    Toronto | Crosstown LRT: Kennedy Station | ?m | 1s | Metrolinx | IBI Group

    An interesting comparison is the very narrow lanes on the gardiner, especially eastbound past Jarvis. There's a natural slowing of traffic there, because the lanes are just barely wider than a car. Yet somehow everyone seems to make it OK. Time to get new firetrucks?

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT: Kennedy Station | ?m | 1s | Metrolinx | IBI Group

    As a Euro-import, I've always found lanes in Canada to be crazy wide. They are much narrower pretty much everywhere outside of North America. There's definitely room to narrow lanes somewhat without compromising safety, especially on nominally 50km/h roads.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    Ahhh... thanks for the replies. Hopefully this gets resolved soon. I commute to Hamilton 2-3x a week and this week it's been a nightmare coming back in the evenings.

    Eglinton West LRT | Metrolinx

    2030+ completion date? Good lord. I haven't kept up with this project very much and didn't realize it is mostly buried. Here I was thinking that in a couple of years, I'll roll my carry-on to Leaside station and read a book all the way to Pearson...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    Speaking of the QEW, what's happening on the 403/QEW interchange that's backing up traffic eastbound so terribly recently? It's the 403 ramps causing the issues for sure, because traffic is dead stopped on them and it is backing up all the way down to the QEW. I couldn't find anything specific...

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    it's actually moving along fairly well, now. The ground floor is an incredibly complex piece of engineering. It will pick up once they get into the repeating floor patterns, since the floor plate isn't that big here.

    11 Pleasant Blvd (e of Yonge, Plaza, 15s?, ?)

    Absolutely. Having just a convenience store with a big parking pad in front so close to a subway station is a complete waste of space. I really hope something comes from this. Nice-looking project in its current iteration.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT: Mount Pleasant Station | ?m | 1s | Metrolinx | NORR

    The original opening date for this project was supposed to be this last September, yet they just finished pouring the station box here. This station can't be closer than 18 months from completion.

    Leaside Village Shopping Centre Expansion (First Capital, 2s, Scoler Lee & Associates Architects)

    Is the Shoppers from the Bayview main street area moving here? I'm assuming they won't keep both Shoppers on Bayview (the other one is just north of Broadway), and open this one in addition.

    Konzulat Towns (377 Spadina Rd @ Montclair, RAJACan, 3s, Richard Wengle)

    Fascinating bit about the former Yugoslavian consulate, being a former Yugoslavian myself. I wonder if this building turned into the Republic of Serbia consulate later. It was definitely in the same area. I know because I had to go pay them a visit and ask if they'll arrest me at the airport on...

    I sure hope the tremendous amount of metal they extracted from this site gets recycled properly. Anyone know where it ends up?

    Toronto | Bayview & Hillsdale | 28.95m | 7s | The Brown Group | Kohn

    That's good news about Maker Pizza. I was dreading the typical "drycleaner, bank, Starbucks" line-up. It's sad how decimated Bayview retail has become in the last year or so. Rents have gone ballistic, apparently.

    Toronto | 815 Eglinton Avenue East | 114.70m | 34s | RioCan | Quadrangle

    I live a couple of blocks from this development. I'm not sure why a new elementary school has not been made a part of this or neighbouring new developments. Local schools are maxed out. I don't have an issue with the development, because this land needs densification, but there's definitely some...

    Is that De La Salle High School in the foreground of the first pic, Ottawan?

    Don't see a lot of progress since the Oct 12 picture. Must be moving along very slowly.

    Thanks for the reply. What's the estimated completion time of all the work?

    Roads: Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Highway 410 (MTO, U/C, Planned)

    I'm confused, there's been construction going on in this section of the 401 for a while now, why is the newsrelease saying "construction begins"? Some sections look almost finished in concrete.

    Toronto | 1 Yorkville | 183.18m | 58s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli

    Up close, the materials aren't impressive. From a distance, the fins blend into the rest of the cladding. Therefore, this building should only be viewed from mid-distance, preferable at sunrise or sunset.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I use GoogleMaps on my Android Auto regularly, but always back-check with reality. If something doesn't make sense, I rely on my intuition. It has saved my ass many times. It tends to pick the easiest route, even through heavy traffic, and sometimes one-way streets are not programmed correctly...
