This is one project I did not get to visit at the end, but was a great project to work on. It opens today.

+ I notice the cranes are up for the in-fill at 1441 R-L (15 floors) and the 3rd phase of the O'nessy project (15 floors).

If the historical intention was to build a skyscraper cluster around PVM / Central station, I think we can now say that this cluster has consolidated itself around the Bell centre. The skyline has shifted to west so much that it makes the 'central' cluster (PVM et al.) and the eastern cluster (Desjardins / PDA) look quite underwhelming in comparison.

OAKVILLE | [Downtown] The Randall Residences | 5 Fl

You can get more updates and local real estate and design related content from the marketing team by following @therandallresidences
on IG. Im not affiliated with the project, but in my opinion this is neo-Haussmanian done right! Im hoping they paint the window trim a warm grey or black.

^Ugh.

It's been 3 months since I was downtown Toronto for pleasure, camera in hand.
Riding by on the Spadina LRT, University Residences fades into the background. From Oxford Street, it's a beast:

If you can't afford movers, this is how you do it condoKIDS

Fabrik is growing on me

King Portland Centre

Thompson Residences


cool new brewpub opening soon at 111 Bathurst - like this building

it's neighbour musee not so nice though




Harlowe




I bought some beer here today

Spadina Queen is my fave Teeple residential building to date - btw I hooked up Tridel with Teeple so yes you can thank me

King Charlotte blinds me to a future design

Peter Street Condos is still the best design here, with Tableau 2nd and 87 Peter a distant 3rd



Not liking 87 Peter



PJ pit

The Bond is another disappointment



I think the densities and pedestrian intensity of the Entertainment District has finally surpassed Yaletown - kinda crazy to think it's only 1/10 built out
Bisha has a sign

very Vancouver weather today and I kind of liked the austere grey wall reflecting the light




King Blue

Hate this logo

A developer finally let's aA drink the cherry kool aid at Smart House





Is the party over? Bear sighting

We were booking hotels for Next years Regatta and the selection is already quite limited.

Next year is the 200th anniversary, so I imagine it'll be bigger than usual.

I don't know when ALT opens, sorry - but the exterior work is nearly done. Still looks nearly completely empty inside.

The Inn at Mallard Cottage just opened in Quidi Vidi, which is only a block away from the races. It's maybe a 15-minute walk in the other direction, down Forest Road, to downtown.

http://www.theinnbymallardcottage.ca/

If you could get something there, it'd probably be the most enjoyable, beautiful, experience.

JAG is a good option if they have any room left:

http://www.steelehotels.com/our-hote...#sect-overview

There's also the Luxus (it's the beige building with black windows directly behind ALT in the photo above):

https://www.theluxus.ca/

If you're renting a car, there's a shitload of cheap hotels on Kenmount Road and out near the airport. It's a brutal place to stay, though - very few cities do suburbs as soul-suckingly awful as we do. It probably feels as draining as I imagine Laval does from the pictures.

Don't forget the Regatta is weather-dependent. It's the first suitable Wednesday in August.

Already booked 2 hotels near the lake. but was thinking Alt might be a good one when open. Wifes' been to 2 of them already. One was raining. We haven't decided yet if we are flying or going to do the grand cross Canada drive. There is an event in Indianapolis we were planning on getting to on the drive back.

Friends out there mentioned we should book the day after this years regatta because of the 200th anniversary.

I am sure there will be a few Arsholes from the Mainland there that week.

River District in south Vancouver. This is a large brownfield development that will bring near Olympic Village level density to the Fraser River.

Different angle of ALT Hotel.

Its place in the "skyline" (right of centre).

All of them (hard to see, but you can, from left-to-right) Hilton, Star of the Sea, MIX, Alt. In the thumbnail, Alt is the right-most waterfront building.

We almost had seven at once but two of them (MIX and ALT) came down. We now have two at MUN, one at the Avalon mall, one at the Hilton, and one at Star of the Sea. It's definitely our highest simultaneous number. However, excluding the Hilton, none of them seem necessary to me. The rest are all 5-6 floors.

It depends on the method of construction. Some people I'm sure know more about it than I do, but the cranes are often used to pour concrete. Concrete construction is required in many cities above 4 floors (in some places it's now 6 floors or more), but shorter buildings can be concrete too.

Sometimes taller buildings use concrete blocks instead of poured concrete and don't require a tower crane during construction (the examples of this I've seen max out around 7 or 8 floors).

In person this condo is a bit of a beast due to it's scale and location just north of the much smaller Queen Street buildings but it has been executed well and is is being moved into already. Just a few elements are left as they wrap up construction.

One of those times where the exterior got more attention than the interior. With the building's east/west exposure, many of those units will be quite dark.
