    Toronto | Wellesley on the Park | 194m | 60s | Lanterra | KPMB

    It's completely unacceptable in a work place PERIOD. This is something that 12 year old boys think is ok. That some adult men have to be walked through this basic thing is astonishing.... not to mention disturbing.

    Toronto | E Condos | 196m | 58s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli

    I assumed that was just the kitchen. :oops:

    Toronto | West Block Est. 1928, The LakeShore, and The LakeFront | 131m | 41s | Loblaw Companies | architectsAlliance

    The only way to get developers to stop building garbage is for people to stop buying it.

    Toronto | College Park Revitalization with Barbara Ann Scott Skate Trail | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | RAW Design

    Hopefully that skating loop will be open in time for Christmas.

    Toronto | West Block Est. 1928, The LakeShore, and The LakeFront | 131m | 41s | Loblaw Companies | architectsAlliance

    Same but one can hang on to the hope that the exterior will be upgraded in 30-50 years. I waited 20 years for a nice building in that spot; what's another 50 years?

    Toronto | Social at Church + Dundas | 165m | 52s | Pemberton | RAW Design

    The affection many Torontonians have for hideous ramshackle blight in the name of 'character' is astonishing. You may have an affinity for it but it's a huge stretch to expect others to. I want better architecture just like the next person but I'm not going to defend the indefensible...

    Toronto | Manulife Centre Podium and Streetscape Renewal | 10m | 2s | Manulife Real Estate | MdeAS Architects

    The way it met the street was problematic but this reno doesn't work for me either.

    Toronto | Social at Church + Dundas | 165m | 52s | Pemberton | RAW Design

    1 block I hoped no tourist would have to experience now gone, another 10,000+ blocks to go.

    Toronto | E Condos | 196m | 58s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli

    Agree. That said, they are the only 2 towers I like in that photo.

    Toronto | Dundas Square Gardens | 156m | 50s | Gupta | IBI Group

    I'm digging the girth. It's heaviness and scale anchors the corner.

    Toronto | Social at Church + Dundas | 165m | 52s | Pemberton | RAW Design

    When one upgrades to something nicer it instantly highlights the ugly around it. Pace, Grid, and Dundas Gardens have done the same to this strip of street. I'm glad this is being re-developed but it's sometimes over whelming how much ugly remains. There's easily another 10,000 other lots just...

    Toronto | King Blue by Greenland | 156m | 48s | Greenland | IBI Group

    That's a bit like celebrating the best looking Tim Hortons outlet.

    Toronto | Artists' Alley | 126m | 39s | Lanterra | Hariri Pontarini

    Why do they even bother making renderings and why do we bother looking at them? If they're fabulous there's no way that they're going to build it.

    I heard it was temporary.

    Toronto | 7028 Yonge | 213m | 65s | Gupta | IBI Group

    I doubt people in Vaughan have vastly different ideas from Torontonians about what a downtown looks like. Vaughan said they wanted to build a proper downtown and proposals like this and their new subway station (a nice one at that) suggest they're heading in the right direction. I wish them...
