[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: #winterstations, Toronto Islands, King Street, 401 Richmond, coffee

  • Muriel Draaisma talks at CBC about the art installations selected for this year’s iteration of Winter Stations, including a “Pussy Hut”.
  • The City of Toronto has, unaccountably, decided not to allocate all the money needed to repair the Toronto Islands after last year’s flooding. CBC reports.
  • Mayor John Tory talks about the various plans–some new, some I think old–to bring more people to King Street during the transit experiment, over at the Toronto Star.
  • This Toronto Star article about changes to taxation that will let downtown arts centres, like 401 Richmond, not get priced out of their homes is older but still quite important.
  • blogTO notes local upset in Corso Italia that the local Starbucks, at Dufferin and St. Clair (not far from me!) is set to close. (I’ve never been there, which I suppose helps clear up any mystery around the closing.)
