    Toronto Rogers Centre Renovations | ?m | ?s | Toronto Blue Jays | Populous

    I agree this is a real-estate play first and foremost. We must remember that Rogers does not own the land - just the building - so this is a play for them to be able to develop condos on the balance of the connected land they do not own. So my guess is nothing will happen to the Rogers Centre...

    Toronto Rogers Centre Renovations | ?m | ?s | Toronto Blue Jays | Populous

    They say it would be built "on the foundations" of the current structure. Perhaps they will build the "southern portion" of the stadium in the preceding time and then between seasons demo the southern part of Skydome and build the "outfield" section as the following season begins. That or...

    Toronto Rogers Centre Renovations | ?m | ?s | Toronto Blue Jays | Populous

    I have long thought they should restructure the seating tiers as to resemble a Fenway or Wrigley layout - tight and intimate. The same treatment could be made for the Big Owe. For Rogers - it is now Baseball Only so they should be able to do a hell of a makeover on the inside. You will never...

    What was the route for the old Zoo train? Maybe they roughed that in for expansion or it went to the old train garage?

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Why is it that every media outlet is reporting this straight except for CP24 that is reporting that Renata is In custody for "suspected" driving while impaired and used the quote by Spokesman Kwong that Renata "has alcohol in her blood"? The posting ends that she is "facing a charge". - I mean...

    Shipping Container Architecture in Toronto

    Shipping container are a specific type of steel - CORTEN - it is designed to maintain its strength while weathering/rusting and the energy/resources required to recycle the steel into a reusable element would be ridiculous. They make a great platform for application re-use after circling the...

    Colourful characters from the past

    Who else has seen the skateboarding Spiderman. Not sure if he's the same as one of the posers at YDS but he often flies by whooping "Yahoo!". I was out on Yonge Street yessterday and heard the same "Yahoo!" and saw a younger man on a skatboard heading southbound at a good clip - made me wonder...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Ford is just now on CP24 - he looks like he's on something again. Babbling, rocking back and forth spewing the same old "I know better crap". Comments on Norm Kelly's dinners calling it "the Gravy Train" which is rich coming from him after treating City Hall like his playpen. No retraction or...

    267 College Street / SE Corner Spadina & College

    The Burger King building I believe is currently privately held but this does not mean U ot T doesn't hold an option on it - would make sense.

    Natural Grass in the Rogers Centre/Possibility of a New Baseball Stadium in Toronto

    MLSE wants to own the Argos without having to pay for them - that IS the deal. Similar way Rogers bought the Skydome. "We are the only game in town that can SAVE this situation". Just watch...
