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

    This is the kind of thing that I wish would be shown to rebut the annual whining campaign about “Toronto hates fun”. Why are fences put up and sledding not allowed? Well if you want things you take care of them. Why is there traffic? Because if you want an elevated highway you need to maintain...

    Toronto Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Harbour Square Park | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    Saw a picture of a revamped Yonge & QQ yesterday, thought it looked nice then realized- oh that would mean a new path through the Ferry Terminal- wait is that still a thing? Then went through the Retail Review and noted it was listed as “past redesign not funded”. Totally forgot this project...

    Toronto Cherry House at Canary Landing | 50.32m | 13s | Dream | COBE Architects

    Something I’ve begun to wonder about- you see this with a lot of buildings where they’re halfway up on height but start putting up spandrels and cladding etc. buuuut then - meh, they stop. I imagine there’s reasons like staffing, supply, and some need for access or safety- it is there any...

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

    BlogTO using a picture of the old North Market in a non-vintage post. Made me go back - its last day was 9yrs ago this June. So our south-south market tent is almost 9yrs old. Let’s hear it for the durability of tent. Looking forward to its 10th birthday next year.

    Toronto Maple House at Canary Landing | 89.61m | 26s | Dream | COBE Architects

    First- I didn’t actually think these overhead lights were on, but they manage to be indirectly direct, no spillage. Next, they’ve put bollards at one part of the stretch. Something they need to do on as many sides of this lane as possible (but haven’t) Here’s a basic two level unit. Now...

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

    It was barely perceptible by eye, but the time lapse (not great quality) and long exposure on the iPhone captured those images. Then the clouds rolled back in again

    Views from the Keating bridge and above the debris sediment area

    Toronto The Goode Condos | 111.4m | 33s | Graywood | a—A

    K, I’m confused. I went back to check the forum posts as the project page offers nothing to combat it here- but this looks like the podium is going to an 8th floor… every diagram has shown 6. They just forget to stop? Should I go tell them? This is the podium end, not the tower. What am I missing?

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

    The way those cladding tiles are just taunting

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

    Did I miss a timeline for this bridge? Checked the waterfrontTO page, the CBC article- nada. I imagine the Parliament slip needs to be done first, as well as the landscaping and path on Villiers. So what, another 20yrs?

    Toronto Parliament Slip | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto | West 8

    My personal theory is that they’re relocating the infamous Mirvish Art Vault formerly in the Port Lands. So under the radar too…

    Toronto CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    I look forward to the YouTube walkers visiting this park, then tiktok’rs telling us about it a few days later, and a week later BlogTO’s inevitable “Toronto’s got a brand new secret park in the sky AND people are outraged!” article

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

    I need to go back on the presentations to see if this has houses for bats and sparrows… I liked the ones with houses for bats and sparrows.

    Bridge is still up, boat is docked, planes flying

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

    It was still up today (Thurs). I’d only bothered to look because I’d flipped on a live Johnny Strides video the other day, and some cyclist had asked him if the bridge was open. He’d mistakenly thought he meant the yellow one and told him yes. So no apparently no signage.

    Yup, Bascule is still upright

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

    Huzzah! Here’s my question tho, do planners have regularly updated rubrics that calculate the maximum density based on acreage and roadways? Like, Villiers is X sq km, there are 3 roadways with x capacity - and the 3rd bridge actually adds Xmin onto a commute therefore it’s likely that only X%...
