    Search function

    I have found recently on more than one occasion that the "Search" function does not seem to be working very well. Yesterday I started a new thread in Projects and construction regarding a new development, not having found an existing thread. I was promptly corrected by someone pointing out...

    Toronto | Blue Diamond Condos and Foxbar Towns at Imperial Village | 88.08m | 28s | Camrost-Felcorp | Diamond Schmitt

    The former Deer Park United Church property at 129 St. Clair Ave. West (SE corner of Foxbar Road) has been sold. The handsome-looking old stone church is (I think) designated. This may be a potential conversion of the existing building rather than a completely new structure. The price paid...

    129 St. Clair Avenue West

    A member posted something about this possible redevelopment, which I had frankly forgotten about. His post is a possible starting point for discussion, perhaps specifically about this property, or perhaps more generally about the reuse of old church properties etc. I think it fits the mandate...

    What happened to the big bamboo trees?

    ... in the CCBR building at U of T. Walking along College Street, I impulsively decided to venture into this building, and the nice large bamboo trees that were in the lobby are now nothing but a rather scraggly "ground cover" type of planting. Anyone at U of T know what happened?

    Garbage containers on subway platforms

    I haven't seen it mentioned here, so I'll put this into a new thread. It looks like the TTC has finally decided to put garbage containers back into the subway stations at platform level. On my trip downtown today it appeared that each station from Kipling east to (I think) Keele had them...
