Auto traffic?

AUTO TRAFFIC?!?!?!?!




The "war on cars" and "I'll never go downtown again" folk of Greater #HamOnt have yet to realize how the battlefield may be a-changin'

hopefully less vagrants then too - a busier downtown tends to scare those away..

mind you it's nowhere near as bad as it was 10 or 15 years ago..

I guess you've never been in downtown Toronto then. Lot's of vagrants there, they just become less viable with more people.

I am happy to see this one above grade already, and it looks to be a really big ground section/podium...

It's still being built. I was in the hammer a week or two ago and I think it was like 3 stories above ground at that point.

Walk by every day on my way to the GO bus stop. They're almost done pouring columns to support the 4th floor. I think the podium will be 6 or 7 stories total so it'll be a while before work starts to get interesting. Since every floor of the tower is the same shape I think it'll be pretty speedy once they get to it.

It's going to be a beast. They're on the 4th level parking right now. Weather hasn't helped but once they get the podium levels done it should fly up in the spring.
