I'm not asking for patchy roads and dead trees. How about something even close to real life on Main.

Here is a condo rendering next to the GO Station in Mimico: http://sunnybatra.com/images/11555/On-Th...

And here is the real-life view of that same street: http://goo.gl/maps/3Dssq

The renderings always make life look uber grand, but at least they perfectly depicted the design and feel of the street.

Here's another one on Dundas St in the Junction: http://www.urbantoronto.ca/sites/default...

Here's how the street really looks: http://goo.gl/maps/T3rvF

Again, completely accurate representation of the street.

There's a reason architects refuse to show a 5-lane freeway with trucks and tiny sidewalks next to their beautiful designs on Main.
