What do Toronto’s older buildings tell us about the intentions of the city’s earlier planners? Historian, author and University of Toronto professor Richard White takes Spacing Radio reporter Sarah Bridge to Grange Park to reflects on how past planning decisions about its surrounding buildings, and plans for the city as a whole, have affected how Toronto works and feels today.
Watch for an article by Richard White in the upcoming summer 2010 issue of Spacing magazine on the history of Toronto’s jog eliminations — a crucial but often unheralded element of city planning and revitalization.
