waterloo town square... conversion of a downtown shopping mall (designed in suburban mall style, strangely, parking lots and all) into streetfront sidewalk retail...

the project is in Waterloo, Ontario, 1 1/2 hours from Toronto


I just used it for an example... I have been driving down to Waterloo for awhile to stay with the project... it's been quite exciting for residents of the area. I'm sure people will have other examples of before and after...

JEez! That Dubai pic is freaking scary, but amazing!!! It's amazing that a city could be transformed like this in just 1 year. It's scary, because what's it gonna be like in 10? Its simply too fast to adapt and to get used to the city. I wouldnt want to see my city dissappear in a flash and resurface like an other monstrous city.

Unfortunately, this is probably a building that will also have destruction photos.
