The podium is fabulous. Nothing flashy about it either.

201 Church Street, CentreCourt's next foreign-investor bought airbnb flophouse, to be sold as MODE Condos. Launches soon.

Our Lady of Sorrows RC church Bloor Street West of Royal York Road -- redevelopment of the western part of the property including the parking lot/Running Room building into a retirement residence. I hope the church isn't redeveloped--adds character to the strip.

^ Maybe not revolutionary, but still a nice, solid addition to the skyline.

Northam Realty wants to build a 60 storey residential tower on top of 483 Bay Street (Bell Trinity Square) -- another dull IBI Group effort.

DREAM Office REIT is now following Northam's lead: they want to add residential towers on top of all their older office blocks.

Remember when realtors said we were running out of land?

On that topic: Oxford is planning 5000 residential units at Upper Canada Mall Newmarket. RioCan wants to build 5000 units at Shoppers World Brampton: https://urbantoronto.ca/news/2019/10...world-brampton

I'm waiting for a Conestoga Mall announcement.

Jasper House had a much nicer podium and anyways, it was by aA not Quadrangle.

If you've got seriously bad taste and want to drop $2-6 million on a G+C condo, check out Forest Hill Private Residences: http://foresthillresidences.com/img/bg_home.png

Or if you're not as well off but still have bad taste, 1440 Lawrence Avenue West by G+C and Barney River Investments might suit you better:

Thats funny I was going to say the podium of the Toronto proposal was better. Im not a fan of single story podiums.

Yes I prefer more multi-level podiums as well. The Toronto proposal certainly isn't novel but a decent looking building.

I never reference height of anything but rather design quality/detailing. Jasper House is more sophisticated.

So square phillios will be top dog in the city in terms of roof height from sea level.

Not very innovative in terms of architecture, but I believe it could turn out nice if the materials are of high quality.

No renderings yet, but it looks as if Metro-Van might soon be reaching a new level. In Burnaby again of course:

Based on the preliminary design details, including towers up to 82-storeys in height outlined in the preliminary rezoning application, the towers may become the tallest in B.C..

Preliminary details for the proposed project include:
  • Three residential towers (82-storeys, 67-storeys & 62-storeys);
  • up to 1.9 Million SF of market residential (11.91 FAR);
  • 20% rental housing (2.16 FAR);
  • estimated 430,000 SF of office, retail & hotel uses;
  • relocation of Gatineau Place to align with the new north-south Grand Promenade road, as
  • new covered transit plaza adjacent to the SkyTrain station and bus loop;
  • a new pedestrian bridge over Austin Road to connect the covered transit plaza and subject site with the Lougheed Mall site to the north.
