Toronto is undergoing rapid change in its built form, particularly south of Bloor Street. Today's Photo of the Day was posted to our Forum by member Jasonzed, and illustrates the contrast between the stable neighbourhoods of Rosedale and Moore Park to the north and the towers south of Bloor. Stable nighbourhoods are areas of the city that are protected from major development out of context with existing neighbourhood form. Rosedale and Moore Park are dominated by single family homes, usually no more than 3 storeys in height. The area south of Bloor is characterized by mid-rise and high-rise structures, and is quite diverse in its built form. This explains why the background is mostly trees while plenty of towers are visible in the foreground, such as X Condos, CoutureCasa, and Aura at College Park.
