    Toronto Waterlink at Pier 27 | 43.89m | 14s | Cityzen | a—A

    Toronto The Carlaw | ?m | 12s | Streetcar | TACT Architecture

    What's on the site today is 3 storeys, but its not a 'limit' because its not limited to 3 storeys under the as of right zoning - you could build something up to 18 metres high without any need for an amendment. What I said was in response to you saying it was 'regulated' at 3 floors, which just...

    Toronto The Carlaw | ?m | 12s | Streetcar | TACT Architecture

    Well first of all, its not currently regulated to 3 floors. The zoning for the site allows a height of 18 metres which would allow a 5-6 storey building. Even so, I'm not sure how you can say the City agrees that either 3 floors or the 5-6 floors it already allows is a proper limit since the...

    587 Avenue Road (current 4s walkup apt building for sale, proposal for 15s tower)

    It is if the existing apartment building is rental, which it appears to be. There's a policy in the Official Plan that applies when 6 or more rental units are proposed to be removed and requires that the rental units must be replaced within the new development.

    Toronto Charlie Condos | 122.83m | 36s | Great Gulf | Diamond Schmitt

    gristle, I have to respectfully disagree with most of that. First, I don't think its fair to blame the Board for approving Charlie (if that's what your implying happened) when there was never a contested Board hearing for the application. Secondly, its not really fair to blame the Board for...

    Not sure if this has been confirmed somewhere in this thread, but as others have speculated, aA is the architect.

    Toronto 88 Scott Street | 203.9m | 58s | Concert | P + S / IBI

    To be fair I've never done this myself, but it's my understanding that once an application has been submitted to the City it is available to the public. I think the deal is you can view material at City Hall but you can't take anything with you or make copies. For this application new City Hall...

    Toronto 88 Scott Street | 203.9m | 58s | Concert | P + S / IBI

    If they've submitted a rezoning there should be elevations on file at the City. For all those up and arms about the yet-to-be-seen architecture of the building, it might be worth a trip to City Hall to take a look. As much as I haven't been the biggest fan of P+S in the past, I was actually...

    Toronto 88 Scott Street | 203.9m | 58s | Concert | P + S / IBI

    Architect is Page and Steele (IBI Group). The 58 storeys includes the 5 storey base, which incorporates the existing art deco building.

    Toronto Cinema Tower | 142.64m | 43s | Daniels | Kirkor Architects

    In fairness I'm not exactly sure why the variance is required but a reduction in the calculated GFA wouldn't reduce the outdoor amenity space requirement since the amount required by the by-law is a function of the number of units in the building rather than a ratio to the GFA. So it either...

    Toronto Cinema Tower | 142.64m | 43s | Daniels | Kirkor Architects

    The parking variance is just a technicality, it doesn't reflect any change to the building.

    Toronto The New Residences of Yorkville Plaza | 92.05m | 31s | Camrost-Felcorp | WZMH COMPLETE

    Now would probably be a good time to point out that City Council actually voted to approve the development prior to the hearing. The City came onside after several concessions by the developer to address their concerns regarding the view corridor - including reducing the height from 58 and 48...

    Toronto King Blue by Greenland | 155.75m | 48s | Greenland | Arcadis

    I agree with all of this but I think it should be a matter of finding a balance. There's a public benefit to heritage preservation just as there's also a public benefit to allowing the site to redevelopment. Effectively prohibiting any redevelopment of the site by saying the building can not be...

    Toronto Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Toronto | 203.9m | 52s | Lifetime | a—A

    Those stats reflect the original proposal prior to the revisions made throughout the approvals process and at the Board. I think the 52 storeys shown in the thread title is still accurate.

    Toronto Aura at College Park | 271.87m | 78s | Canderel | Graziani + Corazza

    Specifically, the S.37 agreement dedicates a contribution of $2,000,000 to the park and streetscape improvements. Also included in the S. 37 agreement is a requirement to provide future PATH connections (not that that's news I don't think).

    Toronto Waterlink at Pier 27 | 43.89m | 14s | Cityzen | a—A

    It belongs to Water Front Toronto, so far as I know. They did a land swap with Cityzen so they'd be able to put a park/'promenade' along the Yonge Street slip.
