With another busy month of city-building, transportation, and real estate talk now behind us, we round up February 2017's hottest stories, dataBase files, and Forum threads.
Our Top Ten News Stories
This month, one of Toronto's most attention-grabbing projects in recent years was broken here on UrbanToronto, with Cresford Developments' plans to build a 98-storey tower at Yonge and Gerrard leading the way as February's most read story. In second place, the Beaches, Leslieville, and Danforth edition of our ongoing Growth to Watch For series proved a popular instalment, while coverage of the plans to re-make Pearson International Airport rounded out the top three.
Our Top Ten dataBase Files
February's most popular dataBase file proved to be Pemberton's 'Time and Space Condos,' a project previously known by its address at 177 Front Street East. That project was followed by Cresford's newly announced 98-storey YSL tower, with the recently announced Plaza Midtown taking third place.

Our Top Ten Forum Threads
Our most popular Forum thread was the 218-page discussion of Sun Life Financial Tower & Harbour Plaza Residences. With the project's twin—and tall—architectsAlliance-designed residential towers now making their mark on the skyline, the project is of obvious interest to photographers and architecture enthusiasts. Discussions of the 76-storey One Bloor East and the ongoing Union Station Revitalization round out the top three.
