Observations

Well, Iím back from holiday, and not much has changed.

The building on the SW corner of Yonge and Grenville has risen to the ground-floor level.

The building on the NE corner of Yonge and McGill has reached four storeys. My! But they have been busy here in the last three weeks.

And on the SE corner of Yonge and McGill, work is under way in earnest.

The large holes in the unfinished section of Gerrard Street look just as they did four weeks ago. Toronto is a city that manages to get all projects to the 95% completion point, and then all work stops and we live in dis-array for the want of a day or two of work. Or a truckload of top-soil.

I now understand what these dimpled arcs are for.

Although they looked a lot nicer painted white in Poissy.

And right across the street we donít have the dimpled tiles. Yet.

Probably be another five years, knowing Toronto. City Council and its planning and management strategy.
