    Yup, that's a different project, owned by Project Core. M+G is Great Gulf's baby now.

    Pretty sure it's a parody account.

    Whoa...

    I'm truly mystified by how this news could have elicited such a negative reaction from some here. I've never seen a development (other than ones with horrid designs) attract such relentless skepticism and hate.

    It's an unusual project.

    I thought this might start to look better as it got taller, but I was wrong.

    This is not cheap retail space. Don't be surprised that it takes a long time to lease.

    Just because you can't think of a reason, doesn't mean there isn't a very good reason. The realities of building, selling and financing something of this magnitude are complex and not typically publicized. It's disingenuous for you to push the narrative that Great Gulf has been sitting on their...

    For what it's worth, I've heard from decent sources that they're close to locking down an anchor for the Hub.

    It's not immediately evident but this will actually be the tallest office tower to go up in Toronto since Scotia Plaza in 1988.

    I've always wondered... what happens if one of these cables needs to be repaired in the future. Do they keep a record of where these lines are laid down? It always looks like such a mess.

    What on earth are you talking about? This was still at grade a year ago.

    Toronto | Union Centre | 267m | 52s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    Pretty banal design by BIG standards. I see why "utilitarian" was their key word here. I don't mind the bold & blocky look, but the proportions and slope of the crown need to be refined. I'd also have hoped and expected to see a different colour or material than blue glass from BIG, so that's a...

    Toronto | Commerce Court 3 | 302m | 64s | QuadReal | Hariri Pontarini

    I'm all for simple and elegant designs (though I do think the tallest tower in the financial core calls for some kind of signature gesture, subtle as it may be). I love CCW, and Paino's New York Times building (which some are comparing this to) is one of my absolute favorites, but if anything...

    I think I prefer the way it looks right now over what's being built. A patch of dirt at least has potential.
