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

    I particularly liked the moment when the final caller asked Mike Layton why we aren't upzoning the entire city and especially the low-rise residential areas near the site.

    Toronto | West Don Lands: Block 3, 4 & 7 | 50.32m | 13s | Dream | COBE Architects

    Interestingly, one of the docs that dropped was a Cost Estimate for streetscape enhancements, which I haven't seen included in the dev app portal before. Posting it below as it was an interesting look into the costs associated:

    Docs were updated on October 13, 2021. Unsure if there are any new renderings that we haven't seen before. I think the only new one is this winter rendering below. There are also more details on materials.

    Toronto | Westerly Condos | 87.9m | 27s | Tridel | Kirkor Architects

    It seems as though it is a condo tower now: From the Project Data Sheet: Unsure what is Hollyburn's involvement with the project then. Their site is still up at

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    That mind you, is one assumption. The developers decided they didn't find it worth turning those lots into something today. Not that they couldn't profit from hypothetically putting up a condo on the site today had they wanted to. The safer assumption I think, is that they are land banking it...

    Downtown Grocery Store List (current + proposed)

    Personally I am sad that McEwan's is closing at Yonge and Bloor. I enjoyed jumping downstairs to grab a pizza slice from their counter on my way between places. Probably wouldn't have found myself grocery shopping there if I was a local though.

    Is the second tower still a rental project? Seeing promotions for a "Westerly 2 Condos" launch online.

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    A western extension would provide coverage of Dundas West with a Shorncliffe station. There is significant residential growth projected for the area surrounding Sherway Gardens. A southern extension there would jump-start that.

    Toronto | 32 Richview | 35.25m | 10s | Grand Communities Corporation | Icon

    Based on the cover letter, it looks like this will be a condo. Site history:

    Toronto | 2345 Yonge | 130.2m | 36s | RioCan | DIALOG

    Dreadful. Can we petition Queen's Park to send Dialog back to Western Canada?

    Toronto | Whitehaus Condominiums | 107.28m | 31s | Lifetime | Diamond Schmitt

    Across the street at Montgomery Square, the StockTC restaurant fills in the third-storey restaurant indoor/outdoor patio space really nicely, and that is a very recent and adjacent precedent. They should try to replicate that here.

    This is Starlight Investments

    Toronto | 1681 Weston | 32.4m | 9s | EDEV Real Estate | Paradigm

    Bedroom sizes are noticeably larger in this proposal compared to the Toronto norm:

    GO studies Bolton rail service

    Yup, people need to stop focusing on whether ridership will be high at the termini of Lines and instead look at the coverage. This is a part of the city that is underserved with rapid transit, with quite a few connecting surface transit routes, pockets of density, and if well-planned with...

    Toronto | 586 Eglinton East | ?m | 32s

    The loss of medical offices would be a massive blow to the neighbourhood.
