Also, just wanted to share that the tiles used on the ground are matte and do really well in the cold (this area is heated but snow would still come in, the doors had snow frozen on them). It was surprisingly not slippery at all!
A long-departed friend of the family was a graphic artist and letterer, having designed some of the most famous logos of some internationally-renowned Canadian companies. He even designed a logo for a small company I started in the 1980s, to use on my business cards and stationary, and at the time I gave him my ideas, he explained all about leading and kerning, and he also mentioned that it’s a dying art form. Good memories.
Je suis allé faire un tour hier, j’ai pris des photos.
Il n’y a toujours pas aucun gros logo du REM nul part. Bon c’est pas ça qui va empêcher d’ouvrir mais j’ai hâte de les voir! (Je parle d’un panneau lumineux comme celui du métro ou de quoi de similaire)
Aussi, je remarque que le tunnel d’accès est quand même assez encombré de matériaux de construction et de machinerie. Le pavé est en place mais il en manque à certains endroits, probablement pour y mettre du mobilier ou je-ne-sais-trop-quoi. Il doit y en avoir pour quelques jours de travaux.
There’s also a broken seat (from all the construction vehicles that would park on the pedestrian plaza before it opened), I hope they get it fixed before the opening of the REM, because it would be a shame if that’s one of people’s first impressions of it (it’s just a single seat but after all the delays people would notice that)
