yes. we should wait. chicago and new york didn't become great cities over the same amount of time it will take the bloor street revitalization to finish.
i'm just saying, don't criticize an unfinished product and don't compare it to unrelated projects.
for example, it's unfair to compare our public spaces like university avenue to paris' champs-d'elysees. sure paris' public spaces are bigger and more beautiful...but they were also conceived and constructed under tyrannical monarchs. every space must be judged based on its aesthetics as well as its political and historical context. and considering this is toronto, we should be happy this project was even realized.
I agree we should wait, however, the Magnificent Mile comparision is very valid since the design team didn't hide the fact that the Chicago street was their main inspiration.
By the way, just for fun, check out the picture galleries. They are an eye opener that shows that Bloor Street will never be on that level. Period.
