    Toronto Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Ugh the 'Whisky Tango Foxtrot' behind the bar. Not even rail related. The steaks had better be bloody good...

    Toronto Toronto | West Block Est. 1928, The LakeShore, and The LakeFront | 130.75m | 41s | Choice Properties | a—A

    aAbsolutely aAwful. Honestly you wonder what work the DRP actually do and why they can't be given a mandate to ensure some degree of architectural quality.

    Roads: Roundabouts

    In many cases in the UK, you see a roundabout with simply a small white dot painted in the centre, as opposed to a physical middle. Functionally, a cone or a little flasher in the middle of most intersections, with the appropriate arrows, would work fine for small intersections.

    Received notice today of a public hearing on 2 April at 7pm, Vaughan City Hall. Norstar Group have submitted for rezoning. The listed total will be 427 units through 6 four-storey stacked towns and a 24-storey tower on a four-storey podium. Nothing here for commercial or any mixed-use at...

    1056 Queen St W (?, 1s, JA Studio)

    Just imagine what a Blue Mountain-style winter patio could be like, though. Bonfire pits, maybe an ice bar, potential is there for year-round usable space.

    Vaughan Toronto | Expo City: Expo 1,2, & Nord | ?m | 38s | Cortel Group | AJT Architects

    I'm not sure, but I believe they may be widening the road to create viva rapidways here.

    Vaughan Toronto | 1176 Rutherford | 85m | 24s | Norstar | Turner Fleischer

    1176 Rutherford Rd. (Vaughan, 13s+24s, Norstar Group) There has been a sign saying that something was coming to the northeast corner of Rutherford and Dufferin for a while. Just got a notice of a public hearing at Vaughan city hall on 16 June at 7PM. Norstar group are proposing two towers...

    Toronto Toronto | U of T: Myhal Centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship | ?m | 8s | U of T | Montgomery Sisam

    As a current student, I'm terribly dismayed by this. It looms over Simcoe and Con Halls as well as Front Campus. It is a box and pays no heed at all to the rotund shape of Con Hall next door. I'm sure UofT will use high quality materials as they have on their other recent buildings (Goldring...

    Toronto Toronto | 3C Waterfront | ?m | ?s | 3C Lakeshore | Foster + Partners

    I personally am really pleased that the city seems to be getting some new traditional-style fountains as opposed to stark modern ones, or sprinklers from the ground. Berczy Park and Whisky Beach (not to mention 4s) hopefully start the trend here that has served Europe so well for centuries. I...

    Toronto Toronto | BMO Field Renovations | ?m | ?s | MLSE | Gensler

    As with most things, money can solve the problem of gridlines. MLSE have enough of that and have shown that they are willing to spend it to preserve the TFC experience. I wonder if there will be some measures in place to enhance the Argonauts experience and make it feel like they are not...

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

    ^^^ I personally really like Innis Residence hall (the above building) because it so breaks free from the box, especially with Rotman next door and its unabashed boxiness. I find the different materials and forms make it visually interesting too.

    Dellwood Park Towns (1236 Cawthra Rd, Sierra Building Group, 4s, ?)

    Why is the retail on the side instead of the corner? Blooming idiocy if you ask me, but I guess the parking lot has something to do with it.
