    Toronto | Ontario Line: Osgoode Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    There is a connection into the Opera House already… although it could use an upgrade: no escalators. Anything there would eat into its little forecourt too though, and that's quite busy on show nights. The best answer here would be to get University Avenue rebuilt with the centre islands moved...

    Toronto | 4674 Kingston Road | 41.4m | 13s | NJS Capital | BDP Quadrangle

    The City asks for a minimum of 40% "family-sized" units, usually coming in 30% two-bedroom suites and 10% three-bedroom suites. In this case, the developer is proposing 10% three-bedrooms, and 15% two-bedrooms. The reason that two bedrooms are low here? Particularly high is the number of studio...

    Toronto | Warden Station Redevelopment | 13.11m | 2s | TTC | SAI

    The plan is to get rid of the silo bus bays, reduce their footprint within what will be a better "island" style bus terminal anyway, and open up more land at the fairly expansive site for housing and other development. 42

    Toronto | Eaton Centre (Ongoing Renewal) | ?m | ?s | Cadillac Fairview | Zeidler

    The missing greenery should come back to both malls, and here especially where the new skylight is making the place feel more outdoorsy. I get this this will be an unpopular opinion with some, (and I agree that the other changes at the Eaton Centre have mostly been to its detriment) BUT I like...

    Thanks! If you have a chance to photograph it, we'd love some pics! 42

    Yup. Such is the ephemeral nature of these works I suppose… 42

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    Oh, you are good! Combined with reading a number of posts back and a few more forward, yes @400WellingtonGuy spells it out! 42

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    I have a vague memory of David Pontarini specifically citing Victoria Square as a precedent, and that they toured it way back in the visioning phase. No fixed date, but generally Spring 2023. 42

    St Lawrence Centre Redevelopment (?, ?, ?)

    They've floated the idea of a total replacement… but maybe one of the teams will have a plan to salvage some of it? I'd be surprised though, the City wants to add quite a bit more functionality and flexibility into the site… 42

    Toronto | 4099 Erin Mills Parkway | 38.6m | 10s | Queenscorp | Turner Fleischer

    A tiny bit of retail at ground level. Enough so that people who walk to the existing plaza could find at least convenience items? Looks to me like the car dependent neighbourhood around it would only get more car dependent. 42

    Toronto | E2 at E Place | 156.56m | 46s | Capital Developments | TACT Architecture

    So very close to finishing up… but I'm thinking it won't quite be done enough to hit the year end poll. Anyone able to add more photos of ground condition or overall look in the next few days to help finalize this decision?! 42

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    With only one rendering showing the west side, I had totally forgotten there would be inlets on it too, and until RM's post above where it's obvious, I assumed all the inlet construction shots were of the east side. Well, we get 'em on both sides: 42

    Toronto | Canvas on the Rouge | ?m | 6s | Flato Developments

    Anyone able to get up-to-date shots of this building? We would love some for our year-end poll, thanks! 42

    Toronto | Mirabella Condominiums | 120m | 38s | Mirabella Dev Corp | Scott Shields

    If anyone is able to get some up-to-date photos of this development from just enough distance to get a full view — across Lake Shore to the south I suppose — that would be great! We need pics for our year-end poll. Thanks! 42

    Toronto | 2150 Lake Shore | 215.75m | 67s | First Capital | Allies and Morrison

    In advance of the first permanent new structures on this site, a big-top is going to be landing here for a few months this spring: We've been told that Cirque du Soleil's return to Toronto will be on this site, with KOOZA playing here from April 7 to June 18. Good use of the land prior to the...
