    Toronto | Nobu Residences Toronto | 157m | 45s | Madison Group | Teeple Architects

    Agree fully on Mascot, but you don't think Toronto has a good patio culture?

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Great news! I assume this could also be in support of weekend service?

    Traders Bldg redev (625 Church Street @ Hayden, Great Gulf, ?s, ?)

    Aren't they required to keep or replace this office space since it's less than 500m from mass transit?

    Toronto | 320 Bay | ?m | 56s | Triovest | Sweeny &Co

    Remember the video where Brad Lamb and Stinson are working together -- I think it was on a condo in Waterloo or something -- and Stinson asks Lamb if they should ask potential buyers to remove their shoes so they wouldn't mess up the floors in the model suite; and remember Lamb's reaction?

    Toronto | 320 Bay | ?m | 56s | Triovest | Sweeny &Co

    It looks like the heritage elements are being preserved, so this is great infill in my mind.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I just noticed that express service is planned for the Stouffville line during peak times. I believe this is the first time we've ever seen this proposed. Great news!

    This will be very convenient for the athletes and spectators attending the Pan Am Games.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    I always wonder why Metrolinx doesn't leave more room for future expansion. I mean, it wasn't that long ago when LSE got its third track and now a fourth is being discussed already. It seems so much more expensive in the long run to only add one track at a time. I get that doing it this way...

    Is it possible to bring back the previous and next thread buttons? It's now more work to move between posts. Overall, I love the changes though! :-)

    Richmond Adelaide Centre: 120 & 130 Adelaide St W Recladding (WZMH Architects)

    Between these buildings and the Bay Adelaide Centre, Adelaide is a bit too full of reflective sky-coloured glass. I find it disorienting as well. It's like the individual buildings are invisible.

    Station Town (Hwy 48 at Castlemore, Markham, National Homes, 18s x2, towns, Kirkor)

    Mods: another change to this one. It's now "Station Town" by National Homes, which will now consist of two 18-story buildings and 56 townhomes. Website: https://nationalhomes.com/station-town-in-markham/ The design of the project is light years ahead of the other proposals in the posts above...

    Looks like one is indeed planned: http://urbantoronto.ca/news/2018/01/well-updated-drawings-reveal-further-design-refinements

    Toronto | 330 Richmond | 94m | 27s | Greenpark | Core Architects

    It also makes me wonder if Cineplex will move to the Well and Riocan will simply redevelop Riocan Square into condos with retail at the base, and possibly a hotel or office space. It would certainly be in Riocan's interest to drive traffic to the Well. In either case, let's hope the next...

    It's weird seeing archival photos from the late 90s. So many great memories at that theatre, but redevelopment makes absolute sense given how much the neighbourhood has changed. It will be tough living without a theatre in the area for years while this is being redeveloped though.

    I'm surprised no one has posted about the cuts to Stouffville service:

    Is the food court going to flood every time we get heavy rains?
