1. Urban umbrella opens in Toronto
from CBC News
From Nov. 2, 2012:
A pedestrian-friendly alternative to clunky wood and metal scaffolding that turns sidewalks into narrow, dark tunnels around construction sites is making its Canadian debut. A pair of Toronto construction projects are said to be the first use of Urban Umbrella's metal and plastic design outside of New York City. The new scaffolding — made of recycled steel and resembling an unfurling umbrella — is being installed on Yonge Street next to the downtown site of Ryerson University's new student learning centre. The Urban Umbrella also is being adopted by developer Great Gulf for its One Bloor condominium project at the corner of Yonge Street and Bloor Street.
