LF Parking Spot or Garage Spot near Dundas + Dupont

Hi there,

I work in the area, and am looking for a parking spot to rent, open to covered or uncovered. The office is at Dundas and Dupont, so somewhere in the area.


Union lofts

Does anyone living in the Perth\Wallace area have any information on what is happening with the construction there?

NOTE: There's an existing forum for this development here. Replies should go in that forum. Closing comments here.

Bloor-Perth Underpass Art - North Side Installation

Angel Carillo (aka Cruz1) was selected by a StreetARToronto jury to curate a mural in the railway underpass on Bloor St. between Perth Ave. and Dundas St. West. The "Wallnoize 6" event on April 17-19 will see a large group of selected local graffiti artists transform the north side wall in their own unique styles. Each of the 20+ artists will get their own panel tow work with on the wall.

A few weekends later in May, another group of artists will paint the the south side of the underpass with a graffiti-styled letters, each artist painting one letter of the alphabet in their own way.

Found wedding ring @ the park


I found what looks like a wedding band, in the grass at a local park. It may or may not be precious but likely has sentimental value so I wanted to share. If it belongs to you or someone you know - please contact me at with a detailed description of the ring to prove ownership and how I can best reach you so that you can be reunited with it as soon as possible.

All the best,

Metrolinx and the City of Toronto’s StreetARToronto (StART) program have teamed up to deliver locallyinspired

one opportunity to review preliminary concepts and let the artists know what you want the art in your
community to look like.

The concepts will also be posted online for review and feedback at from March 5th
to March 11th. The successful artist will be chosen based on various criteria, including how the
community’s input is represented in their final design.

Rail construction access from Sterling Rd. across Railpath

As part of their ongoing construction work in the rail corridor, Metrolinx will be creating a temporary access road into the corridor from 158 Sterling Rd. (the former Tower Automotive site) across the West Toronto Railpath. Details, with map, are in the attached flyer.

Rail Corridor Access to begin early February at 158 Sterling Rd.

What we are doing

  • We are grading and installing track and signals between Lansdowne Avenue and Dupont Street to complete the expanded rail corridor for increased transit service.
  • We are accessing the corridor at two locations to finish construction by the end of this year. The first is already in use at Dundas Street West and Brad Street. The second access will be at 158 Sterling Road where we will also store new track materials.
  • Trucks will cross the West Toronto Railpath to enter and exit the rail corridor at the Sterling Road location.

How this will affect you

  • We will begin to use the 158 Sterling Road access/storage on early February until the end of 2014.
  • Railpath users will have the right-of-way over construction vehicles. A traffic control person will be
  • positioned at the access point during construction hours. Appropriate signage will be in place along the path advising users of the condition ahead. Signage will also be placed along the access road reminding drivers to stop and yield to railpath users.
  • Regular work hours are Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 7p.m., Saturdays 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. There may be occasional work on Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • We expect an average of 8 to 10 trucks per hour to use this access on a daily basis.
  • All trucks will travel along Sterling Road from Dundas Street West to access the construction site.
  • We will regularly clean the roads our trucks will be using, including the West Toronto Railpath.


Wilco (my dog/Havanese) bolted out of my backyard gate this morning when it started to thunder (Dupont and Symington area). Gate had been left open by the pest control guy. Been missing ever since. Noticed yesterday that the tag I just had engraved with his name and my phone number was no longer on his collar, so unfortunately there is no way to identify him. Called Toronto animal services, but no luck. If any Toronto west-enders see a little white/cream pup roaming the streets, please take a closer look to see if it's my little guy if you don't mind.
