CUMBERLAND TERRACE REAL ESTATE
I like the Cumberland Terrace here in Toronto. Last week I took a walk through there to get from Bay Street to Yonge Street; a nice route on a very cold day. After all, the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) has a station which accesses the mall: "Bay" Station.
A few days after my little trek through the Cumberland Terrace, I see this in the Toronto Star...

The shopping has never been fully renovated so it remains an amazing museum dedicated to 1974, the year it opened.
Yeah, that mall is rather quiet, perhaps static, but I'm not so sure I want to see it go just to accommodate more condos in Toronto -- even if a newer shopping block will be built. The Cumberland Terrace has something which just occurred to me: It has a 'human scale', a pleasantness.
