    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    This is it. The footprint of that north podium is absolutely massive, because they had to wrap the useful part around a parking garage.

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    Another parking ramp level being formed. Ugh. This site fills me with rage every time. I don’t mind losing my view to peoples’ homes, but it’s offensive to lose it to car storage.

    It means the loan arrangements follow a series of principles - and yes, related to environment, not just $$$. https://www.lma.eu.com/application/files/9115/4452/5458/741_LM_Green_Loan_Principles_Booklet_V8.pdf

    St Lawrence Market

    Obviously this whole thing is a giant clusterf*ck, but I'm trying to find a silver lining!

    St Lawrence Market

    If they pave that sidewalk as marked out, the Flatiron patio should be great this summer, though obviously it usually depends on office lunch and after work traffic, which won't be there this summer.

    St Lawrence Market

    I think the more likely explanation is that Toronto Hydro just doesn't care.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Knowing the city, they'll probably put a crosswalk across the DVP and let the pedestrians play frogger. There was a Star article a week or two ago where it said they planned to use an existing bridge to connect East Harbour to Corktown, so I can only imagine this was the bridge they were...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    I think that bridge is designated as a pedestrian connection from East Harbour to Corktown Common.

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    And I'm not going to moralize to anyone, because I'm part of the napster generation, and god knows I've pirated enough stuff over the course of my life, but the Toronto Star does need paying customers if it's going to continue to do local journalism long term.

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    True. Though everyone is in their own individual situation, but if you're interested in understanding Toronto and being up to date on local developments, city council news, etc., a Toronto Star subscription is money very well spent.

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    I tend to agree with Tenblock's view. We own a condo because at the time we bought it, it made the most financial sense. It would be great if we had a healthy rental market of modern apartments and houses with corporate landlords, as renting from a stable owner would be my preferred way of...

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

    Especially when the tugboats are motoring around, or the little police Zodiac comes in to take a look. The toddler loves Sugar Beach, even if he can't say "sugar" yet. He especially loves it when that big green scoop (is there a name for that thing?) is unloading sugar.

    Of course… It hasn’t been turned on since fall 2019!

    Toronto | Riverside Square | 69.19m | 20s | Streetcar | RAW Design

    It’s true, but they often put up barriers that are not compatible with toddlers watching. This one was wide open along Danforth, so the viewing was good.

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    I guess they're preparing to pour some floor on the corner closest to my apartment, so there's lots of activity. The toddler looked out the window and declared "so many construction people today". The concrete pump is there too. It may be the best day of his life so far.

    The toddler is quite torn up about this. We used to stop by and watch the two excavators working on our way to daycare.

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    It's not really a "write off". There will be thousands of people living there, contributing to the neighbourhood. It might not look great, but it's way better than what was there before. It's not like the rest of the buildings on the Esplanade around there look good or contribute to a vibrant...

    Hopefully they have learned a lesson from Market St and won't try to include parking...
