    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    Looks great! Those plastic bins though 🤦‍♀️ I swear, this cheap-as-muck city never misses a chance to foot-gun itself

    TMU: Law School (101-111 Gerrard St E, Ryerson, ?s, ?)

    What? You wouldn't want to buy a City University of Toronto sweatshirt with "See You Next Tuesday" printed on the back?

    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    There's been a similar "urban marsh" at Corktown Common for years and I'm fairly certain nobody's died from tropical diseases as a result.

    I dunno, I just can't unsee it:

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT: Oakwood Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | IBI Group

    Toronto | York University: Joan and Martin Goldfarb Gallery | ?m | 3s | York University | Hariri Pontarini

    Toronto | The Bentway (was Under Gardiner) | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    In addition to the other, more substantive critiques, I'd just like to make sure we don't miss that 5468796's proposal brings us "Bent Buddies", which sounds like the world's lamest LGBTQ dating app.

    Toronto | GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Building the span in steel means it can be lifted into place in-between CP trains, without interrupting freight operations. Doing it in concrete would mean setting up forms, rebar work, pouring, curing, tearing down forms, all of which is so much more disruptive I assume it would be a...

    Toronto | 906 Yonge Street | 113.87m | 33s | Gupta | IBI Group

    I guess they're not going with CanadianNational's truly inspired idea to put the mock tudor on top of the tower, like a hat. To each their own...
