    Toronto | 71 Talara Drive | 84.4m | 27s | Tribute | Turner Fleischer

    I’m surprised the stretch of houses just east of the NY place towers have survived this long.

    Toronto | Square One District | ?m | 65s | Oxford Properties | Hariri Pontarini

    Width of these roads look discouraging, not sure if the pedestrian realm will be as vibrant as advertised. Would one LRT line and the bus network be sufficient to service this neighbourhood?

    Toronto | Scala | 61.57m | 18s | Tridel | Wallman Architects

    This is impressive. There's real development opportunity along Leslie here between Shepherd and Finch (on the west side). I have to say though, it's a mistake for them not to include commercial spaces at the base of the property (or spaces that could be converted to commercial in the future as...

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

    If this proposal makes it through in some shape or form resembling this, I hope it sets a precedent for future projects in the area to continue these laneways / mews.

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I've always thought that the development of the Southern corners of Yonge and Bloor were an opportunity to create a new and expansive concourse level for the subway. I wonder if anything of that nature would make its way into this project?

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    I wouldn't be opposed to them building atop of the Dominion building if they designed the extension to look the exact same as the base (I.e used stone / same materials, carried over the design elements).

    Toronto | Gehry Towers | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    I hope so. I haven't warmed up to this latest iteration.

    Toronto | One Bloor East | 257.24m | 76s | Great Gulf | Hariri Pontarini

    Is it though? I've heard so many rumours to date. It's hard to believe this wasn't snatched up as soon as the boom began.

    Toronto | Station Condos on the Subway | 51.51m | 14s | Brandy Lane | CMV

    That's a lot of empty space behind it.

    Toronto | Regent Park Central Park & Aquatic Centre | ?m | ?s | TCHC | MJMA

    What's the next phase after this? Edit: Found it.

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

    Weren't they started at roughly the same time?

    Toronto | 55 Sheppard East | 45.41m | 14s

    A heck of a situation no matter which way you slice it. My rationale for making that plot of land available has to do with its location relative to three subway stations. An argument can be made however that the Yonge subway line doesn't need the added traffic. This seems like a poor...

    Toronto | Wellesley on the Park | 194.15m | 60s | Lanterra | KPMB

    Great photos. I really hope that this kick starts a reformation of the Yonge and Wellesley intersection. That west side could use some work.
