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

    Sorry, not sure what happened. Hope this one works:

    Regent Park Phase 3 General

    In this series, you may be able catch the crane picking up and then dropping a door on the rubble:

    Here are some "before" pictures to compare in a few years when this thread is over:

    Regent Park Phase 3 General

    I bike by this every day. This is from last week but major progress since then.

    Toronto Toronto | Concord Canada House | 231.97m | 74s | Concord Adex | Arcadis

    Whatever it looks like, it'll probably look great in the middle of this:

    Moving on from restaurant pros & cons, the neighbourhood just welcomed a great new addition on the ground floor of this building (in the unit east of this new Italian restaurant). officially opened this week; it is a new family medicine clinic and the doctors are...

    I think this is an encouraging development for this area. That is a corner lot that could get away with no revitalization but instead a higher-than-expected design proposal pops up. I hope it is that catalyst for some more cleaning up on Pape / Gerrard / Carlaw area. Ideally, they should...

    Toronto Toronto | Union Centre | 298m | 54s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    Thanks IC24, that helps make it clear. I like how the redo of Station street into a raised plaza works alongside the reconfigured skywalk. It should also make the parkette on Front street more viable as it will connect on the same level as the plaza and skywalk. This will make it easier to...

    Toronto Toronto | 354 Pape Avenue | 39.67m | 10s | Sigma | IBI Group

    Thanks for posting these. I really like this proposal and the drawing depict a better quality design that I would expect for this lot. The area around Gerrard / Carlaw / Pape is ripe for low to mid-rise redevelopment. I appreciate that this proposal doesn't demolish the building stock...

    Toronto Toronto | Union Centre | 298m | 54s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    I am glad this one is moving forward. It is great to see more transit-oriented office developments popping up adjacent to Union station. I am a bit confused on their plan for the skywalk. I read the application document and the end result is puzzling. I take it from the proposal that the...

    Toronto Toronto | Riverside Square | 64.6m | 20s | Streetcar | RAW Design

    ^^ thanks for sharing this notice. It will be very interesting to see how they propose to connect these parcels of land. It has the potential to be a high-impact redevelopment in terms of built form and connectedness. To be successful, the proposed "valuable new services" and "publicly...

    Toronto Toronto | Library District Condominiums + Toronto's 99th Library | ?m | 29s | Context Development | KPMB

    ^^ no not yet. It looks like its roughed in but future connection doesn't look level. There is so much other staging and debris around it is hard to tell if they're working on it or not.
