Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- UrbanToronto has a nice rundown of the proposed design for Mouth of the Creek Park, which is supposed to be built alongside the still-under-construction Library District Condos, near the intersection of Bathurst Street and Fort York Boulevard. A rendering of the park, from designers Public Work and E.R.A. Architects, is above.
- Naturally, those condos are called “Library District” for a reason. And it turns out that the public library that’s being built nearby is going to have something pretty cool: a “digital hub,” complete with a 3D printer and a game-design lab. (The Toronto Reference Library is evidently also getting this stuff.)
- City council’s temporary ban on new Bathurst Street retail is being appealed to the OMB by RioCan, the developer behind the push to build a Walmart near Kensington Market. Surprise, surprise.
- The Star is promising that, in its Thursday paper, “photographs will morph into videos, columnists will speak, cartoons will animate.” Sure, you can get this any day of the week by mixing a little PCP with your coffee, but that makes the morning commute sort of challenging, doesn’t it? In this case, all you need is your phone.
