    Toronto | Aquabella at Bayside | 50.9m | 14s | Tridel | 3XN

    The cottony maple scale has started to appear on the smaller, new trees out front of Aquabella - it's only one or two of these things on each tree, but it's started. Given it can apparently stunt tree growth based on the below, I hope Waterfront Toronto finally acts on this soon.

    Toronto | Atrium on Bay Expansion | 114m | 34s | KingSett Capital | Hariri Pontarini

    Renderings barely show it, but it looks like there's a hefty cantilever on the south side. I quite like this.

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

    The balcony pattern is already different from the brand new rendering.

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 20 | 162.61m | 46s | Dream | Henning Larsen

    That is jaw-droppingly incredible.

    Toronto | Lakeside Residences | 158m | 49s | Greenland | Hariri Pontarini

    My greatest fear is Concord buying this or any site along the waterfront.

    Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 2) | 299m | 90s | Menkes | a—A

    I fail to understand why Menkes can't provide something with interesting balcony treatment (e.x. One Bloor East) at this location that will undoubtedly command a premium price from purchasers. The weird thing is that the front tower actually has uniquely shaped floorplates and seemingly curved...

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    Can someone spill the tea!? I have no idea what the importance of that plant is or its seeds

    Toronto | Lakeside Residences | 158m | 49s | Greenland | Hariri Pontarini

    Pretty incredible that this thing has barely broken ground. I remember it being in pre-con sales back in early 2018 (and it might've launched even earlier than that). Within that time, One Yonge Phase 1 and Sugar Wharf Phase 1 have launched and are almost topped out.

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    My understanding is that Promontory Park North isn't funded, but that's intentional - the plan is to build it using section 37 funds from the developments that are built on Villiers Island. But they already created the design for it along with the rest of the funded part of the Lower Don plans...

    Toronto | Market Wharf | 110.33m | 33s | Context Development | a—A

    Agree street level needs a lot of work. For the longest time I walked by here and had no idea it was part of Market Wharf because it looked so shabby and uninspired. Filling it with tenants would be nice, but it needs more than that.

    Toronto | KING Toronto | 57.6m | 16s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    I suspect the vines will be maintained by the condo corp. However after seeing the quality of the mock-ups, I couldn't care less about the vines - this will look awesome regardless of how much or little greenery there is.

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

    Balcony cladding is going up now. Almost the entire first tower floor of the eastern building has it. Looks the same as the test panels - black, grey, and white. The black in particular looks sharp. Though I'm still nervous that this could look like a mess given the hectic-ness of the pattern...

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    It's not good, but the cladding saves it from being a disaster at least. My worry is that, based on the renders, as the building rises the cladding disappears, in which case it'll just be a mess of window wall and spandrel.

    Additional rendering in the Globe I haven't seen elsewhere yet.
