Why not?

Lol first you question my accuracy, now it's my perspective. Let's be real - Vancouver's suburbs are different in that some go beyond "affordable plan B", and can support designs for $2-4M per-unit buildings like River Green or Grovesnor Ambleside. That simply doesn't happen east of Cambie or north of Davenport

Add wit to that growing list. You must be the worst public defender out there with such weak counter arguments. Knowing the beacon's colour doesn't prove anything above you "visiting from time to time" . This is about design; the multiple trends that have transpired during this lengthy boom (i.e. Davisville boomed 10 years before Eglinton) and the competency of the firm working within similar budgets. (i.e. Graziani and Corrazza to aA) Let's not forget the Yonge corridor boasts some of the most wealthiest communities in the city with condo prices to match. That's a grandiose generalization to lump everything above Davisville together.

155 St Clair West, 1046 and 1052 Yonge , and One Forest Hill have units $2-4M and above.

200 Russell Hill Rd is selling HUGE units for over 4 million.

Churchill Park condos (336 Spadina) wouldnt be out of place in Ambleside. It has 3400 square foot units for 1.8M (I believe these are 2011 pre construction prices) that would go for 2.4M or higher if the exact same tower was built beside Park Royal Shopping Center.

Then, of course 1 Post Road has some of the most expensive condominiums in Toronto with huge floor plans.

Once again, it's Jardins Windsor and was completed roughly 10 years ago.

Both those Ice District towers are looking great, neat to see the indent for the balconies of the JW Marriott hotel and condo tower.

Tenant work on Stantec is now underway. Looking at a late October move in. The concrete pore should be done by then but it will be 2019 to finish the tower. The plaza may not be usable until 2020, due to tower B construction.
