The rest of that strip up to Nordstroms is pretty awful too. It would be nice if they could re-build that entire side of the mall facing Yonge. Yonge facing retail on the first 1-2 floors with 9-10 floors of office, maybe even residential, above.

Since the entire Yonge Street facade was unsuccessfully replaced about 15 years ago, I shouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to be done again any time soon. It really is a dog's breakfast.

It's prime retail space gone to waste and the cost could be mitigated by building office above. I don't know what they were thinking when it was 'improved' 15 years ago. Maybe they'll have a proper budget and hire an architect next time they get around to tackling it.

It's probably the best option during that time. Most people back then think that the future is in the suburbs and urban cores will soon be deserted.

The two bridge crossings are woven together with the community through a sequence of enhanced landscape experiences. These expanded connections have a civic affect that extends beyond the bridges, lengthening the experience beyond merely the spans for a public realm contribution that reaches deeper into the community.

A project like this is exactly what I wanted to happen!!
Quote:
Railway track space could become Toronto’s ‘Central Park’


A bold new legacy park pitched by public officials for the downtown core, being dubbed Toronto’s Central Park, would link long-separated neighbourhoods and provide much needed green space.

That’s the hope of Mayor John Tory, local politicians and senior planning officials in the newly announced attempt to secure the rights to the air space over the rail corridor between Bathurst St. and Blue Jays Way to build a 21-acre deck park now being called Rail Deck Park.

Although the city made its intentions clear Wednesday, there are still many unknowns. Most critical is how to pay for the construction and maintenance of such a significant space with looming budget pressures ahead. And a project of this size, according to those pitching it, is still many years in the making.

With an area just larger than 16 regulation football fields, the proposed park would dwarf all other green spaces in the core. It’s an open space that chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat said could be “our Central Park” — a “grand civic gesture” in a part of Toronto experiencing unprecedented residential growth and one that is also the most deficient in parkland.
