    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    There's a lot of garbage being built, but every now and then there's an absolute grand slam. This is one of those hits, and the feeling of seeing it materialise is sublime.

    Toronto | Clover on Yonge, The | 148m | 44s | Cresford | architectsAlliance

    It's a real breath of fresh air when a prominent building is nicely cladding. It heals the soul.

    Yayyyyy another flat glass facade at street level :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Toronto | Ryerson: Science Building & Student Residence | 156m | 41s | Ryerson University | Henning Larsen

    The shadowing study only needs to show that there won't be excess shadows on the places protected by the Official Plan, being parks, public squares, heritage conservation districts (in some cases) and others I'm forgetting. Private residences and other towers have no right to sunlight, as those...

    Stackt Container Market (28 Bathurst St, future park)

    I'm really happy to hear that they're going to bring in artists to paint them. The greyness of it was my only real gripe. Can't wait to see this in the summer!

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    Those bridges are absolutely stunning and elegant. If they get built as presented I don't even care what the rest of the buildings look like! :Do_O

    Toronto | MEC Queen Street (Mountain Equipment Coop) | 21m | 3s | Parallax | Sweeny &Co

    That eastern facade is embarrassing and insulting.

    Toronto | Ryerson University: Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex | 106m | 27s | Ryerson University | Perkins + Will

    The orange colour at street level is a breath of fresh air. I've been hoping bold colour would catch on for a while. Picasso, Pace, and now this are proof that grey is not the way!

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

    You must be really fun at parties.

    Toronto | Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts | 156m | 45s | Daniels | RAW Design

    We need a moratorium against that grey spandrel. It is soul sucking and looks cheap from day one.

    Toronto | Tower at Pier 27 | 115m | 35s | Cityzen | architectsAlliance

    Too bad they didn't stick with the white cladding and spandrel from the previous phases. It would have looked much sharper.

    Toronto | Minto Westside | 69m | 20s | Minto Group | Wallman Architects

    It feels very heavy, could have benefited from a mid-level setback or two.

    Toronto | Grid Condos | 158m | 50s | CentreCourt | IBI Group

    Aura was great on paper. It's had all the potential in the world, it just stumbled and crashed before the finish line. The execution is painful in some places, and the underground is one of the worst urban experiences ever presented. Sometimes the initial promise of its greatness shines through...
