    Toronto | 2150 Lake Shore | 215.75m | 70s | First Capital | Allies and Morrison

    Yup, I do have photos of the bike path beside Westlake in the Westlake thread! The concrete section along the culvert would need a railing along side it, while I've love to see the rest of the concrete covered in more impressive graffiti, not just crappy tags. 42

    No. 'The existing trail' in gray under the Gardiner is nothing more than a dirt path, not the quality needed to expand the system. If the TRCA is funding all the red bits, great, get it built, but funding is needed to tie this area in better to the northwest. Pedestrian and cyclist...

    Toronto | 1718 Bayview | 31.48m | 9s | Gairloch | BDP Quadrangle

    My take is that work-live units are more in demand due to the current situation. With so many retail units opening up on main streets as small businesses struggle, at the same time so many more people are working from home who may want to host clients. They are better served by ground floor...

    Exactly, why in the world would they be squandering the redevelopment potential here? Totally bizarre proposal. 42

    Toronto | Wellington House | 57.3m | 17s | Lamb Development | architectsAlliance

    If this is a section that is to remain, then rotted roof tiling will have to come off before corrective measures can be taken to fix this area. 42

    No, I do not mean the section north of Lake Shore that has been built, I mean the section under the rail corridor and the Gardiner that has not been built. The path should ultimately continue north up the creek to at least Berry Road, and improvements at its south end should link it better into...

    Dagnabbit, I would have liked to have seen a few million in the budget for the completion of the Mimico bike trail too… Pedestrian and cycling connections need to be improved to this area from the northwest. 42

    Or Kone Elevators. Anyone else? 42

    Toronto | The Waverley | 57.09m | 15s | Fitzrovia | Kirkor Architects

    Huh. I kinda like that shiny, corrugated metal entrance frame/canopy/thing. It's got texture, sheen, a little industrial cool to it. Building just went up a notch for me. (Score reserved until it's complete, but this is better.) 42

    …or possibly the stop bath. 42

    Toronto | 65 Raglan | 92m | 28s | Camrost-Felcorp | IBI Group

    It's an abnormally long city block on Raglan, and by allowing far quicker access to the bus stops on Bathurst and the walk down Tichester to the north entrance to St Clair West subway station, they're improving the lives of many people on Raglan. At the same time, a pile more people will be...

    The glass supplier would be on the hook for replacing the glass with the correct type. 42

    Toronto | The Rosedale on Bloor | 185.92m | 55s | Gupta | IBI Group

    What's going up here is noticeably superior to Design Haus cladding, or Aura, or any number of recent buildings that are getting a strip torn off them, Strada for example. If you cannot see the difference then you're not particularly detail oriented: mullions do not run through the wall sections...
