Each Tuesday, Spacing Montreal will share some posts from our sister blog, Spacing Toronto. We hope it will fuel constructive dialogue on the urban issues faced by both cities.
Three’s a crowd
After observing diminishing sidewalk space around the city with the implementation of new bus shelters, Dylan Reid set out to get some evidence of this change, tape measure in hand. His findings demonstrate that some of these shelters leave less than the standard 2.1 meters of sidewalk space.
Stemming from the Palladian architecture of the Italian Renaissance, Georgian architecture took shape during King George’s reign in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Thomas Wicks takes a look at the evolution and legacy of the Georgian style in Toronto.

Shawn Micallef notes his observations of a characteristic element of New York City that we generally lack here in Toronto: the street canopy. He takes a look at why our streets lack them, and asks Spacing readers whether canopies are an encroachment or a positive addition to city sidewalks.
