    Isn’t Prince St an NYC based restaurant? I’m certain I’ve had it there. I’m pretty sure it’s not affiliated with O&B, they only have that one location otherwise.

    This comes unnecessarily rude.

    Less about mural longevity and more about the maintenance and upkeep of the space IMO. I feel like some developers who plan these buildings are completely disconnected from the actual socio-economic reality of the neighbourhoods they are building in. I love the concept of the art wall but I have...

    Good point. Instead of benches and art that everyone can enjoy, we should probably build something like this on the chance that someone we don't like sits too close How very performative of you

    I’m curious about how the Art walls would hold up with a fairly prominent homeless and substance addicted population that would more than likely take up residence in that alley. The height is absolutely massive for the area IMO. It sticks out like a sore thumb in that render. I generally favour...

    Or not. Big fan of the airport, personally.

    I don't think Stockholm syndrome means what you think it means. Unless of course there are members here posting from behind the locked closet of a rogue Madison Group employee 😂.

    I am starting to think similarly. It looks better than expected i the pictures above form a distance.

    Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    *in your opinion. You’re kind if stating this like a fact when there’s so many people who have mentioned how much they like the design. I like it, personally. There’s always room for improvement. St lawrence hall/old market were built in completely different times, I don’t really think of...

    The design isn’t even approved yet, so not soon.

    Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    I agree. It doesn't really look like a defined idea at all. Just a few benches, rocks and a lump of grass? Really not very thoughtful.

    Looks absolutely massive in that first rendering compared to the surrounding buildings. Might be a bit to out of scale for the block which is mainly mid-rise, safe for "The Saint" going in at the western part on Church.

    Toronto | 65 King Street East | 82.9m | 18s | Carttera | WZMH

    Maybe the new subway line will help with that. If nothing else, it's kickstarting lots of new development in the area. But Yonge st and University Ave are not the most vibrant of areas for nice restaurants/bars/retail so I'm not exactly holding my breath... I don't know what level of rent in the...

    Whether it is exactly 50% of retail or not, what matters is it feels that way (if not more, personally speaking). The reasons above may be valid but it doesn't change the experience at ground level. I wish we would collectively hold commercial landlords more accountable to contributing to a...

    Toronto | 65 King Street East | 82.9m | 18s | Carttera | WZMH

    This is more or less my exact sentiment. Multiple restaurants have closed with nothing filling their place. There are many beautiful retail spaces with character but it's almost a complete deadzone on this strip. I feel like it has more to do with greedy landlords than anything else. It has so...
