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

    The shadowing is a fair comment, but the default anti-height sentiment is not. I wonder if any of the NIMBYs were actually from Pinnacle One 😀

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

    This issue that a project is 'too tall' always reminds me of a similar argument made for 10 York, where the original massing consisted of a point tower that was a bit taller but much more appropriate for that site (slightly offset from ICE Condos, preserving as much of the view for the 3 towers...

    Below is a link to the last remaining penthouse for sale for about $31M, showing the residents' rooftop terraces, which I had not seen before. https://www.homesandland.com/For-Sale/Toronto,ON/1_Bloor_St_W___number__8202/70130854.html

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

    aA’s architecture is better than KPF in my opinion when it comes to proportions, refinement, elegance, not to mention well ahead of the second and third tier ‘award winning’ local firms that do a lot of work in Toronto. aA was recently featured in the architecture book Canadian Architecture...

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

    The view west to The Well along Front Street (taken from one of the images above) is an example of a lost opportunity to contribute to a terminating vista ....perhaps having the small cantilevered glazed box here rather than further north on the facade (though a bolder feature would be even...

    Toronto | 191 Bay | 301.74m | 64s | QuadReal | Hariri Pontarini

    Whenever I search Skyscraper Page, I use Roof as the number 1 criteria for height, since I find it provides the best overall arrangement of the buildings' perceived / relative height ( a shorter building with a long spire will be placed further away from the taller buildings).

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

    Formwork has started for the next level at the NW column…..inching closer to the horizontal framing atop this concrete, which would then allow for the installation of the tension diagonals.

    Toronto | 191 Bay | 301.74m | 64s | QuadReal | Hariri Pontarini

    Are the heights of 191 Bay, 55 Yonge, Indx condos and other buildings at the financial core established by an arbitrary diagonal plane? This plane is very clear from the west, especially with IndxCondos.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Agree, it’s an exiting structure to be in and always will be. It needs a cosmetic overhaul by a top tier architecture studio. As with most things in life it does not check off all the boxes for baseball but what it does have makes it unique.The Rogers Center was a world class stadium when it...

    Images from the side of the glass, to see its thickness. Also, there is steel framing against the south wall, though it may have already been posted - I had not noticed it before.

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

    According to the renderings they willl be removing the traffic signals and no-turning signs, which will make that corner look a lot less encumbered 😀😉

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    My main point is that unless it gets replaced by something as inspiring as the Rogers Centre was when it opened, it would be a loss to Toronto to demolish this multi-purpose facility. Also, it was not a cookie-cutter domed stadium but rather the first large-scale stadium in the world with a...

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Sorry not a fan of this. I don’t think replacing the Rogers Center should even be a discussion, certainly not based on any of the examples provided here so far. A renovation designed by a high caliber firm is what it deserves. Introduce glazing at the roof, revise all the exterior glazing...
