View From The Southwest

This is the view of Casa Loma from the southwest and a block further south than yesterday's pic. The construction site in front is for some very high-end condos that are being built right beside railway tracks and behind that you see the buildings of George Brown College, a community college. Soon the Casa won't be visible from here except by those who have paid $1.3 million & up to live beside the trains.

Living close to the tracks sounds not so nice.

We are on the same wavelength re views being built out Pat as you will see in tomorrow's post. Toronto has as much building going as we do!

Condos right next to the train tracks does not sound like a good idea to me. Especially luxury condos. Do you think they will be successful? That is a hefty sum to pay for a view of the castle and noise of the trains.

Hello,

Looks like a busy place, with the construction near the railway! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day! Have a great weekend!

High end condos, built by developers who don't care about the effect of their buildings on the surroundings. Let's just say I have an extremely negative opinion of developers.

Looks a bit chaotic.

So much construction! Why do people want to live next to the trains...would be very noisy, no?

I can't imagine paying that kind of money and you live beside the tracks.

Vivo al lado de la estación de ferrocarril. Está cerrada desde 1984 y rehabilitada en Vía Verde.
Un abrazo.

I hope they enjoy their new homes! Trains are nice but not so sure about hearing them day and night.
