    Toronto | Biblio Lofts | 28.91m | 7s | NVSBLE | BDP Quadrangle

    Used to be my wife’s store (Lumière Kids) back in the day. Mac Fab buying the block and then leaving really blighted the street. Glad to see this project - looks great!

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners For anyone that wants to have ‘fun with figures’ on employment, StatsCan makes it easy. Canadian and Ontario unemployment at very solid low rate of 5.6%. 2019 could very well have a slowdown, and mortgage income affordability...

    Unions vs. Employee Stock Ownership Plans

    It’s interesting the terms you use: give, grant. Unions might be ‘welcomed’ or ‘not resisted’, but they are hardly in management’s position to grant.

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    How ‘bout we build the DRL and see what Crosstown brings before catering to the GTA.

    Unions vs. Employee Stock Ownership Plans

    Can you give me a case where ESOPs and unions are ‘mutually exclusive’? You’re comparing apples and pomegranates.

    Toronto | Leslie Barns | ?m | ?s | TTC | SAI

    Probably wrong thread, but what’s under construction on SW corner of Commissioners and Leslie? Massive new project of some kind.

    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    Or along King in St. James cathedral park? Edward’s Gardens? Kew beach?

    95 Wellington West recladding (Cadillac Fairview, 20s, WZMH Architects)

    Quite possible -- no clue if they'll just remount the same panels after repairs or they're going to put up something completely different.

    95 Wellington West recladding (Cadillac Fairview, 20s, WZMH Architects)

    Can't find a thread, so starting this to ask if anyone knows the plans here. Looks like they're going to remove the granite like FCP's marble disappeared. Does this mean Scotia Plaza will be next in 'maybe we shouldn't import Italian marble to Canada' cladding mistakes to get redone?

    Toronto | 8 De Grassi | 19m | 5s | Percy Ellis | Brander

    Never thought I’d say it, but... 5 stories is probably too high. The top 2 stories will be over the berm and rattling with every train. (The precedent is probably Fontebonne and it must be a nightmare for top story residents.)

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    One of the more pleasant aspects for downtown commuters coming eastbound must be the University stop, as you now enter the PATH via the much better entrance into the food court on the SE corner. Those heading to the subway have a slightly longer walk, but those headed for TD Centre must be happy.

    Toronto | Angular Condos | 29.21m | 7s | Daffodil Developments | Square Vis Architects

    I like this. Good street presence and interesting window design. Agree with AoD that the entrance is a little weird - maybe eliminate the 2nd floor? My commute is 62 Mortimer to Broadview, and both bus and station are rarely crush level crowding (unless the 100 gets backed up in traffic). With...
