    It’s boring but I appreciate that they went ORANGE and not orange with those porcelain panels.

    Toronto | 733 Mt Pleasant | 92m | 27s | Rockport Group | Wallman Architects

    I agree with most of what you've said, however I would argue that the "unique character of mount pleasant" isn't that unique at all, and it resembles literally dozens of cutesy 2-3 storey main streets found all over the city, and the province. I'd say the interaction between old, new, short and...

    110 Bloor West ( 3 storey front addition and interior renos, Quadrangle )

    Oh no! My local homesense/winners! This stretch is v tired looking though so I can't say I'm surprised they're looking to renovate

    "dark brown textured precast" Well that's a bummer. The one redeeming feature were the brick frames that would have balanced out the amount of spandrel, but now I'm worried it's just going to be an earth toned blob.

    Toronto | 100 Queens Quay at Sugar Wharf | 117.34m | 25s | Menkes | B+H

    I think the design is very boring but they used high quality glass and it seems well detailed. I think the initial design with the one storey pavilion/podium was a lot more elegant and the new design with the cantilevered 3rd storey is a bit goofy looking. I would give it a 75% as of now, but...

    Can confirm they have been actively drilling and sampling over the past few days.

    I have struggled with the ethics regarding the level of fame Integral house received. Yeah, it’s beautiful but I personally would have trouble accepting a commission or fee knowing my client made a fortune indepting hundreds of students in persuit or higher education. The cost of integral...

    Toronto | Ace Hotel Toronto | 45m | 13s | Carbon Hospitality | Shim-Sutcliffe

    I'd love to see them tackle an affordable housing project but it seems like they exclusively work with super wealthy clients.

    Toronto | 1886 Eglinton Avenue West | 30.5m | 8s | Clifton Blake | Studio JCI

    This is likely the same developer as the proposal to the west, as they're currently using the adjacent retail units as a construction office for that project.

    Toronto | Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    Was having a look through the plans from the development application site and I hadn’t realized that one of the facades would be using glass block, which is a great tie in to Westbank’s King project. I’m wondering if they’ll be using the same kind of system/blocks here, and if it will be a good...

    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 312.5m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Do I spy some cladding at the base of the tower on the north side? Looks like there might be some on the same floor facing west.
