    Toronto Concord Sky | 299m | 85s | Concord Adex | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    Is there actually any kind of penalty for this? Because right now it seems like Concord could care less, which wouldnt be surprising considering the gutter trash developer that they are.

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    Only a decade? Lol this thing wont be built until at least 2040 at the earliest. Until the day the Waterfront East LRT is built, this project wont be smelling the light of day. It's going to need a brand new MSF and brand new vehicles, both of which will end up costing close to $1 billion...

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    After ~10pm all 501 cars run the full length to Long Branch Loop. Some 504 cars run to Humber while others go to Dundas West station.

    TTC: Electric and alternative fuel buses

    Very interesting takeaways, nice link @APTA-2048. In my eyes the less NovaBus around the better, frankly their bus design is problematic (and that's me being kind). I'd be more than happy if another manufacturer came in to replace them and fills their voids. As i've noted before, the only way...

    Toronto The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    Oh dont you worry, that's coming this summer i'm sure. The city is going to be hacking up the York St ramp of the Gardiner this summer, so i'm sure they'll find a way to magically hack up Love Park for "related work".

    Toronto The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    I mean, why do we even bother doing nice things like this when they just get hacked up 3 months later. This city will never cease to amaze.

    Toronto Silver Hill Public School | ?m | 3s | TDSB | Snyder

    The design of this school is laughable. If they're trying to go for the modern day prison look they're doing a really damn good job of that. And the fact that they're reserving space for "future portables" is actually downright shameful and embarrassing. Is this what our education system has...

    Hamilton Westgate on Main | ?m | 8s | Matrix Development Group | HB Design

    So this is what we're calling "urban oasis" now huh? Wow.

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway catch-all, incl. Hybrid Design (2015-onwards)

    If you've seen how the TTC operates streetcars along Spadina, St.Clair or the Waterfront, you'll know that they're incapable at moving people along with any kind of efficiency whatsoever. Unfortunately I cant put up a video here of how slow streetcars can move through these ROWs, because I have...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Very fair point, when we go into the technicalities of that case I guess we cant put 100% of the blame of that particular issue on him. However, wasnt there a bunch of maintenance equipment that the TTC was looking to acquire but the decision to acquire the equipment has been delayed/spread out...

    Roads: Traffic Signals

    Well i've seen the city and TTC go ahead and remove stops that are far more useful and used by far more patrons than the Ridgevalley Crescent stop. So in this particular case, sure they could go ahead. The ~30 people who use it daily would be upset but so be it. And if it's the case where the...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Honestly after today's cluster***** clown show, I dont see how Rick Leary can or should continue as TTC CEO. The number of safety incidents which have happened under his watch, not even talking about general service degradation and non existent line management, has gotten out of hand. Let's...

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    One thing i've been thinking about recently is how overloaded to surface stops will get in the future once development settles in on the eastern portion of the line. Stops like Wynford are side platforms and they are due to see massive amount of development around it. So while the underground...

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

    I'm going to go and say 4 more decades, but feel free to prove me wrong politicians of Toronto.

    Blue Jays

    Let's not even talk about the Moreno/Gurriel trade. Such a great thing we have an idiot for a GM.

    Roads: Traffic Signals

    Thanks for digging up the report on this one. Make no mistake the distance between pedestrian crossings is long here, but at the same time this is also a bus stop that's virtually never used. I mean frankly i'd even go as far as saying it's borderline useless due to the very light use and the...

    Toronto Verge Condominiums | 60.3m | 17s | RioCan Living | Turner Fleischer

    Checked out this site for the first time in a while today. Cladding looks semi-decent, nothing to write home about but it's better than anything we'll see from Marlin Spring in the area. Eastern tower: Western Tower:

    Blue Jays

    I take it you dont like this trade the Blue Jays did a few years back?? It's just another one of the amazing acquisitions made by the clown Ross Atkins. Between JP Ricciardi and Atkins I honestly dont...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    The thing is, all it takes is a 5 minute read from the TTC's own service summary to deduce that what they did with service was a grand reallocation scheme and had the board/mayor looked it through they would've seen that something is fishy. I myself didnt need to do an extreme deep dive to...
