    Toronto | Four Eleven King Condominiums | 149m | 45s | Great Gulf | KPMB

    Not only are the rounded corners gone, but it looks like there's a ton of spandrel glass (yellow) too and waist-height (blue) mullions (Edit: due to there being windows) and top vents (red) along all facades. 😬

    Toronto | Aquabella at Bayside | 51m | 14s | Tridel | 3XN

    Rode by this afternoon - window wall has been installed on the south side of the second floor.

    Toronto | 728 Yonge | ?m | 3s | Brook McIlroy

    I love a cornice and all, but that weird kink at the corner is really bothering me 🤪

    Toronto | YSL Residences - Yonge Street Living (383 Yonge) | 299m | 85s | Cresford | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    Because some people like it and some people don't?

    Toronto | 401 Bay Street (formerly Simpson Tower) | 144m | 33s | Cadillac Fairview | WZMH

    Here is a shot from 1932 from the Toronto Archives. You can see the Colonial Theatre from the image above in this photo.

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

    Not to get off topic, but I think a large interactive art piece like the the Crown Fountain in Chicago with high canopy trees like the silver maples would really suit David Pecaut Square

    277 Victoria (City of Toronto, ?s, ?)

    Would this be in the flight path of St. Michael's?

    Toronto | The Well | 174m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    Does anyone know what the purpose of those concrete "teeth" are along edge of the 4th floor are for? You see them a lot in construction.

    60 Bloor West Re-cladding (Morguard, 14s, B+H)

    Eek! It was better with the original corner treatment. They should have just changed the window treatment and left the corners.

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    The last of the glass has been installed for the east Front moat!

    1377 Sheppard Av W (Gov't of Canada, 5s, DIALOG)

    Hmmm the description does not match the address. The description is Allen Rd. and Sheppard Ave., but the address is at Keele St. and Sheppard Ave.

    Toronto | Manulife Centre Podium and Streetscape Renewal | 10m | 2s | Manulife Real Estate | MdeAS Architects

    If they used raw concrete panels along the top of the podium instead of the white metal sheeting, it would tie in better with the original structure.

    Toronto | 55C: 55 Charles Condos | 159m | 48s | MOD Developments | architectsAlliance

    Between this, Casa, Casa II, Casa III, it seems the theme for this stretch of Charles is to have large rectangular wall of glass at street level.

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

    I hope the spotlights are programmable, so they have the option to change colours for special occasions.

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

    I wonder why they chose to go with spotlights verse LED strip lighting.
