    I was in Toronto looking for the old Lansdowne location from the 80s. I found sully's gym, on dupont, but that's a new location, correct? Does anyone know the address of the old location and is the building still there?

  • 362 / 370 Wallace Ave. (Former Glidden site) - Wallace Walk   7 weeks 1 day ago

    Hello all,

    I am trying to find out who is going to be leasing the commercial strip building spaces that are nearing completion adjacent to the WT railpath. I believe that this is 362/370 Wallace Avenue by looking at the survey and plans I found in this thread. If anyone has information regarding this, I would be really appreciative! We are looking for a new office space and I will be moving into Arch Lofts in a couple of months so this location is perfect.

    Thank you!

    What a shame!

  • Fuse Condos - Lansdowne & Dupont   37 weeks 4 days ago

    It's been awhile since the last comment, but I'm also wondering about this area.

    Did anybody buy into the Fuse condos? I'm concerned about the noise (railway, busy intersection, etc.). The sales person said that you won't hear anything with the windows closed. Can anybody already occupying the unit confirm if this is true?

    Also, how smooth was the overall purchasing and moving experience? I want to remove my phone. My lawyer brought to my attention a few highly unfavourable clauses.

    Any insight would be great!

  • Old rail underpass by Paton Road.   42 weeks 4 days ago

    I heard it was sealed when someone was killed in the tunnel. It would've been 15 years ago I think. When they build the new overpass, there is supposed to be room for people to walk under it at that point. But the shortcut to Propeller and the subway is a ways away.

  • Corner of Lansdowne and Dupont   46 weeks 6 days ago

    The contaminant is Trichloroethylene (TCE). It's from the GE factory, and seeped underground to that whole area. There's more about this property on this site here.

  • Corner of Lansdowne and Dupont   46 weeks 6 days ago

    That empty lot just south of Wallace on the East side of Lansdowne has been contaminated with some kind of toxic ground level water from what I understand. That's why you look in there all you ever see is huge mounds of loose gravle - I believe they do some kind of toxic cleanup behind those fences and contain as many traces of the toxic water by smothering it with gravle that can be loaded into heavy trucks and disgarded somewhere safe, while tons and tons of new gravle gets dumped around where it's needed....I honestly don't know the logistics, but I assume the gravle makes it so that it can't evaporate into the open air.

    What I would like to know is, what kind of toxic water/chemical is it and how did it get there?

    I remember seeing that underpass too. I didnt know there were gators there though. Scary huh. Maybe that's why it is sealed off.

  • Pedestrian bridge near Automotive Tower?   1 year 1 day ago

    This idea has come up many times and the two problems are cost and space. By law the bridge would have to be compliant with accessibility needs plus the bridge would need to meet specs to accommodate electrification. Both of these would cost.

    The accessibility design would require a fairly large footprint on either side as stairs are not enough. There is just simply not enough room on Golden etc to do this.

    There have also been suggestions of a bridge the other way over to Dublin Ave but again the issue is footprint.

    I suspect that one day there will be a bridge when the population gets so great that there is political numbers to demand it.

    Hi, I use to go to the Beaches Boxing Club with my dad, to watch my brothers Steve and John Hanti fight, you might remember them, if you know Bobby Dafoe. I loved watching boxing, and wished that I could of boxed too back in the day.

  • Pedestrian bridge near Automotive Tower?   1 year 3 weeks ago

    Joe I don't know what irked you to answer in such manner. It was a legitimate question.
    The answer is yes there was some talk about it , during the Castlepoint community consultations, but it was always viewed as too costly and not very important. The truth is that South Perth residents had to pick their battles, and being a fairly small and compliant group, lost many chances to better advocate for South Perth. Having a bridge that connects this neighbourhood to the Roncie/Loblaw's is not just a matter of convenience. Decreasing car use in this neighbourhood is something that we should all be advocating for .Lets not forget we have not just the fit and hip there are many elderly, and families with small children who can not navigate the tracks with ease.
    To the original poster: Do welcome to the community!

    Walk around buddy. The poor condo dwellers will just have to make-do. The majority of them are young and fit enough to walk / bike around the train tracks. Welcome to the neighborhood.
