    Toronto | ConneXion | ?m | ?s | North Star | TACT Architecture

    They took a long time to put in the underground (which seems well done) and then took a very long time with the units themselves (which seem shoddily constructed with chipboard instead of proper plywood for the structure for example). They had a very small number of workers on the bricks, which...

    Toronto | ConneXion | ?m | ?s | North Star | TACT Architecture

    I am surprised by that. I walk by the site every day and there is no way anyone could move in there. Not all of the cladding is done. The site is an active construction zone with no sidewalk access and mud everywhere. I suspect that will get pushed back by a couple of months.

    Toronto | ConneXion | ?m | ?s | North Star | TACT Architecture

    Work here is progressing even more slowly than I had earlier mentioned. Most exterior brick is now up but the prefab exterior covering isn't fully installed yet. Interior work continuing and of course, no work on teh ground yet due to the work being done. I imagine they are looking at late...

    Toronto | 2 Carlton | 251.14m | 73s | Northam | IBI Group

    I know from speaking with tenants there that the owners have recently told them that the likelihood of the project proceeding soon is low. With the expansion of the Shoppers Drug Mart, they signed a 10 year lease and it has a very significant buyout clause in it that means it might only be...

    More brick going on the buildings. Some interior work starting now too. At this glacial pace, I suspect they are looking at late fall for completion.

    PATH Network Expansion (various, various, various)

    Why is Toronto General not indicated on the map? It is clearly connected underground to the MARS building's part of the PATH directly to its north.

    They have very few people working on the site. Right now they are putting up some of the brick on the outside but at a snail's pace. Most of the windows and doors are in but the roofing isn't done and I really wonder about the quality of these flat roofs given they're all covered in aspenite.

    Toronto | ConneXion | ?m | ?s | North Star | TACT Architecture

    They've got windows in half of the units now and some of the interior work appears to be starting. Interestingly, there appears to be some potential land assembly possibilities to the west of this development, so there is a chance we may see another development close by. The body shop two...

    It just seems odd given they spent all the time and money to create a multi-level underground parking garage.

    Toronto | ConneXion | ?m | ?s | North Star | TACT Architecture

    This has been one of the slowest builds for a small complex I have ever seen. What is also concerning is that they did all the work to create a parking garage and concrete foundations and now they are cheaping out and building the remainder out of low quality wood frame materials. And with a...

    Toronto | Wellesley on the Park | 194.15m | 60s | Lanterra | KPMB

    The next one in the area will be on the SW corner of Yonge and Grosvenor.

    365 Church Condos | 102m | 31s | Menkes | Wallman Architects COMPLETE

    It looks a lot like Pittman Hall at Ryerson. It's actually an attractive building (sans barb wire fencing that is.)

    Toronto | 295 Jarvis Street | 112.47m | 36s | Minto Group | Core Architects

    I hope not. Those two houses are actually nice examples of architecture and have been well-maintained over the years.

    365 Church Condos | 102m | 31s | Menkes | Wallman Architects COMPLETE

    Same windows used at Radio City. Let's hope these are properly sealed. There were huge issues with leaks in the building envelope there that cost millions to repair.

    How Accessible and Responsive Is Your City Councillor?

    Mine is Justin Di Ciano and he is terribly unresponsive. I've waited for months for a response to an email to him to the point where the questions are now irrelevant since the infrastructure work I was asking about was completed.
