Early last evening, I was walking with a friend east on Queens Quay when we saw the CCGS Limnos, a coast guard research ship,
anchored off Sugar Beach.

[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: Lawrence Heights, waterfront, Distillery District, Chinatown

  • Christopher Hume at the Toronto Star notes how the ongoing attempt to revitalize Lawrence Heights will try to plug that neighbourhood back into the wider city of Toronto.
  • Urban Toronto notes efforts by condo designers to make the Sugar Beach towers suitable for families.
  • Ontario Place would be a perfect place for a swimming pier, wouldn’t it? CBC reports.
  • Daily Hive notes that the Distillery District will soon house the Collège Boreal.
  • blogTO notes a classic Chinatown building on Spadina Avenue that has been given a terrible makeover.

[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: Reese Fallon, guns, Sugar Beach North, Little Ethiopia, Parkdale

  • Reese Fallon, one of the two people killed in the Danforth shooting, was a student hoping to go to the fall to McMaster University to study for a career in nursing. The Toronto Star reports.
  • People in some Toronto neighbourhoods with high levels of gun violence welcome an expanded police presence, despite other issues. CBC reports.
  • Urban Toronto notes an exciting plan to, among other things, build a Sugar Beach North on the waterfront.
  • blogTO talks about Little Ethiopia, on Danforth by Greenwood. Speaking as someone familiar with his Little Ethiopia near Ossington, this area sounds fascinating.
  • The Pia Bouman School in Parkdale, a leading dance academy for four decades, is hoping to avoid displacement by new construction. CBC reports.

I visited Toronto’s Sugar Beach on Sunday with a friend, and was pleased. Pride’s XLSIOR beach party was in full swing under the sung, as people laid down on the strand, danced to the music, or walked under the leafy trees. Cost perhaps aside, this park just six years old is a winner.
