Our series of Growth To Watch For articles from January through March of this year proved quite popular, so we want to make them easily accessible to you throughout the year, anytime that you might want an overview of an area, or a quick way of finding adjacent developments to something else that you're following.

This thread, therefore, has been "stickied" at the top of our Buildings section for high visibility: while the Growth stories gradually drop further and further from our front page, you'll still be able to access them quickly here.

First, a map, showing the 21 areas we broke Toronto down into, and the paths we took through them.

After starting immediately west of the core, the first batch cover the western portion of the city:
1. Entertainment District
2. King West, Queen West, and More
3. South Etobicoke
4. Etobicoke Centre and Bloor West
5. Dupont, the Junction, and St. Clair West
6. North Etobicoke & Weston
7. York to Yorkdale to York Mills

The second third of the articles basically cover north and the east of the centre:
8. Downsview & York University
9. North York Centre and Willowdale
10. North Scarborough
11. Central Scarborough
12. Beaches, Leslieville, & The Danforth
13. East York and Don Mills
14. Midtown—Eglinton to St. Clair

And now we dive right back into the core:
15. Bloor-Yorkville and Rosedale
16. Corktown-Regent Park-Cabbagetown
17. Jarvis and Church Corridors
18. Downtown Toronto North
19. U of T, West of Downtown
20. Downtown Toronto Core
21. Toronto's Central Waterfront

With the finale in the Downtown core and the denouement on the central waterfront, we leave off walking into the sunset in the Port Lands, and Toronto's future…

Poetic, no?

Anyway, we are happy to get feedback in this thread about anything related to the articles!

I should have added a link above to our 2017 wrap-up article as well, which counts a number of things, like how many office buildings are proposed, how many supertalls, how many mid-rises, etc.

We should probably count up the number of tower-in-the-park sites with infill proposals on them next…

Props to UT staff for these "growth to watch" updates. No idea why there are so few comments.

So thanks, much enjoyed and appreciated (and informative).

Cheers.
To exactly this point, it’s pretty frustrating that this year’s edition will only be available to those who pay.

Even if you had to pay for the complete set, or to view old posts in the series, it would be nice if there could be a compromise. Perhaps feature some hot spots (entertainment district, Y & E, East Bayfront) for free as a teaser for the more complete set.

Great idea. As always, I’m happy to pay for good content, but I don’t much care to have the latest info on, say, a Days Inn going up at, like, Finch and the 400, but I’d potentially pay for smaller sections that are of greater interest.

It just seems odd to bucket it all in one and restrict access to basically all UTers who aren’t developers.
