    Toronto | Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    My first impression, at least from the renderings, is that the mixed scale looks and feels like Yorkville.

    Toronto | Globe and Mail Centre, The | 83m | 17s | First Gulf | Diamond Schmitt

    Interesting. I wondering if First Gulf/Great Gulf still intends to move their head office there too? I suppose they still could, but they wouldn't be 'lead' tenant. Maybe relocate to the 21 Don Valley Parkway development? From the Globe and Mail...

    High Park, The (1990 Bloor West) | 38m | 11s | North Drive | Quadrangle COMPLETE

    I think the white one is the other building, 1990 Bloor, not the 2114 Bloor.

    Toronto | Berczy, The | 42m | 13s | Concert | IBI Group

    Just some general impressions from walking by this every day: -the window cladding quality and colour look great. -the contrast of the window cladding against the plain concrete looks great. Too bad its gonna be covered in brick. -with the set back and the slope, the building doesn't seem...

    Toronto | King East Centre | 134.10m | 37s | First Gulf | WZMH

    I think actually they are installing a black mullion on top of the existing metal (silver) frame. I was critical of the overall frankenstein nature of the entire complex (comparative to Metropolis/Toronto Life/10 Dundas) , including the Coca Cola addition, however, I now must admit that I...

    This is no doubt, a consequence of our condo boom, as this article suggests: Oodles of condos create a thirst for downtown office space http://www.torontolife.com/daily/informer/to-market-to-market/2012/04/18/condos-downtown-office-space/ I can definitely see this area in particular morphing...

    Looks like the wraps are coming off today (or at least in part?). From what I saw it looks very nice, the new glass and the black brick facade.

    Hm, well 222 The Esplanade which is right beside it on the east side of Princess is 12 stories, technically 13 since the 12th story is two floors.

    The podium itself would be equal to or potentially higher than the entire height of Mozo..

    Dollarama signage is up Dollarama signage is up. And yes, that big green patch is the background for the signage.

    Toronto | Modern, The | ?m | 17s | Empire | DTAH

    The balconies from a distance look like an above ground parking garage.. Kinda bunker like and heavy. However, I like the idea of having outdoor living spaces close to the street to domesticate the street away from its current transient nature. Not sure if glass balconies would have...

    Toronto | King East Centre | 134.10m | 37s | First Gulf | WZMH

    I'm hoping that big green patch is not part of the Dollarama signage. So far, as much as the retail additions have been very practical, this building is looking very Frankenstein-ish so far. To me its reminiscent of Metropolis/Toronto Life Square/10 Dundas East, where there is no...

    Looks like a Pet Valu store is moving in across the street on the north-west corner of Front and Princess (184 Front Street East). The previous tenant The Penthouse-Home Furnishings closed up a few weeks back.
