I always knew I'd love it, but I loved it way more than I even thought I would. What a beautiful city, and just so happened I was there for Nuit Blanche, so an awesome added bonus!

Pretty much all of September was fall. Was one of the nicest I can remember.

^Incredible. Actually took me a second to realize where the Alexandra Park one was - that area has completely transformed.

Fantastic.

That last photo is quite the summation of Toronto. Lots of vegetation, a busy freeway (needs more traffic though), a prewar/just post-war SFH neighborhood with an arterial strip of high-rises on the left, commie blocks overlooking a ravine to the right, and a massive skyline and secondary nodes in the distance.

Yeah, baby. Love those shots of all that fine-grained goodness. But the way Eastern Avenue and that off-ramp from the DVP swoop into the city is really intrusive. They're a relic of a previous age when cars ruled all.

Is anything going to happen with that big parking lot next to the Distillery District?

The big lot to the east is going to become this, and the big lot to north will become this.

Yep. You (and the photo) nailed it.

What about the even bigger lot next to the tracks?

Oh I thought that was another site. For central Toronto the area still has a lot of surface parking. Not to mention the increasingly out of place staples and car dealership.

Mostly public property and decades of failed visions. They cleared out all the industry in the 1980s. Google Ataratiri.

The big lot to the east recently broke ground
