    Newmarket Redwood on Yonge DEAD | 75.8m | 22s | Redwood | Arcadis

    A project like this doesn't really just die. Likely will be reworked behind the scenes, a development/investment partner will be found, or sold to another proponent.

    Brampton City Lands Cricket Stadium | ?m | ?s | City of Brampton

    New York City FC rotates between playing out of the Yankees and the Mets stadium currently, for which they are considered a laughing stock. Watching games there are absolutely brutal and the viewing experience on TV is absolutely horrendous, and it is questionable if the field dimensions even...

    Brampton City Lands Cricket Stadium | ?m | ?s | City of Brampton

    I don't have much knowledge on cricket field dimensions, but it would be interesting if this were to become the first mixed-use cricket and soccer stadium in North America. This would provide a strong impetus to bring a CPL team to Brampton if an investor could be found.

    Toronto 1875 Steeles Avenue West | 129.65m | 39s | Tenblock | BDP Quadrangle

    New docs posted Feb 5, 2024 for the 2nd resubmission. Heights remain the same, but additional density in the proposal including more (and from the wording, higher-quality) affordable housing which @HousingNowTO will be interested in. Revised renderings from arch plans: It is also very...

    Toronto Thorncliffe Park Transit-Oriented Community | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure ON

    What is amusing is that Thorncliffe and Flemingdon Park were originally constructed as upper-middle class communities in mind. It is maybe a good example of how access to services, amenities, and employment (these two areas despite being proximal to the core, are still >1h commute to the...

    Toronto Thorncliffe Park Transit-Oriented Community | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure ON

    Office at this location is a silly idea and won't be accepted by the market.

    Toronto Yonge City Square Residences | 117.09m | 32s | Gupta | Arcadis

    Launched in February, flopped due to ridiculous pricing, and re-launched over the summer with a new sales team (RDS Brokerage) leading the sales. Floorplate was also redesigned in the process I believe with more efficient layouts to attract a greater pool of buyers.

    Toronto 2525 Bathurst Street | 49.38m | 13s | Cromwell | Arcadis

    Bizarre that there is no signs yet of leasing activity for this project, with it being so near to completion.

    Toronto 980 Dufferin | 124.63m | 37s | Hazelview | Turner Fleischer

    Does that make 4 cranes up for this site in total?

    Toronto 888 Dupont | 53.9m | 14s | TAS | SA

    Construction permits in place or is this just demo work?

    Vaughan 72 Steeles Avenue West | 199.7m | 60s | Humbold | Kirkor

    For the curious, the latest plans calls for 1,423 parking spaces and 2,596 bicycle spaces.

    Vaughan 72 Steeles Avenue West | 199.7m | 60s | Humbold | Kirkor

    Further revisions last Fall. SPA dropped for the three western towers, looks like this will be the first phase, with the 60-storey Yonge Street tower listed as phase 2. Site is now 60, 59, 45 & 38-storeys and totaling 2,532 units. Steeles facing tower: Yonge facing tower: More renders:

    Toronto SmartCentres Eglinton West | ?m | 60s | SmartCentres | Turner Fleischer

    My understanding is that these rules were put in place as a result of the early 90's real estate crash and to prevent condo projects from looking like a Harry Stinson-esque misadventure. Canada is indeed a unique market, but the investor-friendly condo floorplates do actually sale well, and the...

    Toronto SmartCentres Eglinton West | ?m | 60s | SmartCentres | Turner Fleischer

    It would also drive new condo development to a screeching halt under current financial regulatory rules. If the objective is to force new development to be purpose-built rental, then sure, but a majority of the new rental supply comes from investor-driven condo development being rented out on...

    Toronto Exhibition Transit Oriented Community: Jefferson Site | 71.9m | 19s | Infrastructure ON | SvN

    The massing for these proposed buildings are about 40-storeys too short.

    Hamilton 166-190 Main Street West | 87.1m | 27s | BentallGreenOak | Kirkor

    When I see an opportunity to tag @Northern Light and have him review planting choices at new developments, I will take it. Pulled from the CoA link. BentallGreenOak talks a good corporate ESG game typically, curious if their talk matches the walk through use of native and non-invasive species...
