agree to disagree but to me TeaHouse is one of the top 5 nicest projects under-construction currently.

That CIBC building is beautiful. When completed and the sun hitting all those angles at different times of the day. Wow

Yup sometimes great cladding usurps wacky design.

And another taller one will rise just north.

Photogs are already burning thro their digital hard drives. Fun to watch.

The latest round of proposals are noticeably better than what we saw even 5 years ago. Hopefully when we see these nicer buildings rise those other ones will become background. I suspect they will. Eagerly awaiting The One, Mirvish-Gehry twins, the CIBC north tower, and Union Park. There are a whole slew of shorter proposals/buildings under construction coming down the pipe too.

Think this supertall "half pencil" proposal from a month or so ago was not posted yet.

1200 Bay | 326.5m | 87s | ProWinko | Herzog & de Meuron

Render from UrbanToronto



Render from UrbanToronto


Foreshadowing the "half pencil"?: 1200 Bay got me to thinking about Pei's 1972 CommerceCourtWest... remember reading about the international attention the tower received from
architects and engineers (lots of it related to height-width ratios).

Though down right chubby compared to 1200 Bay, think maybe it deserves some props foreshadowing extreme height/width ratios nearly a half century ago.

MIDRISE MAYHEM
Shot by RAZZ at UrbanToronto.

I love the mid-rise clutter east of the core (home to St. James Cathedral, St. Lawrence Market etc.). This photo is but a slice of the facelift underway.

Dozens of new builds, many which incorporate logical elements of yellow, orange, red (even black) brick cladding. Lots of it is brick veneer but lots of it “actual bricks”… who knew that humanoid bricklayers still exist.



Black brick veneer on the 158 Front East podium you see u/c in the pic above.

Featuring some of the taller projects posted above - a partial make-over of a future render I did with Koops years ago. Just Bloor/Yorkville south to the waterfront (posted in City Discussions).
