The street and area looks great now, it is a true signature street. My only wish, that they had used grass on the streetcar R.O.W. (which the fire and ambulance service argued against)as originally planned instead of concrete, it would have been fantastic. These projects are the kind of investment a lot people don't like because they see it as a waist of money because they think it is mostly to do with looks and design. What the naysayers are missing is the complete rebuild of all the underground services, which was desperately needed as well as the improvement and rationalization of transit, cycling and pedestrian facilities, while the road gets redesigned and has been made more efficient. They even kept most of the street parking spaces on the north side of Queens Quay. So Toronto gets a complete street and a new post card picture they can now market to the rest of the world. Well worth the $140 Million in my opinion.
