    519 Sport and Recreation Project/Moss Park Arena Revitalization (MJMA/West 8/Public Studio/LGA/SvN)

    Selfishly, I will miss playing softball here every week with TSSC. I do wish they replace the field - It's one of the only downtown fields left. The crowd was always entertaining and respectful. There was a regular who would sit behind home plate and heckle the players while doing commentary. I...

    Toronto | Parliament Slip | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto | West 8

    Very cool proposal - this area desperately needs an attraction. Are there any winter uses? Skating rink, outdoor curling? It would be very cold with the wind coming off the late.

    Toronto | Sidewalk Toronto at Quayside | ?m | ?s | Sidewalk | Snøhetta

    What is the future of Cirque du Soleil here?? Could be a good destination site for them.

    Toronto | King Blue by Greenland | 155.75m | 48s | Greenland | IBI Group

    I mean this just isn't true I work with factories from China every day - they are all privately owned. Perhaps every massive company is owned by the state ie Huawei is 99.99 owned by the state. I suspect Greenland is largely state owned. The question is whether or not the infrastructure is...

    Toronto | 20 Bracebridge | 10.33m | 3s | City of Toronto | Montgomery Sisam

    For the life of me I cant understand why people are going after @Northern Light here when he is the only one actually providing information and evidence. I can understand the emotional reaction to this - and everyone ought to express their opinion on it. But "I am losing money" is not an...

    Toronto | Mirvish+Gehry Toronto | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    What does the city have to do with this? Do you seriously think that if the city approved the initial design it would actually get built? We would still likely get the value engineered version - just 3 towers of it.

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I say tax the hell out of Mizrahi, and the buyers - if the ultra rich international elite want a chunk of Toronto's skyline make them pay. I would even propose a progressive luxury tax on units over a certain value - which is what they do in Hong Kong on all sorts of luxury goods. If we arent...

    Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Puppet Show | Saunders

    A refreshing quote from the article In the end, Zeidler says her father cared less about preserving the design of his creations and more about the people that enjoyed them. "That's all he talked about [...] through my life was how people engage with places emotionally; I think he really...

    Toronto | Portland Commons | 71.7m | 15s | Carttera | Sweeny &Co

    For posterity sake - Peter Nygard is accused of sex trafficking and rape

    Toronto | Harris Square | 50.29m | 13s | Urban Capital | Saucier + Perrotte

    Whats beyond me is how low the standards are of residential developers and some users on this forum.

    Toronto | Bianca Condos | 37.79m | 9s | Tridel | Teeple Architects

    surprisingly it's the precast that looks super cheap and the windows that look good

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    I dont think the public transit connection is good enough. TFC games are a nightmare and have half the attendance. Say what you will about the skydome but it is insanely convenient - 10 minute indoor walk from union station. Something walking distance from union is the most ideal IMO. I don't...
