    Toronto 422 Wellington West | 14.33m | 2s | Allied | ERA Architects

    I appreciate this project because it shows you don’t need to build a high rise over a heritage building to restore it.

    Lesser recognized buildings in Toronto that you enjoy

    That building desperately needs its cornice reconstructed. Always bothered me to see that strip of cheap corrugated metal scarring it. And get some central A/C in there while they’re at it.

    Toronto Theatre District Residence & Riu Plaza Hotel | 156.05m | 49s | Plaza | BDP Quadrangle

    That paint on the townhouses still looks so off. Why is it magenta? I guarantee any imperfections in the unpainted brickwork would have just given it character. And the window trim should have been a darker colour.

    Toronto 4696 Yonge Street | 131.3m | 40s | Skale | Turner Fleischer

    Solid looking design, glad to see it's not all spandrelly.

    Toronto 2 Queen West | 34.44m | 7s | Cadillac Fairview | Zeidler

    That gold leaf on the lettering is amazing.

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

    Looks like these guardrails have been repainted. Most likely the bridge repaint will match them, if anyone's still wondering about the colour.

    Toronto Love Park | 3m | 1s | City of Toronto | CCxA

    A suspended heart would be a bit too on-the-nose I think, like the pond itself is already a heart, we get it. Could be a safety hazard too with the winds we get.

    Toronto U of T: Academic Wood Tower | 77m | 14s | U of T | Patkau

    Wow how thick are those crossbeams?

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

    What will bring this from OK to Pretty Nice Actually is if they will install those angled panels on the side of the balconies like in the renders. Nice colours so far though, and the pattern that references the old roofline.

    Toronto 299 Ossington | ?m | 3s | ROC Developments | StudioAC

    Oh this poor building. Should have just been put out of its misery.

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

    It’s already treated to even out the patches. That’s as good as it’s going to get, considering how damaged and stained it was before.

    Toronto 126 Avenue | 40.07m | 11s | Taheri | Icon

    It’s the less special infill buildings that contribute the most to the street experience overall. Good on them for recognizing their value without an official designation. If only MORE would be saved like this to preserve what makes Toronto, Toronto.

    Toronto Canary House | 50.3m | 13s | Dream | BDP Quadrangle

    Toronto has a lot of Victorian buildings with extreme asymmetry, it was just part of the style

    Toronto Canary House | 50.3m | 13s | Dream | BDP Quadrangle

    Any plans to remove the paint from the brick?

    Toronto ANX | 48.07m | 13s | Freed | Teeple Architects

    Those curved panels are so good.

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

    Tempted to turn this into a Constructivist style poster

    Toronto 2010 Yonge | 59.8m | 14s | Sud Group | Graziani + Corazza

    First proposal I’ve seen that looks decent with that kind of wedding cake massing.

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

    It looks so streamline moderne now. It's clear there was an architectural intent to it that was obscured this whole time by industrial motley and decay.
