    Toronto | RioCan Hall | 143m | 40s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    The inset arches could still work, but it does currently clash with the boxy steps. Maybe the precast (or brick?) could terminate in arches at the roofline as well?

    Toronto | 1555 Midland | ?m | 3s | Madison Group | Flanagan Beresford

    I'm pretty sure that station is under construction

    Toronto | 1555 Midland | ?m | 3s | Madison Group | Flanagan Beresford

    Connecting "Street A" to Norbury should be a no-brainer. The Brockley extension would also be a really smart place to try a woonerf. That's going to be a main access for a thousand kids walking in/out of the school to catch the 57. And the ship has sailed, but it would have made more sense to...

    Toronto | 159SW Condos | 119m | 36s | Alterra | Richmond Architects

    Drove by on the weekend and there was windowwall stacked up on the second floor. Should be seeing some cladding soon.

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

    Really? Not a lot happening over the noon-hour? Shocking...

    On the last page the close-ups of the beams look like they're shear studs

    Scotiabank Arena (Air Canada Centre) Renovations

    If we were getting into a big civic exercise of trying to create a special spot, the city could consider adding a short tunnel under Bremner to connect to the garages at Telus House and Maple Leaf Square. Then the at-grade garage entrances could be closed off and there'd be no need to maintain...

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

    I saw a neat video from the bottom of the cistern (private page, can't share). Looks like the rebar mat at the bottom is done, and there's a base down there for what I believe is a crane

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

    Pretty sure they've been slowed down by the clean-up from the big concrete spill they had a little while back. Should pick up again soon

    I know it's not technically in Toronto, but Pearson comes to mind as another exceptionally large site

    Toronto | TeaHouse 501 Yonge Condominiums | 171m | 52s | Lanterra | architectsAlliance

    They've installed sill track on the north elevation. Glass soon

    Or it's for a pumpcrete tower? Placing concrete with the buckets eats up piles of crane time

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

    The east side doesn't get cladding yet because the podium is going to climb higher and cover that section. Not sure why they aren't doing the south side yet

    TCDSB to charge teachers for parking at school lots!

    I'm with the TDSB, and wholeheartedly support the idea of charging us for parking. No one else in the city is getting free parking, nor should we.

    UrbanToronto Redesign

    Not an ideal solution, but I installed a Chrome extension, Stylus, that let me apply my own theme over the redesign. It just took four lines of code to fix: .main-header {display: none !important;} .p-nav-inner {display: none !important;} .p-sectionLinks {display: none !important;} .main-footer...
