Toronto The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

Today, just poking in from Cityplace. You can see the office tower to the right in my third image. As I walked around the big park in this part of town, I thought of how beneficial the potential railyard deck park would be in knitting these two parts of the city together.

John Lorinc with a piece on the Well for Canadian Architect:

 
He's someone who's usually fairly in the know, and writes:

As for the south side, the passageway and adjoining condo entrances opening onto Front are likely to spend the next 10 to 15 years staring at what will become a vast construction site. The five-tower Rail Deck District project is to be cantilevered over the GO/VIA rail corridor, after prevailing in a tense air-rights battle with the City of Toronto over the latter’s plan to build a multi-billion-dollar park above the tracks.

Does he know something we don't?
