    Toronto The Diamond | 101.14m | 36s | Neudorfer | Gabriel Bodor

    Shouldn't the lead designer's credentials be brought into question?

    Vaughan CG Tower | 188.97m | 60s | Cortel Group | BDP Quadrangle

    Will they remove those power lines someday? They look ridiculous.

    Toronto Pinnacle One Yonge | 345.5m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    That grey pattern on the windows looks great when zoomed up close but is starting to look like crap from afar. Almost like a weird spandrel pattern.

    Toronto Pearl Place | 121m | 34s | Conservatory Group | Richmond Architects

    These North York projects along Yonge are taking forever to be approved and built..

    Toronto 110 Eglinton East | 236.55m | 58s | Madison Group | Rafael Viñoly

    I wonder how they plan to build the pedestrian access connecting Eglington to Roehampton when there's currently a parking tunnel between 77 and 89 Roehampton...

    Toronto Burke Condominiums | 163.4m | 53s | Concert | Arcadis

    I can forgive the quality if they remove and bury those ridiculous power lines. But not expecting much.

    Toronto 34 Maitland | 183m | 56s | Hazelview | Turner Fleischer

    Are "bronzey" windows going to be used on the towers, or is the hue just a reflection?

    Toronto M2M Condos | 129.9m | 40s | Aoyuan | Wallman Architects

    Tous les Jours is the second largest South Korean bakery behind Paris Baguette (the one near Yonge and Sheppard). They're baked on-site.

    Toronto Artistry Condos | 103.5m | 29s | Tribute | Graziani + Corazza

    It's not even the overuse of spandrel. It's the low-quality glass. Toronto developers gotta learn that the ugly effect of spandrel glass can be somewhat mitigated with the application of curtain wall-like glass: eg. One Pacific Condos in VanCity

    I love how people are taking pics of this building every single day in anticipation of the window quality lmao

    Toronto Artistry Condos | 103.5m | 29s | Tribute | Graziani + Corazza

    Toronto really has a knack for building monstrosities in its most prominent sites... A streak of beautiful development proposals then clonk! One of these comes along and destroys the aesthetic build-up. Almost as if the city knows how to put itself back in place.

    Can someone please tell me where the marketing suite is being built?

    Toronto 252 Church | 166.1m | 52s | CentreCourt | Arcadis

    That's what I don't get. We're not a 2nd tier city. We should be setting examples. Instead, aesthetically we're simply planting concrete bars into the ground and expecting people to live in them, while doing the bare minimum to improve the shared space for the people interacting with that...

    Toronto 252 Church | 166.1m | 52s | CentreCourt | Arcadis

    Yes, road pavement + a minimal amount of effort put into maintaining sidewalks will improve the aesthetics a lot. This is evident when you compare Bloor Street vs downtown Yonge Street. While we can't compete with Vancouver's natural beauty, Bloor Street suggests that Toronto can find its own...

    Toronto 252 Church | 166.1m | 52s | CentreCourt | Arcadis

    As someone studying urban planning, I'm trying to figure out for myself why TO streets look infinitely more depressing than Vancouver despite the building architecture being relatively similar to each other. And I'm starting to think it has to do with a combination of landscape architecture +...
