    TTC: Easier Access Phase III

    So they're digging up the relatively new path already?

    Toronto | Wellesley on the Park | 194.15m | 60s | Lanterra | KPMB

    They are mowing the lawn today. The crates had coloured paving bricks, which were inlaid into the centre of the circle. The only thing I see that's left to address is an awkward pole sticking out of the ground on the south side of the park, next to an access hatch. It has some controls or...

    Toronto | U of T: Schwartz Reisman Innovation Centre | ?m | 20s | U of T | Weiss/Manfredi

    The quality of the concrete panels is really poor when seen from street level. Each one has two little marks where the chains used to secure the panels to the truck have rubbed against the vertical part. I don't know why they didn't secure them better.

    Toronto | Manulife Centre Podium and Streetscape Renewal | 9.75m | 2s | Manulife Real Estate | MdeAS Architects

    You can take the north elevators (the one by the Men's washroom) to reach the checkout area on the 2nd floor.

    Toronto | Maple Leaf Square | 185.92m | 54s | Lanterra | KPMB

    I don't see what the issue is. AFAIK people turn themselves in all the time. Are people worried there's an imminent risk of her throwing another chair off another balcony?

    Toronto | One Bloor East | 257.24m | 76s | Great Gulf | Hariri Pontarini

    The store has plenty of junk made for the outlet market, but it is definitely higher-end than a Winners. The selection isn't as good as the American Racks I've visited but the menswear section included many items you'd see at Harry Rosen. I don't think the marked down to $750 Pal Zileri jackets...

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    That's the point, isn't it? In the UK you'll find small supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury's, maybe an M&S) in the station that sells these things.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes headed downtown)

    That's probably overstating it. I go through there every day and haven't seen a car. There are a couple issues with the path though. One is the fact that many people heading west along Wellesley in rush hour are actually heading to King's College Circle (instead of Hoskin) and to get there you...

    TTC: New Fare Gate Installation

    The gates at Lawrence are powered but still fenced off.

    Rail Deck Park (?, ?, ?)

    Isn't there a distinction between trenches that have been decked over (e.g. south of St. Clair) and areas above a lined tunnel? Chances are you're going to have more soil over the second.

    General cycling issues (Is Toronto bike friendly?)

    You can get a Simcoe signature 7-speed with an enclosed chain case. They don't come with the centre stand though. Any ideas on where to donate a bike these days?

    Drilling platform in Lake Ontario

    It's probably an anemometer measuring the potential for placing a wind turbine there.

    Metrolinx: Sheppard East LRT (In Design)

    Also, I thought the tiles were because of a fire?

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    I don't expect that every emergency subway replacement shuttle will have Presto. I do wonder when you heavily market streetcar routes as being entirely Presto-ready and then, shortly thereafter, you set up a months-long bus replacement service without Presto.

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    Tried to transfer from the subway to the 506 car yesterday using Presto. I should have assumed the TTC would screw this up and that replacement buses wouldn't necessarily have Presto. I was refused boarding on the first bus. Re autoload, is there some trick I'm missing? I've repeatedly tried...

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    The hydro building is still there.

    Toronto | Leslie Barns | ?m | ?s | TTC | SAI

    As I believe was suggested earlier in the thread, the windows will make more sense once they raise the ground level in front of the wall (the "landscaping"). Also, it's not that they don't want you to see the building while you're jogging, but that the people who live nearby don't want to hear...
