    Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 2) | 298.99m | 90s | Menkes | architectsAlliance

    I have worked in the development industry / planning profession for nearly 20 years and I have literally never once heard anyone in the development industry or in planning or the architecture profession ever use the term "supertall". I have however seen it obsessed over on urban toronto...

    Lots of changes at GG and different leadership over the last couple of years... read into that what you will.

    Toronto | 8 Elm | 215m | 67s | Pemberton | IBI Group

    Call me crazy, but I'd suggest that arguably the most important residential development (architecturally) in the history of Toronto is Bjarke Ingels King project by Westbank.... not exactly tall (but still very dense). It is the kind of building that is a game changer for a city, will attract...

    Toronto | Exchange District Condos | 232m | 72s | Camrost-Felcorp | IBI Group

    Other then Absolute, which was well executed, everything else you have said is pure nonsense - but if mid-range IBI designed towers between a mall & 8-lane suburban thoroughfare are what get you excited so be it.

    Toronto | Mirvish+Gehry Toronto | 329m | 91s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    The project design was neither "finished" nor "handed off" to Great Gulf when they took over the project - in fact it was far from it. Great Gulf has retained Gehry as the architect and he and his team have been leading the design/architectural process for the past couple of years from the...

    Toronto | YSL Residences - Yonge Street Living (383 Yonge) | 299m | 85s | Cresford | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    Interesting things are happening which will come out soon enough if all goes well, but I'll leave it at that and go back to quietly lurking rather then making my rare posts.

    Toronto | YSL Residences - Yonge Street Living (383 Yonge) | 299m | 85s | Cresford | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    Either way, once the all the SPA details are made public this will be over 300. My point is that cities are experienced in real-life, not lists on computers or arbitrary measures like "super tall"; but for those that obsess over that specific terminology there are other things coming they can...

    Toronto | YSL Residences - Yonge Street Living (383 Yonge) | 299m | 85s | Cresford | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    WTF is the difference between a 299.x and a 300 meter building?

    Toronto | Mirvish+Gehry Toronto | 329m | 91s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    You guys worry too much. There is a ton of work happening behind the scenes and Gehry himself is very involved.

    1. He is very involved 2. You haven't seen the refined design 3. Gehry is about the details

    Toronto | 2 Carlton | 251m | 73s | Northam | IBI Group

    "Development Charges" "Municipal Land Transfer Tax" "Ontario Land Transfer Tax" "HST/GST" There are plenty of taxes being collected from development by municipal and provincial/federal governments to fund infrastructure.
