There's the non-trivial issue of that bridge terminating at grade with the southbound DVP lanes. I would like to see some interesting repurposing of that bridge though, even if it isn't practical as a crossing point.
Knowing the city, they'll probably put a crosswalk across the DVP and let the pedestrians play frogger.

There was a Star article a week or two ago where it said they planned to use an existing bridge to connect East Harbour to Corktown, so I can only imagine this was the bridge they were referring to. I have no real info on that, though

Guess where new noise complaints about the Major League Soccer, Toronto Indy, CNE, air show, etc., will come from?

i find that news release interesting as in the webinars the OL planners were definitely not aware of this as they specifically said "they dont have plans" for buildings above the king/bathurst and spdaina/queen stations

maybe because metrolinx isnt involved at all with the TOD plans?

Nice render - cars seem to have exclusive use of the bike lane and the cyclist is banished to the main road with regular traffic.



The guy in the online meeting said it would be the site of a substation.
Because Spadina doesn’t have bike lanes and that is actually curb side parking.

Fair, if that's the case. In the render it looks like it's dedicated driving lane as the little/median looks raised it's entire length with no no markings indicating parking.

It's indeed exciting to see some new station renderings. I would like to see better integration with the historic structure at the base, though I realize that may be challenging with these particular buildings.

New condos built after 2011 downtown have strict noise abatement rules, including triple pane windows. Hopefully wont be an issue and its ludicrous that it took until 2011 for such rules to exist.

Article in the Star today but it's probably behind a paywall (you might be able to view it if they allow you to view one free article per month or something):
