Kinda like Traverso @ Lawrence/Dufferin? I love the idea of a deep, inset balcony but not sure how useful they'd be daylight-wise. Plus, I think the indoor living space is more valuable in this case than a blacony.
Plus doesn't this TCHC have a rooftop patio on the podiums? Plus there's 'Canoe' (Crap) Park.
If you're going to call a park 'crap', some justification would be appropriate. What is it about Canoe landing that is so crappy? I am really curious because I think its a great public space.
Do you guys realize the Beaver Pond/fountain has not worked all summer? I don't know if it's broken or if they just turned it off but it has not worked all summer.
I went down to see the park for myself also, and I also felt that it just falls flat. And yes it does feel as though it is already showing signs of neglect.
I took a walk through about a week ago and it seemed fine to me.
The rust on the 'candy sculptors' were really the same as they looked over a year ago to me i.e. they haven't gotten any worse.
Where the park falls flat is plantings, there's very little in the way of that. Also some more maintenance would be ideal.
But I don't really see signs of neglect in the sense that when the park opened it looked very much like it does today (or last week, when I did the walk).
The CityPlace haters are so tired and predictable. The park is great. I just walked through it the other day. It gets lots of use and it's completely different from all other parks in the city.
Do you guys realize the Beaver Pond/fountain has not worked all summer? I don't know if it's broken or if they just turned it off but it has not worked all summer. Parts of the lure sculptures are already getting rusty, so I'm sure the best quality materials were't used. If this park is showing signs of neglect in less than a year, I wonder what its future holds?
