A few weeks ago, we took a look at a few of our favourite European cities for some pointers on what makes a great city. This time around, we're going to learn from our neighbours across the border. Don't get us wrong. Toronto is an awesome city, but there are a few things that could make us better.
In October of 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit the eastern seaboard of the United States, all the way from Florida to Maine. Many major cities were affected by the storm, including New York City. The destruction caused millions of dollars in damages and the cities affected have been looking for ways to repair the damage and get back on their feet. In New York, they’ve established an initiative to not only help the city recover, but also make the city better than it was before.
We live in a city that’s constantly changing, but as we go on with our daily routine, the transformation that’s happening right before our eyes can sometimes go unnoticed. Over the past few decades, we've seen a number of buildings rise that have helped shape our city's now iconic skyline. Let's take a trip down memory lane and see what Toronto looked like before all of the changes.
As you already know, we’re big fans of Toronto’s waterfront. After all, it’s where we’re building our Pier 27 project, and it’s going through a major revitalization thanks to Waterfront Toronto and its 25-year, $30 billion revitalization efforts.
