Unbuilt Toronto 2

Quill & Quire cited Unbuilt Toronto as a book filled with ",well-researched, often gripping tales of grand plans,", while Canadian Architect said that it is ",an impressively researched exploration of never-realized architectural and master-planning projects intended for the city.", Now Unbuilt Toronto 2 provides an all-new, fascinating return to the ",Toronto that might have been.", Discover the scrapyard statue planned for University Avenue, the flapper-era ",CN Tower", that led to a decade of litigation, and an electric light-rail transit network proposed in 1915. What would Toronto look like today if it had hosted the Olympics in 1996 or 1976? And what was the downtown expressway that Frederick Gardiner really wanted? With 150 photographs, maps, and illustrations, Unbuilt Toronto 2 tracks the origins and fates of some of the city's most interesting planning, transit, and architectural ",what-ifs.",
