    Our series of Growth To Watch For articles from January through March of this year proved quite popular, so we want to make them easily accessible to you throughout the year, anytime that you might want an overview of an area, or a quick way of finding adjacent developments to something else that you're following.

    This thread, therefore, has been "stickied" at the top of our Buildings section for high visibility: while the Growth stories gradually drop further and further from our front page, you'll still be able to access them quickly here.

    First, a map, showing the 21 areas we broke Toronto down into, and the paths we took through them.

    GTWFOverallMap1280.

    After starting immediately west of the core, the first batch cover the western portion of the city:
    1. Entertainment District
    2. King West, Queen West, and More
    3. South Etobicoke
    4. Etobicoke Centre and Bloor West
    5. Dupont, the Junction, and St. Clair West
    6. North Etobicoke & Weston
    7. York to Yorkdale to York Mills

    The second third of the articles basically cover north and the east of the centre:
    8. Downsview & York University
    9. North York Centre and Willowdale
    10. North Scarborough
    11. Central Scarborough
    12. Beaches, Leslieville, & The Danforth
    13. East York and Don Mills
    14. Midtown—Eglinton to St. Clair

    And now we dive right back into the core:
    15. Bloor-Yorkville and Rosedale
    16. Corktown-Regent Park-Cabbagetown
    17. Jarvis and Church Corridors
    18. Downtown Toronto North
    19. U of T, West of Downtown
    20. Downtown Toronto Core
    21. Toronto's Central Waterfront

    With the finale in the Downtown core and the denouement on the central waterfront, we leave off walking into the sunset in the Port Lands, and Toronto's future…

    Poetic, no?

    Anyway, we are happy to get feedback in this thread about anything related to the articles!

    We're considering it. We figured there'd be a lot more Crosstown to check out later this year!

    I should have added a link above to our 2017 wrap-up article as well, which counts a number of things, like how many office buildings are proposed, how many supertalls, how many mid-rises, etc.

    We should probably count up the number of tower-in-the-park sites with infill proposals on them next…
