I love that we have a South Park Road in the city. From today:

This is what I call a well executed facelift for 60s slab building. The dark accents contrast nicely with the light yellow brick, while the overall colour scheme remains warm. Same goes for the window and railings colour. The latter in particular are well done: frosted railings make a building look that much better than clear equivalents which make the building look incomplete. Photos from today at Forest Manor:

I took this photo (and a few like it) on April 10 2018. But for the life of me, I can't remember where this was. Anyone know? What's the building in the background?

Looks like facing west from Yonge at the Halo site?
Pretty sure that's 27 Grosvenor in the background

240 Duncan Mill is getting a lot of love. Both parking lots were being repaved, the lights are programmable, new pole mounted lights lining the property perimeter and a covered walkway under construction. From tonight:

What an odd investment for an inner-suburban office property whose chief selling feature has been lower-cost rent due to location.

Unless they have a lot of 24-hour lessees (call centres?) I imagine most tenants wouldn't get to see this display at most times of year.

I'm not complaining.............although.....its not exactly my taste............. LOL.....

I'm just fascinated by the decision to make that investment here.

People in the suburbs want nice things too? It certainly sets them apart from other suburban office buildings.
