    Toronto | Canary Commons | 42.06m | 12s | DundeeKilmer | a—A

    Souk Tabule and Sukhothai are really good in my opinion. And Souk usually seems busy especially in the summer. More people coming to the area in the coming years with Canary Landing/ Canary House plus some new developments sure to come (Block 13, Foundry) will probably attract better retail in...

    Toronto | Canary Commons | 42.06m | 12s | DundeeKilmer | a—A

    Going to go out and say for Shop Task and Copper Branch, their issues were probably: - Copper Branch was not very good in general, had weird opening hours. I tried to like them multiple times and just never got anything I really “liked”. - Shop Task was specifically a rollerblade shop. It may...

    Toronto | Canary Commons | 42.06m | 12s | DundeeKilmer | a—A

    Especially given the closest right now is a Nofrills (which doesn’t appeal to everyone) and then St Lawrence Market. This will be the closest grocery store for a ton of people.

    It looks like interior construction is starting

    This literally mocks us in the neighbourhood every day. The application is still sitting with the city last time I saw.

    Same! It mocks us. I’m considering writing to the temp city councillor to see if they can get planning to move along!

    The application still says “Under Review”? Maybe they still need final go-ahead?

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 13 | 105.76m | 31s | Dream | Henriquez Partners

    I will be attending to let waterfront Toronto know that as a resident of the area, it’s actually okay if this building looks like it exists and has an in interesting design.

    Where did you find this? I wanted to check the status but the Toronto Dev Application site doesn’t let me search for “BA” applications. As this development gets closer to finishing, I’m increasingly eager to see progress on the grocery store.

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 13 | 105.76m | 31s | Dream | Henriquez Partners

    During the day and evening, when many are illuminated from the inside, the best that can be said about this type of design is that it’s fine. But at night, boy is it cold and soulless. For patios, it’s nice to be surrounded by color and material. And yes, you can manage that with large...

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 13 | 105.76m | 31s | Dream | Henriquez Partners

    Architects! Who hurt you? Why do you hate pedestrians so much? This building is stunning. And then, you look at the retail. Another endless glass wall. Coming off another glass wall next door. Glass never looks this transparent in real life. It would have hurt no one to bring down the brick...

    Ontario Line and GO: East Harbour Station

    Agreed, the big miss of this entire project is a cherry street station, especially as the 504 gets extended into the portlands, it would really be a great connection point to commuters heading west from the port lands.

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 13 | 105.76m | 31s | Dream | Henriquez Partners

    My biggest gripe is that the retail area is once again planned to be an endless glass wall, coming off the endless glass wall next door. It would not be a crime for architects to bring down some of the brick and pattern styles to the street level where most pedestrians actually experience...

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 13 | 105.76m | 31s | Dream | Henriquez Partners

    Wow! This is so good. Would easily be the best architecture in Front Street and bring some much needed texture/colour into the neighbourhood. Especially with Canary Commons next door (all blue glass).

    I’ve got to ask… what’s with these ugly dotted windows? Is there some new regulation that insists windows must look like this?

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I am going to have to agree with Alex on this. We are spending quite a bit of money rehabilitating this space to make it open to development, and the context of the city at this time is a housing crisis. This area is a blank slate, with no NIMBYs, will be close to the East Harbour employment...

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 20 | 162.61m | 46s | Dream | Henning Larsen

    There has been advocacy from orgs like the Toronto Regional Board Of Trade to create GO RER stations at Cherry (or here, Don Yard) and Spadina station. I’d say it’s highly likely to be built at some point, given the obvious connection to the port lands via cherry street (where the 504A would...

    I love these especially looking from front but wow do I ever wish that brick was RED.

    Toronto | East Harbour | 214.2m | 65s | Cadillac Fairview | Adamson

    I personally feel like preserving the soap factory is a dumb hill to die on, especially when the other critiques are so valid. There is not enough variation in building height, so there are no layers to the new skyline it’s creating. All the renderings are of blue glass buildings - me need more...

    Toronto | Canary Landing | 89.61m | 26s | Dream | COBE Architects

    This isn’t public housing, this is private rental housing, of which, something like 20% are affordable (80% of market rate) and the rest are market rental.
