…Who has both a credibility problem (see Rob Ford’s imminent arrest) as well as having sworn that pretty much every large retail vacancy in the Eaton Centre over the past three years was going to be filled by Apple. Just a couple of weeks ago he was claiming 2 Queen was gonna be Apple.
1. It’s easy to revise history to fit your claims. While things definitely got chaotic near the end and unreliable information made it through, my record of breaking news early in the Rob Ford saga, short of me being psychic, were verified as coming from people inside Ford’s office. When they left, as I cautioned in the thread at the time, reliable information became more difficult to come by and I shared an educated analysis, not claims.…Who has both a credibility problem (see Rob Ford’s imminent arrest) as well as having sworn that pretty much every large retail vacancy in the Eaton Centre over the past three years was going to be filled by Apple.

ETA: he seems to relish in being a supplier of information (see the comments section of that Macrumours post), regardless of its dubious—or downright false—provenance.
1. You don’t seem to understand the difference between discussing of ideas and speculation on a topic (which is what people do in forums) and reporting on news sources verified by other parties (Retail Insider and MacRumors), then I’m not sure you’re qualified to tie your own shoelaces.1. There were *months* of “chatter” of his imminent arrest. Who’s revising history here? Why do you think you were all but driven out of that thread?
2. And before, it was the corner of Yonge & Dundas. You’ve gone so far as to make mockups of floorplans with the Apple logo.
3. You use words like “verified”. Nothing has been verified. The article even says CF and Apple have refused to comment. You might want to think before posting. You have a vast tendency to act as though things are sure and set in stone with as much as the loosest of rumours. Whether your info is correct or not doesn’t discount the zeal you have in being the communicator of that info. And that’s the issue here. If you had any of *this* info two weeks ago, you’d not have been posting what you did re: 2 Queen.
In two weeks you’ve talked to a few people and run to tell MacRumors. Any proof, or just word of mouth? Floorplans? Blueprints? Construction contracts? Keep gunning for that Pulitzer, Pedro. I’m sure it’s “imminent”.
Well, hold your horses there. Nothing about the Museum of Toronto has been confirmed, as nice of an idea it is.opening the mall onto what’ll essentially be a public square next to the future Museum of Toronto.
Whatever Old City Hall becomes, James Street will play a role. The street exists to service the courts. No dead end streets are allowed.Well, hold your horses there. Nothing about the Museum of Toronto has been confirmed, as nice of an idea it is.
However, if all the pieces fall into place, lower James Street will be lovely.
I don't really care an iota for Apple, but if they pull off a revitalization of this back street, they will be fully deserving of praise. I cannot see any reason to oppose pedestrianizing James Street between Queen and Albert. All the loading and servicing takes place in between Albert and Trinity Square.
