Seeing the reflection of the CN Tower on all the buildings in the city is nothing new. People in glass houses is a new reality. In fact, no matter where you look, you’ll see cranes, construction and another condo going up…Anyways, many argue that this city is becoming a ‘glass city’.
Real Estate is booming and the average house is worth about a million. Are these the signs of a youthful, growing city? I think so. My true issue is with Toronto’s infrastructure. Our subways system is overburdened and hasn’t been upgraded or extended as the city grew. Honestly, there are cities of the same size (land and inhabitants) around the world that have a much better subway system. Then we have traffic. Oh boy, the traffic. The streets of Toronto could be packed on a Sunday afternoon.
Anyways, that’s my rant. I can handle the condos. But if more people are to live in the clouds, then the underground subways, highways and main streets need be upgraded as well. What are your thoughts?
