    Toronto | The Pemberton | 215.79m | 68s | Pemberton | a—A

    It's indeed a bit odd when you think of it that way, but I'll take it over a tacky and totally meaningless name like "Time & Space".

    UrbanToronto contributor Jasonzed - Jason Zytynsky - has passed away

    Just wanted to pass on my condolences to Jason's family. I always looked forward too seeing his great photos.

    Toronto | Rise Condos | 76.5m | 23s | Reserve Properties | Graziani + Corazza

    Russian School of Math is going in on the Bathurst side, and A&W is going in on the St. Clair side.

    Toronto | Wellesley on the Park | 194.15m | 60s | Lanterra | KPMB

    The juxtaposition of red brick and glass towers in these photos is giving me strong Distillery District vibes.

    Toronto | Theory Condos | 101.49m | 30s | Parallax | IBI Group

    I must be a philistine because I like the look of this one. No horizontal mullions, no spandrel glass on the tower, solid (i.e. non-glass) materials, dark colour, simple design gesture... solid B+ in my opinion.

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

    Last I heard they were close to securing an anchor, but that was about a year ago. Who knows what's happened since?

    Toronto | Gehry Towers | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    Yup, that's a different project, owned by Project Core. M+G is Great Gulf's baby now.

    Aura at College Park | 271.87m | 78s | Canderel | Graziani + Corazza COMPLETE

    Pretty sure it's a parody account.

    OMB Reform

    Whoa...

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

    I'm truly mystified by how this news could have elicited such a negative reaction from some here. I've never seen a development (other than ones with horrid designs) attract such relentless skepticism and hate.

    Toronto | Gehry Towers | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    It's an unusual project.

    Toronto | Minto Yorkville Park Condos | 75.89m | 25s | Minto Group | IBI Group

    I thought this might start to look better as it got taller, but I was wrong.

    Toronto | One Bloor East | 257.24m | 76s | Great Gulf | Hariri Pontarini

    This is not cheap retail space. Don't be surprised that it takes a long time to lease.

    Toronto | Gehry Towers | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    Just because you can't think of a reason, doesn't mean there isn't a very good reason. The realities of building, selling and financing something of this magnitude are complex and not typically publicized. It's disingenuous for you to push the narrative that Great Gulf has been sitting on their...

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    For what it's worth, I've heard from decent sources that they're close to locking down an anchor for the Hub.

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    It's not immediately evident but this will actually be the tallest office tower to go up in Toronto since Scotia Plaza in 1988.

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

    I've always wondered... what happens if one of these cables needs to be repaired in the future. Do they keep a record of where these lines are laid down? It always looks like such a mess.

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

    What on earth are you talking about? This was still at grade a year ago.

    Toronto | Union Centre | 298m | 54s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    Pretty banal design by BIG standards. I see why "utilitarian" was their key word here. I don't mind the bold & blocky look, but the proportions and slope of the crown need to be refined. I'd also have hoped and expected to see a different colour or material than blue glass from BIG, so that's a...
