    There really needs to be some kind of pedestrian connection to Liberty Village in this area.

    A bit off topic but strange that across the street from here (Sudbury St)

    Other than the existing pedestrian lights, they are instaling new traffic lights

    Makes me think maybe a future new overpass to Liberty Village...hahaha i wish....., or it would make more sense that this road (Douro Street) to nowhere, with an agreement between city and the the developer just might in the future be aligned with Sudbury street

    any news on this one? I noticed that there seemed to be a sales centre under contruction on google streetview, and googled the adress as I had never heard of the project. the imagry claims it was taken in july 2012, so the sales centre must be finished by now.

    Went by it tonight and has large letters saying Kingclub Condos, but not the first time it been used for other projects at the same time.

    Otherwise, the sign is up for the proposed development on the site.

    This is not the Kingsclub site. It's on the north side of King, west of the railway underpass. This site is on the south side of King, east of the underpass.

    I realize that, but I think what the others were trying to explain that this is the site of the sales office for kings club condos.

    The proposal for this site is a rather bland looking slab. Still haven't heard or seen anything about connecting any of the roads to Liberty Village. More wonderful foresight by the city *sigh*

    I'm not sure how you would connect the roads here to Liberty Village. Tunnel under the tracks? Where would that money come from?

    Yes, tunnel underneath. In an almost 10 billion dollar annual budget, the city seems to have plenty for key infrastructure projects. Despite this, they unfortunately don't seem to be in any rush make the exploding Liberty Village less isolated, which could be done by connecting a few key roads. It will only be more complicated and infuriating for residents once the area is built out.
