    Two Hundred The Beach | 24m | 6s | The Riedel Group | Richard Ziegler COMPLETE

    Here are a few shots from about an hour ago. I have to agree with insertnamehere, the building is pretty disappointing. One Rainsford definitely turned out better.

    Toronto | Sixty Colborne Condos | 82m | 25s | Freed | architectsAlliance

    I think this looks much better than a bright orange glass (which is what I was expecting) would have. This brings a touch of colour without being garish or tacky. I love it!

    Two Hundred The Beach | 24m | 6s | The Riedel Group | Richard Ziegler COMPLETE

    This is looking significantly different from the renders. The stone (probably faux-stone like the Building next door) portion looks like it won’t be going right to the top as it does in the render. The shape of the whole top floor of the building is quite different really.

    This is so Toronto.

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    To be honest, those tower designs are pretty underwhelming. I think it works for the middle building with the heritage-esque podium, since it echoes the dynamic of buildings like QRC. But overall I was hoping for something with more variety. I guess its better to have memorable podiums (podia?)...

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    This just goes to show that it is possible to design something that feels like it draws from the past without being kitschy or fake. This is the kind of thing I want to see more of in Toronto. Can't wait to see it built!

    Toronto | 8-20 Widmer Street | 183m | 56s | Scott Morris

    I believe those were already torn down. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Two Hundred The Beach | 24m | 6s | The Riedel Group | Richard Ziegler COMPLETE

    I hope so. We love meat on the beach and would hate to see it go, but could also use another grocery store in the area.

    Toronto | Berczy Park Revitalization | ?m | ?s

    I really don't understand why these things seem to happen in Toronto, and not anywhere else. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like there are a pretty wide variety of impediments to having a nice urban environment that simply don't exist in other places. I mean, why is it so hard to get nice garbage...

    Toronto | Massey Tower Condos | 206.95m | 60s | MOD Developments | Hariri Pontarini

    I wasn't really convinced I'd like this one, but now it's (literally) growing on me. I can't wait to see it rise!

    Toronto | 400 King West | 157m | 48s | Plaza | Quadrangle

    Is that curved glass I see !? I like it!

    It makes me so happy to know that the public realm here is in the hands of Claude Cormier. I actually have faith that we will get something of quality here. Also, after the huge success of Berczy park, I think the inclusion of cats is a great idea.

    Two Hundred The Beach | 24m | 6s | The Riedel Group | Richard Ziegler COMPLETE

    Here's one I took yesterday. Not much has changed since the previous post. It really does seem like this has been proceeding at a snail's pace, but it's finally starting to come along.

    That's incredibly disappointing. I've been really looking forward to this one.

    Toronto | Selby, The | 166m | 50s | Tricon Capital | bKL Architecture

    I think the texture and colour of the brick looks great, but am I the only one who notices and/or is bothered by the fact that you can clearly see the joints between panels? This seems to be pretty much the norm when it comes to precast brick cladding solutions (even if it is real brick)--and...

    Toronto | Bauhaus Condos | 100.88m | 32s | Lamb Development | architectsAlliance

    I have to say, I'm pretty consistently impressed with what I see from Lamb. It's obviously hard to tell from a single image, but it looks pretty sleek. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the awkward relationship to the building on the right. The podium of this tower could line up with the...

    Toronto | 101 Spadina Avenue | ?m | 47s | Devron Developments | Diamond Schmitt

    Wow! I actually really like the look of that. Interesting massing that accomplishes the same thing as the standard podium + point tower combo while actually feeling different, and what looks to be interesting cladding choice! Bring it on.

    Toronto | Sixty Colborne Condos | 82m | 25s | Freed | architectsAlliance

    I have to say, I would be totally ok with this remaining at its current height. I love how it's filling in that corner. Oh well!

    Yeah I've actually seen racoons walking around the lobby as I've passed at night.
