    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    Adding express service to the line is a great idea. But that's not the full story of what's happening here. Bloor and Weston are seeing a 50% service reduction while Union and Pearson see the same levels of service (perhaps a few minutes faster for the express trains). It is a service cut and...

    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    Kind of amazing that we managed to build an airport train that was so successful at being regular transit, that now it's being "nerfed" so the regular people can't use it as much. Are there any plans in the works to expand the fleet so the high demand can be properly serviced, rather than just...

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    A local group that has continued to advocate for the connection between Lappin and Antler is hosting an event next weekend. I want to be optimistic that the connection could happen, because of how I would benefit from it personally. But I've been reading the UT forums for long enough now to...

    Laneway and Garden Houses (various)

    The laneway between Gladstone and Bartlett, just west of Dovercourt Park, has a ton of laneway homes now. I counted at least 7, with another under construction.

    Laneway and Garden Houses (various)

    There's a standalone laneway lot for sale behind 774 Manning: Curious if anyone knows how building on a rear lot like this would work? My understanding of the laneway housing by-laws is that laneway structures...

    Toronto XO Condos | 53.64m | 14s | Lifetime | Core Architects

    This pic of the building is currently on the front page of r/toronto

    Toronto 208 Bartlett | 9m | 3s | Sheeraz Ahmad Siddiqui | High Park Architects

    Perhaps it's rude to say, but this has not exactly been the most "competent" nimby effort I've witnessed in our fine city.

    Toronto 208 Bartlett | 9m | 3s | Sheeraz Ahmad Siddiqui | High Park Architects

    Someone has submitted a 13 page objection letter, complete with numerous photos. Unfortunately, they've misread the plans and have imagined a brick wall that doesn't exist. I've approximated the location of their "red box" on the submitted plans, and highlighted the existing building.

    The neighbours are NOT pleased with this one

    Toronto Scout Condos | 38.65m | 12s | Graywood | CMV

    I wish this project used that lovely gold-coloured metal along St. Clair as well. Weirdly enough, I noticed "The Campbell" on Dupont has a similar palette of materials, but they used the gold at street level and basic silver on the rest of the tower, the exact opposite of this one!

    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    I agree we can't definitively blame Metrolinx here until more info comes out about why the brake discs failed like this. But I wouldn't call it a trivial situation - our airport express rail system is completely offline for the indefinite future. This is a very big deal!

    Laneway and Garden Houses (various)

    My partner and I just signed a lease to move into a laneway house! Can't wait, after 12 years of living in dorms, apartment towers and condos it'll be nice to have a slightly more private space, with no elevators.

    It seems Peter Clewes from aA doesn't like this project very much

    Toronto Craft Residences | 30.67m | 8s | Gairloch | BDP Quadrangle

    Comparing the front elevation with the lovely brick detail and the rounded corners to the back with its blocky angular plane ziggurat gives me shades of "Homer impresses Marge".

    Toronto 980 Lansdowne Avenue | 101.14m | 36s | Neudorfer | Gabriel Bodor

    Biked by this one the other day and was surprised by how much I didn't hate the panels in person. The colours, contrasting black lines and matte finish make it look much nicer than typical spandrel, very different from the awful glossy grey on Fuse 2. That said, it'll probably age very poorly.

    Hand laid brick, on a condo, in Toronto? Amazing.

    Toronto ZIGG Condos | 42.97m | 11s | Madison Group | Kirkor Architects

    At little bit late, but I can answer that one. It's an aluminum siding/soffit product called "Longboard".
