    Toronto | Rouge National Urban Park Visitor Centre | 6.99m | 1s | Parks Canada | Moriyama & Teshima

    The American spelling of 'Centre' in the rendering is unfortunate...

    Toronto | 1744 Dundas West | 21.9m | 7s | Sol-Arch

    Attractive cities aren't necessarily the move. Messy is best!

    Toronto | U of T: Landscape of Landmark Quality | ?m | 1s | U of T | MVVA

    Hopefully this is the last time one of our public institutions does such a massive carbon-intensive (concrete) parking garage project... A step in the wrong direction for our climate targets.

    Toronto | 2116 Eglinton West | 30.5m | 9s | Old Stonehenge | Studio JCI

    A bit of a shame not to have balconies overlooking the cemetery - a perpetually-unspoiled view...

    Toronto | XO2 Condos | 71.7m | 19s | Lifetime | Turner Fleischer

    Looking forward to the Dufferin bus being replaced by streetcars!

    Leslie Street Spit

    This concrete looks amazing! I wonder who the contractor was doing the concrete work? Hard to get good concrete work in my experience...

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

    Controversial take: Millennium Park is too big and is a border vacuum. Ours will be better. Our waterfront (Harbourfront) is already better than Chicago's.

    14 Division Affordable Housing (321 Dovercourt Rd, 2s, Montgomery Sisam)

    Cool initiative, in theory, but this is much too little housing for this location. And this area is not lacking for parks. Should be something like 6 storeys here. Building this would leave at least three times the housing on the table.

    Toronto | Form Condos | 50.59m | 14s | Tridel | a—A

    I second the praise for the wayfinding. Any idea who did the signage design? In-house at Architects Alliance, or the landscape consultant?

    Toronto | ANX | 48.07m | 13s | Freed | Teeple Architects

    344 Dupont is not part of this redevelopment, hm? Not included in the latest posted drawings.

    Architectural styles unique to Toronto

    My Google mapping of Angel Brick Walk Up Apartments, "Toronto Specials", was featured in a column by The Globe & Mail's Dave LeBlanc (the Architourist) in today's paper. Behind a paywall: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/real-estate/toronto/article-the-toronto-special-ubiquitous-but-unheralded/...

    Toronto | SmartCentres: Highway 400 & 7 | ?m | 45s | SmartCentres | Weston Williamson

    The number 10 bus has a stop at Chrislea and Portage, at the northeast of this site. Service is awful at about twice hourly, but if you're willing to time your departure, you're a five minute trip away from the subway terminal.

    Toronto | The Carnaby Condos | 70.41m | 20s | Streetcar | TACT Architecture

    Although there is a ramp on the west side of Dufferin, I would have preferred to see a ramped access to the Toronto West Railpath integrated into this park as well, both for barrier-free accessibility, and to allow cyclists to continue north on Dufferin.

    Toronto | Lawrence Heights Revitalization | ?m | ?s | Context Development | KPMB

    It looks as though they're holding space for an extension of Mikado Avenue south of Ranee - is that planned?
