    Toronto | M1 & M2 at M City | 197.81m | 60s | Rogers Real Estate | Core Architects

    I always ‘worry’ that a percentage of visitors passing through Pearson or flying over the Mississauga downtown might think they are seeing the Toronto downtown core, as most people would not be aware that the fairly large cluster of buildings nearby Toronto Pearson int airport is not actually...

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    A retro look does not belong at the Rogers Center; if a majority of baseball fans like the retro look (not sure why baseball fans would require that, certainly not good in the year 2022) then Rogers made a mistake in having bought the SkyDome. The steps taken so far are not good Modern, like...

    Toronto | Concord Sky | 298.99m | 84s | Concord Adex | a—A

    I haven’t seen anything I like so far about this project based on the images to date, as everyone has been saying here, but after giving it some more thought, there may be something to hope for if aA has in fact agreed to take this on, which they would not have if they were too limited in their...

    Don’t see any fine print about it being ‘artist’s concept only and is subject to change’

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

    The shadowing is a fair comment, but the default anti-height sentiment is not. I wonder if any of the NIMBYs were actually from Pinnacle One 😀

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

    This issue that a project is 'too tall' always reminds me of a similar argument made for 10 York, where the original massing consisted of a point tower that was a bit taller but much more appropriate for that site (slightly offset from ICE Condos, preserving as much of the view for the 3 towers...

    Below is a link to the last remaining penthouse for sale for about $31M, showing the residents' rooftop terraces, which I had not seen before. https://www.homesandland.com/For-Sale/Toronto,ON/1_Bloor_St_W___number__8202/70130854.html

    Toronto | Concord Sky | 298.99m | 84s | Concord Adex | a—A

    aA’s architecture is better than KPF in my opinion when it comes to proportions, refinement, elegance, not to mention well ahead of the second and third tier ‘award winning’ local firms that do a lot of work in Toronto. aA was recently featured in the architecture book Canadian Architecture...

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    The view west to The Well along Front Street (taken from one of the images above) is an example of a lost opportunity to contribute to a terminating vista ....perhaps having the small cantilevered glazed box here rather than further north on the facade (though a bolder feature would be even...

    Toronto | 191 Bay | 301.74m | 64s | QuadReal | Hariri Pontarini

    Whenever I search Skyscraper Page, I use Roof as the number 1 criteria for height, since I find it provides the best overall arrangement of the buildings' perceived / relative height ( a shorter building with a long spire will be placed further away from the taller buildings).

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

    Formwork has started for the next level at the NW column…..inching closer to the horizontal framing atop this concrete, which would then allow for the installation of the tension diagonals.

    Toronto | 191 Bay | 301.74m | 64s | QuadReal | Hariri Pontarini

    Are the heights of 191 Bay, 55 Yonge, Indx condos and other buildings at the financial core established by an arbitrary diagonal plane? This plane is very clear from the west, especially with IndxCondos.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Agree, it’s an exiting structure to be in and always will be. It needs a cosmetic overhaul by a top tier architecture studio. As with most things in life it does not check off all the boxes for baseball but what it does have makes it unique.The Rogers Center was a world class stadium when it...
