    The Energy Code's flaw is that it looks at the envelope without any consideration of floor space, use, or even how much envelope there is per floor space.

    So you could build a 40' tall space with...

    That would make such a difference. An open site would be such an improvement, as long as they don't let it become a wasteland of garbage and weeds.

    The existing LRT bridge has enough room to add a multi-use path on either side at minimal cost, just a layer of asphalt on the existing gravel.

    As someone who uses 118ave occasionally, the heavy...

    It could work just fine with fewer lanes, but the...

    Bunt, ISL and Stantec have worked on TIAs and various models. Many of us wanted this roadway retained, for one idea was to remove it completely. It will still be 4 lanes, but made more community...

    Maybe.
    Or maybe it frees transit security to focus on antisocial behaviour and encourages enough additional trips by people legitimately going places to dilute the riff-raff.
  7. Sticky: Farebox recovery is low enough that it would...

    Farebox recovery is low enough that it would probably make sense to just make transit free. Otherwise, requiring use of a transit card wouldnt' be too much to ask of riders if it were made...

    Since the technology now allows distance-based fares I would rather not have zones at all. Charging more for a ride from Ambleside to Southgate than for Clairview to WEM doesn't make sense,...

    From what I understand the bridge piers have room for one additional lane on each side of the existing roadway, which means there's little savings to doing it all at once. For the rest, if you're...

    Maybe you're getting older?

    My next guess is that thanks to general construction chaos the rough crowd isn't migrating south during the day so they stay closer to the shelters and rooming houses -...

    It's not millennials, it's retired and semi-retired boomers, and it's us x-ers trying to keep up with the joneses not just in possessions but in experiences too.

    And those...

    Is this a rental building? if so then the odds that the above-grade parking could be changed to residential at a later date is much higher. The owners will likely charge a market rate for parking...

    Wrapped with fancy fašade, not with active uses.

    I'm happy about this as much as I like the towers, and I only wish they would have rejected Emerald on the same grounds (except substituting Jasper...

    You make no sense. People in "isolated megacities" account for less than 20% of the population in the US and no one is suggesting that their votes should count more than anyone esle's. They will...

    .... and apparently we spend around $400,000 per year to do so, so it would be 6 years of courtesy tows to equal a bike-share start-up capital, if necessary.

    That doesn't include the cost of...

    It looks like 30m+ between the loading access and the bridge, good for 8' elevation change on a straight ramp. it wouldn't take much in the way of switchbacks to make an accessible sidewalk. The...

    Underground loading docks would have been pretty sweet, too bad they didn't bite, but as loading docks go it's not so bad.

    Rather than have a dip I would rather keep the bridge and instead bring...

    Will you be posting a bond to support budget over-runs on the $1b+++ Yellowhead freeway project? No?

    Didn't think so.

    Sticky: Well hidden sarcasm??

    Permission, as far as I've heard.

    Even if they're looking for money it won't be much. Hamilton's system is run by a non-profit and got $2.4m to start and no operating funding since it started 5...

    I doubt that ONEX has shared that much of their game plan, but that makes sense. Ditch swoop fast, and prep Encore for sale separately when they've done everything else they want to do.

    West is fine. There's nothing wrong with a name linked to it's birthplace, and even if it grows massively it will be in the western hemisphere and the global west.
