    Across the street at the Site Office and Douglas Coupland’s Emoji Gallery:

    The Cats Parkette | ?m | ?s | RioCan | CCxA

    I’m a little confused. I thought Claude Cormier already designed a cat park on nearby Draper Street which runs east-west between Draper Street and The Well. I thought this park was part of KING Toronto as it forms a pedestrian thoroughfare from the south arch passage/opening of the courtyard to...

    Toronto | 914 Bathurst | 37.18m | 10s | Stafford | Turner Fleischer

    I agree, having TH units right on Bathurst Street is not ideal. It’s in close proximity to Bloor and the subway station so it would make sense to have retail along Bathurst to improve the pedestrian realm.

    From yesterday as a wall of fog rolled in from the lake.

    Funny, this panel is on the 2nd floor, not much distance to hoist up and it got damaged, but it was one of the first inset precast panels installed so it’s probably the result of the worker’s learning curve. I prefer the look of the darker panel.

    Still curious about this lone dark precast panel. Will the other panels be stained the same colour? The subtle contrast will look much nicer throughout the building especially against the dark bronze windows. Don’t know why they were not stained before installation.

    I thought you meant King West! (Didn’t see your bio location)

    I can’t wait to see the north and east mountains (along King) go up. I’m curious on how the courtyard would feel spacially.

    You mean Kitchener-Waterloo? 😆

    480 Adelaide St W (@ Maud St, ?, 2s, ?)

    I always thought that this property would be eventually combined with 490 Adelaide and something up to 17 storeys would be built here (similar to Minto’s 123 Portland next to it). A 2-storey building seems like such a waste, a 5- or 6-storey commercial building would work nicely here.

    Toronto | Niagara 77 Condos | 248.85m | 77s | Fugiel International Group | Chamberlain

    Though this is a fantasy private development (most likely trying to get approvals so the property could be flipped to another developer, just like many vacant lots in the area), I think the City should be improving the the quality and intensity of low and mid-rise near the falls instead wasting...

    That inconsistency happens in a few places, but with the mess of mullions going on you have to go looking for them to notice.

    Toronto | Wonder | 31.7m | 8s | Graywood | Diamond Schmitt

    ^^^ or go the opposite route and have the mullions (and spandrels) in multiple colours and create a plaid or tartan pattern — maybe not so appropriate here. This development is such a shame because the original building is such a small portion of the overall development and the new ugly building...

    Toronto | 675 King West | 65.82m | 19s | Colonia Treuhand Holdings | Sweeny &Co

    Or even worse, a commercial billboard. This prominent intersection needs something interesting and fun. Maybe that blank wall could be a cool opportunity for an impressive public art installation. The clocks on the Clocktower Lofts across the street never seems to be working and ever since the...

    Toronto | ZEN King West | 103.02m | 31s | CentreCourt | IBI Group

    I totally agree. Every time I pass by that building I always think that a mural or even a living/green wall would be prefect for that mass of blank brick wall on the ground floor. What a missed opportunity. Also, the rental building across the street to the south (Liberty House) was originally...
