We dished out the details on what’s happening at Downsview Park this summer,  which is within close proximity to our new project, The Yorkdale, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten all about Fort York, Library District’s neighbouring public space! In fact, Fort York is poppin’ this summer – and it’s no longer just a historical site.

Listen up folks, we’re going to let you in on a little secret. If you think condos are typically small and meant for couples or the bachelor life, you’re wrong. No, we’re not referring to that bachelor, you know, the one with the hot tubs and desperate women (although, whatever floats your boat buddy). We’re talking about the kind of bachelor that can’t remember the last time they did laundry and kind of wanders around their apartment in a haze because they have an intense desire for human contact but are too shy to talk to the pretty girl (or guy) a couple floors down when they see them in the elevator. You’re familiar, right?

We almost froze to death but decided that for you, our lovely readers, we’d brave the cold to go check up on Scott at the Library District Sales Centre.

It’s a big green space with awesome elements, and located next to the Library District condos and the city’s 100th public library.

Get it? Check out? Libraries … eh? Eh? Fine, puns aren’t your thing, we get it. But we thought it was clever. Anyway, we went and got an update from the Library District site and there’s some great news — after the jump, of course!

We’ve got some great news to brighten up this Monday and it involves Library District (and money).

Make sure you’re sitting down because this promotion is going to knock you off your feet! or at least cause you to move your chair a little…

Okay, we have a slight surprise for you so try to contain your excitement. There’s been amazing progress on the amenities centre of Library District and we just couldn’t wait to show you. Here’s the amenities centre in it’s current incarnation

Ah July, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, Library District is rising, couldn’t ask for a better time. We’ve come a long way in a year and we can’t wait to show you what’s going on! But first, a look back to a year ago.

Ahh … Wednesday – far enough from Monday, but too far from Friday.

We decided to lighten up this hump day with a … drumroll please  … Library District CONSTRUCTION UPDATE!

It can be said that with the exception of the Molson Amphitheatre, Toronto is really lacking in the space necessary to hold a top-notch summer music festival downtown. And before you start, no, Downsview park doesn’t count.

But then our good friends and usually quiet neighbours over at Fort York went and let a bunch of musical hooligans into their yard for some good old fashioned fun. Which has us all excited about these amazing shows lined up this summer.
