If you can afford it, buy one good outfit from Simmons (they may be having a sale)...then check out more affordable stores like old navy to add on to that. Have fun!

To disclose or not to disclose at work? Great piece by The New York Times highlighting some thoughtful strategies and considerations when it comes to this personal decision.

Thanks for the conversation everyone. I just wanted to save one house from the wrecking ball. I may try to get my hands on the turret and the round windows and put them in my front lawn as a tribute. 😀

Me too. We have a whole forest of ginkgos in our back yard. ;-)

Style aside, there is good design and there is bad design. And we're getting a lot of the latter.

Smaller and more creative use of space - to allow for co-op housing, co-housing, etc.

It's also forcing out "affordable" housing. We couldn't afford to live here if we were buying now. There has to be some way to expand the discussion beyond zoning to preserving what makes our community livable and lovable, while making it accessible to more people.

Yes, imagine a little library in the turret? Wouldn't it be great if developers maintained some of the original building? Westboro, like the Glebe, is a destination for people to shop, live, explore. I've had many people say they don't visit Westboro anymore: "Lost its charm."

I’m not sure anymore. There’s lots of development going on in this particular area. Do you know ?

A semi-detached box that takes up almost the entire yard and violates zoning bylaws: "proposed development on the parcels will not be in conformity with the requirements of the Zoning By-law"

And in TO: "Why, in the face of public outcry, do these demolitions keep happening?"

When we replace old homes with mcmansions: "architectural character is lost, the coherence of the community changes and the landfill fills up. The last point is not insignificant: the negative environmental consequences of teardowns are manifest."

The COA approved all but the height variances. Which means that city zoning bylaws are entirely optional in .
