    You mean claustrophobic, I think? Anyone with real vertigo issues ikely wouldn't want to be living in a condo tower in the first place - certainly not in the upper floors, anyway.

    There's no unwritten law that says markets have to be housed in pedestrian buildings. A modern urban farmers market is a mix of many sensibilities. I think the regular vendors would welcome a space...

    My thinking too. The rising cost of real estate in the core is going to ensure that people will learn to make do with less.

    Quite the small floorplate, for sure. Might make the tower exceedingly...

    He did indeed. The dramatic lessening of gallery space is one thing, but the bigger issue is how the new design meets the street... and in that regard I agree fully with JBM. I'm hoping that...

    Nice to hear I got it exactly backwards! Then again, that's your opinion, much as you'd like to pretend otherwise. Yeah, the AGO has been busy tapping into popular culture - it's been forced to do so...

    Can't say I agree at all and fail to grasp the reason for your vehemence. Your assurance that Mirvish could never mount a blockbuster show of his works flies in the face of reality. If the AGO can...

    Well said! Too much hand-wringing and moaning about how this city supposedly shoots itself in the proverbial foot, every time. Too much anxiety and self-loathing. It feels like some kind of weird...

    We always knew this thing was a project in flux, that it would evolve over time. It's going to look different yet again and the final...

    Colour me optimisitic. This feels less daunting and overwhelming than the imposing trio of towers tightly clustered together. I look forward to more articulation and refinement of the design. As it...

    That, I gather, was the problem with the earlier attempts to make a go of the project; insufficiently deep pockets. Or too much ambition with too little substance. Or something.

    You mean "a lot," I take it. And I agree. Sure, it may well be that the latest bid will amount to yet another ghost of an effort. But I still maintain that the thing has to succeed eventually. I...

    Well, considering the unfortunate, rather checkered history of this project, one hopes they've already figured all that stuff out and are now ready to actually complete the thing.

    I dunno. You may be right CN Tower but I can also think of downsizing couples who have unloaded their homes but still want the urban lifestyle and a pedestrian-friendly, amenities-rich environment...

    I have a feeling this version will actually fly. The odds are in its favour.

    Along with Oben Flats and the project slated for the south side of Queen East near Greenwood, there's some buzz...

    Niiiice. Bodes well for the project, don't it?

    I wish 'em luck. Be great if the thing were to finally get finished and become occupied.

    Looks great in that render. Certainly would brighten up that corner considerably.

    The strip is gentrifying and I'm happy to see the sidewalks thronging with ever-larger groups of people. In a way it reminds me of Queen West in the late 70s, particularly what the stretch between...

    Couldn't agree more. It's a whole lot of carnival showmanship while the same old shells are merely being shuffled around for the umpteenth time.

    What does that mean, exactly? What does Fletcher want for the area? Sounds pretty non-commital thus far.

    I suspect the group opposing this is the vocal minority. Most locals I've talked to about...

    Hey Tewder, if it's going to happen it's going to happen. Yeah, I like it as it is - so sue me. I'm just hoping it's not some overwrought monstrosity imposed on an already lovely, tranquil park....
