    Toronto 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    I can see this thing from afar from my apartment and the green lighting is so so so so so sos so so os so so so so so so bad. total eyesore. it was nice when it was white lighting going from left to right or whatever. the greeen is just so bad ruins the skyline. SAD!

    Mississauga Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    and wherever single family zoning exists, the only economically viable project on these lots is to build a larger more expensive house in place of a smaller one. there often isn't the option to increase density at least until recently. believe me given the option to do so you'd see a lot more...

    FastLane: Gil Penalosa’s transit platform for Toronto

    i really think toronto needs its own version of select bus service in nyc. including bus lanes signal priority nicer stops the whole 9 yards. virtually every major arterial with a sufficiently wide row and a route in the 10 min network needs to be considered for this. it would cost peanuts...

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    My view on this is the same as on Finch West. I don't mind investing in enhancements to the local/surface network (not every line needs to be rapid transit), I mind spending billions to do such enhancements in the form of rail (when a bus can serve the same purpose), especially if it precludes...

    Toronto CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    love this building but it is quite dissapointing how difficult it can be to make out the diamond pattern at certain angles let along at night. they may as well not be there past dark. hopefully this can be fixed in the next few years.

    Mississauga Wesley Tower at Daniels City Centre | ?m | 43s | Daniels | Rafael + Bigauskas

    the area between confederation and duke of york isnt so bad. I think that due chiefly to the grid street pattern and relatively narrow streets. I can see that part accquiring an increasingly urban feel. but everything east of the mall is a mess for the time being.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    i think sheppard should go west even if it isnt dense. lots of logistical benefits to linking up the line to wilson yard, and if the line interlines with line 1 from sheppard west to finch west u have a transfer to the barrie line at downsview park and a transfer to line 6 so the crosstown...

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    i dont disagree but is slightly better access to adjacent parcels worth several billion dollerz?? I imagine most of the ridership at lawrence and ellesmere comes from bus transfers regardless of the location. let the intensification happen at Scarborough centre and build the line to connect to...

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    was extending BD along the stouffville line and then the SRT guideway never an option? i know the turning radius is not enough to accomodate the longer vehicles, but the cost of redoing that is so much lower than a wholeass underground subway even if it requires the expropriation of a property...

    Mississauga Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    is having 2 general purpose lanes in narrower sections really that bad? this arrangement is present for most of ions length. brampton has at least a few large parking lots downtown i dont see how paralell parking is so badly needed. im not nessecarily opposed to tunelling in that section but i...

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

    theres no way the shelters used on ion costed that much. if those were placed near the middle of the platform where the trains would couple that would encourage ppl to go into both cars as opposed to bunching in one

    Toronto Eglinton Line 5 Crosstown West Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    i think missisauga transitway conversion to lrt should happen sooner than later given how much development is proposed at square one. almost nothing along the corridor but the anticipated density at sq1 is enough to justify it if mississauga is not getting bloor danforth extension or milton like...

    Mississauga Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    if the lrt is to go beyond brampton go I would like to see it go up main the west vodden then north on the obry up to the southfield village in caledon. I imagine service on this portion would be infrequent and would mostly be used as a light commuter service to connect northern brampton to the...

    Mississauga Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    i actually quite like the stop spacing overall on this line, i find that most of the toronto lrts have unnessecary midblock stops. but kingsbridge/elia def justifies a stop, the eglinton stop should have been moved to the north side of eglinton.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    if any line should be immune to value-engineering, it is this one. i really wish we could save the lines that experiment with technology for the suburbs and just do what we know works for the relief line.

    Mississauga Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    missing link would be a far better investment for the western gta than any line 2 extension. since it now appears that it isn't happening I am open to a subway extension into mississauga but it would be such a shame tunneling right beside a rail corridor
