    Toronto The Bluffs | 34.14m | 9s | Skale | RAW Design

    Anyone know why so many units in this condo are constantly for sale? I swear, I haven't seen any less than 5 on the market since it opened, so I suspect the quality isn't so great. That or there's some good 'ol fashioned money laundering afoot.

    Toronto Concord Sky | 299m | 85s | Concord Adex | a—A

    "Let's keep the lights off tonight, babe. And can you put this paper bag over your face?" Ah, such a compliment to the architecture!

    Toronto Concord Sky | 299m | 85s | Concord Adex | a—A

    It's taller than Aura at 84 storeys and just shy of 300 metres. However, it's not actually 95 storeys tall. Concord just skipped the number 4 in every floor but is marketing it as a 95 storey building regardless; likely because having honest marketing calling it an "84 storey condo" just brings...

    Toronto Pinnacle One Yonge | 344.58m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Hmm I don't know. Personally, I wasn't as attached to this crane as I was to L Tower's.

    Toronto Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    It wouldn't surprise me if pre-sale timelines have stalled due to the numerous supply chain issues going on across North America (lumber and steel are big ones) as well as the cost of labour going up. It's a volatile market to move forward on a big project when building supplies and talent are...

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

    I'm aware. But it's a lazy design and it's just "pointier Aura" to me. Unlike The One which at least uses some much more interesting cladding.

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

    It's a welcome sight to see those comparison pics! But man I've got to say The One sure is leaps and bounds better looking than Sky Tower and pointier Aura.

    Toronto Art Shoppe Condos | 98.75m | 28s | Freed | a—A

    I've always wondered if the slant in the design of Art Shoppe on this corner was because the developer and the city intended on getting rid of the three phase intersection and aligning Soudan and Berwick into a normal two phase intersection. Anyone know if that's the case? If so that would...

    Toronto Ten York Street Condos | 224.02m | 65s | Tridel | Wallman Architects

    Wow, FCP is barely noticeable and Scotia Plaza has all but completely disappeared from that view from the islands. The classic postcard view of the skyline has really changed.

    Toronto One Bloor East | 257.24m | 76s | Great Gulf | Hariri Pontarini

    To be fair it will likely look better when the retail space is occupied.

    Uhoh, SpaghettiOs.

    Waterloo Region Transit Developments (ION LRT, new terminal, GRT buses)

    If I recall correctly Edmonton and Calgary weren't super far off in terms of population when they built their lines.

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    Just under 4 weeks to deliver 2 more streetcars. Bombardier might actually pull it off and keep to their new schedule.

    Toronto Spadina Subway Extension Emergency Exits | ?m | 1s | TTC | IBI Group

    Platform screen doors were never part of the project, were they? They'd have to get ATC up and running on all of Line 1 before they could have them installed on any part of the Spadina Extension anyway.

    Toronto Sun Life Financial Tower & Harbour Plaza Residences | 236.51m | 67s | Menkes | Sweeny &Co

    Just like with One Bloor East. Seems like all the condos with interesting balconies are taking a while, though both projects are looking really great.

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    So they've got 6 weeks to ship number 27, 28, 29 and 30. I'm not holding my breath. I think they'll end the year at 28, tops.

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    Yep. Unless you reload at an in-station kiosk it won't automatically show up in your balance. The next time you tap it will be updated.

    Toronto 100 Queens Quay at Sugar Wharf | 117.34m | 25s | Menkes | B+H

    Agreed. That area desperately needs some colour.

    Toronto Ten York Street Condos | 224.02m | 65s | Tridel | Wallman Architects

    Iconic is just a really strong word to describe a fairly average looking condo in a neighbourhood characterized by similar building aesthetics, is all. Meanwhile, the CN Tower is iconic because it was the tallest freestanding structure in the world for decades and is the focal point of our...

    Toronto Ten York Street Condos | 224.02m | 65s | Tridel | Wallman Architects

    Iconic? Let's not kid ourselves. It won't look bad by any stretch and the podium is certainly interesting, but Ten York Street won't stand out in the slightest. It's just another green/blue glass condo in Southcore. Would you call this an iconic render?
