    Toronto Toronto | Quay House | 73.15m | 21s | Empire | Kirkor Architects

    I actually think the cladding looks good - not great, but good. I was worried about it all turning to spandrel. Hopefully they pull off the white/grey/black pattern well. However as I recall from the planning docs the single light grey panel you see in that picture was supposed to be metallic...

    East Bayfront: Parkside/Bayside/Dockside neighbourhoods Overview

    Oh no, I can't help but notice the LRT path in that rendering isn't green...

    Toronto Toronto | Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85.04m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    I did read a Twitter thread recently (last week) about a large developer that was teetering on the edge. The developer wasn't named, but the consensus in the comments was that it was WestBank... If true it'll be very sad. One of my favourite developers in Toronto.

    Toronto Toronto | The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Interestingly the filings also say that 346 residential units have been sold totalling $675 million. 70 remain unsold, all above the 50th floor so presumably will go for a premium. I'm not sure of the economics of the retail, hotel, and commercial components but ya, that seems like a big gap.

    Toronto Toronto | The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Some tidbits from the court filings: 1. The project has recently lost its anchor retail tenant (i.e. Apple is out). No replacement yet. 2. Estimated completion date is currently March 2025, but that the realistic date is July 2025. 3. Estimated budget is now over $2 billion. But to be clear, as...

    First balcony railing going in.

    Toronto Toronto | Aquavista at Bayside | 46.94m | 13s | Tridel | Arquitectonica

    There's no other retail units in that building for the store to expand into, so perhaps either (a) the article is wrong, (b) they're including the loading space, or (c) the store is adding a patio / outdoor space along the front and including that?

    Toronto Toronto | The Bentway (was Under Gardiner) | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I love it. Paint every one of those concrete blocks under the Gardiner. We can rename Lake Shore to Rainbow Road.

    Toronto Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 2) | 299m | 90s | Menkes | a—A

    Noticed a building permit for a retail unit in Sugar Wharf Phase 1 was submitted for construction of a sales center for Phase 2.

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

    Overall I quite like these, though I was really hoping the pattern on the west tower would come together like it did on the east tower, but it looks random.

    Toronto Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 2) | 299m | 90s | Menkes | a—A

    Menkes has posted a video on their Instagram account about 2023, and it specifically mentions Sugar Wharf Phase 2 will launch this year. No additional info or new pictures unfortunately.

    Toronto Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    You're right, I misspoke - when I refer to Wellington between Church and Jarvis, I'm actually referring to the westbound section of Front St between Church and Jarvis (in my head I always consider that Wellington). That's the area I think could be pedestrianized. I'm not suggesting removing of...

    Toronto Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    Was walking by recently and thought it would be possible to make the area around St Lawrence a pretty incredible experience due to the oversized median (not unlike the University Ave Park concept). Pedestrianize Wellington (edit: actually meant the westbound lanes of Front St) from Church to...

    Toronto Toronto | 20 Front West | 172.4m | 52s | Brookfield | KPMB

    This does seem to be for that SE-ish corner pictured, based on the address in that notice being 20-22 Front St West. I see this spot frequently and think about how it's a bit of an eyesore from most angles. Hoping for an iconic tower here. Though the front of the building is quite nice and I...

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

    If I may ask, what's so terrible about the space? Doesn't seem bad from the outside.

    Toronto Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 2) | 299m | 90s | Menkes | a—A

    It seems rare for such extensive work to occur on a condo site prior to sales even starting. There's a lot of work to be done to prep the site with facade retention and building demolition, so I suppose it makes sense. I wonder if they actually start digging down before sales - that would seem...

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

    To echo the above, article in the Globe today says Shopify has a 15 year lease and it certainly implies there is no out clause. Has quotes from RioCan and Allied saying that Shopify is continuing to pay its rent and has not said it intends to break the lease. So maybe it sits empty for a few...

    Toronto Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 2) | 299m | 90s | Menkes | a—A

    Although Menkes has clearly decided to go ahead with some site prep, Phase 2 hasn't even gone on sale yet so actual construction of the towers doesn't seem imminent. Menkes did include Phase 2 as part of their "what's coming in 2022" video released at the beginning of the year, suggesting they...
