The End of 2014

The end of 2014 or the year of construction. Our neighbourhood has been marked by major infrastructure and housing projects but I feel like were not the only ones. There’s major renovation going on at the corner of Avenue Road and Yorkville with Yorkville Plaza. When I check it out on Google Maps and think about it, that construction has been happening for 2 or 3 years.  The shots below are of the old sales office and a close to completed doorway.IMG_4127 IMG_4124In the Junction Triangle we’ve been besieged by both the UP railway line construction and a major townhouse development. The orange tarps cover the work being done on the rail bridge across Bloor at the Bloor Go Station which will double as an UP Station.  IMG_4106I will be pretty happy to see the end of these railway ties. The smell of creosote is crazy strong every time you walk by them. I do however think they look pretty neat stacked up like this.IMG_4101Also, found: one right handed pink latex glove. If someone was washing up on the path and lost this I can tell you exactly where it is. It’s nestled snuggly on the West Toronto  Rail Path surrounded by aging dog feces. Word.IMG_4105
