    Toronto | PJ Condos | 156.96m | 48s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Looks like John Street is completely blocked? Is this part of the John Street corridor revitalization ? I can’t seem to find the thread for that project here on UT?

    1233 Yonge @ Woodlawn (Plaza + Firm Capital, ?s, ?)

    That is above the subway line. Nothing has ever been developed there to my knowledge.

    1233 Yonge @ Woodlawn (Plaza + Firm Capital, ?s, ?)

    I lived here for three years. Definitely not heritage on the interior. :) With that being said, it is a subtle, but elegant, building that gives Yonge a sense of place.

    When do they plan to close that part of Lake Shore Blvd on the NW corner of this site adjacent to the flagship tower 1 currently being excavated?

    When will it be decided if this building will remain at approximately 309m versus allowing the height increase application to the 339m range? Thanks.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    I’m not advocating having a glass roof but if we did go with one, having a retractable roof that is open during the winter to ensure it does not become compromised from snow build up could be an option. The roof is only needed during the baseball season to stay warm and to avoid rain delays...

    Infographics - Future Toronto Skyline

    University Avenue (History and Future Redesign)
