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.
Southcore has been on a crazy run lately, even in the midst of the condo sales slowdown there have been new success with the release of Tridel's Ten York, and the start of construction on three major towers by Menkes which includes, 1 York, and Harbour Plaza Residences 1, and Harbourplaza Residences 2. Even now as we speak there are countless projects under construction in Southcore it will loath me to name them all. However, this is a skyscraper site, and it's my job to find out what's going on and list it here. So that is what I'm going to do. Each project listed on this site that is currently going up in Southcore will be listed here for your benefit and convenience. There is the chance, I will miss something however, I'll likely get back and create a post on those that don't have one, at a later date.
