    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    I don't have solutions. What I can say is that my cohort of friends and I are feeling crushed by the state of the housing market. Housing 50km in any direction is beyond any reasonable sense of affordability. It's created a sense of deep resentment, and even depression in many I know. It's...

    Toronto Allure | 139.5m | 43s | Emblem Developments | Arcadis

    Fair. Perhaps then we need to mandate ratio of units in a building. 50% 1 bed, 30% 2 bed, 20% 3 bed as an example. I don't have a perfect solution, but it feels as though something creative thinking is required. A future of ~850 sq feet 3 bedrooms units can't be it.

    I know this should probably go in the other thread for the building but I saw the posted units and its 846 sq feet for a 3 bedroom. I actually laughed. Why we don't mandate sq ft minimums is beyond me.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    We seem to struggle with the idea that some people don’t belong in everyday society and need care and institutionalization.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    We should totally take years to study the problem as many other innocent citizens are stabbed to death. That'll show them!

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Thanks for the link. I didn't scroll back to the previous page. However, I do consider it coddling. We are letting people get murdered on the biggest public transit system in Canada. I understand that you disagree with that and that's fair enough.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2023/03/26/man-dead-following-saturday-night-stabbing-at-keele-subway-station.html A 16 year old boy was murdered by an homeless man over the weekend. Another young victim claimed by our coddling of the homeless and mentally ill. May he rest in peace.

    Zoning Reform Ideas

    https://www.thestar.com/2023/toronto-housing-zoning.html Screenshot from the article. Nothing we don't already know but I'm happy to see major papers write more about the subject. Hopefully it encourages citizens to appreciate that we need to re-zone and build up much of the city.

    Yum, look at all that single family housing we can bulldoze.

    HP's treatment of the corner is definitely fantastic and reminds me a bit of the Canadian Opera Company building in that you can "peer" inside. However, all the glass does make this feel like another "Toronto" building. Sadly the city already has too much glass everywhere, in particular in the...

    We should all meet up in an alleyway and settle this once and for all. West side story anyone? Agreed. Let's stop with the ageism and let's also be more tolerant. Healthy discussion commence!

    Probably not the right thread to post this on but never stop posting. You write some of the most insightful things on here even if we disagree on tone once or twice :P

    Ouch this is rough. Strongly agreed that this connection type is combersome to put it lightly.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    I agree. It's fair to be a little animated over transit discussion. Have people never been in a debate? Most of the discussion has not been personal attacks but rather strong disagreements which are healthy (in my eyes at least). No reason to call people disrespectful. @Northern Light, do try...

    Even though I didn't make most of those posts i'll comment. They're cringe on purpose. They're written that way to highlight the insanity that is protection of a handful of trees in the city. We need transit, we need a lot of it, we need to start on it today. If you look at cities that the...

    Did you read the bit right before this? I wrote "I'd destroy every single family home in the city and build elevated automated rail everywhere. But nope, let's protect old white homeowners lol". It might help to read the post in full. Obviously that is not about Osgoode Hall specifically.

    This is the kind of Toronto Mans energy we need in this city..... or should I say pragmatism.

    It's exhausting honestly. We get it, Toronto isn't like it was in the 1980s. It's a new generation and we need to cut down a few trees to build transit in our city. It's pretty wild how we're even debating this. It's a good thing I'm not "king" of Toronto. I'd destroy every single family home...

    Slowing down construction of crucial transit that serves the needs of millions of torontonians because of trees will never stop being funny. Cut the trees and get to work. I love nature but I’ll be first in line to clear cut these trees myself. Once the site is done, we can plant 2-3 times the...
