Is it something that the city incorporates each time they redo or repave a street? How does the city go about reconstructing a street? We have done it many times here in Montreal. St Laurent and Park ave were recently rebuilt (water main, gas, pavement, side walk..etc.) How does TO do that with rails and overheard wires everywhere?

Did they give up on building pavement electrified street cars entirely?

Why not take the opportunity to do so while a street is being rebuilt?

With the new subway line extension being built and new streetcars on the way, there's definitely nothing that is going to change on this case in the next decade or so. I know it has been done before but it is a very tedious process that I am sure the city doesn't want to jump in. I think the wiser option would be to leave the existent overhead wires and consider ground power lines in the future extensions of the streetcar system.

This has probably been said before, but it bears repeating:

 

Toronto has many impressive buildings, but their obsession with teal-colored glass condo towers is over the top.

One or two is quite nice. When you've got 10 of these side by side, it's just ridiculous. Ugly as hell.

I'd rather have a diverse collection of ugly buildings than a homogenous collection of teal-colored glass condos copy/pasted everywhere.

Ça a toujours été mon opinion. Cette photographie résume bien ce que je n'aime pas du développement actuel de Toronto. En dehors de l'aspect, je ne peux pas croire qu'une copropriété où tu peux pratiquement toucher l'autoroute par ta fenêtre soit un milieu de vie intéressant. Ça ou les voies ferrées, ou être carrément enclavé par les deux... La revitalisation urbaine devrait être plus que construire à profusion sur des terrains ingrats.

 

La densité impressionne, par contre. Le skyline de Toronto change tellement vite, on se croirait en Chine. Toronto devient une mer de tours de calibre international. J'imagine que c'est le revers de la médaille, sur une telle quantité de construction, ce qui est iconique est noyé dans le restant. Et l'effet que donne la proximité des constructions lorsqu'on roule sur cette autoroute est impressionnant, en rentrant dans le centre-ville de Toronto.
