  1. A Torontonian Now

    Toronto Beltline Yards | ?m | ?s | Hullmark | Allies and Morrison

    It's not like no one is trying to think of a better model. Allies and Morrison came to my mind before Alex even got there. Not just for the beltline, but also the Mr. Christie's site. Here's another take on what could work better...

    Toronto 1 Marquette | 22.04m | 4s | 1 Marquette Avenue Apartments Limited | AAA

    Even if the top addition has to be corrugated, please let them at least nix the brick painting...

    Canada Life Building 344 University Avenue (?, ?s, GWL)

    330 University Avenue is essentially a courthouse now. It had long held the Commercial List courtrooms, but in the last several years, the majority of civil court functions for Toronto's Superior Court of Justice have moved there from 393 University. Those renovations have been at considerable...

    Toronto Bijou on Bloor | 42.1m | 12s | Plaza | BDP Quadrangle

    The space is still designed to have this on the rear ground level, so I hope/expect it will happen. @Northern Light often has insight into grocery store leasing - any info you can share?

    Toronto 2 Sandfield | 12.23m | 3s | Format Group | Richard Wengle

    Wow. I simply do not buy the idea that changing the frontage to York Mills (without new vehicular access there) and adding townhouses in this location rather than a single family home is not appropriate here. I would love to know how hard the neighbours lobbied staff on this.

    Toronto East Harbour Transit Hub | 14.35m | 1s | Metrolinx | Metrolinx

    And a loss of heritage and a loss of public amenity (complete street for Broadview).

    Toronto 4180 Kingston | 69.7m | 20s | NorthAmerican | BDP Quadrangle

    On the whole a nice improvement: addition of retail, larger share of larger units, less parking. Only 3 elevators, though. 106.6 units per elevator is no where near the most egregious ratio we've seen, but I still would have preferred this at 4.

    Toronto 65 King Street East | 82.9m | 18s | Carttera | WZMH

    Whoever decided to start from the right side rather than the left side of the word, and then pause there, has a good sense of humour.

    Toronto 171-175 Lowther Avenue | 44.85m | 11s | Jordan Reznick | Gabriel Fain Architects

    I rather like both the base and the Prii-inspired tower. I understand the criticism that they clash, but am willing to give this one the benefit of the doubt. I also like the scale for infill here. It fits, unlike the recent proposal at 40 Walmer.

    Burlington / 400 Brant St / The Queens Head (formerly)

    These types of tavern/hotel/restaurant establishments were the first community hubs in Ontario, played an important economic and even political role, and were common across the province. All of those which remain are important heritage structures that ought to be restored/maintained. I agree...

    Toronto Bijou on Bloor | 42.1m | 12s | Plaza | BDP Quadrangle

    Some more hoarding is up on the west side of the site, and the north side's bottom slab has been fully poured. Taken today:

    Toronto 214-230 Sherbourne | 154.9m | 47s | KingSett Capital | Hariri Pontarini

    Calling public housing a slum is inaccurate and in really poor taste.

    Toronto Ontario Line: Osgoode Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    Admittedly, there are still a lot of trees at Osgoode. But the chopping was false urgency as no further work has been done. Taken October 25:
