I guess we should just keep stuffing condos into Humber Bay Shores until the area breaks then.

On a serious note, isn't that what the development charges are for? To build the hard services and related infrastructure necessary to support the increased density? The major infrastructure piece (Eglinton Crosstown) is already nearly in place.
Speaking of Humber Bay Shores, we all one day hope an Waterfront West LRT, an express ferry and a GO Station could all exist in that area, to allow more convient ways to travel to support increased population. On Eglinton, this will as you said be a major step, for increased population and options to commute

Crossing my fingers that the city will pursue Waterfront LRT now that they're 'off the hook' for a few transit projects (Eglinton West, Ontario line).

This is about the corner of keele and Eglinton where the school and York centre is. I suggested ripping the whole place down and starting over.
Why does everything need to be highrise? Why not some of the "missing middle" that Toronto lacks?


Developers do the missing middle thing near Royal York on bloor, on avenue road where they can get more money per square foot. Or on st Claire west of the immediate subway area. Maybe between the underground stations on Eglinton we will see the missing middle. This is a huge site right on top of a under ground lrt stop. Look it up and across from the Weston road lrt stop where the grocery store is that too is slated for high rise. The church on the corner of Weston and Eglinton is slated for high rise.

Julian, Mayan or Gregorian calendars?
Metrolinx will pull a move by Julius Caesar by reforming the calendar and inserting a few months to the year and will finish on time by September 2021 on the Metrolinxian Calendar.

Conversion between Metrolinxian and Gregorian calendar has yet to be revealed by ML.

If the businesses are renters not owners the rent is going to go up and be the final death nail. Either way at Bathurst and st clair there was a ton of business turn over when the streetcar row was under construction and the area got more density through new condos. At least in my opinion the st Claire area is much better. It used to have adult stores, a porn store, a thrift store, now there's Starbucks and big box restaurants. Well it's cleaner and safer. It's debatable if it's better based on if you need physical porn or not.
