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

    While I love a fun and thoughtful colour palette - my first reaction is that these combinations sit so harshly against each other. But who knows - maybe they'll grow on me?

    Toronto Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    It's so refreshing to see streets free from ugly utility poles and wires.

    Toronto Birch House at Canary Landing | 50.3m | 13s | Dream | Stantec

    I'm so confused by the perspective of this photo. All that green space in the background looks like an urban forest.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I can't help but feel that Toronto underutilizes the chicane. Instead of another set of lights here, I wonder if this would have been better suited to a chicane? Slow down the driving speed of the vehicles with physical barriers, rather than forcing a complete stop.

    This is a big one. Four way stops impede the flow of naturally moving traffic, creating artificial jams. Yield/Give Way signage is much smarter for a residential intersection.

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

    Welcome to page 900! It's taken just over 11 years to get to this point. How many more before this project sees completion?

    I think Toronto could benefit from using Chicanes on our streets to help with traffic calming. The benefits are numerous - including more green space. https://www.sfbetterstreets.org/find-project-types/pedestrian-safety-and-traffic-calming/traffic-calming-overview/chicanes/

    Toronto strikes again! Street pole installed in downtown bike lane

    Toronto 15-17 Elm | 99m | 30s | Fora | PARTISANS

    I want to like these renders more than I do. Whilst I agree that this bold architectural facade is a welcome shift from the usual bland iterative design we're so used to, but there's something about the awkward proportions that look heavy and somewhat unrefined.

    I kinda love these guys. How can we get them to Toronto? Just a minute

    Guess I'm walking today... What's going on around St Clair West? Does this happen often?

    Toronto home: Power and Adelaide | 78.33m | 22s | Great Gulf | Core Architects

    Ugh, yet another furniture store. I suppose at least it's not a cannabis store. This neighbourhood could have really benefited from a couple of restaurants or grocer.

    Toronto Ontario Line: Corktown Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    Historical structures uncovered recently at the Corktown site.

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

    Agreed. I go by this build a few times per week. While I doubt it will ever win any architectural awards, it's a nice pop of colour which is a welcome change from the grey and glass towers we're so used to. Coupled with the black framing, it's got a Mondrian vibe going on which is a neat quirk.

    Toronto Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    For me, the ideal urban density is that of Barcelona, Oslo, Paris or Stockholm; at 5 - 10 storeys the scale just feels right. With this scale, population densities can support transit and solid amenities, but you don't feel boxed in, wind tunnels are less-severe. The experience is much more...

    Toronto Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    I've always assumed the mismatched cladding was to create the illusion of multiple buildings, rather than one hulking mass. IMO it is, so far, serving that purpose.

    Looks like they forgot to include the Davenport Rd Extension into the Artist's Rendering.

    I wonder what the condo fees are? :eek:

    Can anyone help me understand what the purpose of the trench is?

    Toronto St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    What is it that upsets you about the design? Personally, I think it's a great addition to the area.
