Here's something super boring -- quick 1 hour sketch -- but important for us to think about: how tall should a building at Bloor and Spadina be? Two subway lines meet here. I am guessing the developer wants ~30-36 storeys here, so I kind of went crazy with my ask

the site could probably fit 2 towers so the density will remain the same

Here's what I'd probably do with the Christie Cookie factory site at Park Lawn and Lake Shore:


100% six storey tall street wall everywhere with retail fronting Lake Shore and Park Lawn and some along the new Cookie Street, with 6-8 balcony towers between 30 and 75 storeys, a school/daycare/community centre/library facing a public park with restored Christie water tower and several blocks of TCHC social housing. Extend Silver Moon Drive north and west towards Park Lawn. ~6000 housing units, 10% affordable housing. Finally, extend the proposed DRL subway line from city hall along Queen Street West to Humber Bay Shores with a station at Park Lawn and Lake Shore. And maybe 10 floors of office space in the tower right at PL & LS.

Wow, that sounds ambitious. Interesting plan there.

Gave me an idea for my next facade

If I were a developer, I'd develop communities by building super Eco-friendly Passive and Net Zero Houses exclusively and revolutionize residential building practices and technology in a progressive way. It makes perfect sense for our harsh winter weather and expensive utility. It'd be a win-win for everyone.

Remixing another of my fave designs onto the 415 Yonge site:

Hanging out in K-W this past week, I was spending some time walking the barren midtown strip between Uptown Waterloo and the train station near Victoria. So a modest proposal to improve things by c.2050:

6 storey midrises lining the main drag aka King Street, with some 4s stacked towns on the side streets and several office buildings up to 10 storeys tall across the street from the Google campus.

Looking west along King Street from near the train station towards Waterloo

the station district/innovation district west

Central Fresh Market and area to be redeveloped ...

extending all the way to Union Blvd.
