    Toronto Toronto | CityPlace Puente de Luz Bridge | ?m | ?s | Concord Adex | Francisco Gazitua

    sidewalk I don't get it. Is there no plan to put a sidewalk on the south side of Front St.? What does this bridge connect to?

    Toronto Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 345.5m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Looked a lot nicer in the original render...

    I'll do the same (email). In the meantime, anyone have any experience with One Zone wifi service? Might be a temporary, stopgap solution.

    Teksavvy told me similar. Not yet classified as residential building according to their system. They didn't mention a date, though. As someone who works from home, that's a huge problem for me.

    Toronto Toronto | Bisha Hotel and Residences | 146.91m | 44s | Lifetime | Wallman Architects

    Jan 2012 starts seems optimistic. June 2013 finish seems delusional for a 42-storey building. No?

    Toronto Toronto | Charlie Condos | 122.83m | 36s | Great Gulf | Diamond Schmitt

    @riley: I asked this on the forum a while ago, but never got a response. Wonder about your take: Can you get any work done while this construction is going right next door? I've always walked by these types of side-by-side developments imagining how annoying the construction noise would be...

    Assuming they refinish the concrete columns (makes sense to wait for the hoarding to come down before doing that, btw), then I think this is turning out better than the renders. Most agree that changes above street level probably took a step back. But here, at street level (where it counts most...

    Article: Victory Condos (478 King West, BLVD, 12s, Wallman)

    Ugh. The black brick looks horrible here. If the brick were similar to the building's neighbours, I'd give thumbs up. But really don't like the contrast in this case.

    Toronto Toronto | Charlie Condos | 122.83m | 36s | Great Gulf | Diamond Schmitt

    While we're on the topic of proximity, if there are any south-facing Glas residents here, I'm curious: how loud has construction at Charlie been over the last year or so? Enough to make you teeth (read: seeth)? Or is it manageable? I've always been curious when I walk by.

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

    Was browsing the city archives today and came across this 1987 proposal for the site... Obviously went nowhere, but always fun to look at models...

    Toronto Toronto | Tableau Condominiums | 124.05m | 36s | Urban Capital | Wallman Architects

    That podium looks like it will completely overwhelm the street. I'm all for the height. But the base seems better suited to King/Bay than Peter/Richmond.

    Toronto Toronto | M5V Condominiums | 118.87m | 35s | Lifetime | Core Architects

    Ya, they told me it will look like the render. But that could be interpreted in many ways. Maybe they meant something will be red. Who knows. I'd rather trust these scans. Thanks aguduser. Mystery solved.

    Toronto Toronto | M5V Condominiums | 118.87m | 35s | Lifetime | Core Architects

    Recently spoke with an M5V employee. Apparently, the mechanical room is still part of the plan. Final product should look like the model/render. It's just still at an early stage. Not sure what that means exactly, but sounded reassuring.

    I thought that middle chunk was supposed to be red, but it seems that they've installed glass like the other floors. Am I seeing that right?

    Ah yes, as part of the feds' Harboufront saga. The perspective confused me a little. Taking another look at this 1959 picture I have on file jogged my memory.

    Fascinating stuff. Thanks, Goldie.

    I'll repeat what I posted in the blog: Goldie, where did you find that page? Would love to have a look at the book. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that the shipyard is actually WEST of the silos, is it not?
