    Toronto | 1086 Yonge | 47.33m | 12s | North Drive | Reflect Architecture

    In terms of design, I've seen better and I've seen worse. I do wish there was a more stepped profile facing onto Yonge St. to give this a bit more visual interest.

    And while they're at it, maybe they could also haul away those cheap looking drum planters and install some permanent hardscaped greenery.

    Toronto | Ontario Line: Osgoode Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    When I first saw the renderings for the placement of the north east station entrance on that corner, I really bemoaned the intrusion onto a space that has become something of an urban oasis around the majestic Osgoode Hall. I will grieve the loss of those beautiful old trees, but the only thing...

    Love Park | 3m | 1s | City of Toronto | Claude Cormier + Associés

    This is an icon in the making! I'm already in LOVE with Love Park!

    Toronto | Massey Hall Revitalization at the Allied Music Centre | 48.46m | 7s | KPMB

    The 'old girl' is looking real good! I just wish they could do something special with the pediment. The illumination highlights what seems to me a 'blank slate'...perhaps a modern art sculptural relief with a performing arts theme that echoes what was once there. The contrast between the old and...

    Toronto | Social at Church + Dundas | 164.89m | 52s | Pemberton | RAW Design

    Hmm...have something against leisure suits??

    I'd love to get a peak behind that hoarding to see how the restoration of the clock tower is going!

    Toronto | 49 - 51 Yonge | 216.36m | 60s | SmartCentres | a—A

    Mind you, if the city could purchase a corner lot in some less pricey part of the city(gulp) and make a deal with the developer to cover the 'moving' expenses(or even vice versa), then I could see it happening. Some lot in the new Portlands development that would benefit from a bit of 'heritage"...

    That's a definite option that was done for the Campbell House back in '72, but as architecturally interesting as these two gems are, I doubt whether the developer(or the city) would be willing to cover what would be a very costly project.

    Love the height and overall design of this one, but bemoan the loss of those heritage buildings('preserving' two facades is not true preservation in my book).

    Toronto | Concord Sky | 298.99m | 85s | Concord Adex | a—A

    All buildings deserve, at the very least, good architecture, but those proposed for the heart of the city should aspire to something beyond just 'good' or 'ok'. I try to avoid trashing a building based on early renders, but this thing doesn't even pretend to aspire to the level of 'good'...

    Toronto | 101 Spadina Avenue | 136.08m | 39s | Devron Developments | AUDAX

    Sweet! Potentially great addition to lower Spadina's Art Deco vibe!

    Toronto | Scott Mission Redevelopment | 36.05m | 9s | The Scott Mission | Kasian

    It's exciting to see such a unique and challenging site come up for renewal. With the jewel of the Daniels Building at its center, Spadina Crescent offers architects/builders a one of a kind opportunity to contribute great architecture to compliment what is really one of this city's iconic...

    Toronto | Concord Canada House | 231.97m | 74s | Concord Adex | IBI Group

    The pedestal on this thing looks massive.
