    Toronto Toronto | Catalyst at 77 Wade | 43.72m | 7s | Seeker Labs | DIALOG

    Per the Colliers post linked above by @emphurent , this is no longer an office complex — it's Life Sciences, meaning wet labs. The market for these types of spaces is very different, because the work requires specialized equipment — so it can't be done remotely. Relatedly, it's also a really...

    ^Includes some clarification about the developer: "Condoman Developments is a subsidiary of Condoman Realty Inc., a well-respected brokerage that has been serving the downtown core for 15 years. " "Having sold over 3000 condos under Broker of Record Howard Youhanan, the transition into...

    Agreed. Something must be done about the relentless scourge of coffee bar light pollution, which swallows the entire nighttime cityscape in its unyielding and indifferent maw.

    Toronto Toronto | 55C: 55 Charles Condos | 167m | 50s | MOD Developments | a—A

    A friend of mine who lives at 63 Charles told me that this building — and its taller neighbour to the west (55 Charles) have been purchased by Mod, with a 55-storey (ish?) tower planned. This was announced at a residents' meeting a few days ago. Rezoning is apparently expected to be filed next...

    I'm fearful that their Daniels Waterfront towers will turn out a special kind of bad.

    Toronto Toronto | in.DE Dundas East & Jarvis Condominiums | 65.53m | 21s | Menkes | Turner Fleischer

    This strikes me as a particularly half-hearted attempt to pick up on the rhythm and materiality of the neighbouring street level. (Doesn't mean much without fine-grained retail space inside). The 'brick' frontages look effectively painted on — even in the rendering. As for the tower, I'm...

    Toronto Toronto | 2 Carlton | 251.1m | 73s | Northam | IBI Group

    While I understand this is (hopefully) just a general massing model in service of a rezoning exercise, I find the aesthetic ineptitude of the spires almost comical. It's one of the laziest "design elements" I've seen in Toronto, as if the architects just randomly tacked them on as a way of...

    Toronto Toronto | Grid Condos | 157.88m | 50s | CentreCourt | IBI Group

    If this is any indication of how Axis turns out materially, there's plenty reason for optimism.
