    How about the fact that every second condo that's approved in this city is 49 storeys.

    Women's fashions in 1912 v 1927: what a radical change in a relatively short time.

    What a defacement. And for what?

    Toronto | 350 Bloor East | 208.91m | 63s | Osmington Gerofsky | Hariri Pontarini

    Branksome Hall is on the other side of the ravine, They're going to be screaming blue murder about the height.

    Hudson's Bay Centre Renovations | 39.24m | 7s | Brookfield | Adamson

    My God, why even bother? Why go to the trouble of tearing down the old HBC, only to replace it with something of the same height? And what about the dead-zone NE corner of Bloor-Yonge?

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Gentlemen, we have liftoff.

    2022 Municipal Election: Council Races

    Word is Kristin Wong Tam is about to make the jump to provincial politics. Going to run in Toronto Centre for (what else?) the NDP.

    So long Alexander Wood, it was nice knowing you.

    Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Province of Ontario | Zeidler

    How parochial. They did hire a Canadian firm -- it's not like they went to the U.S. and Europe. Funny, I don't see this kind of criticism on the many threads praising Claude Cormier.
