The Scarborough City Centre keeps growing.

Here are some photos I took tonight on my walk through the Scarborough City Centre, near my house.
The Scarborough sector of Toronto is the fastest growing area in the city, and the cranes keep rising in the Scarborough City Centre. Enjoy.

The cranes are up. Two more towers.






A Scarborough Rapid Transit train. Over 45,000 people ride the SRT each day.


Another condo project.


Construction photos.






Skaters in Albert Cambell Square, right next to the new condos.




The Scarborough Rapid Transit with the entrance to Scarborough Town Centre Shopping Centre and Scarborough Centre Rapid Transit Station. This is Miketoronto's station.


Pedestrian tube.


Part of the Scarborough City Centre skyline. It is bigger than you see here.






A bus going to Miketoronto's house.


Another bus going to Miketoronto's house. Time to catch my ride home.

Nice. How tall are those new condos going to be?

I wish they would retire the SRT and extend the Bloor-Danforth line there.

Anything new?

Anything new around Scarborough Centre, or has development stalled?
Seems more is happening in Mississauga near Square One.

It sure doesn't look like the Sciberia I remember from the early 80s when I was living in Toronto.

Has the subway construction started yet? I remember there were plans to extend the Sheppard line here and replace the Scarborough RT with an extension of the Bloor-Danforth line.

Is the underground Eglinton LRT going to reach here as well?

Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown

Those projects are almost dead.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheppard_line#Ford_era

But the Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown project is on its way.
http://www.thecrosstown.ca/

Construction of the Crosstown began this summer (2011), and has a projected completion date of 2020.

The 25km line will run underground from Jane/Black Creek Drive to Kennedy Station,
then on a structure completely separated from traffic to the Scarborough City Centre.

Travel on the Crosstown from Kennedy to Black Creek is projected to take 35 minutes.
It will take only 45 minutes to travel from Scarborough City Centre to Black Creek.
This is less than half the time it currently takes to travel the same route.

All Crosstown stations will accept the new PRESTO payment card system.
Light-rail vehicles will feature low floors.
Stations will have a main entrance with elevators, making the system accessible to all passengers.

At Eglinton West Station (Allen Road) and Eglinton Station (at Yonge Street) the Crosstown line will be built to cross underneath the existing subway lines.
The design will include elevators and escalators as well as stairways for passengers to transfer between lines.

Kennedy Station will be re-built for seamless service between the Scarborough RT section and Eglinton sections of the Crosstown line.
The station design will also include elevators and stairway access for passenger transfers to the Bloor-Danforth subway line and a walkway to connect to the GO line.

Construction http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eglinto...e#Construction
The Eglinton–Scarborough Crosstown line will run for a total of 25.2 km (15.7 mi) from Black Creek Drive to McCowan Road, 19.5 km (12.1 mi) of it underground and 5.7 km (3.5 mi) elevated.
Initial plans had the line rising to the surface east of Brentcliffe Avenue.
There will be up to 26 stations in total, with an estimated 100 million trips annually in 2031.
The Presto card will be available for use across the line.

The first part of tunnel construction involves the construction of a launch shaft for tunnel boring machines (TBMs) at Black Creek Drive, which began on October 2011.
Metrolinx ordered four TBMs at a cost of $54 million on July 28, 2010.
These TBMs will commence midtown tunnelling in the summer of 2012.
The average mining rate for a single machine is 75 metres a week of lined tunnel.

Scar City Centre is still growing. I will go out and take some updated photos of the new development.
Until then, a teaser photo from this past spring.

Progress Ave (terrible name) has sure changed from the days of the early 80s when I used to dine at the Howard Johnson Restaurant with my grandparents. Back then, there were no highrises; only the Scarborough Civic Centre + ajacent mall (smaller then). There were quite a few commie blocks scattered north and south along McCowan, etc.

Scarborough Centre construction map

Which zone are under construction?
Maybe someone can add rectangles to this Google map image which is probably a few years old.
