    Toronto | 1366 Yonge | 135m | 41s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli

    Sign of the times, but I agree with those that think this this lacks architectural merit.

    Toronto | 110 Avenue Road | 37.6m | 9s | Sierra | Richard Wengle

    The side by side comparison above is a bit different from what you said. In any event, it's interesting to note that the building basically stays the same size, the unit count actually increases, but a number of the one bedroom suites are being replaced with 2 bedroom suites and a few 3 bedroom...

    Toronto | 3180-3202 Yonge St | 41.9m | 11s | NYX Capital Corp | Richard Wengle

    Any word on whether council agreed to settlement offer? Also info on OLT case conference from July 29?

    Toronto | 34 Montgomery | 80.26m | 24s | First Capital | RAW Design

    Interesting how the renderings show a park with numerous young deciduous trees across Montgomery on the south side. Don't think there's a land assembly occurring on the south side to establish a park?

    Apple Store

    100 Bloor West is available. Definitely a signature property and no doubt has been explored by Apple. The One was offering 9,000sq. ft. on main floor and 6,000 sq. ft. on 2nd. 100 Bloor has 8,172 sq. ft. on main and 8,582 on 2nd. Not a perfect fit, but pretty close. Anyway, Apple does have...

    Zoning Reform Ideas

    Just go with (2.2) "allow any type of residential housing up to four units and four storeys on a single residential lot, subject to the provincial urban design guidance proposed in recommendation [X]". Not sure about Northern Light's concern about it passing or not? Who has to pass it? If the...

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    If one looks at the 3D moedelling of the proposed and under construction devlopment of condominiums (not to mention the sprawl occuring in communities east, west and north of the GTA), the supply of housing will grow at a blistering rate. In fact, if even half the stuff on the drawing boards...

    Hi Steve. Love the 3D models. Just an FYI. I noticed you still show 64 Prince Arthur as "proposed". That development was turned down at LPAT (OLT), so as of now there is no proposal for that site. Best.

    Is this how I send a private message? I want ot send a message to a member, but don't think it needs to be posted to the forum. Thanks.

    Toronto | 1 St Clair West | 165.63m | 49s | Slate | Gensler

    Agreed, but 1406 isn't the same developer. Slate is shadowing its own high end "signature" development. I'd be surpised if they've sold out One Deslile already.

    Toronto | 1 St Clair West | 165.63m | 49s | Slate | Gensler

    Yikes. The folks who have paid millions for their high end condos facing south at One Deslile (also a Slate development) won't be too happy with this curtain wall.

    Toronto | 2010 Yonge | 59.8m | 14s | Sud Group | Graziani + Corazza

    So they secured the property to the north where St Louis BBQ is currently located. Looks like a decent proposal for the site.

    Toronto | 2039 Yonge | 43.54m | 11s | Nivlog Investments Limited | superkül

    Sounds like a lot a lot of units for that site.

    Toronto | 1837 Bayview | 90.9m | 25s | Gupta | IBI Group

    Wow. I guess this is the first shoe to drop. If this goes through (based on OPA 405), it will certainly change the landscape. 5 residential homes turning into a tower with an 8 storey podium. Even the podium will dwarf the buildings nearby.

    Toronto | 1837 Bayview | 90.9m | 25s | Gupta | IBI Group

    Design is fine, but the height is pure bait & switch tactic. Gupta & their planner know this height will never get approved for this site, so they submitted an application for a tall building with the intention of showing good faith and later offering to settle for half the height. Even at...

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

    Without getting bogged down or taking sides, I just thought I'd point out that developers do in fact look at this site. Development managers certainly review comments about their projects and even owners and senior folks look over this stuff. Can't comment on how much they care.

    Toronto | Quayside | ?m | ?s | Dream | David Adjaye

    Thanks for pointing that out. Much of this site comments on the asthetics of proposed buildings, so I gave my 2 cents. Not a fan of Khrushchevian style architecture. As for creative, I thought Alphabet's Quayside was creative; Silodam, not so much.

    Toronto | Quayside | ?m | ?s | Dream | David Adjaye

    Well, as the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Certainly not to my liking. However, might go well with the old silos, if they decide to keep them.

    Bedford Park/Lawrence Park North

    Will increased density along the Yonge corridor from Lawrence north destroy the character of the neighbourhood? Here's the dilemma. Yonge Street north of Lawrence is currently dominated by low rise (2 to 4 storey) buildings with small retail shops at street level. Most of the shops are...
