    Toronto Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Urban Toronto-ists, the impossible has happened. The lower concourse ceiling has actually been painted. !!!!!!! p.s. Oh. Well. I see I'm not the first to notice. Oh well. Still, as far as "things that should have been done years ago" go, this one is practically momentous.

    Toronto 95 St Joseph | 134.7m | 40s | Daniels | Core Architects

    My Gawd, that layout is a horror.

    Toronto Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    The Swish Allée, I think would be pretty funny. Or Barbara Please. Or even Oh Her. But those might sound a little frivolous. From railway terms: Watchdog, Axlebox, Bogie, Doodlebug,The Grab Iron, The Spike, Hotbox, Interchange, Caboose, Junction, The Meet, Notch 8, The Zig Zag, The Whistle Stop...

    Toronto Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Personally, if I won the lottery, I'd open a gay bar. As far as I know it's never been attempted in a major transportation terminal.

    Kitchener Station Park | 184.95m | 50s | VanMar | Kirkor

    Dropped by the site today. Quite a dig! A new raised addition to the front of the existing two towers, that angles back across the back of the property, for Towers C & D.

    Toronto Social at Church + Dundas | 164.89m | 52s | Pemberton | RAW Design

    Just in case the overhang doesn't keep the rain off you, the awnings will won't either. Cool.

    Hamilton Gore Park Condos | 106.9m | 32s | HBSC | KNYMH

    Those Gore Park facades have to be kept, no matter what. The history they embody and their relation to the park, makes their preservation the absolute top priority for anything going in here. Hamilton devastated its historic downtown during it's big modernization leap in the late 60's. Repeating...

    Part 2: Funny. They reminded me of Jack Shadbolt's 'Northen Emblem' paintings. Anyhoo:

    Toronto Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Well I was in Union Station yesterday and I thought I'd try and find something new to photograph. For your delectation, a photo-list of all the taped-over chips, cracks and flaws in the existing Great Hall floor. Enjoy. Part 1:

    Toronto Bathurst Quay Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Kearns Mancini

    It looks absolutely amazing. It's old and new + cryptic and honest all at once.

    Toronto 164-168 Isabella Street | ?m | 67s | Elysium | Studio JCI

    I think moving the house for preservation's sake, while clearing up land for increased density is a good idea - we've seen it done succesfully a number of times in Toronto. It'd be better if they could find a way to do without that hefty cuboid attached to the front. I like that so much effort...
