    Toronto | MEC Queen Street (Mountain Equipment Coop) | 21m | 3s | Parallax | Sweeny &Co

    to add to @MetroMan's point, Soho Street is a very nice street and there was a lot of potential to use it for inspiration

    Toronto | 99 Blue Jays Way | 155m | 47s | CentreCourt | IBI Group

    Not very inspiring but it is clean and simple. I'm liking the move towards more colours and materiality.

    Toronto | RioCan Hall | 143m | 40s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    This section of Richmond between John and Spadina might become one of my favourite segments of the city. Unique, contrasting architectural styles and material selection (tableau, QRC, the Carlyle, Peter and Adelaide, Picasso, 330 Richmond all offer some relief from the typical Toronto glass...

    Toronto | 544 King West | 52m | 12s | Allied | Hariri Pontarini

    I agree regarding the planning concerns discussed above. It's also unfortunate how the 2018 design was scrapped. I particularly liked how grand the King / Brant intersection was addressed

    Toronto | Form Condos | 51m | 14s | Tridel | architectsAlliance

    There is no method to the madness here. They took whatever leftover grey + white material and fins and threw it together.

    Toronto | 335 Yonge | 106m | 30s | Lalani | Zeidler

    this is terribly embarassing. Just because something is coined "infill" (which 100m really doesn't cut in IMHO) doesn't mean it shouldn't contribute to good city building, especially at such a visible and prominent corner.

    Toronto | J. Davis House | ?m | 9s | Mattamy Homes | Graziani + Corazza

    I like it but I'll admit that my standards have dropped since moving to Toronto. It's not a mess of mullions and spandrel, has inset balconies mostly, and creates a dialogue with the structube building across the street which has familiar elements.

    Toronto | Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts | 156m | 45s | Daniels | RAW Design

    does anyone know why spandrel is always chosen in the drabbest colour? With the amount of it on this one, if they had picked a bright yellow or red, at least it would have popped. The towers (and their beige) have absolutely no relation to the "city of the arts" moniker (which i know has to do...

    Toronto | The Well | 174m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    sure is taking them long to start cladding the office tower. The anticipation is killing me!

    Toronto | 700 Bay Street | 95m | 32s | KingSett Capital | Quadrangle

    definitely brightens up that drab stretch and corner

    Toronto | Residences of 488 University Avenue, The | 207m | 55s | Amexon | Core Architects

    I like how the top resolves the tower nicely. If we are going to be getting glass boxes, this is how it should be done.

    Toronto | Whitehaus Condominiums | 107m | 31s | Lifetime | Diamond Schmitt

    The worst part is that the brown cladding isn't being extended all the way up the podium. The cladding as shown above is as high as it will go before switching to the messier white

    Toronto | King Portland Centre and Kingly Condos | 58m | 15s | Allied | Hariri Pontarini

    Love that the attention to detail was carried over to the residential tower. The black, multi-level frames forming an outline around the windows are a nice touch. Looks sharp!

    Toronto | 19 Duncan | 187m | 58s | Westbank | Hariri Pontarini

    I trust in Westbank to deliver. The execution on Vancouver House was top notch

    Toronto | Form Condos | 51m | 14s | Tridel | architectsAlliance

    Complete and utter garbage. Those last two rows of spandrel on the crown are really the cherry on top.

    Toronto | 33 Bloor East | ?m | 17s | Epic | WZMH

    Looks great, very Calatrava

    Toronto | Clover on Yonge, The | 148m | 44s | Cresford | architectsAlliance

    Sad about the clear glass on the west facing balconies but the rest is coming together great

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 240m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    This building's unconventional shape makes me like its girth. It's funky and doesn't take itself too seriously like most rectangular buildings. It reminds me of developments in Central London, though the public realm leaves a lot to be desired (as judging from the renders)

    Toronto | 71 Redpath Avenue | 69m | 21s | The Benvenuto Group | NEUF

    As someone who has lived in the neighbourhood (and enjoyed it!), I hate to say it: this is where architecture goes to die. The majority of what is at or being built at Yonge and Eglinton is just dismal. Goes to show that aesthetics =/= livability
