    Abandoned 1980s housing development adjacent to Earl Bales Park

    Fascinating, thanks. There was much more housing planned down there than I realized.

    Abandoned 1980s housing development adjacent to Earl Bales Park

    Very interesting, Jarndyce, thanks. The map (D) is particularly insightful. "Goblet Court" has been nothing more than a small hiking trail for as long as I can remember, whereas "Northborne Ave" was actually worked on with bulldozers fairly extensively back in the mid-'80s. I rode my bike...

    Thank you for all your informative posts, Northern Light.

    Abandoned 1980s housing development adjacent to Earl Bales Park

    This is kind of a sister thread to my still-unsolved topic/query revolving around the destroyed Earl Bales Park footbridge. I remembered today that in the early-to mid-1980s, off Westgate Blvd, there were the very beginnings of what was to be a residential street with houses on it. It was...

    Fantastic photo updates.

    The black is a welcome contrast to all that light blue and green glass.

    True, but it's not symmetrical without the extra floors.

    Toronto | The Pemberton | 215.79m | 68s | Pemberton | a—A

    The dozer at the top of the ramp has migrated five feet to the right due to the geomorphologic processes of the passing millennia.

    Have you thought of making a gif, jer1961?

    Benito exhausts more kilojoules of energy lifting the camera to his face and snapping a photo every month than has been exhausted by the workers on this construction site.

    I agree with you. Don't be embarrassed to state your opinion.

    The design is uninspired, to say the least.

    Assuming the tallest is no longer 832 ft.

    That's a shame. What a great vantage from which to view progress on several projects in the area.

    I hope the Billy Bishop site is redeveloped. I guess my point is that the bridge would get very little use because its northern end-point currently is not a desirable destination for anyone on foot. Perhaps a small handful of residents of the newish condo buildings at Wilson and Tippett would...

    I suppose any pedestrian bridge is better than nothing, but that pedestrian bridge across the 401 dumps its users into the middle of a windswept wasteland at the south end of an infernal "Smart" Centre, i.e. a massive parking lot peppered with big box stores. What is a pedestrian going to do...

    I'm not in the industry, nor am I well-versed in economics. What current proposals, if any, are imperilled by the putative impending crash? I know there's an ongoing urgent need for housing in Toronto, so I have a hard time squaring that circle.
