    Toronto | 401 Bay Street (formerly Simpson Tower) | 144m | 33s | Cadillac Fairview | WZMH

    @Contra that's why this thing is such a mess. If CF was consistent throughout the renovations and used the south facing cladding for the entire project, this thing would actually look half decent. Instead we're getting some kind of mishmash hogwash non-sense. You can always count of CF to find...

    Toronto | Four Eleven King Condominiums | ?m | 42s | Great Gulf | KPMB

    Unfortunately right now it seems like for every 1 of these, we get another 10 piles of junk that get constructed elsewhere. The ratio is probably improving slightly to 2:10 but that's still an abysmal record.

    Hamilton: General Service Discussion

    I'd like to welcome the HSR for getting their first foot into the 21st century. Job well done on their end! I'm curious to know this as well, you've been upvoted

    Toronto | Four Eleven King Condominiums | ?m | 42s | Great Gulf | KPMB

    Overall this is a pretty stunning design. The only thing i'd nitpick on is the way the building meets the King/Spadina intersection, something just seems off with it.

    Toronto | West Block Est. 1928, The LakeShore, and The LakeFront | 131m | 41s | Loblaw Companies | architectsAlliance

    I should've specified here; aesthetic wise, Concord destroyed this neighborhood with their bland and soullessly designed buildings for the most part. CityPlace functions 100X better than Liberty Village ever will. LV is just an outright mess.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    I should've been more clear with that. I meant to say that the current asinine situation with the TR side destination signs would be equivalent to having new streetcars where their side destination displays couldn't display the proper terminus of a route, while the front destination sign could...

    Toronto | West Block Est. 1928, The LakeShore, and The LakeFront | 131m | 41s | Loblaw Companies | architectsAlliance

    Concord's new slogan should be: Concord, destroying neighbourhoods in Canada one at a time est. 1987

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Why the TTC was dumb enough in the first place to sign off on a limited capability side destination system is beyond me. I mean, did they not know that they have other locations where trains short-turn on the off occasion (ie: Lawrence, Union, St.Clair)? This whole situation is akin to having...

    Toronto | Islington Terrace | 145m | 45s | Tridel | Kirkor Architects

    I have no idea how Tridel is so hit or miss with developments, but this one has turned out great.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Well you're not wrong on this point, after all it was a student working at the TTC who came up with the idea to change the bottom of the Onestop displays to show the subway line roundel with destination information. Because of his genius, we're not stuck seeing: "Next train...5 mins" or "Next...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Great stuff, looking forward to seeing how screwed up the destination signs will get when there are short turns!

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Especially embarrassing considering the fact that they've had numerous months to solve the issues with the destination signs and they still cant even get it right.

    It wasnt just you, I bought this one up like popcorn.

    Toronto | 544 King West | 52m | 12s | Allied | Hariri Pontarini

    This is definitely the worst proposal i've seen Allied put forward, and it's not even close. They could do much better than this and i'm not really sure what their thinking with this one is. However even though this is a weak proposal, it would probably turn out better than at least 80% of the...

    Wealthsimple Stadium (Ad Company Geniuses, 0s, Août Poisson Architects)

    BlogTO...one of the most clickbait websites currently in existence on the World Wide Web. They should create an article titled: "How we became one of the pioneers of fake news".
