    Toronto | 133 Erskine | 107.05m | 31s | 133 Erskine LP | IBI Group

    This application has only 26 rental replacement units when there are 162 existing units at 141 Erskine. Note that the application includes 133 Erskine, a much smaller building to the west on the corner of Redpath. My guess is that they will tear down 133 Erskine, replace it with 31 storeys and...

    Toronto | Orca | ?m | 7s | Demirov Fine Homes | RAW Design

    The part facing Kingston is not bad- why did they have to mess up the corner?

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 10 Indigenous Hub | 50.3m | 13s | Dream | Stantec

    How did other sites in the West Don Lands maintain the City trees during construction, but this site cannot?

    Toronto | 1406 Yonge | 139.99m | 40s | Metropia | IBI Group

    A huge slab with zero south setback only 4m north setback, 1.5m from Yonge Street. Not good.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I recall RER initially was to include all day service to the Hamilton GO Centre. Is this an indication that is no longer going to happen? West Harbour's location is slightly less convenient with respect to downtown, LRT connection, etc. Has WH been chosen over HGC because of issues with CPR?

    Toronto | Eight Cumberland | 170m | 51s | Great Gulf | a—A

    The tower at 1 Yorkville is 12.5m from the south lot line, but the tower at 8 Cumberland is only 7.5m from the north lot line. So the separation between the two is only 20m.

    Toronto | Gorman Park Condos | 30.3m | 9s | Pinemount Developments | Icon

    The City reached a settlement on this rezoning but then the owner flipped the site. That's likely why it's only an SPA. Pleased to see this moving forward.

    Toronto | The Allen District | ?m | ?s | CreateTO | Perkins + Will

    Will the additional recommendation push CreateTO for more affordable housing? Right now the plan is something like 300 out of 3,500 units would be affordable. Less than 9% seems pretty low for City-owned land.

    Toronto | 859 The Queensway | 42.84m | 11s | First Avenue | Teeple Architects

    It's not the City's fault that the Developer took a huge risk by starting construction without zoning approvals.

    Toronto | Oriole GO Station Relocation | 8.81m | 1s | Metrolinx | Architecture 49

    Which street is that new station building located on?

    Toronto | Scott Mission Redevelopment | 36.05m | 9s | The Scott Mission | Kasian

    This site certainly has its challenges; Knox College view corridor, The Waverley's small north setback, the odd shape of the lot and the adjacency to a school yard

    Toronto | Dufferin Grove Village | 125.03m | 36s | Primaris | BDP Quadrangle

    Revised plans were submitted on March 24. The 14 storey tower is gone, the park is bigger, the number of units has increased but the FSI is roughly the same.

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

    Is that going to be a new street where they are installing the silva cells?

    Toronto | 145 St George | 98.15m | 29s | Tenblock | a—A

    That's what I was thinking. It's no small building, it must have 150 rental units that would need to be replaced.

    Toronto | 145 St George | 98.15m | 29s | Tenblock | a—A

    Hopefully it's just an infill. It would be quite a waste to tear down that whole building.
