    What I'd like to know is, why I've never seen people using that pool area in all those pictures that Benito has posted. A question for Benito: have you ever seen that BE terrace being used??

    Toronto | The Rosedale on Bloor | 185.92m | 55s | Gupta | IBI Group

    Compared to "Dundas Square Gardens", also by Gupta, this is fantastic, also much better then some of the buildings in the heart of Yorkville! I'd give this building a solid 8 out of 10 for quality of exterior!

    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 312.5m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    The two Ice towers would have to be in the running for me. The two swiss cheese style rooftops are so unique that to me they qualify as works of art!

    Can someone explain to me why tying all that rebar together, undoubtedly massive amounts of man-hours to do so, is more economic than using just steel beams? In NYC most of the new skyscrapers seem to be steel beam construction. The transfer slab here in particular was insane amounts of rebar...

    So which "The One", would you rather live in and which in fact is the real "One"?? https://www.cnbc.com/video/2017/09/27/americas-most-expensive-home-is-a-mind-blowing-500-million-bel-air-mansion.html

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    Looks to be taken from about the 20th floor (88 Scott St)? In about a year that little sliver of lake view will be gone! Sorry Ryan :-) !

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    With the Gardiner shut down for maintenance and no sign of human life, that first picture looks almost post apocalyptic or post pandemic. Maybe in a year or so, after the delta, gamma, lambda and and other so called varients finish with us or is it when those wonderful vaxes and their...

    Toronto | Via Bloor | 138.37m | 46s | Tridel | a—A

    All we need is Bo Derek emerging from that pool and a good picture would have become great! Aging myself with that comment, 😆 .

    Toronto | Scotiabank North Tower at Bay Adelaide Centre | 140.2m | 32s | Brookfield | KPMB

    Sorry can't agree with you here! This sucks big time! No thought put into the architecture of this building whatsoever. I can't think of too many projects, including 401 Bay, that UT'ers love to rip that are worse than this banal piece of $hit! Nice glass, gimme a break!

    Well I've been a member for more than a decade and still considered a New Member! I guess because I can't be bothered fighting with the mods and all the other politically correct members who think that central Toronto is the be all and end all of the universe! I can almost taste the contempt for...

    Toronto | Ontario Court of Justice Toronto | 95.7m | 17s | Infrastructure Ontar | Renzo Piano

    I think the proper word here, would be "stubby", LOL

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

    Hell! It seems that they have only one form for the super columns (moving it around after each pour cures) and it only partially covers them when filled. At this rate the building should be finished by, hmmm, 2033?

    Toronto | Scotiabank North Tower at Bay Adelaide Centre | 140.2m | 32s | Brookfield | KPMB

    These comments regarding the reclad of the Simpson's tower as well as comments of a similar nature of various other buildings are both tiresome and annoying. They remind me of what childhood bullies act like. Pile on, the nerd can't defend himself! In defense of the reclad, as a backdrop, it...

    Toronto | Exhibit Residences | 99.97m | 32s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli

    As opposed to whom? Our great friend and benefactor, the US? George Bush and the WMDs, Vietnam, the Middle East and probably a dozen other countries they've meddled in and continue to do so even today. Our good friends, who bully us when convenient with their tariffs and talk of tariffs by the...

    Toronto | Exhibit Residences | 99.97m | 32s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli

    I'd always thought that Exhibit's skewed volumes were something original architectually-wise. However I had the fortune of visiting Moscow in Russia last year and saw these towers in the Moscow International Business Center. They're called the Capital City Towers and the one on the right is a...
