I have decided I'm no longer going to tweet about housing in Toronto. I am going to live in that decomissioned subway station and scare surface dwellers with my transparent skin, bioluminescent appendages, and glowing red eyes.
Life is too short to argue with NIMBYs and YIMBYs. I'm going to become a cryptid.
Somehow despite this proclamation I am losing followers. People really hate to see a girlboss winning/becoming the stuff of urban legend.

Love to see more modular supportive housing. This one looks like it's a @MontgomerySisam project?
to give you an idea of what this may look like, a recently complete project using this method but a different architect.
not to outright dunk on these buildings but the tech is still ramping up here so the more of these projects the better. the economy of scale to create beautiful modular buildings will hopefully emerge in coming years.

In an effort to preserve the core processing unit of the Flesh Gundam under unprecedented stress, a rigorous and deliberate maintaince program was started. Kind of surprised to find this has resulted in inadvertent changes to the chassis.
In all seriousness if you're like me and weight based excercise seems to be the best way to soothe the brainworms, the lifesaver this year for me was an adjustable kettlebell. Bit of an upfront investment but small footprint for apartments and fun/aggressive full body movements.
Also I have a tan for the first time in my life so maybe the sun/touching grass is helping too.

you may have loved honest ed's but did honest ed's love you?
there's zero moral judgement here btw. a landowner made a business decision based on an asset they controlled for years. but this should be a factor in your nostalgia.
For the record I am a deeply unpopular (but correct) person on this topic

Ok so for normies: the way the redevelopment of this parliament hill site works is a local architect licensed here provides "Architect of Record" services while an international starchitect will take on the bulk of the upfront design work
the models differ, but typically this means Schematic Design and Design Development will be go to the Design Architect, with the Architect of Record doing Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.
This means that you need a high quality design from the starchitect AND a local who understands our codes, trades, suppliers, etc. etc. etc. So for instance, the ROM crystal was designed by Daniel Libeskind...but the local architect was B+H.

Lime: too sweet!!! But I could still eat a whole bag so a win in my books. @sophsa says too sweet period, fails it on the full bag test.
Mexican Chicken Tomato Flavour: immediate dissent amongst the judges. I found the tomato overwhelming, Sophia was initially really into it. Over-oniony aftertaste killed it tho. Ultimately fail by both.
