    Toronto | The Campbell | 47.24m | 14s | TAS | Teeple Architects

    This is a good kind of post - before-after comparisons reporting something much better!

    I'm still waiting for the bungee jump between the N/S towers to be announced..,.

    Right up there with "forever views" which are only achieved on the roof...

    Toronto | Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    As I said in a series of comments yesterday, the FORMA two-tower tall stack of boxes is in its way subtly intriguing and very "respectful" of the Toronto skyline which is mostly other boxes, the main exceptions being the CN Tower and City Hall, our most iconic curvaceous buildings. I for one...

    Toronto | Celeste Condominiums | 137m | 40s | Alterra | Sweeny &Co

    Sweeney is very good at street level on this one!!!!

    I think most architects would recognize a well designed building, whatever the (dis)agreement about this or that detail. . Balconies can be one or more stacks of attention-drawing protusions, or blend in with the overall design.

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    The view through to the red trees is sensational!!!

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

    Well London and New York assume they are the top cities in the world, and therefore are entitled to the best architecture and/or largest investments including excellent and/or astonishing exterior design. (Doesn't always work there either.) Toronto still tends to think were so lucky to get a big...

    Toronto | 191 Bay | 301.74m | 64s | QuadReal | Hariri Pontarini

    Agree re 10 years, unless they build the antenna from the 2d floor.

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

    Would someone provide the design of "the first one"?

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

    I've long tried to promote the idea that buildings whose relative size makes them stand out in the community/city skyline should have to meet much higher design standards via the Design Advisory Committee or whatever, since so many residents have to view them everyday and they make up a sense...

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

    Yes, Concord will need to do much better in design or preferably just accept the existing one and not mess with it.

    Toronto | Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    This is a huge investment, so not surprising adjustments sought right down to the end of approvals. Seems to indicate it is now a "viable" project. God knows what it will look like in the sky. I hope they manage to get it right - what looked to me like a change from something earlier that was...

    Toronto | 212 King Street West | 311.8m | 80s | Dream Office | SHoP

    I agree re dull design for such a huge (for Toronto) building (especially the smaller one), though the ground level looks interesting. I have long advocated we do not need a design review panel, except for the largest/tallest buildings which, since they stand out in the skyline, should only get...

    Toronto | Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    I'm going to keep trying to either get back to the previous Gehry Partners design or at least argue the latest jumble is awful. Let me offer some examples of huge building groups that are exciting to look at because their immensity also has some coherence. M1, M 2 and M3 in Mississauga are...
