    Completely agree. Didn't even notice the postmedia building until the 3rd most zoomed in photo

    Toronto | Cumberland Square | 254m | 75s | KingSett Capital | Giannone Petricone

    Wow mega disappointed. I think this entire site needs to be rethought. Unless unground renovations are implying a zone and flip, which may not be a bad thing based on this current design.

    Yup! I really like these. Nothing extra special but they look good.

    Cambridge Mill Hotel & Condominium (Pearle Hospitality, 37s, ?)

Huge win for Cambridge, and a much needed injection of life into the downtown core. I...

    Let's just stop. We're all entitled to our own opinions and no one is obligated to defend their opinions if other people don't like them. Let's get back to this building, Here's my succinct opinion: waste of the waterfront

    Toronto | East Harbour | 214.2m | 65s | Cadillac Fairview | Adamson

    I know MZO's are somewhat controversial around here, but the use of MZO's to ensure density around major public transit sites and stations is a very good thing imo

    Toronto | 2189 Lake Shore West | 195.97m | 59s | Marlin Spring | Wallman Architects

    Right but here's an idea for you. Why shift floorplates when you could just make a square box..? Right, see the genius all the sudden!?

    Toronto | Lakeside Residences | 158m | 49s | Greenland | Hariri Pontarini

    I appreciate the humility. You also have far more information than I had but as this post points out many major Chinese real estate and development giants are horribly struggling. The biggest issue is I've heard the Chinese government only plans on bailing out investors within China, which means...

    It's not that these are bad, they're just incredibly uninteresting and about as basic and bland as you can possibly get. That's a shame imo

    Toronto | HuntleySelby | 195.35m | 59s | Broccolini | IBI Group

    Love the height and density, but that house has to be heritage. It is gorgeous and Canada has limited Victorian era structures in good condition. We're not an old country and I always am in favour of preserving what good quality history we do have.

    I mean it's ok. For a box with wrapped balconies, I guess. It won't be out of place not that that's a compliment

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    I was getting at what penlasdle said in terms of LED versatility. You could create the same effect as present with the LEDs but also control brightness, colour etc. That said. I also agree this is a great project and it's more a nitpick than it is a complaint

    Toronto | Festival Condominiums | ?m | 59s | Menkes | IBI Group

    These are high quality towers going up in Vaughn city center one what was formerly parking lots, big box stores and strip malls. Not sure how this is building over gated SFH.

    I really cannot describe how disappointing the lighting on the diamonds is. I have no idea why they didnt just go with LED strips, theres literally nothing they can do with the current lights that they couldn't do with LED strips

    Toronto | The HUB | 257.85m | 57s | Oxford Properties | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    I have no idea. I'm fairly certain the rumours began before I discovered UT. When I initially joined it seemed as though google was a done deal here from what I saw people saying on the forum, but that tune has obviously changed.

    Toronto | The HUB | 257.85m | 57s | Oxford Properties | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    There have been rumours floating around on the forum for quite some time that the anchor tenant here is Google (I'm talking at least a couple years back) but there is no main tenant yet as has been pointed out so it really is all speculation at this point, even if some of it is informed speculation

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

    And it looks like the answer is no. No pour :( Being slow is one thing but they're seemingly constantly behind on their own dates too

    Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 312.5m | 95s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    I think this is the best building on the waterfront so far. Man does it ever look tall on it's own too!
