    I've heard of Starbucks and possibly a grocery store

    Toronto | Atrium on Bay Expansion | 82m | 19s | H&R REIT | P + S / IBI

    What I was actually told was that engineers have concluded that the existing foundation cannot support the proposed floor expansion. There seem to be a lot of well connected people and insiders on this site, can any of you confirm that? Asking because I have a unit at 633 Bay st with a south...

    Toronto | Atrium on Bay Expansion | 82m | 19s | H&R REIT | P + S / IBI

    I was told by a Horizon on Bay staff that the Atrium on Bay expansion will not proceed. Can anyone confirm that?

    Are you talking about the site plan for the four floors expansion or something else?

    It is not going forward? Yay!!! The floor extension would have Blocked the sun at Dundas Square starting at around 8:30pm during the summer. I hope you are right that it is not going forward

    ardwold1 is absolutely right. I have lived in Chicago for 8 years and in Toronto for 13 years, and I have been to Paris multiple times visiting family. So I know Chicago and Paris way beyond the glamour that these cities try to sell to tourists. And let me tell you...Toronto blow them all out of...

    Toronto | Ryerson Student Learning Centre | 51m | 8s | Ryerson University | Zeidler

    I do not know and neither do you. What I do know is that LED or not, the hydro expenses are far more than they would have been if the building was not illuminated. For god's sake, not even privately owned properties are that illuminated. And that's because they have to be mindful of their...

    Can I make a cheaper suggestion? How about installing security cameras instead? Or hire more security guards instead of wasting money on that building?

    There is wasteful spending and then there WASTEFUL SPENDING. Public art doesn't cost $122 million a pop; and neither do green spaces and streetscapes. This is to me a $30,000-umbrella like scandal on steroids.

    It may be...but a dollar spent to illuminate that building is a dollar too much. The illumination doesn't add any value other than making the building look sexy.

    Well..if you think that the health care system, the education system, and social services are very well funded then I guess you're right that all I am trying to do is advocate for higher pay for said providers. To me it doesn't matter how much the provincial government contributed, money was...

    True that it makes it look nice. But the outrageous hydro expenses to keep it illuminated would have been better redirected to spending that actually improve students' quality of education. As to your comment in regards to safety...Ryerson campus is not exactly know as a high crime area.

    Toronto | Ryerson Student Learning Centre | 51m | 8s | Ryerson University | Zeidler

    I didn't say that I wanted underground parking; the point I was trying to make by that comment was that this relatively small 8 story building cost $112 million (probably ended up costing more than that since this figure was just the budget) for no other reason other than the fact that Ryerson...

    Ok I'll give you the NPS argument; bad example of my part. It's a diversion from the point I have been trying to make which that I'd rather see my government invest $112 million on people, the city's, province's and country's most important resources, through better health care, education and...

    LOL. Why would I be? I own a condo just a couple of blocks from the SLC at Bay and Edward; so this building only helps my property value. I am just speaking from the point of view of an outraged citizen.

    Wow. I didn't expect such strong reaction from so many people. But with all due respect I stand with what I've said. I would compare what Ryerson did with the SLC and the Imaging Center to a politician who uses public funds to buy a $15 apple at a high-end hotel instead of buying a $1 apple at...

    Toronto | Ryerson Student Learning Centre | 51m | 8s | Ryerson University | Zeidler

    There is no arguing that both buildings are highly attractive and I would have perfectly been ok with it if they were privately funded buildings and Ryerson was a private institution. The issue is that they are publicly funded buildings and Ryerson is a public university, and we are in the age...

    Gorgeous building indeed! However, the excessive amount of money they spent to design and build such extravagant building could have been better spent on things that actually improve the quality of the education that Ryerson students receive. The same goes for the Imaging Centre which is in my...

    ROTFL @ “Thanks for remembering that thread Stupid” I know his alias is Stupidandshallow, but it’s still pretty funny. I guess that's what you get for using these types of aliases.
