    And not a moment too soon,

    Toronto | 245 Queen Street East | 128m | 37s | ONE Properties | Arquitectonica

    I suppose you'd have to be high out of your mind anyway to want to spend any time there, so..

    Toronto | Keeley, The | 47.85m | 13s | TAS | Teeple Architects

    Great shots, but I had to do a double take on that first one. I don't know if it's the gloom or the samey townhouse blocks but that could easily be mistaken for the USSR circa 1980.

    Toronto | Via Bloor | 138.37m | 46s | Tridel | architectsAlliance

    There is the Loblaws at Broadview and Danforth that is about a 2 minute drive or 15 minute walk. Granted it's not the nicest Loblaws in the world but I'd hardly say the area is a food desert with 5 grocers in the immediate area.

    Toronto | 228 Wilson Avenue | 57m | 17s | Verdiroc | CGL Architects

    I love how in renderworld this building is situated next to a pristine meadow. I'm sure there are some deer frolicking just out of frame. Anyway, probably a wise move to go rental here, north facing units would be a damn hard sell.

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

    Sans Christmas ornaments, this lobby would look like something out of Gattaca.

    Or if the marketing for thish ish being presented by Sean Connery ;)

    Toronto | Eau du Soleil Condos | 227.98m | 66s | Empire | Richmond Architects

    Great shots! Looks like they're at floor 20 on the taller tower? So probably a little less than a year before this tops out.

    It's gonna be yuge for this area. Yuuge. Believe me. Believe me.

    Yonge-Dundas Square (Brown + Storey Architects)

    OMG, someone else remembers Active Surplus! The giant gorilla at the front door scared the crap out of me as a kid. On topic, the square is already filled with an insane menagerie of commercial billboards with ads that change weekly and hold no meaning to anyone. Why not add to that dissonance...

    Toronto | Hudson Toronto Hotel | 46m | 14s | Niche | architectsAlliance

    Boutique hotel could still be interesting. Preservation of the existing buildings in some form would be a boon to a hotel looking to distinguish itself.

    87 Ethel Ave (Red Eagle Enterprises, 7s-19s, Sol-Arch)

    Hopefully new ownership means a new plan and we will never have to see that Thing Which Must Not Be Named on the last page again..

    Do you know on what grounds the appeal is being filed? Lack of decision? the E-status page doesn't say anything.

    Toronto | Richview Square | 77m | 22s | Trinity Group | Core Architects

    This was my local plaza when I lived in Toronto. I'm actually glad the strip mall is being retained as I found it weirdly charming with its outdoor colonnades and small retail units. The current parking lot is terribly configured and rarely full. However as mentioned above you can bet the locals...

    Keep that one for a Throwback Thursday in a few years!

    Toronto | Portland Commons | 71.32m | 15s | Carttera | Sweeny &Co

    Interesting design. Those cute little houses on Draper Street are going to be entombed between this and the Well though. Wonder how much sun that street will get in 10 years.

    Toronto | The One | 308.6m | 85s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Not disagreeing that an observation deck on The One would be striking but just as an anecdote I visited that place a few years ago when it was Panorama Lounge, it has exterior patios with north and south views and we stayed for about 4 or 5 hours. Maybe that's not the case now if it is a full on...

    UNDEAD: Icona Condos | 174m | 55s | Gupta | IBI Group

    That's more like it. A continuous street presence with a mid-block break for internal access, even if it's poorly executed, is immensely preferable to having a windswept parking lot facing the street.
