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

    Apologies as I'm sure if I read back through all the previous pages this has been rehashed to death several times before... but wow is this project ever disappointing. In the context of my long hiatus from this site and keeping up with Toronto's architecture, in coming back now this is easily...

    Toronto Toronto | One O One | ?m | 26s | Camrost-Felcorp | Onespace

    So the new tower is going ahead? Pity.

    One32 Berkeley (Concert, 10s, P+S/IBI)

    That's not setting a very high bar.

    Toronto Toronto | One Bloor East | 257.24m | 76s | Great Gulf | Hariri Pontarini

    Logistical screw up? One thing holding up a bunch of others. Not sure how common it is in construction but I see it all the time.

    Toronto Toronto | 383 Sorauren Avenue | 33.83m | 10s | Gairloch | a—A

    Why would they fight this? To create the illusion of earning a paycheck? Honestly, what are the issues, are these employment lands?

    Toronto Toronto | MaRS Centre Phase 2 | 112.77m | 20s | Alexandria | B+H

    As far as mechanical integration goes, this is above most. Take a glance out of any window in this city above 30 storeys and you'll agree. All around great building.

    Toronto Toronto | Trinity-Bellwoods Towns+Homes | ?m | 3s | Urban Capital | Richard Wengle

    I don't see what you're complaining about, look great.

    Toronto Toronto | Brant Park | 35.36m | 11s | Lamb Dev Corp | a—A

    It's not very ornate, but that we're losing this kind of detailed masonry all the time and not putting up anything new makes every loss a bit disheartening.

    Toronto Toronto | Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Toronto | 203.9m | 52s | Lifetime | a—A

    Doesn't look like a human sized hole. I'd bet someone probably bumped into it on accident.

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

    I assume that's just for the retail? Speaking of which, walked through it this past Saturday to check it out for myself. BB&B has a terrible layout, it's like a maze. And they might as well have put it in the basement since not a single pane of glass seems to be free of merchandize cluttered in...

    Toronto Toronto | 66 Isabella | 73.15m | 23s | BDP Quadrangle

    This is going to be quite the Frankenstein('s monster).

    Toronto Toronto | Sun Life Financial Tower & Harbour Plaza Residences | 236.51m | 67s | Menkes | Sweeny &Co

    Well no not quite. It's not as simple as crossing the street since there isn't one on the other side. As a pedestrian you simply can't get from Bay to York along Harbour. You either have to walk up to Lakeshore and use the path right against the ACC (because there's no southern sidewalk on...

    Markham Toronto | World on Yonge | ?m | 31s | Liberty Development | Kirkor Architects

    The materials on the office building/hotel are sh*t but I'm quite drawn to the massing. It's certainly unique.

    Toronto Toronto | Sun Life Financial Tower & Harbour Plaza Residences | 236.51m | 67s | Menkes | Sweeny &Co

    I find it a bit ridiculous that all of the sidewalks abutting this site are closed. It's a pedestrian dead-zone down there now. Not that it was particularly lively with just the parking lot or the Workmen's Comp. building before that, but still.

    Toronto Toronto | Pinnacle on Adelaide | 144.47m | 46s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    The precast concrete they're using in the courtyard looks pretty good, from the street anyways. Could almost pass for slate.

    Toronto Toronto | Ïce Condominiums at York Centre | 234.07m | 67s | Lanterra | a—A

    The three "pillars" twist slightly as it rises, it's always had the illusion of being tilted from certain angles.

    Toronto Toronto | QRC West (Queen Richmond Centre West) | 71.93m | 17s | Allied | Sweeny &Co

    This is going to be gorgeous. A little sad I won't be living here to see it progress, but that's the beauty of UT! Thanks for the update RM!

    Toronto Toronto | Peter Street Condominiums | 129.84m | 40s | CentreCourt | a—A

    This is going to be skinnier than I imagined.
