    It's funny, as moving here from abroad, I find that all the Canadian parties are pretty centrist compared to what I'm used to! :)

    While stuck in traffic last week, I stumbled across some similar orange at Bloor and Dovercourt. I'd never seen this before. The new Postal Station E. From Google Street View:

    Toronto needs a "Vibrancy Tsar". If such a concept even exists. If not, it should.

    This balcony debate has been done to death in numerous threads. We use our balcony at least 7 months of the year, and we are on a high(ish) floor (30+). I have friends who regularly use their balconies on 50+ and 60+ floors. I can't even imagine living in a condo without a balcony.

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I quite like the current design. There's something Gigeresque about that podium transition.

    It's unfortunate that will all the fantastic improvements to this neighbourhood seen in @Red Mars photos, my eyes are just constantly drawn to THIS...

    I enjoy a bit of tacky here and there. I'm probably one of the few on here that enjoy the chaotic mess that is Dundas Square, a walk down the ludicrous Vegas Strip, a stroll around the tat of Clifton Hill. To me, that mess is vibrant. It's alive. Every city should have some tack, some chaos...

    Interesting reflections from the facets in the haze today.

    Surely with those open "mouths" this should be called the "Gradius Building!"

    New glass installed above the Harbour Street mid-block podium entrance. Hopefully there are still more improvements to come.

    There have been two mobile cranes working on the exterior overnight for the last week or so. I haven't managed to get a pic, but it looks like they're recladding the Harbour Street mid entrance section. It always looked cheap and temporary, so I'm glad it's getting some attention.

    From a distance, I'm getting some Aon Center (Chicago) vibes from this. Fantastic addition to the neighbourhood.
