    Toronto | The One | 309m | 85s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    It is completely inappropriate to accuse people of racism or sexism without sufficient evidence. It is also inappropriate to use such baseless accusations to bully people into agreeing with you.

    Toronto | Eaton Centre (Ongoing Renewal) | ?m | ?s | Cadillac Fairview | Zeidler

    It's worth noting that "town planning" used to be an Olympic competition. I wonder if we would medal in it today.

    Toronto | 33 Yorkville Avenue | 216m | 68s | Cresford | architectsAlliance

    It looks like the master plan for that block fell through.

    Well I can't imagine that CF knows the office market as well as you do. Perhaps you should give them a call to let them know.

    483 Bay Street (Bell Trinity Square redevelopment)

    So this thread is basically about nothing.

    CF doesn't gamble. This was prompted by unusually strong demand. And as the article I linked above notes, CF has been talking to potential tenants.

    They announced some time ago that they're building on spec, so this isn't news. Demand is very strong, so there isn't much of a gamble here. You can read their rationale here: https://www.bisnow.com/toronto/news/office/why-cadillac-fairview-is-building-16-york-st-on-spec-71953

    Canada Square potential re-development (@Duplex, Oxford, 35s, ?)

    They don't. Oxford can walk away if they don't get what they want. They can invest elsewhere.

    Yonge-Dundas Square (Brown + Storey Architects)

    It will be nice to see how the private sector upgrade progresses: http://urbantoronto.ca/news/2017/01/private-sector-upgrade-proposed-yonge-dundas-square

    Toronto | Waterfront Innovation Centre | 53m | 12s | Waterfront Toronto | Sweeny &Co

    I thought it was the DRP who rejected it.

    Toronto | 2444 Yonge Street | 102m | 27s | Main and Main | Hariri Pontarini

    You could have just said that you don't know, or that you know but are unable to say.

    Toronto | 2444 Yonge Street | 102m | 27s | Main and Main | Hariri Pontarini

    Does this mean that the Restoration Hardware building remains in situ? Is it incorporated in the development?

    Toronto | E18HTEEN Erskine at Yonge | 107m | 35s | KG | Kirkor Architects

    Excellent article. It's nice to have an article that sees through all of the nonsense and pearl-clutching over this. "Problems seldom get as First World as this." Couldn't agree more.

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

    EDIT: In one of the renderings you can see that the section in question is actually intended to look different. (My link didn't work.)

    91 King Street East (Albany Club, 25s, WZMH Architects)

    Are there two threads for this right now?
