    Toronto 11 YV | 213m | 62s | Metropia | Sweeny &Co

    Agreed. When it comes to massing this and the CG tower are the two best skyscrapers(150m+) going up in the GTA, despite the poor cladding its still a 'win' overall to me. However even with better cladding CG is not without it's own (minor)flaws either.

    You guys may be right, but it'll hardly matter in the end as it isn't a Chrysler Tower vs 40 Wall Street scenario, it's more of a Chrysler Tower vs the Empire State Building. It may lose the battle but ultimately it will win the war, that much has been decided. Chrysler may have been the first...

    Toronto 199 Church | 124.5m | 39s | CentreCourt | Arcadis

    That area has so much density now that it looks like it could be the downtown core of a smaller Canadian city in and of itself.

    Vaughan Festival Condominiums | ?m | 59s | Menkes | Arcadis

    How tall is this thing?! First time seeing this project and thread title just has the floor count, would it be Vaughan's new tallest?

    Love the Earthly tones of the limestone here, it's a welcome reprieve from the otherwise monotonous sea of blue, notwithstanding the high quality of the 4 seasons ofc.

    Toronto TD Terrace (160 Front St W) | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    Apparently not; The city only provides "guidance" in regards to architectural lighting, although I can definitely see that changing if more people start complaining about 'light pollution' going forward. It's only building signage that requires approval for now.

    Looked like the RailGun was targeting North York today

    Nice pavers, but how much longer do I have to wait before the city cuts some sexy black lines into them? 😏

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    What do the police have anything to do with it? A much closer comparable would be the TTC which gives employees 30 days not this pittance. That's all it is. It's interjecting an unnecessary layer into the process, for new hires it absolutely introduces a certain degree of coercion, even if that...

    Toronto Thorncliffe Park TOC: 26 Overlea Boulevard | 179.6m | 56s | Infrastructure ON | SvN

    Once upon a time it used to be baseball... but now public transit is the new; "Build it, and they will come."

    Same here. There is a general lack of buildings with setbacks in the city, especially ones that have a good symmetry in their design. And while I acknowledge the complaints about the quality of the facade, from a distance she sure cuts out a nice slender profile.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Never thought I'd hear the day when someone wanted more cameras - I mean have you seen Union Station lately? Place has more surveillance than Fort Knox. Anyhow, every station has cameras Long Branch included, take a look when exiting the stairwell they're mounted to its walls. But the coverage...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Yeah, apparently at last word they feel like revising service patterns will be sufficient to prevent it from being a choke point i.e Running Stouffville trips on the northern side of the Kingston corridor between the junction and Union.

    So highways are only worthwhile if they're congested messes? East Gardiner is one of the only portions of any highway in the city that actually isn't over capacity i.e. functions as intended, for a majority of the time. And it's not going to cost the city a single penny to maintain anymore.

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

    Hopefully somebody asked CP about this. CN/MX/OnCorr may not like it but none of them have the final say in the matter. Answered you own question - Both head end crew members on VIA trains are LE's. An LE understands the braking capabilities of a train regardless of his postion(or at least one...

    On another note... here's something you don't see everyday in Canada - video footage of that CN/EXO train crash in Montreal from last November: Gotta admit this much, Crash National doing a bang-up job of maintaining their reputation 👍
