Corktown District, Toronto

Residents rile against streetcars for the sake of Corktown's heritage friendly streetscape.

The One's sources inform us that an (unspecified and mysterious) " number of residents are concerned" about (20 unspecified and mysterious) "infractions" in local Streetcar Developments projects that apparently represent a threat to our heritage friendly streetscape.

We're curious which heritage-related aspects of the area under development are at risk. Perhaps the sinuous gothic curves of the Heart & Lung building? The romanesque arches of the Sony Service Centre? Or perhaps the crenellated parapets of Print One or the massive buttresses of the Big & Tall Shop? The rustic ramparts of Dixon Hall?

Maybe we're missing something, but from where we sit, we don't see anything particularly historically memorable about the area, so we're unclear what heritage-friendly would look like in that context.

So tell us, you mysterious, unspecified folks, where you sit, by adding your comments below!
