    Toronto | 645 Yonge | 280m | 76s | KingSett Capital | AS + GG

    It’s all very lovely! It knits so much of the surroundings together. Does there exist even a remote chance of persuading the developers to use other than grey-blue spandrel?

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    Peñalosa will get my vote. He’s the mayor we need, and I know that he’s in a long shot scenario, but political upsets do happen. The prospect of Tory unopposed was and is depressing, and the prospect of four more years of him is even worse. The state of our physical city has deteriorated under...

    Toronto | 401 Bay Street | 143.86m | 33s | Cadillac Fairview | WZMH

    I don’t comment here very much—other things in life on the go, shall we say, but I do look. And it’s time to say something: this monstrosity just made me throw up in my mouth. Can these jerks get away with just anything in this city? It would be interesting to listen to the conversation if any...

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    It’s ok with me if we get around to renaming King and Queen. No problem at all. It’ll be in someone else’s lifetime, though.

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    And we need something for Damien Warner. Something big.

    Ok then. Perhaps “Scenic Millway”

    You’re all being generous. Site could have supported a statement piece.

    Toronto | 2 Carlton | 251.1m | 73s | Northam | IBI Group

    I think that the revised version is fresh air. I’m totally amazed with some of the knee jerk criticisms here. So it’s perhaps a tad retro-pomo, I can’t actually find anything really wrong with that. Or, perhaps this is what nearby Aura should have been.

    Toronto | Massey Hall Revitalization at the Allied Music Centre | 48.46m | 7s | KPMB

    I was very pleased to hear a few years back that Essert is the acoustician. He was a large part of the success of Koerner Hall and the opera in TO. He’ll handle Massey acoustics well.

    I’d give anything for some interior shots. Just sayin’

    Toronto | Fleur Condos | 85.34m | 29s | Menkes | a—A

    This building caused my partner and myself to crank our necks, twice, recently. It’s a beautiful building. Refreshing is the word.

    Westin Harbour Castle (?, ?, ?)

    Thinking Singapore?

    Toronto | Church and Wellesley | 102.25m | 30s | ONE Properties | Graziani + Corazza

    Heh heh!! What’s your ambition? To run for mayor? You could consider that. I see no one at city hall arguing for excellence and maximum public benefit from developers who make a huge bundle in this booming town... oh, perhaps there are a couple of glowing exceptions in council. You would...

    Toronto | Church and Wellesley | 102.25m | 30s | ONE Properties | Graziani + Corazza

    This is a total outrage - guaranteed to feed cynicism about the current state of the development industry here in Toronto. The new proposal is not even mediocre. In fact, I’d rather see the corner stay as-is until a developer with good faith shows up. (I loved the previous version). What can...

    Toronto | 80 Bloor Street West | 250m | 72s | Krugarand | Giannone Petricone

    Such a pleasure to look at this design, for so many reasons.

    Toronto | 483 Bay | 226.63m | 69s | Northam | IBI Group

    I think this is just a bad idea. There are so many sites in downtown that could support a 70 storey tower nicely -- not this one. I wish this proposal would just go away.
