    Toronto | The Dupont | 36.55m | 9s | Tridel | Turner Fleischer

    Why would you want to reduce parking here? The ossington bus is a good NS route but there is a dearth of EW transit. You will still get people with cars living here and parking will just go to further crowding an already at capacity street parking condition. St. Clair is no different. The amount...

    Toronto | 900 St Clair West | 43.69m | 12s | Canderel | BDP Quadrangle

    I doubt this breaks ground until Monza is well underway. The backers of this are institutional and deep pocketed. They can wait until the market is focused on their building as opposed to the two others within a block.

    Toronto | Galleria 01 & 02 | 92.65m | 29s | Almadev | Core Architects

    Correct, this is where the sales center will be. No idea what the plans are for after but that's a decade away at this point...

    Toronto | U of T: Centre for Civilizations, Cultures, and Cities | 42.75m | 9s | U of T | DS + R

    Would look a lot better stepped back from the ROM and not over powering it through height. Could do with being a story or two lower even then.

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

    You understand that the first mortgage is held by Firm as well as the subordinated bridge correct? Really the debt is broken up into a couple of tranches but it's all through Firm. I haven't talked to them specifically about this piece of debt (though I know that they are comfortable with it and...

    Old One: New One: You tell me. Does this look better? Higher quality? I would say that the process is the cheapening of the finishes and blunting of the architecture to lower costs. The Developer would be the one to blame.

    God the new rendering has cheapened the project significantly. Looks terrible!

    Toronto | Scotiabank North Tower at Bay Adelaide Centre | 140.2m | 32s | Brookfield | KPMB

    It's 76% leased now. They wouldn't turn down unsolicited interest but they aren't beating the bushes hard as far as I know. And I talk to the CFO on a fairly regular basis.

    Toronto | Scotiabank North Tower at Bay Adelaide Centre | 140.2m | 32s | Brookfield | KPMB

    It will be all office. They are not going to even start significant preleasing efforts until BA East is past the head-lease lease-up point nothing will happen. Brookfield Canada Office Properties owns the building, its parent Brookfield Property Partners sold it to them on an "as if leased"...

    Corso Italia

    Personally I love it because Regal Heights which has much much more in common with Hillcrest/Wychwood finally moves over. Having the cut-off line a block in from a major intersection (Alberta vs Oakwood) never made sense as it was but this is much more demographically homogeneous. Now I don't...

    Corso Italia

    You also don`t have long term owners who are no longer involved with this area like you do in Corsa Italia. Absentee landlords and a Councillor stuck 40 years in the past...

    Corso Italia

    I think change will bleed in from the East but major change will leapfrog Corsa with the Caledonia to Weston strip having the potential for more significant change. What happens to the Oakwood to Dufferin strip will be very interesting as well. And for the record I live in section 14 in the...

    Toronto | Forêt | 127.14m | 35s | Canderel | BDP Quadrangle

    There were workers onsite the other day looking/testing the (I assume) ventilation on the site. If there was soil contamination (and it was a gas station so there was...) if they were going to remediate the site wouldn't it have been easier to remove all of the soil, dig down another 40-50 feet...

    Toronto | Eight Forty on St Clair | 28.95m | 8s | Worsley Urban | RAW Design

    I wonder who's going to end up with this site now? With Nest across the street and the Main & Main development a block East on Alberta is there going to be enough demand for this in the near term?

    1233 St.Clair Avenue West (Shoppers Drug Mart, 3s, MJM Architects)

    So does this mean the rumours of Shoppers at 928 St. Clair (Little Miss Dress Up / Bar 918) is dead? They are gutting the building as we speak.

    Toronto | King Portland Centre and Kingly Condos | 57.6m | 15s | Allied | Hariri Pontarini

    TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 11, 2016) - Allied Properties REIT (TSX:AP.UN) and RioCan REIT (TSX:REI.UN) today announced plans to proceed with the development of 602-620 King Street West, Toronto.

    Toronto | Bay Adelaide Centre | 217.92m | 51s | Brookfield | KPMB

    Brookfield management has quietly discussed closing the street after they build the North building at some future point. Many of the renderings they have for the north building show a pedestrian only Temperance. They have gone so far as to begin negotiations with the owners of the other...

    Toronto | Richmond Adelaide Centre: EY Tower | 188.05m | 40s | Oxford Properties | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    Hence the third-person pronoun "they" in that sentence. :p

    Toronto | Richmond Adelaide Centre: EY Tower | 188.05m | 40s | Oxford Properties | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    From what I've heard it will be very similar to the cheesegrater that they just finished (Leadenhall in London). Dismissing the wonderful architecture and how London is so far and away better then our skyscrapers, the glass IS quite striking (both in pictures and in real life).
