Does it make sense to link projects to their corresponding threads if they exist?

Thanks.  And, yes, it does make sense.  I'll get that done, but not tonight. Smile

Any other opinions on include/exclude Schneiders? I don't have a strong view on this so I'm happy to go with the consensus.

I would absolutley include it. To me downtown isn't just "where the tall buildings currently are", it's the encapsultaing area that downtown is rapidly expanding into. If we're including King East down to Ottawa as "downtown", the Schneider's sit should absolutely be a part of that.

Are we?  I thought that King E beyond Cedar (Cameron at a stretch) was considered "King East" rather than "Downtown".

It's not Downtown BIA ... but it's discussed in the WRC "Downtowns" forum. Smile Maybe that should be the defining criterion?

Have started adding links (both to the pages and to the official sites, where they exist). Not done quite yet though ...

That will be almost as good as a map. Thanks for doing this.

Somebody else can tackle the map later. Smile A map would be much more useful for someone who doesn't know the cities, for us the street locations are not so mysterious!

I had been thinking about making a map, albeit a 3D one to incorporate building heights. Hopefully we'd get a clearer picture of the future skyline that way

The downtown neighbourhood alliance uses these boundaries:

I think I would include Mill-Courtland wedge and the Auditorium wedge personally. K-W hospital may soon feel split between including itself in midtown or downtown.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
