Well, it's Canada Day, and what better time to celebrate than to post my Toronto photos. I was in town in May and wandered around downtown to see what changes have occurred since my last visit some 3 years ago.

1. Condos ... lots of new condos ...









5. Soon this will be a vibrant, living neighbourhood. But I couldn't locate a supermarket or convenience store throughout my walk. Wonder where people get their food ... would they drive somewhere?











10. I believe this is the Port Authority. Toronto is a fairly small port city on the Great Lakes. Given this fact, they seem to be on the headlines quite a lot for a whole assortment of things.



11. These aren't on the new changes list.











16. The weather was quite good and the temperature was very comfortable for a long afternoon walk. May is usually a good time to visit Toronto. At night it dipped to a cool freezing mark for a few days. I remember leaving Hong Kong at about 26C ... quite balmy.









20. High tea at the Royal York, anyone?







23. Air Canada Centre is no longer visible from most of York Street. This was perhaps my biggest surprise. I thought the hangar was there, but now a few giant buildings stand in the way.



24. I really wonder how this capacity dump in new condo units would affect the real estate market, especially now with the economic slump. I recall Toronto's real estate was quite cheap by international standards already.







27. No CN Tower this time ... I've been up this thing several times before.





29. If I took the same picture a few years ago, the view would probably be almost the same. This is fairly deceiving.

























41. Cityplace ... this I knew about as it has been a work in progress for a long time already. Slowly but surely, the site is being filled up with glassy condos. I'll show more in part 2.









More to come in the next part!

Always enjoy your fotos hkskyline. Many thanks.:cheers:

Those condos look very Dubai-ish in my opinion. Could just as well be in Dubai Marina.
