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

    I passed by Wvrst last night at around 7:30 and it was packed, with maybe ten people waiting outside.

    Future of the Hearn Generating Station

    If we're lucky they'll hold on to the site for a couple of decades and do something similar to London's Battersea Power Station. ... but I wouldn't bet on it.

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

    I just got back from a two-week vacation in Scandinavia. Seeing the architectural quality in Copenhagen and Oslo's newer waterfront neighbourhoods, and comparing it to what we've gotten in Toronto thus far, I just wanted to cry.

    I'm happy we'll be able to see it up close soon, I only saw it as a blur from the window of a London cab a couple of years ago

    Oh, how unfortunate for the developers! Another victim of the mysterious old building arsonist. This bullsh*t has got to stop, it makes me so mad.

    Car2Go Illegal Parking - Solutions?

    OK, you park your car outside your home. How about I store some boxes outside mine, roughly the combined size of a car. Or install some patio furniture. It's the same, I guess?

    Toronto | 49 Spadina Avenue | 89m | 20s | PPG | Sweeny &Co

    Thank you for the link! I've worked twice in this building (2nd and 4th floor) and I never knew the history of the site.

    Toronto | 280 Jarvis Street | 86m | 25s | Giannone Petricone

    A couple of years ago, I was walking outside of Hooker Harvey's and I noticed some broken dishes on the ground. As I kneeled to take a photo, one of the ladies who frequent the place came near, walked on the plates, and in a very deep voice said: "You're welcome, honey".

    Toronto | Berczy Park Revitalization | ?m | ?s

    It sounds to me your first concern is not homelessness, but homeless people in the neighbourhood. Also, what's wrong with paying more taxes for social housing and homelessness programs?

    Car2Go Illegal Parking - Solutions?

    It's not illegal to park on residential streets without a permit up to 3 hours, and Car2Go has a system to try to avoid going over that as much as possible. I insist, anger is making you read too fast. From Metro.ca...

    Car2Go Illegal Parking - Solutions?

    Admiral Beez, I think you're misunderstanding Car2go's policy. They don't condone parking where and when it is explicitly illegal, only where 3-hour on-street parking is allowed. What they do is they monitor parked cars, and if one stays at the same spot for close to 3 hours they will send a...

    Indeed. I already went for my first walk. Lots of people taking photos.

    Toronto | Pan Am Village in the West Don Lands | ?m | ?s | DundeeKilmer | KPMB

    From my window it looks like they have removed the fences and cones they had installed to stop vehicular traffic today, and I see joggers and people walking their dogs on the sidewalks, so it would seem it's already open to the public.

    I just walked past this site, and they've started removing the Canary District canvas signs from the fences.
