    Toronto EQ Bank Tower | 105.18m | 23s | First Gulf | Sweeny &Co

    It has been over three years since the groundbreaking, Nov. 18, 2018! To put that into perspective, 65 King St. and 160 Front St. started construction end of July 2018 and Jan. 1, 2019 respectively. The cranes are down on 65 King and 160 Front has soared to 20 stories. Aside from the...

    Toronto 2189 Lake Shore West | 195.97m | 59s | Marlin Spring | Wallman Architects

    In honour of their rapid decline, Wallman presents......."Le Skid Mark," much to the dismay of Toronto's waterfront. Unless the materials are top notch this could really look tacky.

    Yonge-Dundas Square/Sankofa Square (Brown + Storey Architects)

    Toronto will never be NYC and nor should it strive to be. That which distinguishes Toronto from NYC are some of Toronto's greatest attributes, namely its old neighbourhoods which buttress up against the downtown core, its ravines and its tree canopy to name a few. Why settle for a lesser...

    Mississauga M1 & M2 at M City | 197.81m | 60s | Rogers Real Estate | Core Architects

    Mississauga M1 & M2 at M City | 197.81m | 60s | Rogers Real Estate | Core Architects

    Jasonzed will be missed. He belongs in the UT Hall of Fame if there is such a thing. I looked forward to his consistent and lofty contributions from week to week. My condolences to his friends and family. He made a difference.

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

    The palaces of the Loire Valley are spectacular. The great temples of Japan are spectacular. The Old Town of Prague is spectacular. This building's form is average at best. Its materials are above average. Its overall design is below average for Piano (which nevertheless is above average...

    Mississauga M4 at M City | 215.6m | 67s | Rogers Real Estate | Core Architects

    Interesting podium, absolutely lame rooftop.

    Toronto Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    If the up-zoning was based upon a false design then at this point the zoning should be in question, if not pulled altogether. If the City doesn't find some way to exert design standards on super-talls then expect 90 story "Alters" in your future. The fact that Dream has also just recently...

    Toronto Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    "Bait and switch", should be Toronto's new city slogan or better yet, "We The Suckers."

    Toronto Centricity Condos | 170.7m | 53s | Graywood | Turner Fleischer

    I'd be more inclined to go 1-10 for 3 categories; 1) Form (Massing, Shape, Context), 2) Materials (Glazing, Trim, Use of Spandrel etc... ), and 3) Design (Overall Aesthetic; Street-scape, Public Space, Lobby, Pedestal, Tower, Roof Line), ...then divide the result by three. Heritage...

    Toronto 75 on The Esplanade | 99.97m | 29s | Harhay | a—A

    So far this is looking better than the renderings. Next up balconies, lobby/street, and mechanical. Things are looking good on this corner.

    Toronto Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure ON

    There seems to be a will to save Zeerust.....before it turns into Zee-dust.

    Pinewood Studios 2.5 Million Sq/ft development (1000 Condos, Hotel, Retail)

    Not sure where to put this.

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

    The quality heritage retention, the faceted exterior and the punched in balconies make this project a win IMO.

    Toronto Adagio | 85m | 26s | Menkes | Giannone Petricone

    Menkes throwing another one on the pile. I guess we can expect the same bait and switch for the Menkes /GP project at 33 Sherbourne. Nothin' but render porn folks!

    Toronto Form Condos | 50.59m | 14s | Tridel | a—A

    Was this AA's answer to Alsop? Really did themselves proud.
