    Toronto YC Condos -- Yonge at College | 198.42m | 62s | Canderel | Graziani + Corazza

    A bit late posting these, but here's my construction update contribution. .

    Couple of shots in Corktown

    Moderators, perhaps this works better under Neighbourhood Node / Corktown ?

    Couple of shots in Corktown

    Literally, just 2. I was out this past Sunday on what turned out to be a balmy mid-winter afternoon, doing a routine construction thread update and heading for the River City Phase 3 condominium. The overpasses in this neighbourhood are an interesting urban feature. They're dark, they're...

    Toronto Theatre Park | 156.96m | 47s | Lamb Dev Corp | a—A

    A delight to photograph, love the nod to the glass façade of the Roy Thompson hall. Shot earlier today.

    Toronto Sixty Colborne Condos | 82.29m | 25s | Freed | a—A

    This one was tricky to photograph as the predominantly transparent glass glazing pretty much makes it fade into its surroundings. Sure, the cloudy day didn't help, but I can't help but wonder whether a more robust choice of cladding material would prevent it from washing out the way it does...

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

    Photo updates. Shot earlier today

    Mississauga Valley CC to the Bus Terminal

    A short walk earlier today, mainly through the mature, south-east portion of downtown Mississauga, the tower-in-the park section which is likely there to stay in it's current form for decades to come.

    Not Toronto, but the city right next door

    Toronto 1 Yorkville | 183.18m | 58s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli

    You are correct, I mis-counted. Cheers

    Toronto CampusOne Student Residence (was University Place) | 79.85m | 25s | Knightstone | Diamond Schmitt

    A student residence which could hardly hope to break a Top 10 Most Attractive Urban Prisons list, Campus One is nevertheless a very necessary part of downtown TO's student housing infrastructure. Of note is the interaction between the otherwise clunky mass and it's smaller-scaled surroundings...

    Toronto Wellesley on the Park | 194.15m | 60s | Lanterra | KPMB

    The rounded corners and the floor plate set-backs are a thing of beauty, while that glass installation ain't half bad. Photo update from earlier today.

    Toronto Vox Condominiums | 115.82m | 35s | Cresford | a—A

    Update from earlier today.

    Toronto Alexandra Park Revitalization | 53.48m | 15s | TCHC | SvN

    Some photo updates from site 11 and site 15, taken earlier today. The new street frontage looks great, and the bright yellow highlights stand out nicely against an otherwise grim atmosphere.

    Toronto 1 Yorkville | 183.18m | 58s | Bazis | Rosario Varacalli

    A couple of snapshots from today, looks like they are working on the 6th floor above ground. Cheers

    TVO: What's Wrong With Toronto Condos?

    "a shabby, decrepit, third-rate slum" See, this is what I'm talking about when I was hoping to hear a more nuanced argument. Also anecdotal, but I overheard a couple of muggles on the bathurst streetcar decrying the loss of Honest Ed's to "yet another f*cking condo". Why that proposal, among...

    TVO: What's Wrong With Toronto Condos?

    Am I the only one who noticed a slight sense of frustration on the part of Steve Paikin? He kept attempting to have either author zero in on a specific solution, or even a commendable example of what they are actually talking about, not just general comments about blandness or sameness of...
