    Toronto | Union Centre | 298m | 54s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    I wish they would provide a winter render with these projects that have a lot of green spaces integrated into the design. I always wonder how it will look in winter when the ivy is just branches and not as lush. Or, could they be using plants that would stay green during a Toronto winter...

    Toronto | Rogers Centre Renovations | ?m | ?s | Toronto Blue Jays | Populous

    This is exciting and will make an impact. Great to see!! I just hope they allocate some of those funds to fixing up the exterior as well. It could use some sprucing up.

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    Apologies if this has already been discussed but I didn't see anything on the recent pages so figured I would ask. I am curious how the Ontario Line construction process will compare to The Crosstown. They are both relatively similar length in length (CT is 19km/25 stations while OL is...

    46-54 Ossington Ave (Hullmark, 3s, Audax)

    This turned out really, really good! Saw it live on the weekend and was very impressed. Would love to see this repeated over and over in the city. :)

    Toronto | June Callwood Park | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | gh3

    The fence surrounding this park came down recently and it’s finally open again. I don’t really recall what this looked like before the renovation but I know it was not well liked or used. I still say this is not appealing or what I would want in a park but will admit I did see some people...

    Toronto | West Condos | 46.51m | 14s | Aspen Ridge | Core Architects

    i like the proportions this will add to the area. seems like a lot of spandrel though. hopefully the balcony treatments will mask it well.

    Bathurst Quay Revitalization: Canada Malting Silos, Ireland Pk, Waterfront Promenade (was Metronome)

    This is great news! The Bathurst Quay waterfront renovation just keeps getting better and better. With Little Norway, the Music Garden and now this new park, there will be no shortage of nice waterfront parks in the area!! Kudos to all involved in making this happen. My only wish is it...

    I could be mistaken but looks like they have started working on the bridge.

    Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 1) | 231m | 70s | Menkes | a—A

    The balcony pattern is much more noticeable from a distance. This pic is giving me more hope this will turn out looking quite nice.

    Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Province of Ontario | Zeidler

    Was walking in Trillium park and noticed these new structures currently being worked on. They are bird feeders designed for barn swallows. Likely some other species may nest on top but the bottoms are set for barn swallows. no birds have set up yet as it’s still under construction but...

    Toronto | Ontario Line: King-Bathurst Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    So does this mean they will be turning 668 King Street into a station too? I am happy they are keeping these heritage buildings but it does suck losing two structures that make for really nice retail/restaurant atmospheres. On the other hand, they will be cool subways stops :)

    Rail Deck Park (?, ?, ?)

    They gave Joe Cressey some air time during their presentation tonight and he summarily said the city still intends to develop the entire area as parkland. Sounds like the city has not given up on getting the full park yet.

    Stackt Container Market (28 Bathurst St, future park)

    Does anyone know if this park will be part of the future Lower Garrison Creek Park? When I look at plans for LGCP, it appears it would be located on the south side of the Bathurst Bridge, spanning both east and west of the bridge. So, I am wondering if this Stackt park, which is north of...

    If they had to cover the podium, i wish they would have done something more interesting like they did with the W Hotel. At least that has some texture and pop. Photo credit - thaivic.

    Was at the Remembrance ceremony at Fort York so thought i would check out the progress. They are laying down new rubber in the playground and other areas but i don’t see much greenery. The workers told me they are laying some soil and plants on the north end but it appears the rest will be...

    Bathurst Quay Revitalization: Canada Malting Silos, Ireland Pk, Waterfront Promenade (was Metronome)

    i was in the area so dropped by to check out the light test. it looks great. you can really see the potential that these silos can bring this area with effective lighting. kudos to all involved and if they can get a restaurant and/or patio on top of these silos, it would have one of the...

    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    This is interesting. That Lakeshore/Bathurst intersection is overly confusing to people so this may help rectify some of the issues. In particular, preventing cars travelling south on Bathurst from turning right onto Lakeshore. Currently, the only thing preventing people from turning right...
