    Toronto Toronto | Rogers Centre Renovations | ?m | ?s | Toronto Blue Jays | Populous

    Ah right. But that space must still be there... it was a fairly decent gym. I wonder what it's being used for, or if it is just sitting abandoned for the last decade.

    Toronto Toronto | Rogers Centre Renovations | ?m | ?s | Toronto Blue Jays | Populous

    Am I the only one who remembers the gym in the Skydome? I am definitely not imagining this because I used to go there regularly. It was one of the only gyms in the area that had squash courts. If I'm not mistaken, I believe it was a Goodlife. One day I went in, and the receptionist told me they...

    Toronto Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    A name is a completely imaginary concept - people can "call" something whatever they want. If most people know the building as the ACC, and prefer that name to the "new" one, then it simply makes logical sense to refer to it as the ACC - unless you are dying to give some free publicity to...

    Toronto Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    Took me a while to figure out what "SBA" was. Can we stick to calling it the ACC

    Toronto Toronto | Rogers Centre Renovations | ?m | ?s | Toronto Blue Jays | Populous

    Just saw my first baseball game of the season in the SkyDome and I'm actually impressed with how well it's held up. Rogers has done a great job with the landscaping around the SkyDome itself - all new interlocking stone everywhere, new railings with integrated LED lighting, even the drain grates...

    Toronto Toronto | The Hudson Condos | 68.88m | 21s | Great Gulf | Diamond Schmitt

    Looks quite dull if you ask me. Was and still is overpriced. I had a few friends living there and the streetcar noise was always quite bad.. although they had a long respite from that with the Spadina streetcar track upgrade. Don't understand what all the praise is for.

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

    Isn't that more or less what they did with the Eiffel tower?

    400 University Ave (Re-Cladding Zurich, Quadrangle)

    +1... I have a very bad feeling about this one - especially after looking at that test panel...

    Toronto Toronto | St Regis Toronto Hotel and Residences | 281.93m | 58s | JFC Capital | Zeidler

    What a disaster of a building. There were many holding out hope - saying we should wait until it's completed... but I think we can all agree now this thing is a disaster.

    Wow... did not see this one coming...

    Toronto Toronto | Fly Condos | ?m | 24s | Empire | Graziani + Corazza

    Well it's certainly getting something done to it - it's been fenced off pretty much all summer.

    Toronto Toronto | Fly Condos | ?m | 24s | Empire | Graziani + Corazza

    The parking lot to the north of Fly is the enormous one that stretches diagonally all the way from Front and Spadina to Blue Jays way and Wellington. And I do actually agree that it would be a shame to build something tall enough here to leave Clarence Square park in permanent darkness.

    Toronto Toronto | 300 Front Street West | 156.05m | 49s | Tridel | Wallman Architects

    They can't possibly be leaving the north wall like that.... can they???

    Toronto Toronto | 180 Wellington West | ?m | 12s | Stantec

    I imagine that's simply because they have no choice. The north side of the building is pressed right up against the condo to the north of it (I think it's called symphony tower or something), and there would be no room to remove the brick and replace it.

    Toronto 10 Ordnance Park | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | DTAH

    There's all this hearsay about the area around the abattoir smelling badly from blocks away... and yet I honestly don't remember this area smelling particularly badly when walking through it.

    Toronto Toronto | Living Shangri-La Toronto | 214.57m | 66s | Westbank | James Cheng

    That is remarkably dissapointing... let's hope they are indeed just testing so far...

    Toronto Toronto | St Regis Toronto Hotel and Residences | 281.93m | 58s | JFC Capital | Zeidler

    Was heading east down adelaide the other day towards this thing and couldn't help but notice just how ugly it was. I remember when I said that many months ago, people were saying "give it a chance.. wait till construction is finished", etc etc. But now that it is mostly finished I think it's...

    Light/Power poles being wrapped to stop them being flyered

    Has anyone noticed the new black/textured wrapping that has gone up around light and power poles across the city (well, downtown at least). I've noticed it around the entertainment district - not sure where else they have applied these. Looks like they are designed to prevent flyers from...

    Toronto Toronto | INDX Condos | 178.6m | 54s | Lifetime | P + S / IBI

    Agreed - that is absurd - I'd love to see a floorplan for that unit. My current unit is exactly 740sqft + balcony and is a 1 bedroom + den. Granted it's spacious by today's standards, but by no means "huge". I recently saw similarly sized units to mine with 2 bedrooms and always wondered how...
