[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: TIFF and transit, 311 Mildenhall Road, Galleria, 7 Labatt, NDP

  • Sean Marshall takes issue with how TIFF monopolizes much of the downtown, including key arteries like King Street.
  • blogTO reports on the luxurious estate of 311 Mildenhall Road, recently off the market at a price of well over $C 10 million.
  • Urban Toronto shares renderings of the first phase of Galleria on the Park. Wow.
  • Dozens of artists are working out of 7 Labatt Avenue, a warehouse set to be demolished. The Toronto Star reports.
  • NOW Toronto reports on the mess involving the NDP in the riding of Parkdale-High Park, here.

[PHOTO] Sunflower by the Galleria

While I was waiting for my bus to work this morning, my eye was caught by the sunflower that had grown up at the base of the pole marking the Dupont street stop southbound for the 29 Dufferin bus, sprouting up out of the pavement to blossom.

Once home to a U-Haul outpost, this kiosk with attached land across Dupont Street from the Galleria Mall was advertised for sale at a quarter-million dollars before it was bought some time ago. Neatly renovated, this is now available for renters at a price of $C 3500 a month. Suggested uses include dry cleaning, vehicle rental services, or a garden centre.
