    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Agree that we'll have multiple large rail stations in the not too distant future instead of just Union. Besides those listed above, one should add East Harbour to that list. It will probably be the first one realized.

    University Avenue (History and Future Redesign)

    It will almost certainly put to shame whatever design they propose for University Avenue, Spadina, Yonge, etc. And the rebuttal will surely be 'But one can't expect the same as Paris!' Do we deserve less than Parisians? Of course not, but that's certainly how a lot of Canadians think. We...

    Toronto | Concord Sky | 298.99m | 84s | Concord Adex | a—A

    The kicker is that it's a complete role reversal. Historically, it was Brits envious of Canadian skyscrapers. Canada had lots of them and show stoppers like TD Centre. All Brts had was National Westminster Tower, now called Tower 42.

    Toronto | 328 Bloor West | 114.92m | 37s | First Capital | BDP Quadrangle

    Is that an eco-skeleton or is it cosmetic?

    Toronto | BMO Field Renovations | ?m | ?s | MLSE | Gensler

    The NFL isn't a fan of expanding to Canada either. They already make all the money they need from Canada by way of merchandise sales in Canada and Canadian television contracts. A team in Toronto doesn't expand the pie at all., it just diverts dollars to 1 team from the other 36. The...

    Toronto | BMO Field Renovations | ?m | ?s | MLSE | Gensler

    Now that Skydome is baseball only, Toronto would need to build temporary stands if it wanted to host the national football championship. 2016 was the last time we hosted. If this were a permanent expansion it would make hosting more viable as 45,000 is an ideal size. There's a roof over the...

    Toronto | 252 Church | 166.1m | 52s | CentreCourt | IBI Group

    I don't argue for more height often but agree with the some of the sentiments here. Despite the much discussed design failures of Dundas Square it's undeniably one of the most photographed places in the country. It continues to evolve/improve and has arguably become the psychological heart of...

    Toronto | Waterworks Building Redevelopment | 47.55m | 13s | MOD Developments | Diamond Schmitt

    Another dog's breakfast of a park. WAY too much going on. Edit out half of the features and it might still be too busy.

    Toronto | 11 YV | 212.44m | 62s | Metropia | Sweeny &Co

    That road isn't holding up well.

    Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 1) | 231m | 70s | Menkes | a—A

    If one's to find a silver lining it's that flat grey is a lot better than 'toothpaste green', a colour choice that''s found its way into countless Toronto high-rises.

    Toronto | Rush Condos | 44.96m | 15s | Alterra | BDP Quadrangle

    The utility poles 3-4 photos up are a disaster. Hopefully, once blocks in the core get built out they'll turn their attention to buried electrical and better looking street lamps/traffic lights.

    1086 Yonge St (North Drive, ?s, ?)

    And with ho hum retail chains (Pizza Hut, Starbucks) to boot. You'd think they'd at least put a nice coffee shop in there.

    2 St. Clair West Podium Rebuild (Slate, 2s, Gensler)

    I walked up there a few days ago and that east side on Yonge looks great. It was a pleasant surprise.

    Scotia Plaza (KingSett) updates

    Wow, what a self absorbed child! Hope that idiot was found and arrested. If people want to put their own lives at risk go blow your own brains out but this is private property and there are people at street level. We should be able to walk around without some moron (or object) landing on us.

    Toronto | PJ Condos | 156.96m | 48s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Agree although cramming in way too many features seems to be how a lot of our parks, parkettes, and public spaces have been designed the last few years. Few of them are relaxing places to be. Many resemble 'jungle gyms for adults'... and a jumbled mess. I'm surprised they didn't shoe horn in...
