September 2013 saw movement all throughout the city, from the downtown core all the way up to Pearson Airport. With all this new development, it can be hard to keep track of every project. We've made it simple for you guys - the 10 most popular News articles, Forum listings, and DataBase entries of last month! 


Our news page has hit some high numbers this month, especially with stories involving development at the corner of Yonge and Queen. 2 Queen West Tower takes the top spot this month, creating a discussion of whether a tower at such a tall height is appropriate for an already hustling area of Toronto. Other notable stories includes the new Globe and Mail Headquarters, and the Metrolinx Union-Pearson Rail Station finishing completion. Check out the Top 10 News stories of September below.

The forums had some heavy traffic this month as well. As usual, the Ice Condos at York Centre thread takes the top spot, becoming a popular development of Urban Toronto members. The newly opened Toronto Premium Outlets in Halton Hills takes the #2 spot, as many shoppers were curious about the newly opened outlet stores. Taking the third spot is the Aquarium of Canada & CN Tower Retail Pavilion, which finalized construction last month.
