    The YMCA at Wimbledon is a tired building that the Y wants to replace (see Google photo below). The YMCA on Grosvenor is a flagship location in excellent condition. It has great design and meets the...

    For lease sign up at 7/24. So much for Starbucks moving in.

    Sales office buildings have been plopped down. They need some cladding so they don't look like a wasteland.

    I completely agree. The building could have been saved twenty years ago but now you'd have to take it apart and reassemble it because it's in a slow state of collapse.

    Save the NW and SE corner...

    Because netflix has a more limited selection. Online is the future, but it's still not perfect.

    There are plenty of buildings that don't get built for one reason or another when the market slows. 50 Wellesley comes to mind. The previous building (#46) was knocked down but construction delayed...

    Great pictures! I don't know that I love this building, but I have to admire the way they propped up the heritage house over the hole.

    The new fine food store is great, a good addition to the street. I think they will do well.

    I rent from 7/24 regularly. I hope they don't move far. Proximity is one reason I frequent them....

    Oh one odd thing. 155 visitor bicycle spots? I love cycling but that seems a tad high.

    I see nothing to celebrate here. I live at Church and Alexander so the impact to me is minimal, but the south tower will be completely out of place in the neighborhood. Twenty or thirty stories would...

    Oh wow. He was just quoted in the paper as saying they were doing better and were going to be there for a long time.

    A good bakery would be welcome. Pusateris recently switched from Ace breads which is owned by loblaws to St. John's. I know some people like St. John's but I can't stand their bread. My visits to...

    Agreed. I love cheese and live across the straight but rarely shopped there due to price. I like to buy from cheese shops, but this was too high priced.

    Some day Apple needs to get a larger store at the Eaton Centre. The current one is tiny for the traffic and compared to newer locations. It's almost like they're waiting for the perfect location in...

    What's up,with the lights on top of the Met condos? A year ago, the round LED light tower would slowly change from colour to colour. It broke during the winter, getting stuck on one colour for weeks...

    Thanks for the book reference, I'll look for it.

    The hospital is a maze. See the infiltration site article below. I think it was written during the construction of the Cardinal Carter wing, which...

    Does anybody know where to find information when each of the wings were built? The wikipedia entry is weak, the St. Michael's history page on its own site is short on facts, and I haven't been able...

    I like it overall. I wish the podium was brick to complement the NW and SW corners. Would like to see a north-facing render, too.

    I could live with the markers, but I hate the huge electrical boxes that they installed a few feet away (really, you need a box that big for a single lit pole?). But to make it worse, they just...

    I doubt that the downtown Y will be any less crowded after any of the new locations open. It's not like somebody who lives in one of the new condos between Bloor and College near Yonge are going to...

    That's too bad about that Sobeys. I shop there frequently but I'd never go to the College Park location as there are other stores closer to me, such as Metro, Loblaws, and Pusateri. I agree it hasn't...
