    Toronto TD Terrace (160 Front St W) | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    It almost looks like the BMU opening can actually be closed off. Is that the case? Does anyone know how the BMU will reach the other side of the building when it's so far down from the top? Can it really extend that much or is there a second BMU?

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

    The irony in your post is that every city you listed has horrendous architecture. Specific to North America, Miami is the only other city I know of that spams window wall balcony riddled condos the way Toronto does (Vancouver is in a distant 3rd place). With that said, I actually think that...

    Toronto TD Terrace (160 Front St W) | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    Wow, this looks like it'll be the best lit building in the city 😍

    Toronto The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    That's pretty misleading. Atlanta might have 6% more tree cover, but it has about 1/3 the density of Toronto (comparing only city propers, I don't want to embarrass Atlanta too much). As a whole, an area that includes X million people in Atlanta would have far fewer trees and disrupt more of the...

    Toronto IMMIX | 131.06m | 38s | QuadReal | a—A

    I see aA is still mooching their Casa design. What is this, Casa 20 by now?

    Toronto Love Park | 3m | 1s | City of Toronto | CCxA

    I hope dogs don't ruin this park like they've ruined every other park in this city :(

    Toronto 19 Duncan | 186.53m | 58s | Westbank | Hariri Pontarini

    This building is proof that Toronto developers need to ditch their obsession with balconies.

    Toronto The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Those panels are so tall! Nearly every other development in the city, would've used 2 or more panels to cover that height. Also, the use of something other than glass to cover the slab makes the panels look larger. Compare to the glass panels at the one, which are also full-floor-length, but use...

    Toronto Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 1) | 231m | 70s | Menkes | a—A

    I'll admit, I usually dislike the wraparound balcony idea that aA usually designs. HOWEVER, these have turned out to actually be quite pleasant. I would still rather non wraparound balcony designs, but if we are going this route, this is how it should be done. I especially like the juxtaposition...

    Toronto Nobu Residences Toronto | 156.66m | 45s | Madison Group | Teeple Architects

    Damn, that is such a shame :( Any chance of actual curtainwall in the sections where it was depicted in the rendering?

    Toronto Ace Hotel Toronto | 44.8m | 13s | Carbon Hospitality | Shim-Sutcliffe

    It's funny you mention that, because I love this structure for the exact reasons you dislike it! It reminds me so much of brutalist univeristy libraries; especially Scott, but also Weldon, Robarts, etc.

    Toronto Ontario Court of Justice Toronto | 95.7m | 17s | Infrastructure ON | Renzo Piano

    This building looks so much like modern, understated, high quality, bulky Japanese office architecture, and I love it!

    Toronto Pinnacle One Yonge | 344.9m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Are those renderings current? They depict a different design for phase 1 than what has been built.

    Toronto Ace Hotel Toronto | 44.8m | 13s | Carbon Hospitality | Shim-Sutcliffe

    This is a stunning building. The mechanical level definitely could've been done better, but it's not the disaster I thought it was going to be. Shim-Sutcliffe should be proud of what they've accomplished here.

    Toronto Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85.04m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    This is looking fabulous, and the restrained use of balconies certainly helps with that!

    Toronto Eighty One Wellesley | 97.53m | 28s | Aragon Properties | Core Architects

    This is turning out great, IMO. Refreshing cladding choice, high quality glass used, interesting window shapes (especially the thin horizontal slits), fairly well integrated balconies, and substantial yet not overbearing massing at ground level. It's far from perfect, but it is easily above average.

    Toronto The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    The rendering didn't, but your explanation sort of does. I had assumed that was just a trim piece. It doesn't appear to be structural. Either way, what about the slab at the top of each section? That diagonal piece doesn't go out very far by that point. Edit: In some of the renderings, there is...

    Toronto The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    That literally doesn't answer my question at all, but ok. I'll ask it again, in case anyone has real input rather than a pointless reply:

    Toronto The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    What's the permanent plan for the corner slabs? Will that yellow joist in the corner be replaced with something more substantial to carry the weight of every corner slab over the height of the building, or will each corner slab be supported by that the supercolumns somehow?

    Toronto 155 Antibes | 113.1m | 34s | Tenblock | BDP Quadrangle

    In my mind, a better approach would've been to integrate the new buildings with the existing building through a cohesive park/paths/at-grade amenity area. Also, there's no reason why the new buildings need direct road access; they could've had a roundabout for dropoffs and a common entrance to...
