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

    Anyone surprised by how skinny those support beams look ...especially for an entire park that will be overtop here?

    Yonge-Dundas Square/Sankofa Square (Brown + Storey Architects)

    Everything about this is looking to be so poorly executed. Do it right or just don’t do it at all.

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

    You lost your grand podium - but in its place, we will place some umbrellas! Exactly what this city deserves.

    Hudson's Bay Company

    The OCD in me is totally not understanding the thinking (or lack) behind the spacing of those two signs.

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

    I'd be more than willing to sacrifice a few buildings + a theatre, if this complex elevates the cities design conscious - even just a notch or two. That in itself would be the greatest legacy bestowed by both gehry & mirv to a city sadly stuck with polite gestures of design.

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    I definitely share coolcanadian's enthusiasm with having a great resort/casino - definitely Ontario place being a fantastic spot. After all, the place was closed because A) it failed to attract enough visitors to cover costs B) became a drain on the public's purse - with a lack of ongoing...

    Toronto 2015 Pan American Games

    The other proposals - notably 2 & 3 - were much much better. Floating vinyl balloons...come on!

    Toronto Toronto | U of T: Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport | 51m | 6s | U of T | Patkau

    Crap - sometimes I think stakeholders in these projects should just delay the project until its adequately funded or NOT build it at all.

    Toronto Toronto | L-Tower | 204.82m | 58s | Cityzen | Daniel Libeskind

    It's awful - looks extremely cheap. I'd be very upset if i purchased a unit here. I'm starting to think that builders should be forced to have samples of cladding in their show room - just as important as their interior demo suites they hawk.

    Toronto, Capital of North America?

    Guess I'm part of the brain drain. As a 30 yr old professional, born & raised in Toronto, I moved to LA for work (multinational corp) 2.5 years ago. From my experience so far, I'll find it hard to return back as the advantages far outweigh the cons. My income tax rate is about the same...

    GO Transit: Union Station Shed Replacement & Track Upgrades (Zeidler)

    The steel beams should be painted white go along with the airy looking feeling.

    Toronto Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure ON

    Gawd people definitely need to become less prudish. A casino would definitely be a great asset to Ontario place, great location - and a permanent solution to fund a cash-starved operation. Its a win-win-win proposition. I never knew there was a constitutional right for Niagara, and our...

    5 freakin years to figure things out!?!? They can build an entire Disney park in half the time. > Mr. Duncan says the water park, amusement rides and the Cinesphere will be closed until 2017 while a panel looks at various ways to make Ontario Place a “must-visit†destination for tourists.

    Toronto Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure ON

    Yes - a Casino would be an absolutely perfect fit and easily make the venue an all-year attraction. With a nice a revenue split between the casino / Ontario place / the city - all parties would benefit from the revenue. I can't imagine anything else that would draw a steady stream of people...

    Article: A Sneak Peak Of The New Ritz-Carlton Hotel's Stunning Lobby

    The transparent walkway is a nice WOW.

    Ugh Marshalls?! I now live in LA, and even though this city is littered with them, I haven't step foot in one twice. I consider it lower on the retail scale than Winners (and I'm somewhat a fan of Winners).

    Toronto Toronto | Maple Leaf Square | 185.92m | 54s | Lanterra | KPMB

    Is it just me, or does the entire project just seem like a big 'meh'. For something billing itself as a 'sports and entertainment' complex, it just seems way too sterile. I understand the project is still under construction, but the bones are unfortunately too corporate and institutional...

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

    Geez - what a sad state those light polls are in caltranes first pic. And this is Canada's premier financial district? ...ugh.

    Head of Slips (Waterfront Toronto, West 8/DTAH)

    Since when did they inherit the right to any views - especially over public property. I would definitely love to have a chat with these folks...

    City-TV & OMNI-TV's H.Q. (formerly Torch, Quadrangle)

    What really bothers me with the square is the fact the fountains were originally lit from below - and were programmed to 'dance' in various squences. What the hell happened?
