    Toronto | Gerrard-Carlaw North | ?m | ?s | Choice Properties

    Well there's already an existing plaza with a grocery store in the area. I think the new road is more for the residential towers and an alternate access(?) to the station. Still don't like it though.

    Toronto | Gerrard-Carlaw North | ?m | ?s | Choice Properties

    Yeah I feel the same about the new road - it's taking up way too much space. Without, the park could potentially be 28% of the site which is much better. Considering that they are getting rid of the Gerrard St. park, it'd be nice to have a bigger park to replace it. It's just so bizarre, so...

    Toronto | T3 Bayside | 42m | 10s | Hines | 3XN

    Yeah the fact that the wood structure is effectively hidden makes it pretty meh to me. I was initially quite excited too, especially as it was building up.

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

    I wonder how much of the pattern will be loss/obscured once there are residents with lights on?

    Toronto | T3 Bayside | 42m | 10s | Hines | 3XN

    The step pattern is almost the only thing I like about it. The unclad wood was great, but no that it's all covered it....

    Toronto | Lofthouse on Logan | 24.38m | 6s | Grid | COMN Architects

    I lived/grew up around this area and I really like this addition to the neighbourhood. The colour could've been better but I think it'd be amazing to see more of this in this area. I know Elevate is happening just south of this building - albeit at a crawl.

    Canada Qualifies for 2022 World Cup.

    It kinda sucks that people (and teams) are only really complaining *now*. It's been what?, 12 years since Qatar won. I have very mixed feelings ... I want to boycott and not watch, but at the same time I want the Canadian team to do really well.

    Toronto | 49 Ontario Street | 150.4m | 42s | Dream | a—A

    Yeah it is pretty early to say. I do think the towers are a tad too tall for the area, and the podium looks very chunky in the rendering. And there's so many cases where they cheap out on materials, etc. But I'd definitely like to be wrong!

    It feels too big for the space IMHO, kind of like Time and Space. But it's really too early to say for sure.

    Actually that bus was towed away later in the day!

    Planned Sprawl in the GTA

    Not sure if this is the right thread, but I found this on BBC regarding 15-minute cities: https://www.bbc.co.uk/ideas/videos/the-simple-idea-that-could-transform-city-life/p0cqty38 It's one of the things I really liked about the Japanese cities I've visited; all the mini-(well, sometimes...

    St Lawrence Market

    I actually liked The Works burgers. :D The rooftop patio was a good bonus to the establishment as well. And boo on the loss of colours on those buildings.

    Condo-sized/compact washer/dryer options

    It would be nice if they made the ceiling traps easier to get to and clean. It's right above the laundry units with very little room to maneuver. In one of my old condo's, there was an option years later to upgrade the ceiling trap to something easier to open and discharge for a couple of...

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    Yesterday (Monday Oct 11) from Water's Edge Promenade: I have to say that I like the shape and how it sets back multiple times. I think what I don't like is that it's a lot in a small footprint (IMHO), and when you get closer, the materials and details ruin it.

    Toronto | Time and Space Condos | 101.8m | 29s | Pemberton | Wallman Architects

    I walked by yesterday at around 4pm, and although it was quite sunny, the courtyard was very dark. I think it would've been better if the courtyard faces West, or maybe even East.
