    Toronto | 401 Bay Street (formerly Simpson Tower) | 143.86m | 33s | Cadillac Fairview | WZMH

    Funny how I never realized how few windows there were on the lower floors until they re-clad them in white:

    The Fountains Of Toronto

    From Marcus Gee in the G&M, August 12, 2016: Up by City Hall, the Trinity Square fountain at the west side of the Eaton Centre is out of order. Normally, water flows in a long watercourse down to Bay Street, forming a rushing urban stream. Now it's bone dry and barren. The stream was leaking...

    The Fountains Of Toronto

    However there are hundreds of millions of dollars collected by the city from developers for “parkland dedication”, sitting in the bank, yet a major broken fountain can’t be fixed.

    The Fountains Of Toronto

    I see that the Parks Department has solved the issue of the dead fountain in Trinity Square: paint the water in! Why is no one at the city embarrassed by this, across from City Hall and beside the city’s number one tourist attraction.

    Does anyone mind if I interrupt the conversation and post a construction pic of the project this thread is about?

    Evocative Images of Lost Toronto

    215 -219 Jarvis are some of the earliest buildings on Jarvis (1863), along with 207-213 Jarvis, and have been on the Inventory of Heritage Properties since 1977 (listed). They were renovated by Eberhard Zeidler in the 1970's and hopefully are still owned by the Zeidler family, which should...

    Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    First phase would extend rom Market Street to Sherbourne. Aim would be to ultimately extend to Parliament and establish a clear pedestrian connection from the St. Lawrence Market to the Distillery flanked by the farmers' kiosks (similar density to Portland where there is more park than booths).

    Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    Wouldn't it be nice to have a Farmer's Market similar to the one in downtown Portland (PSU) that extends over a number of blocks on the weekend and is in "off-hours" a linear park? Wouldn't the open space behind the SLM, combined with Crombie Park to the east be perfect? This would be a...
