    The end of FHRITP in Toronto?

    The guy is a big moron but this part of what he said is being misunderstood like he was saying he would do that to her. What he was actually referencing was an incident that happened in England to a reporter there. He was clearly trying to say that yelling something obscene isn't as bad as that...

    Toronto Toronto | Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85.04m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    The Annex is already covered in rental properties and it's one of the nicest neighborhoods in the entire city.

    Toronto Toronto | Mirvish Village (Honest Ed's Redevelopment) | 85.04m | 26s | Westbank | Henriquez Partners

    I still don't understand why he had to sell the Mirvish Village converted homes and not just Honest Eds. But that part is done. If Westbank had any respect for the neighborhood, they would only redevelop where Honest Eds stands and leave the homes next to it. Sadly, I can't imagine a world...

    The Beer Store: Political Reasons to Keep/Kill It

    Politicians are so gutless. They never do what is right even if it's blindingly obvious. Everyone can see how terrible the Beer Store is and how it makes no sense to have a government approved monopoly- but they never do what is right. I wish just for once they would just do what is better for...

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

    The plan looks great! I just hope the interesting elements don't get scaled down or cut completely once it receives approval though. Also, Riocan being involved doesn't make me optimistic for the type of retail businesses that will be moving in here.

    Toronto/Chicago comparisons

    My wife is from the States (New York) and her impression from living there her whole life is that nobody seems to mention Chicago that doesn't live in the midwest. It just isn't on the list of American cities that people talk about anymore (her opinion)

    TTC: Pape Station Renovation

    Thank you for the information. It makes me sad that Pape Station is going to look like that for a long time. It makes no sense that this happened. I just can't picture such awful looking art on subway walls anywhere else in the world. I am usually not one to complain about Toronto in this way...

    TTC: Pape Station Renovation

    I just went past this station today. What the heck happened with that artwork?! Why is there mid-90s horrible photoshop effects on the photos? This is just terrible and it makes me wonder how they decided on the artist to use for this station. There is no way they held a competition or...

    Toronto Toronto | Market Wharf | 110.33m | 33s | Context Development | a—A

    It makes sense that someone with bad taste in women would have bad taste in buildings!

    Toronto Toronto | Aura at College Park | 271.87m | 78s | Canderel | Graziani + Corazza

    Seems like it will at least look better than Trump.

    Thanks for the tabloid propaganda

    Toronto Toronto | Concord Canada House | 231.97m | 74s | Concord Adex | Arcadis

    If that is the case, then I hope whatever beat this beautiful design was chosen because it is even better.. and not because it would be cheaper to make or less offensive to boring buyers.

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    I wonder how construction is coming along? They are digging the tunnel already, right?

    Toronto Toronto | Aga Khan Museum + Ismaili Centre | ?m | ?s | Aga Khan Dev. | Maki and Associates

    Thanks for the people in the thread that are posting the photo updates. I'm not a religious person but I find this to be quite an interesting set of buildings and I will definitely visit the museum when it is open!

    Toronto Toronto | Toronto City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Perkins&Will

    City Hall is a really impressive and important looking building.. Aside from the CN Tower, it was the building my wife noticed most on her first trip to Toronto. She had never heard of it or seen it beforehand but noticed it and loved it immediately when we walked past it.

    Toronto Toronto | Living Shangri-La Toronto | 214.57m | 66s | Westbank | James Cheng

    I'm usually of the opinion that the public art component of condos is a waste of money that would have been better used for anything else like park improvements or whatever... but THIS sculpture looks amazing and adds positive visual interest to the streetscape just like it should. Great work...

    Scotiabank Cinema

    More things to choose from to do downtown obviously. I used to go to the movie theatre a lot when I lived in Scarborough. Now that I live downtown, I hardly ever go because there are a million other things I can do.

    Advertising on the TTC

    Oh yeah. It's earth-shaking. It's right up there with a story about a cat stuck in a tree.
