Woke up with no water. Let for the office and 2 fire trucks and pilons closing the road off southbound. Came back 6 hours later, still no water. Massive condo development is taking occupancy next to us. Coincidence???
This city HAS to upgrade it's damn infrastructure before allowing massive developments. Seriously you have to live in the downtown core to get a sense of just how much is going up. This btw is coming from someone that makes a good chunk of their income from a lot of these developments. My company manages one of the largest (maybe the largest) residential architect firm in the city and a large property developer plus other architects and the largest architectural rendering shop. I'd gladly give up a little income to not have to deal with service outages and traffic hell.
Not to mention this weekend on top of all this crap there was another "run for the something" . It's a freaken marathon and or walkathon. It doesn't have to be in the downtown core of one the largest cities in North America! Hell I'm sure the burbs have roads.... These events shut down major roadways for hours and hours and getting from one end of the city to the other is never easy to begin with. Mind you nothing will ever compare to the G20 summit. I've never seen our parking garage so empty, most people just left town. The summit was just up the street from us. They even removed all the landscaping rocks from the property and Nygard's HO in Canada which you can see out my window has a huge we stand united banner with a US flag. They had to cover it up with a generic ad for the G20.
