    Toronto Concord Canada House | 231.97m | 74s | Concord Adex | Arcadis

    Totally. Weird to think that if completed today, this would be the 14th tallest building in Canada.

    Laneway and Garden Houses (various)

    This is a guess, but it could be the result of the way the regulations are drafted. Laneway houses need to be in certain proximity to a fire hydrant and have sufficient space for access between houses for emergency services. The units closest to the entry/exit to the laneway are probably more...

    Toronto TD Terrace | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    Everyone was saying this from the start, but it's very apparent now that if this were 70+m taller it would have been an iconic Toronto building.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I'd love to see something more aggressive -- close the South side curb lane to cars, make it a two-way cycle track, limit the north side curb lane to stopping and deliveries only. No left-turns off College. Just spitballing...

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

    Shortlist here. Hines Canada Management II ULC: Hines Canada with Tridel Builders Inc. and lead architect Foster + Partners. KMT Quayside Developments Inc.: Kilmer, Mattamy and Tricon and lead architect MVRDV, Cobe. Quayside Impact LP: Dream Unlimited Corp. and Great Gulf with lead...

    Road Safety & Vision Zero Plan

    I disagree - one of the main goals of policy-making is to encourage people to make the choices that benefit society. We do this all the time, encouraging people to wear seat belts, pay taxes, drive on the right side of the road, have children, get a job, etc. Much like these other policy goals...

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

    I'm not sure how final this is, but it blows my mind that they wouldn't just put the bike lane beside the sidewalk, protected from the street by the planting strip.

    Rail Deck Park (?, ?, ?)

    This isn't really the right thread for this discussion, but this is hardly supported. Talking specifically about the East end, the report commissioned by the city found an average increase in car commute time of 2-3 minutes. Further, only 5,200 cars/hour rely on the Gardiner (from the East) to...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    That looks great. I wish they could do that to the rest of College St.

    Toronto Garden District Condos | 99.97m | 32s | Hyde Park | a—A

    Wait they're tearing these down? These look amazing.

    Toronto Garrison Point | 118.56m | 35s | Cityzen | Hariri Pontarini

    *The only ways in/out by car. This is one of the most transit- and bike-connected neighbourhoods in the city, with direct access to the King streetcar, Exhibition GO, and shortly three pedestrian/cycle bridges out to King/Adelaide/Martin Goodman Trail, etc. In fact I would love to see Liberty's...

    Toronto The Carvalo on College | 21.94m | 7s | Clifton Blake | Studio JCI

    I think the rental building should be left in place - it's decent density and fits in well with the street. That being said, other elements of this seem desirable for the location.

    Toronto Garrison Point | 118.56m | 35s | Cityzen | Hariri Pontarini

    So many new housing units coming online in the next year or two in that photo - I count almost 3,000 including Garrison Point, Novus, 45 Strachan, ZEN King West and Minto Westside.

    Toronto Ontario Line | ?m | ?s

    So, to clarify, the DRL will be cheaper because it won't be tunneled in part downtown, and the Eglinton and Scarborough extensions in the suburbs will be tunneled. That seems backwards.

    Toronto TeaHouse 501 Yonge Condominiums | 170.98m | 52s | Lanterra | a—A

    Maybe it will be more like this, using perforated steel? Fingers crossed...

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    On the contrary, the report seems to indicate that many of Metrolinx's overruns were the result of politicians changing plans. As I recall, a lot of that was a result of the Ford brothers...

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

    I'm definitely going to be there with a bike to watch those plug removals.

    Toronto Bathurst Quay Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Kearns Mancini

    Am I right in assuming there is still no definitive plan for the silos? I wish we could have some sort of climbing gym in there similar to Allez Up in Montreal.
