Both towers are making themselves known as the start to fill the skyline from many locations now. Can be seen from the 403 heading east at Erin Mills as well south on Hurontario and Mavis
Development occurred at different in each place though, so the style of building and planning reflects the thinking of the time in each case, and therefore the cities evolved differently… and certainly, Toronto did not build its downtown on greenfields to the north of urbanized land. There simply is next to no equivalency here,But so was Toronto, or any typical city, outside downtown.
Yep. You could reduce many streets to four lanes, and nice wide sidewalks, proper bike paths with protected intersections, and serious street trees.The wide suburban-style streets are bad now, but are a blessing in disguise. In the future, you could have massive sidewalks, great bike infrastructure and transit lanes. The bones are there, you just need political will.
