    Toronto | 145 Wellington West | 213.05m | 61s | H&R REIT | PARTISANS

    I guess that's one way to blend in a podium, goodness...

    Toronto | Nobu Residences Toronto | 156.66m | 45s | Madison Group | Teeple Architects

    The Social at Church + Dundas outstrips these two, IMO. I'll agree though that Nobu is one of the most disappointing.

    Toronto | Eight Cumberland | 170m | 51s | Great Gulf | a—A

    While that maybe a reality, I'm not sure it should be used as a convenient excuse.

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto I see a lot of winding paths, undulating landscapes and organic waterways instead. And not so much of Ferris wheels, roller coasters and bumper car spectacles. So if this an amusement park, this is one I definitely want to go to and experience.

    Toronto | 1 St Clair West | 165.63m | 49s | Slate | Gensler

    What evidence do you have to support that? I mean, you are asserting a claim that's unsupportive of a long time poster. ...that said, you should be aware that June Callwood Park doesn't have a lot of positive mileage among many readers here. So the comparison that a McD's would be better there...

    Toronto | 350 Bloor West | 117.65m | 35s | Andrin | IBI Group

    My opinion will always be that they should keep the elder structures both for this project and 328 Bloor. Work with the character that already exist with this intersection and The Annex will have a need to turn this into a stumpier version of soulless Yonge & Eglinton to deal with...

    Love Park | 3m | 1s | City of Toronto | Claude Cormier + Associés

    On the bright side of life, they can at least sing soprano during choir practice after the fact... 😼

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Renders usually show a narrative. Plans usually show the actuals. So don't ever judge the latter as something carved in stone. Especially with finer details.

    Toronto | Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    While I gather it's been 10 years of things happening behind the scene, I am not sure we'd ever want what they where proposing here 10 years ago. That is, a complete destruction of heritage components, building designs that would of even defied technological advances made in Neal Stephenson's...

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    ...since it's being constructed there I would wager a probable "yes".

    Toronto | East Harbour | 214.2m | 65s | Cadillac Fairview | Adamson

    Sorta has that mall vibe from Stranger Things going for it...

    Toronto | 191 College | 95.18m | 31s | Unix Housing Group | Icon

    Too busy and contrasting to be "Design" Haus. So I suspect it was CampusOne just west of it as the other parent. >.<

    Toronto | Lakeside Residences | 158m | 49s | Greenland | Hariri Pontarini

    ...and please don't let it be Concord. >.<

    After reading this, I wish Mr. 42 was one of those civic leaders.

    AGO Global Contemporary (Selldorf, Diamond Schmitt, Two Row, 6s)

    Yeah...that gives a new meaning to couch potato. 😼
