    Toronto Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I know this opinion is not shared by many, but I hate that they’re leaving that crane there. It doesn’t exactly complement the beautiful, natural environment they’re trying to establish. I get the desire to acknowledge the area’s industrial past, but this is just ugly and feels way overboard...

    Nice! I was hoping for the best but feared the worst.

    Have they started to reduce the thickness of the supercolumns above the new mechanical level? These rebar cages don’t look quite as hefty as before. 📷: @BloorMan

    Looks like a pretty massive transfer slab is underway at this level. 📷: @wmedia

    I am not getting ‘open for Christmas’ vibes from this. 😀

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

    This stretch is really going to be the Great Wall of Podiums when these are all done, isn’t it.

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

    Overall I think this looks fantastic — I mean, for a shopping mall — but I get a bit annoyed every time I look at all these plastic drain pipes. I’m no expert, but could that really have been the only solution? 📷: @Red Mars

    Sorry, that wasn’t directed at you, it was for the small handful of people lurking behind the scenes waiting for an opportunity to go off on this again. ✌️

    Can we please not spend the next five pages speculating about project financing, whether Mizrahi is a crook, how shady the investors are, etc etc, based on a random comment from “some guy” on Facebook (who may well be the dude who comes here stirring it up every couple of months)? Thanks in...

    Dammit, I can’t find one single thing to be mad at with this project.

    Hopefully the purpose of the test is to figure out how to resolve this corner so it fits like the mockup. 😄 📷: @jer1961 📷: UT update

    Possibly this is a dumb question, but could those bits of cladding on the corner be test pieces so workers can perfect installing them before they start working with the ‘real’ ones? Is that a thing? Renders suggest that the cladding is one continuous piece from the corner over to the column...

    My hunch — based on this rendering — is that the overlapping portion might be transparent, and you’ll see the banding through it. (Or perhaps that’s an optical illusion 😀). 📷: UT project page

    Second row of glass incoming! Maybe we’ll get that first glimpse of the remaining cladding for Christmas. 📷: @skycandy

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

    These new pieces of steel look like they‘re the connectors that will form the ‘plate’ of the cantilevered support structure. 📷: @Johnny Au “12 steel nodes form the base of the bracing structure, providing connection points for steel beams that extend out to the edge of the building’s...

    Me too - but I imagine it’ll all be covered in protective film, so quite a while yet before we see the full impact.

    It looks like they’ve maybe started some steel work? 📷: @DarkSideDenizen

    Toronto Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 344.9m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Interesting observation. From my perspective this turned out exactly like the renders, with the exception of the crown. The ‘angled planes‘ appear to be formed by changes to the floorplate at nearly every level — not just the balcony glass — so I’d be curious to hear more about what part you...

    This looks a lot like a spider crane used for installing windows. 📷: @Benito
