    100 Metre List

    Where is the most recent spreadsheet for this? I clicked on the 100m list link on page 1 of this thread and it shows YSL still as being 343m which has long been updated.

    Toronto | One Bloor East | 257m | 76s | Great Gulf | Hariri Pontarini

    Not sure about cost but here is a description and a couple more images of this piece of art... One Bloor's dynamic, undulating facade with an accompanying sculpture that appears to be set in perpetual motion. Set to be installed this fall, two 31-metre-tall stacks of metal tubing will sway back...

    This is what the public art is supposed to look like I believe... Source: Great Gulf

    York Street Park (Waterfront Toronto/City of Toronto)

    Thanks @smnlng - I'd seen that heart before but wasn't clear what it was. Here is an image of the 'floating heart' suspended over the pool....

    York Street Park (Waterfront Toronto/City of Toronto)

    There seems to be additional renderings of this park on Claude Cormier's website (https://www.claudecormier.com/en/projet/love-park/). I like the image below in particular. It would be cool that in addition to the 'pool' being heart shaped that there be a small red heart shaped art piece of some...

    Toronto | YSL Residences - Yonge Street Living (383 Yonge) | 299m | 85s | Cresford | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    It appears by the render that the two more modern looking buildings on Yonge will replace the four buildings in the red box in the image below. (Image Credit: Google Street View)

    Rees Park (318 Queens Quay, City of Toronto)

    I am so pumped for this and Love Park. Rees Ridge will be a destination I predict with great sight lines of the city and the water. Kudos to you MetroMan for pushing for a substantial water feature as well. Cheers.

    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 307m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Want to make sure I got this correctly... The excavation taking place in the previous pics is for the 'Prestige' tower which is 'Tower 3' and which I've highlighted in the red box below?? Will the next phase be tower 1 which is the tallest building right on Yonge Street or will it be Tower 2...

    Toronto | 160 Front West (was 156 Front West) | 240m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    Do you mean MG-1 and MG-2 as in Mirvish Gehry with GG being Great Gulf?

    Toronto | 16 York | 155m | 32s | Cadillac Fairview | architectsAlliance

    They seemed to have slowed down the pace a bit completing 'just' one floor in 13 days based on Sikandar's last two pics. They seemed to be previously on a floor per week pace on the levels above the main floor.

    Toronto | Cumberland at Yorkville Plaza | 125m | 40s | Camrost-Felcorp | WZMH

    Looking at this photo by Jimmy, it might have been nice to have the architectural feature located at the top of the north side of this development on the west side instead to play off of the setbacks of 150 Bloor West shown in the foreground.

    Rees Park (318 Queens Quay, City of Toronto)

    A big yes to Rees Ridge. I love the concept of the overlook and the sight lines it provides towards the water, the Gardiner and skyline. If only they could extend it as a pedestrian bridge over the Gardiner to Roundhouse Park..

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    And that ACC sign will be dated in 11 days. #ScotiabankArena

    Toronto | 57 Spadina | 121m | 36s | Tricon House | Diamond Schmitt

    By the renders, it appears none of that brick is being integrated into the new development which is too bad.
