    Toronto | Sun Life Financial Tower & Harbour Plaza Residences | 236.51m | 67s | Menkes | Sweeny &Co

    He clearly meant 1 York, aka this project. And yes, I think we can be confident a Target is going in.

    Toronto | 90 Niagara | ?m | 5s | Fieldgate | Giannone Petricone

    As opposed to urban condos for non-urban living? ;)
  3. SP!RE

    Toronto | Pan Am Village in the West Don Lands | ?m | ?s | DundeeKilmer | KPMB

    The George Brown residence would do well to have some sun-shading (vertical brises-soleil) on the west elevation. Otherwise, looks great!

    Toronto | L-Tower | 204.82m | 58s | Cityzen | Daniel Libeskind

    That is an absolutely gorgeous shot of both L Tower, and the city at large. We're so fortunate to have some very talented photographers on this site.

    Toronto | Waterlink at Pier 27 | 43.89m | 14s | Cityzen | a—A

    Which will detract from the truss effect intended for the bridges when the motif is clad over the glazing.

    Nicholas Residences | ?m | 35s | Urban Capital | Core Architects

    I enjoy the balcony motif. The tower is neo-modernist but the balconies are a bit playful.

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

    mafaldaboy, without a doubt those are the best shots of Aura I've ever seen, and some of the best contemporary shots of Yonge Street I've ever seen. Great work!!!

    Nicholas Residences | ?m | 35s | Urban Capital | Core Architects

    I'd mostly blame the developer, not their bitch.

    The Berczy | 41.76m | 13s | Concert | IBI Group COMPLETE

    Pharmacies carry just about everything, hence why they can all stay in business.
  10. SP!RE

    Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    Wow! NOW we're talking. Looking forward to this going forward, and seeing how the plans develop. I love how pedestrian and cyclist focused the plans are... very progressive and different than we're used to. Good for RioCan/Allied/Diamond for doing this.
  11. SP!RE

    Toronto | Theatre Park | 156.96m | 47s | Lamb Development | a—A

    Looks great. Really looking forward to seeing how the podium and the setback area at the front of the site are handled.
  12. SP!RE

    The Yards at Fort York | ?m | 28s | Onni Group | Wallman Architects COMPLETE

    The columns really detract from the brick motif on the podium.

    Bloor-Yorkville Scene

    Anyone know an exact day for the J.Crew opening on Bloor St.? EDIT: Their website says it's opening Feb. 5

    Toronto | Ryerson Student Learning Centre | 51m | 8s | Ryerson University | Zeidler

    There only ever was one pattern, I was mistaken. The mock-up looks like it has two different patterns because the two different frit patterns are in fact just different parts of the same motif. You can see a bit of both in the glazing in the images above.

    Toronto | Ryerson Student Learning Centre | 51m | 8s | Ryerson University | Zeidler

    I love how people keep referring to Ryerson as if they, as a university, are the architects for this project. They are the client/developer of the project, yes, but the frit pattern and materiality, etc., is the work of Snohetta. The project is in good hands. They've had to make choices about...

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

    I enjoyed the blog entry. You're a good writer and you summed up the experience better than I could. The low lighting is probably the strangest thing about it, looking back on my visits to the lower-level retail at Aura, and it wasn't until I read your blog entry that I realized how strange that...

    Toronto | Ryerson Student Learning Centre | 51m | 8s | Ryerson University | Zeidler

    This is definitely my favourite project in the city right now. Just snapped this shot this morning, more of the glazing going up:

    Toronto | Telus House - 25 York Street | 136.24m | 30s | Menkes | Sweeny &Co

    Stop bumping old threads... pleeeease.
