From Front Street looking north, getting ready for the crane installation.


From Niagara looking south, the Panorama crane is visible in the background.

Does anyone think that Front west, West of Spadina has the potential to turn into a nice little neighbourhood?

I think so, if they get a little bit of non-harley davidson retail in the area. I walked through a little street with century row houses on either side and was blown away by how nice the area looked. If they could get a couple of coffee shops/neighbourhood establishments I could see that becoming a nice little neighbourhood.

The slaughterhouse needs to go first. This whole area smells horrible depending on when you're there.

It seems like there are rumors of cancelled developments for just about every building going up in Toronto. I really think guys just get their jollies being a downer and casting doubt on all the new projects. I'll believe it, when I see real evidence.

Change of status?

A friend who lives beside this development says they'd taken down one of the cranes - It's not nearly done - anyone know what's happenning here?
