Recommended Posts

picture.gifAs you can see in this (few years old) picture, there are three construction sites

, but still remains a lot of parking lots-huge & ugly empty spaces to be filled with parks or scrapers.

Anybody knows some future projects regarding it ???

Istrian...I'd love to help you post a picture. I looked to see what was wrong with your picture you tried to post above and you didn't give it the correct image location. This is the location you had for the picture:

Replace this with the correct image path and it will work for you.

I almost thought someone was calling this section a waste of space when I first saw the title LOL ;)

istrian - right click your picture, click on "Properties" in the drop down menu, select what's in the "Address/URL" section, and copy and paste it within [ IMG ] and [ /IMG ] without the spaces.

Yeah, it appears that way. Toronto is a much more vibrant city than Detroit though. It probably won't be long before those lots are developed. I wish I could say that for the parking lots in downtown Detroit.

Yeah, there's an embarrassingly high number of surface lots in part of downtown Toronto and in the case of the waterfront I suppose it can be attributed to the Gardiner freeway that runs through the area, and divides the waterfront from the rest of the city. One possible solution to that is to extent PATH down to the waterfront.

You can also see in this pic that there's not much street-level retail, but mostly condos and the Westin hotel.

Some of that parking is being built on (high-rise condos) as we speak. Give it 6 or 7 years, and I bet at least 50% of the parking you see in that picture will be developed, possibly more.

I think a lot of that land is just up in the air right now with the waterfront plan trying to happen... parking lots are just a temporary thing to make money while the plans are put in place? Just my theory.

Temporary, how long ?

It's already too long to wait,

but what else a simple beholder can do.....

The unfortunate reality is that buildings take a long time to plan and get through city council, especially high rises. Things don't just happen overnight.
