General University Area Updates and Rumours
I thought, as you did, that the barrels were empty and being used for flotation.

They could have built this off-site and moved it into place, or left the materials in a nearby parking lot or road, but they chose to block the MUT instead.

Speaking of blocking paths, the construction on UW campus just off Laurel Trail near University really narrowed the access to campus for a while and was totally unused for like a week. I moved some of the fences to improve access...
I saw that several trees along Seagram south of UW place have been recently cut down. Does anyone know why?

This is the place: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.4701676,...312!8i6656
Might be ash trees? I don't know my trees very well...
Those do look like ash, so the emerald borer is probably the culprit.

EVOLV2 coming to RT park. Too bad the design hasn't evolved. Another 3-story building next to an lrt stop (130,000sf). They should be going for LEED-ND instead of LEED platinum.

Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
Is there a height limit in the R+T park? the low rise buildings leave a lot to be desired.
I believe most of the RT park is UC-81 and has limit of 81m or 25 storeys.

This may have been posted before. I saw this on a bike ride through RT park. Not sure of the company that has this facility. Picture shows solar panels collecting energy for electric cars. 

Often times parking requirements, not zoning actually limit density and height.
