Another month of Toronto city-building, transportation, and real estate talk is now behind us, so we are looking back at what were the hottest stories, project Database files, and Forum discussions from June, 2022. 

Our Top Ten News Stories

This month, our Top Ten begins with #15, at The One. Despite being published on the second last day of the month, this story was a big hit for UrbanToronto readers. The unique tower floor construction of the development had us all a little puzzled, but we talked with Mizrahi to better understand what exactly is going on at the site.

The rest of our Top Ten stories this month are all based on new proposals that have been received by the City. Many unique and exciting ones caught the eyes of UrbanToronto readers, including new buildings being proposed on top of old ones, and others being proposed across from or attached to TTC stations.

Our Top Ten Database Files

at #19, ironically, is 19 Duncan, which has made our Top Ten list in months past. As this tower continues to rise in the entertainment district, its database file has garnered some looks.
