    Sustainability of Condo Living

    agreed, and I have gotten several building projects LEED certified (Silver and Gold) in past few years for me, the best available certification is Passive House Standard. no fluff, no point chasing (bike racks getting you a point). final hurdle requires 1-year of utility bills to confirm...

    Families in Toronto

    +1! Wonderful post. Great pointing out how people these days think kids should have their own room. I grew up sharing with my brother. And when I went to university, I shared a double room with a roommate. I think kids would develop good characteristics being considerate of other people when...

    Just for fun! Two Bedroom Layout for 500 sq ft.

    That second bedroom is tight like a cruise ship cabin. you would need to crawl out of bed at the end, and i hope you dont bang your knees or head on that column... I never like the long hallway layouts, they dont allow for multi-use I personally don't use my condo balcony at all. I wish...

    Canadian debt -

    I paid off my OSAP one year after full time work. I know this is early as I was fortunate to be in a co-op program, had some scholarships, and some RESPs. Now I strive to continue living debt-free aside from mortgage. Currently I'm on Baby Step #3 in Dave Ramsey's Money Makeover Plan in saving...

    Agreed, just another newspaper sensational headline.

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    what is overvalued? people need to stop basing it by average household incomes and think that the average household should be able or worse, entitled to buy a home. look at world class cities in the world (new york, tokyo, london, paris, hong kong, etc.), the average household cannot afford to...

    Toronto Union Park | 303.26m | 58s | Oxford Properties | Pelli Clarke Pelli

    +1 My mind would change too. On another note, they are selling us the park over the tracks, but it seems like it's going to be tough to get done. Can we make them secure/build the park before they build the casino

    Upper Village (LEED Silver, Markham Rd n of 16th, Greenpark, 2x 23s, Kirkor)

    yea seriously. also way to distort the proportions. the mosque looks like 20 storeys tall.

    Toronto Union Park | 303.26m | 58s | Oxford Properties | Pelli Clarke Pelli

    personally, i dont like the idea of a casino in the downtown core. second, deck and building over the rail tracks will eliminate the possibility of relocating the gardiner expressway 15-20 years from now when it becomes beyond repairable. concrete has started to fall, there will be a point...

    222 Finch West - mix use (MAD Development, 4s) COMPLETE

    I drive by there every night coming back from work. I think it's sad they went with the red brick exterior. Reminds me of early 90s single detached homes. The photos above actually look decent, compared to the building in real life (does not have the green awning or yellow exterior anymore). I...
