Egress rules across the Lineal Park were supposed to keep the Revival 629 Studio's LSB gate closed, except 11pm to 7am.
It's been open all the time now for quite a while (weeks? - months?) ...
.. And cyclists have already started using it as a safe route between the Lower Don Recreation Trail and the Eastern Avenue Bike Lanes.
New Cycling route through Revival 629 Studios avoids Carlaw
Northbound, take the west-side-of-the-building path up to Pape. Southbound you may choose to enter at the east gates (just west of Winnifred) and ride across the top to the west-side path
It's great! It avoids the nearby narrow, congested, ugly, dirty, dangerous, pot-holed Carlaw Avenue - excellently. :)
But what does it say about Small Blocks as a way to create livable neighbourhoods all along the South of Eastern study area generally, and the StudioCentre proposed development specifically?
Small Blocks are really important - but so far we haven't been successful at creating Complete Streets through intersections that cross Lake Shore Boulevard; part of that is political part of it is cultural - the other part is mechanical.
How do we create Complete Streets intersections at these new neighbourhood streets that cross a Grand Boulevard like Lake Shore Boulevard?:
I expect the answer is that we cannot have Grand Boulevards - don't need Grand Boulevards - of the type that we have now here in this Lake Shore Boulevard.
