I inquired w/workers on-site. This will not be granite, nor brick, nor feature any trees, we are getting 100% quality concrete, and that's it...........pffft.

Wow… so it’s going to go from absolute bargain basement temporary asphalt sidewalk to zero effort given concrete sidewalk with no design features or landscaping?

My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined. (Though I am not surprised in the slightest; and I appreciate @Northern Light ’s investigative efforts!)

The concrete sidewalk is pretty much standard - it was the least disappointing aspect of this project.

True enough, and I don’t have any issue with using concrete for sidewalks - but I don’t think it’s too much to ask that they include something to break up a large expanse of it. Whether that be some trees or trim or what have you.

Downtown
Yonge Street as a whole is a write off until it is reconstructed as part of the Yonge TOmorrow study.

Tender & Construction is slated for 2023-2025 but that may be the first phase.

Basically, we have to wait another 10 years before expecting a better streetscape in this part of town.
