Honestly, perusing this thread and looking at the photos of various projects in the city, you can hardly tell the difference between a shot of a typical Montreal project or Toronto project. Posts # 8947 and 8948 illustrate this perfectly - I thought I was looking at photos of the same neighbourhood until I realised the photos were from two different posts from posters in two different cities. The real difference in style appears to be in Vancouver.

I don't see that at all. I would go as far and say the typical Toronto project has more Vancouver influences than Montreal. The West Donlands is about the only place with a stronger Montreal vibe.

Maybe. I might just be looking at a very particular sample size, or maybe the difference in climate and natural surroundings tricks me into thinking that Vancouver's architecture looks different. Admittedly, I'm mostly just skimming this thread. But now I suspect that the actual truth is that all the condos being built in Canada these days look the same. Just after I made my last post, I was skimming further and mistook some Edmonton projects for Toronto.

Generally, there is a likeness to every city. Developers and architect work all around the country. Popular styles like glass facades are universal.

Generally I would have to agree with your comment about condo's across Canada looking the same. There are slight variations, Vancouver I think pays better attention to details then the rest but Toronto developers are starting to follow suit. You don't see the drastic changes in style like you do south of the border, NYC buildings look nothing like condo's you might find on the West coast of the US, or Miami vs Chicago. It probably has a bit to do with climate and demographics as well.

I like what I saw in Midtown Kitchener today:


then I went to Hamilton--I love you!--and snapped a few buildings on James St North under construction:
Acclamation


William Thomas Residences



101 Locke

Love this project on Brock Street
