    Toronto Coach Terminal 610 Bay St (City of Toronto, ?s, ?)

    I'm sure the FODF Group will express a strong interest, if they haven't already. (Friends of Doug Ford for anyone still unaware of this powerful lobbying organization)

    Toronto | The Pemberton | 215.79m | 68s | Pemberton | a—A

    Someone should timelapse this. If the ramp hits all 4 corners--circling the drain as it were--it would look pretty cool.

    Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    Wait, aren't ALL the threads for that?

    Rochdale College? Surely those folks didn't need to have actual glowing building tops in order to see glowing building tops.

    The most insulting (and maybe ironic in the infamous song's use of the word) is its sheer prominence in one of the most emblemetic post card views of the city. It's like CF really wanted to be a bug in the city's chardonnay.

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

    So the idea is to turn an unusually classy, elegant mid-rise stretch of Yonge Street into NYCC...? My feelings are pretty much word for word what Charleton Heston bellowed at the end of Planet of the Apes.

    Hell, why not have both!?

    To be fair, they may have been less cheaply built if allowed to be taller. For instance, I wonder if Nobu would have been as egregiously cheaped out if allowed to rise to, say, 60 or 70 stories.

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    This is the one building I really wish was (apologies in advance for employing this way overused and, frankly, insipid term) a supertall. And I mean Asian style ST, like, over 400 meters. It's a dynamic, unique, beautifully detailed tower, that if stretched to its ideal form would just look so...

    Watching this rise enables us to gauge with increasing accuracy where on the ugly-scale this is going to end up--1 being something like Aura, and 10 being along the line of the Ryugyong Hotel in N Korea before the glass was added..

    Toronto | 522 University | 232.92m | 62s | Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc | WZMH

    Disgusting. With all we know about climate change and how urgent the situation is now, there should be an absolute ban on destroying perfectly functional buildings of this size. Especially if the replacement is going to have the exact same function. Even more so if the original has architectural...

    Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    St Lawrence Market

    They're far too busy nabbing speeding cyclists in High Park.

    Dundas West/ Bloor Mobility Hub +interconnected hub network (Metrolinx)

    Sounds like a perfect chase scene for any generic crime thriller flick.

    And produces far fewer greenhouse gases. Frankly, I don't see any downsides to timber frame, so let's make every mid-rise with it. .

    Along with most of Canada. Of course if things get so bad that people have to move here just to survive, the game is over for everybody.

    Very, very nice. Can't wait to win the lottery so I can stay there during my Toronto visits!

    For the long, long term investor Detroit might also make sense.

    Toronto | 123 Edward | 228m | 72s | Crown Realty Partners | Turner Fleischer

    This proposal could be the moment Toronto developers crossed the line from everyday villainy to cartoonish supervillainy.
