    Toronto | Concord Canada House | 233.16m | 69s | Concord Adex | IBI Group

    Apologies as I'm sure if I read back through all the previous pages this has been rehashed to death several times before... but wow is this project ever disappointing. In the context of my long hiatus from this site and keeping up with Toronto's architecture, in coming back now this is easily...

    Toronto | One O One | ?m | 26s | Camrost-Felcorp | Onespace

    So the new tower is going ahead? Pity.

    One32 Berkeley (Concert, 10s, P+S/IBI)

    That's not setting a very high bar.

    Toronto | One Bloor East | 257.24m | 76s | Great Gulf | Hariri Pontarini

    Logistical screw up? One thing holding up a bunch of others. Not sure how common it is in construction but I see it all the time.

    Toronto | 383 Sorauren Avenue | 34m | 10s | Gairloch | architectsAlliance

    Why would they fight this? To create the illusion of earning a paycheck? Honestly, what are the issues, are these employment lands?

    Toronto | MaRS Centre Phase 2 | 112.77m | 20s | Alexandria | B+H

    As far as mechanical integration goes, this is above most. Take a glance out of any window in this city above 30 storeys and you'll agree. All around great building.

    Trinity-Bellwoods Towns+Homes | ?m | 3s | Urban Capital | Richard Wengle COMPLETE

    I don't see what you're complaining about, look great.

    Brant Park, The | 35m | 11s | Lamb Development | architectsAlliance COMPLETE

    It's not very ornate, but that we're losing this kind of detailed masonry all the time and not putting up anything new makes every loss a bit disheartening.

    Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Toronto | 204m | 52s | Lifetime | architectsAlliance COMPLETE

    Doesn't look like a human sized hole. I'd bet someone probably bumped into it on accident.

    Aura at College Park | 272m | 78s | Canderel | Graziani + Corazza COMPLETE

    I assume that's just for the retail? Speaking of which, walked through it this past Saturday to check it out for myself. BB&B has a terrible layout, it's like a maze. And they might as well have put it in the basement since not a single pane of glass seems to be free of merchandize cluttered in...

    Toronto | 66 Isabella | 73m | 23s | Quadrangle

    This is going to be quite the Frankenstein('s monster).

    Toronto | Sun Life Financial Tower & Harbour Plaza Residences | 236.51m | 67s | Menkes | Sweeny &Co

    Well no not quite. It's not as simple as crossing the street since there isn't one on the other side. As a pedestrian you simply can't get from Bay to York along Harbour. You either have to walk up to Lakeshore and use the path right against the ACC (because there's no southern sidewalk on...

    Toronto | World on Yonge | ?m | 31s | Liberty Development | Kirkor Architects

    The materials on the office building/hotel are sh*t but I'm quite drawn to the massing. It's certainly unique.

    Toronto | Sun Life Financial Tower & Harbour Plaza Residences | 236.51m | 67s | Menkes | Sweeny &Co

    I find it a bit ridiculous that all of the sidewalks abutting this site are closed. It's a pedestrian dead-zone down there now. Not that it was particularly lively with just the parking lot or the Workmen's Comp. building before that, but still.
