Well I'm posting this live blog update on Aura from the Eaton Centre and there is some police action going on here right now. Think the whole police force is down here. Hopefully no one got shot.
This photo is from Yonge just north of College looking south to the Aura Condo by Canderel. You can see the Courtyard Hotel and the newly Renovated Wendy's restaurant from this angle. I'll see if I can find out what happened at the Eaton Centre and update later tonight.
Hong Kong Style Density: The Model For Toronto?
Would Hong Style Density be a good model for Toronto Skyscraper growth, and urban renewal. Mind you that Hong Kong, and Chinese Cities seem to have a far more chaotic layout and pace than gentle Canadian Cities. However, one has to marvel at the efficiency of Hong Kong, and other Chinese Cities when it comes to getting people around town. Now, I understand that the days of thousands of people riding down the streets of Chinese cities on bicycles have long gone, as a newly rich China has been using its new-found wealth to purchase luxury vehicles for the masses, it’s us here in the supposedly old rich countries that are the ones resorting to using bikes to get around our cities.
