I personally think that this is not designed for people who go to downtown to work. You are lucky if you can get to downtown in 1.5h. It took me roughly 1.5h in the morning, but sometimes 2 h in the afternoon for communing....To get downtown from this intersection on public transit still takes a very uncomfortable 1.5 hours. The Warden bus is basically non-existent. It is far from a connected, desirable neighbourhood........
I went to the sales office on the weekend.Today, when I pass by warden ave, I see all the celebration sign are replaced by Love condos.
I wonder are the sale for High Power almost over so they allow Love condo to take over their sign locations.
If you lived at Warden & Finch, you'd know that never in your life has it taken you 1.5 hours to get downtown unless the subway is shut down for some emergency, you're doing so via the night buses, or you're taking the Warden bus - which locals know sucks for getting downtown.Trust me, as someone who grew up in this area, no one looks forward to riding on the Finch bus. To get downtown from this intersection on public transit still takes a very uncomfortable 1.5 hours. The Warden bus is basically non-existent. It is far from a connected, desirable neighbourhood.
If we're putting mid-rise into Corktown and Mount Pleasant, why would we be building high-rise at Finch and Warden? I'm all for urbanizing Scarborough, but this is not the way. This is the way for a developer to take advantage of the precedent set by the 70's high-rises, to throw in a few more on cheap land.
This is the kind of neighbourhood that epitomizes the "vertical poverty" phenomenon in Toronto, and we're letting developers continue to build this way: islands of small unit high-rise in a sea of suburban sprawl, free of any amenities.
