Looks like there is funding in this year’s budget for design work on the south of Canoe Park area mentioned last year. Yea!
 
This is great; nice find.

Here's the actual agenda item, which includes more detail on the public realm plan - https://secure.toronto.ca/council/agenda-item.do?item=2024.IE12.5

Part 2 here - https://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2024/ie/bgrd/backgroundfile-244446.pdf

Honestly, they just need to copy what has been done in Tokyo between Ueno and Akihabara (ie, the 2k540 Aki Oka Artisan Market) - https://www.timeout.com/tokyo/shopping/2k540-aki-oka-artisan
 
Thanks for links! Some images:

Just a note to point out that the parking lot at 720 Lakeshore West is basically not being used and would be a great location for redevelopment! Also I mention that the Armoury would make a great theatre/event space as it is perfectly situated adjacent to both The Bentway and The Ex.

I think that the bent numbers in the cement may be new? Anyways it has been given a Spring cleaning and is ready for the next round of events. Also I’m not sure what the container is going to be at the eastern end. Finally they seem to have really stepped up their seating game!
