    Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) | ?m | 1s | TTC | IBI Group

    Are you sure that there isn't a tunnel, but that it is reserved for the use of York's upper administration who are located above the Archieves in Kanieff Tower?

    It would be cool to see a Museum/Centre of the Moving Image built around the Cinesphere. It would incorporate the history of cinema and space to develop new techniques/technologies for the film and animation industry. It would be neat to have a specialist High School exposing kids to the whole...

    The Toronto Tree Thread

    There are a lot of great ideas in the report. Beautiful pictures. What it lacks is any of the very many geese that will move in.

    The Junction

    Surely there will be a significant amount of truck traffic associated with a plant like this, but that isn't mentioned in the piece. Neither Rockcliffe Blyd. (with the school) nor Alliance is a great access route. Doesn't St. Helen's currently have a plant near The Stockyards mall. Are they...

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    But no-one actually CALLS LlanfairPG (or Llanfairpwl) by its full name in the absence of a tourist.

    Shoppers Drug Mart

    How can a Shopper's pull in enough to pay $2.3 million in rent and taxes? There is THAT much money in the dispensing business?

    Bishop Morocco school is a complication to development on the south side of Bloor. The building and land actually belong to the TDSB, but is rented to the TCDSB for a $1 per year on a 99 year lease. I can't see either school board being willing to break that lease and make the land available for...

    Why not make deliveries and pick up by bike as they do in London, NYC and many other congested cities?

    The "School District" question

    With the greatest of respect Admiral you have written about changes in catchment areas as if they frequently affect households and there is nothing parents can do to participate in the process. Catchment areas are actually remarkably stable compared to other cities. In order to make a change...

    The "School District" question

    Many families chose Garden over Howard or Fern and pay a whopping premium. Families like the one pictured in The Star article don't have anything to fear until the end of Gr. 6 as they will be grandfathered at Garden. HOWEVER, (and the TDSB staff reps will be evasive on this point!) the kids in...

    The "School District" question

    It simply isn't true in our area that school is a proxy for SES/race etc. You can guess from my username where I live. The entire area is populated by pretty successful, professional, educated english-1st language caucasian folks. However, people in the area know exactly where the boundaries...

    The "School District" question

    As part of the city planning process, the school boards are asked to respond with any comments. I am only familiar with Ward 7 (High Park/Roncesvalles/Swansea/Bloor West/Parkdale) where almost all of the schools are at or already significantly over capacity. Every planning proposal report...

    The "School District" question

    All of the students at the schools you list would have equal access to the French program at Adam Beck because Adam Beck is currently their designated school for that French program. If the program is over-subscribed, applicants with a sibling in a FI program at Adam Beck would have priority for...

    Yet again: Developer posts fictional renders prs-sales everyone goes "ooooh that looks so great" then the developer throws up some hulking ugly block of greyness Everyone is disappointed The building in the render was not to my personal taste, but I do wish there was some way to make...
