    Why Montreal rental rates are so lower than rest of the nation?

    Montreal/Quebec's regulatory environment definitely doesn't disincentives creating new rental stock. If anything, it's the opposite. Throughout the last two decades, there has consistently been more rentals built in the Greater Montreal Area compared to any other city in Canada, and possibly...

    Mississauga - Future Skyline [SketchUp Rendering]

    It's been while since I've had an update! Once again, I have been relatively busy with school since the new year. However, I have been able to find a bit of time to work on this project. I have added the 91 Eglinton development, with my model based off of the site plan that was posted not too...

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    I'll agree that your mockup is better, but what it's still missing is real clarity on which boxes apply to which direction, in other words, where's the break? The whole BG is black, including the framing. How about a heavy white vertical line all the way from top to bottom to clearly show...

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Here's a bog simple way to at least help, and no map, no smartphone needed: what a little bit of hierarchy can do. Arrows, referencing a group in terms of where to find them. What a concept...Now to replace those mostly meaningless icons with terms like "Regional Rail""Washrooms""Airport...

    Transit Ridership Statistics & Tracking

    It would be a nice touch to have two circles, a darker one to show the previous ridership level, and a lighter halo that shows the increase around it. So wouldnt just compare ridership levels between stations, but how much if any, it increased. Maybe a red circle inside the dark circle if it...

    Transit Ridership Statistics & Tracking

    Oh my god, that is hilarious. Alright, I love the cartographic expression of the GO lines as much as anyone, but they are impractical from a data visualization perspective. And so... I have edited the Metrolinx PDF to make this: I have half the mind to swap the circle sizes with something...

    Have a look at the drawing posted by Chester. It's as easy as taking the elevator up, and walking down the hall. Is this really any different than a regular building? Seems to me if you took the elevator to one of these upper floors, you would have no idea you were on a cantilevered floor...

    GO Transit Electrification (Metrolinx, Proposed)

    A bunch of random (rare) tornados took out the main transmission lines between the state's mid-north and Adelaide - that's actually what took SA off-line after the interconnect with Victoria was suddenly overloaded (and shut down as a safety precaution, doing what it's supposed to do in that...

    Apple Store

    I have further pieces of information. Apple negotiated aesthetic rights to the common area in front of their store. What this means is that Apple can install their tree planters and trees in front of the store rather than Eaton Centre’s plantings and furnishes. Second: Apple’s new ground...

    202-208 St. Clair Avenue West (Altree, 9s, Graziani + Corazza Architects)

    Realnet reporting that Altree Developments have bought this site. From looking at the Altree website - it looks like they partner with Marlin Spring quite a bit. Edit: A google suggests Altree is owned by a co-founder of Marlin Springs -...
