November has been another busy month for us here at UrbanToronto. The most visited story of the month was the cancellation of the Globe and Mail's new head office at Front and Spadina, prompting a lot of discussion in the Forum and on a story we ran on this surprising turn of events, along with the announcement of a major retail complex to be constructed on the existing Globe site. The Aura at College Park continues to captivate as well, as its climb to the sky is approaching 50 storeys and the retail space in its podium is open for business. Here is a rundown of the top ten Forum threads, News and dataBase pages for November 2012.

The announcement of the cancellation of the Globe and Mail Centre (pictured below) generated a lot of discussion this month. Other hot items in the Forum were the Aura at College Park and its rapid ascent toward 78 storeys, as well as Ice Condominiums at York Centre, which are starting to make a major impact on the skyline.

Top dataBase Pages
The Aura at College Park is over halfway to its peak of nearly 800 feet, and with its shops open in the retail levels it has continued to dominate in the dataBase. The L Tower is still a popular dataBase page as well, as it was recently topped off and we've had a lot of cool photos from its crane high above the city in its associated Forum discussion.
