For those who may be interested, the Unreal engine in now available for free. While this is mostly used for game development, it is also a great tool for creating architectural renderings and flythroughs.
Here is an example:

NimbyTect Neighbourhood 2.0 is back! While the streetwall doctor gets his car tuned here monthly--what a ****in hypocrite--his nimby patient wants it towed far south of lakeshore....
To be remedied with some JUNKshun NimbyTecture
unreal engine indeed!
Which means the streetwall doctor will own a P1 sometime in the next century....
Some nimbies dig for gold; here they're digging the pink sheets!
Others may shun the junk
And go for street cred
The only thing keeping the Duke happy is the lack of futures
Any options left?
Solution: Hire NimbyTect duh!
Needs a redesign asap!
Danforth and Playter update: just what the Danforth needs: black brick
I have plans for 80% of the block east towards Jackman--utter rubbish that shall come down to the nimby law!
Directly across Playter Blvd from that beastly black brick thing above is another classic Danforth strip of rubbish:
Why not insert something slightly worse like
Danforth & Playter Lofts perhaps?
Modest, simple 6 storey streetwall.
A few more angles before I find more nimbies to bully
Walking up Spadina past all those cool Toronto architects in their old warehouse offices made me wonder: What if the NimbyTect had a staff of 45? And where would we fit in? Something "simple" and new like Mr Clewes would approve?
Simple and shiny just like an iphone or galaxy s6 edge. Our number: 325-333 Spadina Avenue.
JUNKshun remix: brick edition
I beg your pardon but 325-333 Spadina Avenue is rubbish:
(Actually the entire block has gotta go--including the LCBO and the 2 buildings to the south)
NimbyTect's made in chinatown is one possible solution:
Going to try to complete the block
Goodbye LCBO--and welcome to another NimbyTect Made in Chinatown episode:
starring a ten storey residential building
a bunch of slightly stale nimbies
And one sober NimbyTect.
