    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    I think the Entertainment District BIA felt it had to respond if only to reeducate its members on King Street West who told the Star they didn't have a King Street BIA. A fact BTW that the Star report without any factual clarification. Of course they do not have a King Street BIA, they are in...

    Toronto | The One | 308.6m | 85s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Forgive me as I have not been a regular contributor. The Bloor East Neighbourhood Association (BENA)* along with GYRA (Greater Yorkville Residents Association) and others were part of the City facilitated working group on The One, along with adjacent landowners and two nearby condos. The first...

    Future Toronto 3d model

    Great work. I like the pastel palette. Also interesting to see the FedEx site at Lower Sherbourne and Queen's Quay and the Silos + 3C Waterfront added in. There will likely be a tower to the east of the silos, and likely three towers at 3C Waterfront (toward Cherry). The Fed Ex site is zoned...

    Toronto | Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts | 156.05m | 45s | Daniels | RAW Design

    Again what Daniels told us in January was rental in the eastern tower, not student residences. George Brown has just built a student residence in the West Don Lands that will be used for the Pan Am Games and then be transferred to GBC.

    Ten York Street Condos | 224.02m | 65s | Tridel | Wallman Architects COMPLETE

    The railway tracks were all at grade originally. Raising them was considered (at the time) a measure to improve access to the waterfront. View corridors were not considered of course because the harbour was commercial / industrial.

    Toronto | Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts | 156.05m | 45s | Daniels | RAW Design

    To continue the Sugar Beach theme northwest. Smile. It would be nice to see renderings with the Waterfront Innovation Centre in its place. Instead these still show the larger "hill" at the north end of Sugar Beach, which of course will vanish and be replaced by the large public stairway and...

    Toronto | Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85.04m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    Excellent points, heartily concur but it's not a actually a "condo development" - all rental. 50% 2 - 3 bedrooms and some 4 bedrooms.

    Toronto | Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts | 156.05m | 45s | Daniels | RAW Design

    Indeed! The LRT (or Streetcar LRT) is necessary. And 3C Waterfront is going to be coming on stream in the next couple of years so ...

    Toronto | Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts | 156.05m | 45s | Daniels | RAW Design

    And lest we not forget the LCBO site which the province is selling. Add that to 1 Yonge and you're looking at a new east downtown by the lake, a rival for "South Core" to the west. It's likely the LCBO redevelopment will include office uses as well as a residential. 1 Yonge proposes to add an...

    Yes it is looking more like April for the crane removal.

    Toronto | East Harbour | ?m | ?s | Cadillac Fairview | O.M.A.

    Indeed I did. :) As First Gulf made clear this is a long-term project. They know there are 20+ office buildings in various states of construction, approval, application or proposal, between Spadina and Parliament, south of Queen. So their planning is for office demand beyond that. So it's...

    Toronto | Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85.04m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    The real mystery is ... The real mystery is why urbantoronto.ca isn't featuring this as a front page story? Smile. Seriously the retail concept, as others have observed, is bold, necessary and innovative. I also think many radically underestimate how much density is required to support...
