    He bought the empty lot next door, but does he own the Strat's building itself? I don't remember hearing about that, though I think many expected it to happen.

    I won't consider it done until the piano is in place.

    Love the look and scale of it. Also, it seems to play off of this beauty directly across the street: (from Google Maps)

    One of my favourite trees - there are a few really gorgeous ones in the south end of Kew Gardens, just north of the lawn bowling courts. I just had a few dozen seeds shipped in from BC as an anniversary present and hope to grow a few in pots before planting them outside.

    I'm obsessed with the thought of this tree canopy being the norm on every single street that doesn't already have one

    Toronto | 100 Wellesley East | 38.7m | 11s | CAPREIT | Core Architects

    Very happy with the look of this - especially the retail element. Could be a game-changer in so many parts of the city.

    Ugh, green leaves for the tree? Again? Really?

I'm not a fan of his or the idea but it's interesting to read about nonetheless. "Backed by a friend, a former...

    Not sure if someone has already posted this here, but if you don't already follow Rocky's Twitter account you really should. It's funny, posts daily, and often has great pictures and progress reports.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Boo! What purpose do your facts serve here? JK I thought that the Oxford proposal was just east of here (above the convention centre) but didn't look it up because that would have exposed the major flaw in my scheme. That plan has now backfired.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Or, knock out the north end, including the entirety of the hotel, then keep going and take out 315 & 325 Front (I think Rogers owns both of these no?), deck over the railway, and with the stadium now open and facing north you have a big public plaza/park with a view into the Dome (which also...
