    Toronto | Mirvish+Gehry Toronto | 329m | 91s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    Someone posted earlier in this thread (probably about mid-2019) that during a shareholder call with one of the developers/investors/something that they said their next project, which was presumed to be M+G, would be developed in "1-2 years". According to that timeline I don't think anything...

    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 307m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Curious what the "2.5 acres of public access green park space" they are referring to is? My understanding is that park to the east is part of Menkes' Sugar Wharf, not Pinnacle One Yonge. Perhaps they're referring to the POPS in the North-West corner of the site?

    Toronto | Tower at Pier 27 | 115m | 35s | Cityzen | architectsAlliance

    Hoping the park gets done sooner rather than later. Last I heard Waterfront Toronto wasn't in a rush. I'm sure there's a lot up in the air until the QQE LRT is finalized. @Jeff Morgan, thank you for the summary. I'm guessing nothing was mentioned regarding the final phase (the two final...

    Toronto | Tower at Pier 27 | 115m | 35s | Cityzen | architectsAlliance

    Assuming you go, any chance you could provide an update? Much appreciated if so! I'm curious as to what is said but cannot attend myself.

    Toronto | No. 31 Condos | 137m | 37s | Lanterra | Arquitectonica

    The article does mention something called the "Red Brick Promenade" running from the Distillery to Whisky Beach (I'm assuming that is an idea for the Parliament slip?). Haven't heard of this before, but sounds nice, would be great to link the Distillery to the waterfront.

    Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 1) | 230m | 70s | Menkes | architectsAlliance

    Pretty sure it's actually: Phase 1 to Phase 2 via underground tunnel --> Phase 2 to One Yonge via above-ground tunnel --> One Yonge to Backstage PATH (which connects Backstage and CIBC Square Phase 2) via above-ground tunnel under the Gardiner --> CIBC Square Phase 2 to Union Station via...

    Toronto | KING Toronto | 58m | 16s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    Not sure I fully understood (until I saw the fencing in the above pictures) how big a swath of King Street this development encompasses. Makes me even more excited.

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    What was the height approved by the City? Curious that the developer wouldn't max these out given that they both were basically fully leased very quickly.

    East Bayfront: Parkside/Bayside/Dockside neighbourhoods Overview

    Seems like this is a test run of sorts, but it's exciting that WT is moving forward with building this along the whole waterfront. Interestingly, it seems they've proposed a "floating boardwalk" around the Redpath Sugar Factory waterfront, which I presume is so that the boardwalk can be moved to...

    Toronto | 100 Queens Quay at Sugar Wharf | 117m | 25s | Menkes | B+H

    The signs outside this development say "Available 2021". Given the speed of this, and the fact they're now working on the tower (which has a significantly smaller footprint than the podium), I gotta imagine this could conceivably be done quite early in 2021.

    East Bayfront: Parkside/Bayside/Dockside neighbourhoods Overview

    Is that referring to the decking that is supposed to extend out from the boardwalk? Or something else?

    Toronto | The One | 309m | 85s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I saw on the news a pedestrian was struck at Yonge and Bloor. Guessing that's what it was, unfortunately.

    365 Bay St. (Wildeboer Dellelce Place)

    Walked by this and it looks great. Too bad the whole building wasn't redeveloped though - it's a shame to have such a short, ugly (at least, above the first floor now) building right on Bay Street.

    Toronto | Aquavista at Bayside | 47m | 13s | Tridel | Arquitectonica

    So much negativity. I don't get it. On the "poor/good/great/spectacular" scale I would put this building at "great" - it's quality materials and interesting architecture. Not every building can be a showstopper, and that can't be the standard against which every building is measured. And you say...

    Toronto | TeaHouse 501 Yonge Condominiums | 171m | 52s | Lanterra | architectsAlliance

    I'm an avid UTer, but have never clicked on this thread and didn't know about this building. I was walking down Yonge Street last weekend and came across this site. The podium is very impressive and the slant/step-backs on the smaller tower look very cool in person. I think this is going to be a...
