    87 Richmond St E (Toronto Parking Authority)

    This parking lot is listed in a recent Toronto Parking Authority Real Estate Strategy report as a “potential new opportunity” in their development portfolio. https://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2019/pa/bgrd/backgroundfile-141150.pdf Sounds like potential to build social housing on this site...

    188 Lowther Ave (Walmer Road Baptist Church, TAS DesignBuild, ?)

    Church was looking to sell or partner (I think) with a developer but there are complicated steps to the sale of the site due to Baptist Church rules governing that their land use must be used for religious purposes. Anyway, it might be a while before anything happens here but discussions have begun.

    485 Huron (12s, Uno Prii)

    Another Uno Prii building getting cleaned up with new windows, fixed balcony floors and new rails, and a paint job. Looks really nice from afar and up close.

    11 Walmer Rd (recladding, 7s, Uno Prii)

    This has been undergoing renos all summer. EIFS were torn off to reveal white and black brick. Have yet to see what is going back in place (really hoping for white and black brick again). Some background here and photo...

    Toronto Coach Terminal 610 Bay St (City of Toronto, ?s, ?)

    This is about 4 years away, but TTC is recommending selling this site once Greyhound Coach moves to 45 Bay Street. http://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2017/April_20/Reports/8_TCTI_Lease_Disposition.pdf The Toronto Coach Terminal building is a...

    Toronto | 666 Spadina Avenue | 41m | 11s | Cromwell | IBI Group

    This tower in the park will lose its park. Townhomes to be added on Sussex, midrise building (with retail) on Spadina. As far as I know it will be all rental. The architecture is not groundbreaking, but is not terrible in my opinion...

    Toronto | 1200 Bay | 326.5m | 87s | ProWinko | Herzog & de Meuron

    This building holds David's Shoes and Capezio. It's a real mid-century beauty and I would truly hate to see it go. According to the most recent Toronto Life magazine, Sam Mizrahi is looking at buying this property/building.

    CAMH Facility (250 College St, Brookfield, ?, ?)

    It looks like this site may change down the line. I wonder what the zoning is here. It's commercial use now and I really doubt the city would change that. I also would expect UofT might be quite interested in the land too. Tower in the park design aside, I'd rather not see this move. The...

    Inclusionary zoning and affordable housing

    I couldn't find a thread on this, so I'll start one. NYC is using 80/20 building projects (that is, 20% of a building contains affordable, market rate and basically rent geared to income housing) to increase their supply of affordable housing. The city often offers more density or tax...

    Museum of Toronto (?)

    I noticed a CEO search for Museum Toronto on the workinculture.ca site. In the job description it mentions: "We aspire to rethink the Canadian big- city history museum traditions, and to develop architecturally thoughtful, purpose- built space that will support serious, reflective civic...

    resetTO: massive changes coming to urban planning in Toronto?

    Anyone else seen this about resetTO? From the resetTO page: "To "reset" means to begin again with the same basic principles or context while following a different process. The current planning process functions on a site-by-site basis, which often forces the needs and vision of local...

    17 Prince Arthur Ave (?, 4s, Diamond Schmitt)

    A nice little infill project that defers to the heritage building out front. It looks way better than what was done next door with the bad yellow stucco with poor detailing choices that were slapped on. They are currently digging below the house now. Info here...
