontonians and...

    Why can't you have both? Have part of the attractions free of cost or low cost and also have some higher end attractions. This is public land, paid for by us, so why can't we have a say in how it's built? Does every paid attraction have to be expensive? Why not have a little something for...

    I agree, it is not needed as passive parkland. Do people not realize Ontario Place is surrounded on all sides by parks? Why not use such valuable land for what was intended, leisure activity, amusements, tourism, restaurants, bars, culture and dare I say it, FUN? Fun is not illegal in Ontario...

    How is Ontario Place going to be a year round attraction when the only new inside spaces are for the paid attractions? So, only people who want to swim or see a concert can find a space to get warm in the winter but for anyone else using the park, where do they go to get a bit of relief from the...

    There were periods where it was free too. I remember if you collected 3 milk carton tops you got in FREE! The price for admission had 2 options, admission with rides/attractions or just general grounds admission, which was low priced. Ontario Place was always very accessible. There was always...

    Ontario Place already has a new park, Trillium Park, just east of the main park and it is never very crowded. In fact, it has always been empty when I went there. Ontario Place is surrounded by parks on all sides, so there is no lack of public parkland here. We don't need more empty, passive...

    The one big thing they did wrong was take away the attractions they had and let the place go down hill from neglect. This does not happen by chance. Check this quote from the Toronto Star. “Ontario Place has been a drain on the government treasury for many years . . . it’s no longer...

    That concert was back from the 90's so maybe at that time they charged for Forum concerts but when I went back in the 70's/80's the shows were free with admission. I know because I saw many of them. I remember seeing Sly And The Family Stone along with Anne Murray, K C And The Sunshine Band and...

    I think in Toronto, you have to go big or go home. Top quality attractions bring in the crowds. Third rate attractions like the crappy Olympic Spirit in Dundas Square, do not last long here. You need to invest some serious money in this, if you want to make it successful. You also need to update...

    No, what lead to its closure is that they did not maintain the place and in fact, started to close down some of the main attractions. They rented out part of the park to a private company, Atlantis, for their own events and the general public was NOT invited. So the floating pods, that once had...

    I'm worried! My thoughts are that Ford will do as little as possible and this will not turn out to be a major attraction for the city. It will probably end up being passive parkland that is used as an event space for festivals, much as it does now but probably on a larger scale. This is NOT what...

    I'm thankful this tower is not grey and depressing. I'll take white over grey any day!
