    116 Turnburry Ave (?, ?s, ?)

    Agreed. This will be a huge transit-oriented development. The cars in the satellite image are quite helpful for scale!

    Shabby Public Realm

    This could be a creative part of Toronto's Vision Zero policy!

    Toronto | Massey Tower Condos | 206.95m | 60s | MOD Developments | Hariri Pontarini

    Agreed. I'm not a fan of spandrel in the slightest, but as far as spandrel goes, it is quite minimal and looks fine.

    The Stock Market; Trading and Investments Thread

    As someone who is relatively new to the stock market, I'm looking at Wealth Simple or Questrade to get my feet wet and play with a small amount of money. Does anyone have any experience with either program? What do you like or dislike?

    Toronto | Tyndale Green | 61.5m | 20s | Markee Developments | KPMB

    I’d be stunned if that 20 story building doesn’t get whittled down to 14 stories tops.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    I don't mind the vinyl seating. The big test will be what they look like five years from now.

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

    It'd be great if one of those glass curtain condos were red or gold, just to mix things up.

    Gore Park Lofts (Hamilton, Scholar, 6s, Thier + Curran Architects)

    Agreed. Curious to see how it turns out.

    11 Robert St (Hamilton, Yoke, 6s, ?)

    Oof that render looks terrible. It's too cold and corporate for that stretch.

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    He's a regular at a lot of international summits and Bilderberg-lite meetings.

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    Trudeau will have no problem getting an agent for the global speaking circuit. He's still a darling of the centre-left commentariat in the US and Europe. I could also see him starting some sort of WE-like social innovation charity or something.

    Toronto | Concord Canada House | 231.97m | 74s | Concord Adex | IBI Group

    After the Nice truck attack, and the subsequent Yonge Street van attack, there have been jersey barriers or bollards placed around a lot of high traffic places like Union Station and Rogers Centre. It's unfortunate that they can't beautify them with art or flower beds.

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    Very disappointing verdict. I feel really sorry for the 2018 candidates who left their jobs, put in a lot of their own money or fundraised heavily for their campaign, only to back out because of Ford's pathetic grudge towards city council.

    Toronto | Concord Sky | 298.99m | 84s | Concord Adex | a—A

    Maybe Concord Adex took their CityPlace criticism to heart. Let's hope they turn the page and actually build something worthwhile of a modern cosmopolitan skyline.

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    I don't see a Trudeau resignation imminent. However, you have to think Mark Carney and Chrystia Freeland are measuring the drapes at 24 Sussex.

    Will Justin Trudeau's Liberals win every seat in Toronto again?

    So, does Vuong get pressured to immediately resign his seat, or do you think he sticks with it and sits as an Independent? I'm pretty sure if he resigns on Day 2, he gets $92,500, or half his annual salary, in lieu of a pension for not being in office for 6 years. Democracy!

    44th Canadian Federal Election

    Sure, Justin.

    Toronto | Block 8 West Don Lands | 89.61m | 26s | Dream | COBE Architects

    Really looking forward to this one!
