    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    The solution is to run trains, not buses. This is a self-inflicted wound.

    Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Province of Ontario | Zeidler

    Wait, I thought the monorail was the attraction and the ferris wheel was the rapid transit!?

    'Fare Free Transit'? Will it work in the GTHA

    The latest episode of the Freakonomics podcast is on this topic: https://www.stitcher.com/show/freakonomics-radio/episode/513-should-public-transit-be-free-206089212 I'm for this concept but it has suffered from branding. Transit, of course, isn't free. The idea is to transition the...

    That's sort of an oxymoron. :) Beams are horizontal, posts are vertical. If the OP is talking about the yellow posts, then yes those are temporary. Everything else is staying. The angular steel being neither vertical or horizontal I would refer to as hangers.

    A few pages back, someone posted those white walls belonged in a washroom. I'm thinking, yeah, I could pee on that.

    Toronto | Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    Just speculating, but with the change of developer, time delay and design changes, perhaps it was Gehry that removed his name.

    I thought they would have done the diagonals and corner fill-ins at this point and the floor they're forming now would be another "full floor". Apparently not. Maybe the corners will be a trailing activity all the way up?

    The link visually shows the ILS and RNAV (GPS) approaches for Billy Bishop: https://www.navcanada.ca/en/publicnoticeytz-billy-bishop-instumentprocedureupdatesfinal.pdf ILS 26 approach is the pertinent one. ILS will typically work plus/minus 3 degrees laterally on either side of the signal...

    The approach path for Billy Bishop limits buildings in most of the portlands to 25 storeys. This surrendered tax base is yet another reason to get rid of BB.

    GO Transit: Union Station Shed Replacement & Track Upgrades (Zeidler)

    @GOExpansion looks like a bot to me and the others are in a Turing test.

    Toronto | GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    The EPR is good source for those wondering what is being built: http://www.metrolinx.com/en/regionalplanning/rer/davenport/epr/Davenport_Diamond_EPR_Main_Report.pdf Sequence of construction begins on pdf page 62. It reads to me that the left and right side boxes are craned up separately and...

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    Building bridges in situ is messy business too involving cranes, support roads and staging areas. But we shall see. Given this city's "transit last" strategy, I will say in about 20 years.

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    Drum, I agree that the sequencing WT and the city have forced themselves into will cost more in the end but the installation is doable: Yellow LRT bridge: Use the river as a tool. 1) Barge under the yellow road bridge, lift it up and float it out of the way. This may require removing the...

    When do they take the white protective coating off? 🤔 What? That's the final product! 😭

    Those seem smaller than expected and completely inside the glass envelope. I guess the hangers viewed from outside will be faux.
