    Toronto | Novus at Garrison Point | 119.17m | 34s | BentallGreenOak | Hariri Pontarini

    The grocery store is still moving forward. The building was designed for it on the second floor and an agreement was made with the retailer during the design development process. The third floor is where this gym and wellness centre will be located.

    Toronto | TeaGarden Condos | 42.97m | 12s | Phantom | Kirkor Architects

    I have a relative who bought a penthouse unit at the project launch. Over the years they were offered to back out of their purchase with a small compensation, but they love the location, unit and building which was supposed to be their future home. Oddly enough, the developer also offered a $10k...

    Post a good floorplan!

    those plans may look ridiculous, but the rooms are nicely sized so you can fit real sized furniture AND a dining table. Toronto developers would fit two bedrooms and two baths in a unit of that size with rooms that can only fit the bare essentials when it comes to furniture -- some bedrooms...

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

    there was supposed to be a ramp that starts immediately to the right of the entrance behind the column with a landing on the corner and another ramp to replace the right-most steps to the sidewalk, but that was nixed. Now the accessible entrance is in the back of the building, which also serves...

    Toronto | Cabin | 21.03m | 6s | Curated Properties | RAW Design

    The corrugated aluminum cladding on the backside looks so much nicer (though some of the panels don’t quite line up), why can’t they use it on the front? It’s a shame as the interior is really nice.

    Toronto | 689 King Street West | 60.91m | 18s | Manga | Sweeny &Co

    The site is pretty challenging as the Summit wraps around the back of the property. When there was a 4-storey retail/restaurant proposal a while back the developer had issues with where to properly locate their loading and vehicular access as talks with The Summit failed regarding granting...

    Toronto | 1200 Bay | 326.5m | 87s | ProWinko | Herzog & de Meuron

    Yeah, still too early in the game to speculate how the design will evolve. Though the renderings are placeholders, so far it’s a clean handsome tower with no distracting balconies or cliché details. The retractable wooden shutters between the double facade are a nice touch and should provide...

    Clover Hill Park (5 St. Joseph, 0s, NAK Deisgn)

    more like kitschy or campy. The execution looks really cheap. I’d like to know the meaning of these art pieces. Whatever happened to tasteful or sophisticated public art?

    Toronto | 55 Mercer | 155.44m | 47s | CentreCourt | IBI Group

    from the photos of the sales above it looks like the old Nobu sales centre was already in use. The interior looks to be the same.

    Toronto | Garrison Point | 118.56m | 35s | Cityzen | Hariri Pontarini

    No, all those buildings were each designed by different architects. The L-Tower was designed by Daniel Leibskind, Aura by G+C, and the Marilyn Monroe towers by MAD. Cityzen developed all of these except for Aura which was developed by Canderel.

    Toronto | Design Haus | 52.12m | 19s | Shiu Pong | Kirkor Architects

    Why did they put the same awful grey windows, and (gasp!) spandrel on the heritage portion?!!! Looks like they carelessly replicated the 1980’s replacement aluminum storm windows that was last there. The bottom row of divided window lights reminds me of the 80’s era sliding windows (in this case...

    Toronto | The Saint | 151m | 47s | Minto Group | Wallman Architects

    There are guidelines and standards that define a legal bedroom, such as minimum floor area (with or without a closet), minimum room dimensions and access to natural light, but some developers like to bend the rules and call a room a bedroom when it really should be a den or a studio unit...

    Toronto | KING Toronto | 57.6m | 16s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    The ribbed glass blocks do look much nicer than the frosted ones used in the sales centre. It provides better quality light and is more visually interesting to see through. As for the hoarding, I’m sure Westbank will eventually clad the hoarding with something nice, similar to what they did on...

    Toronto | W Hotel Toronto | ?m | 9s | Larco | architectsAlliance

    it would be cool if there‘s some very subtle animation or motion to the backlit panels on the facade. Like having the rectangles fade slowly at different rates. also, having the elevator cab done in a bold colour so a coloured glow would travel up and down within that frosted or fritter glass...

    Residences of 488 University Avenue, The (Amexon Development Corp) - Real Estate -

    At the sales centre and in the brochures the finishes looked outstanding and and one of the nicest out of all of the condo developments at the time. I was considering a unit here because of that. I remember seeing bathrooms and kitchens covered in slabs of quartz or granite, showers with...

    Also a spandrel panel as well.

    Toronto | King Blue by Greenland | 155.75m | 48s | Greenland | IBI Group

    I noticed that too walking by one night. The windows maybe frosted later or it would be cool to make it into some kind of art installation piece with coloured lights. At least it’s a very clean and tidy looking mechanical room compared to other condos. A blank wall or a louvred panel would be an...
