I don't think I saw this image before...


Yeah, that one's been in some city docs, but there are some interesting elements in there (still too much hardscaping and not enough flair for my liking, acknowledging it's mostly a visioning exercise at this point).

I really do hope they drop the Gardiner east of Jarvis. The downtown portion, I understand why there is a debate about keeping it - but the portion east of Jarvis could easily come down and would be a huge improvement.

I can't make up mind in that regards. A sprawling boulevard is more visually appealing however, it doesn't improve on the pedestrian experience. In fact, it may be worse.

Would specific beautified pedestrian connections at Trinity and Cherry make up for the pedestrian experience with a boulevard?

I don't know if people should really be walking along Lake Shore to begin with. Queens Quay will be superior for that, and emphasis should be with connecting pedestrians across the rail corridor/gardiner to Queens Quay.

I actually think that makes it a better case for Toronto since they are willing to employ that many more in Canada. Also, Vancouver isn't in the running so my personal opinion is that these jobs wouldn't be located in the HQ buildings anyway. (New or Old).

Just my thoughts.
Cheers,
I agree, if anything its good for Toronto's chance to land HQ2
