    Toronto | Backyard Neighbourhood Condos | 24.99m | 10s | VANDYK | Kohn

    You're not gonna find much sympathy on these forums for a 10 story building. Your "thoughts" seems pretty simple - it blocks your view and they demolished some old shops you liked. At least that's what i can tell from your comment.

    Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85.04m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners The Current hosted Alex Bozikovic to discuss heritage buildings. They begin with the Honest Eds redevelopement. Apologies if already posted in another thread.

    Toronto | Rogers Centre Renovations | ?m | ?s | Toronto Blue Jays | Populous

    The portlands location would be amazing. Imagine that view looking downtown. I don't see Rogers building it though. Best case Edward Rogers buys the team and builds his personal legacy with a new stadium. He definitely has the money to do it - and the ego too 😂

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

    Personally I much prefer this orange. Terracotta is already overused and I suspect will fall out of fashion soon. At least this has something to say other than "im trying to be trendy". It may still be ugly in 20 years but at least it will be uniquely ugly and have charm.

    519 Sport and Recreation Project/Moss Park Arena Revitalization (MJMA/West 8/Public Studio/LGA/SvN)

    Selfishly, I will miss playing softball here every week with TSSC. I do wish they replace the field - It's one of the only downtown fields left. The crowd was always entertaining and respectful. There was a regular who would sit behind home plate and heckle the players while doing commentary. I...

    Toronto | Parliament Slip | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto | West 8

    Very cool proposal - this area desperately needs an attraction. Are there any winter uses? Skating rink, outdoor curling? It would be very cold with the wind coming off the late.

    Toronto | Sidewalk Toronto at Quayside | ?m | ?s | Sidewalk | Snøhetta

    What is the future of Cirque du Soleil here?? Could be a good destination site for them.

    Toronto | King Blue by Greenland | 155.75m | 48s | Greenland | IBI Group

    I mean this just isn't true I work with factories from China every day - they are all privately owned. Perhaps every massive company is owned by the state ie Huawei is 99.99 owned by the state. I suspect Greenland is largely state owned. The question is whether or not the infrastructure is...

    Toronto | 540 Cedarvale | 10.33m | 3s | City of Toronto | Montgomery Sisam

    For the life of me I cant understand why people are going after @Northern Light here when he is the only one actually providing information and evidence. I can understand the emotional reaction to this - and everyone ought to express their opinion on it. But "I am losing money" is not an...

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

    What does the city have to do with this? Do you seriously think that if the city approved the initial design it would actually get built? We would still likely get the value engineered version - just 3 towers of it.

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I say tax the hell out of Mizrahi, and the buyers - if the ultra rich international elite want a chunk of Toronto's skyline make them pay. I would even propose a progressive luxury tax on units over a certain value - which is what they do in Hong Kong on all sorts of luxury goods. If we arent...

    Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Province of Ontario | Zeidler

    A refreshing quote from the article In the end, Zeidler says her father cared less about preserving the design of his creations and more about the people that enjoyed them. "That's all he talked about [...] through my life was how people engage with places emotionally; I think he really...

    Toronto | Portland Commons | 71.7m | 15s | Carttera | Sweeny &Co

    For posterity sake - Peter Nygard is accused of sex trafficking and rape
