    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 312.5m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    “Lifting of the H”. What the H does that mean? Thanks in advance.

    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 312.5m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Not to worry. In the whole cycle of things it doesn’t matter very much.

    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 312.5m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    The occasional sidecar, errr, I mean sidestep, into motorcycles is fine with me. And thanks for the Indiana Jones photo!

    Ana One? As is “Ana one, Ana two..”

    Toronto | 2150 Lake Shore | 224.8m | 70s | First Capital | Allies and Morrison

    I read the discussion about traffic at HBS at about 4PM today and thought I would check things out. I stood up from my laptop and looked out the window at the intersection of Lake Shore and Park Lawn. There were fifteen eastbound cars at the lights on Lake Shore and four on Park Lawn headed...

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

    Do you mean the southwest side of Eau du Soleil towards Mimico Creek? Or to describe it a bit differently, lakewards from the gas station? If so, I think that parcel is supposed to be green space. That could be wishful thinking on my part but it seems to me that this was indicated by a map...

    Tyndale Green (Markee Developments, ?s, KPMB)

    There is a lengthy history of partnership between colleges or universities and private developers to undertake developments on college or university lands. The first I know about was the building of the Colonnade on Victoria College land in the early 60’s. More recently, there was the...

    Toronto | U of T: University of Toronto Schools | 20m | 3s | Diamond Schmitt

    In the dim, distant past when Sabre tooth tigers roamed the earth and UTS had a compulsory cadet corps, there was a .22 rifle range under the auditorium stage. Who knows, maybe they are replacing it.... Nahhh. I’m curious what it is too.

    Toronto | Jade Waterfront | 138.37m | 41s | Phantom | Quadrangle

    I don’t know the answer about Jade but I can tell you that the presentation centre at Eau de Soleil has been demolished and the ground looks as if it is being prepared for its use as park area. An excavator is working on the site this morning. Perhaps the landscaping will go in shortly. It...

    WE Charity HQs (345 Queen East @ Parliament, TriAxis, 3s, Kohn Partnership)

    I want to phrase my disagreement with your post as courteously as possible. It happens that I served many years on the Board of a major charity that has reached out to the homeless and other folk in difficulty for many decades. You would likely recognize its name if you have lived long In...

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

    But it’s an easy walk to find good Pho from College and Spadina.

    Yes, “483 metres” would be pretty newsworthy, I think!

    Toronto | 2150 Lake Shore | 224.8m | 70s | First Capital | Allies and Morrison

    I am not persuaded that the streetcar right of way needs to be separated from the pedestrian areas. I had the delightful experience of living for a number of months in a village near Montpellier, France, a lovely city which boasts a well used 58 km tramway. The trams are about the size of the...

    Toronto | 2150 Lake Shore | 224.8m | 70s | First Capital | Allies and Morrison

    That’s certainly well worth considering, IMO, though the lots have been jam packed this past weekend. But that may be a consequence of the COVID-19 situation, rather than a long term reality. I think I might start, however, with repurposing one of the three lots on the west side of Mimico...

    Toronto | 2150 Lake Shore | 224.8m | 70s | First Capital | Allies and Morrison

    As a resident of the area, I had the opportunity to participate in the public consultation process. The proposal includes a number of developments that I ranked most highly in the process, notably, a GO Station, transit hub and schools. I was aware that the cost of these features would be...

    Toronto | 2150 Lake Shore | 224.8m | 70s | First Capital | Allies and Morrison

    In that aerial photo, the square area which abuts the rail lines is planned to be an overflow rainfall catchment area, as I understand things. I don’t know whether that can be combined with some public park use. Even if not, it would provide some wildlife refuge area, I think. The parcel...

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    In our building the rule is three maximum in an elevator. That is generally but not universally observed. Three in an elevator makes a two metre distance theoretically possible, but difficult. All passengers would have to wedge into the corners to do do so. More disturbing to me is that...

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    Railways are eyesores? Well, agreed that they are not obviously or classically pretty but given their importance in the development of Canada and of Toronto in particular, I don’t think I would call them an eyesore. Without the combination of harbour and railway what would Toronto be? Port...

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    As long as there are shared elevators a condo is anything but “pandemic proof” IMO. How often do we share with a possibly infectious stranger or strangers a smaller and less well ventilated space than the typical elevator?
