Mirvish + Gehry (previous and revised massing models) along side 212 King West.

Prolific render magician Steve Velasco has been busy the last few days.

An explosion of height west of the financial core. In addition to a slew of 200m+ proposed and u/c projects, 3 proposed developments include a super-tall: M + G and 212 King W,
and Union Park on Front Street W (right of the CN Tower). The tallest building in the country for more than 4 decades, BMO (left side) stuck at 298m, can only watch and bemoan
the lousy “nice try” super-tall plastic plaque it received from the CTBUH. Even super-tall SkyTower, on the waterfront to the east, render-bombs poor BMO.


Looking south east to King Street.

Plan to rebuild Yonge Street with wider sidewalks, fewer lanes goes to Toronto Council
Toronto Star article: https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/202...y-council.html
“...proposal that would make dramatic changes to Yonge, at the same time as Toronto replaces 140-year-old water and sewer infrastructure underneath the street. Once reconstructed, Yonge Street would see dramatically wider sidewalks and the street itself reduced to just two lanes. As well, portions of Yonge would be closed to through traffic during the day in order to prioritize pedestrians and cycling.”
Along with Cadillac Fairview, 250 retailers and tenants are objecting to the reduction of traffic lanes between Dundas and Queen Street East. “the lane reductions would make loading and onloading for curbside pickup impossible and that restrictions on deliveries would be “catastrophic for businesses.”

The jigsaw puzzle drivers will have to navigate, depending on the time of day (when the pedestrian priority portions are closed to traffic).

The Well - 174m - 46s - RioCan - Hariri Pontarini - u/c

Nice comparison angles between the photo posted by Gabriel Hurl and the HPA rendering. The middle residential tower (2nd from the left in the photo) appears to be starting to climb above its podium.

Vision glass with bronze horizontal louvres, plus copper vertical fins sounds tasty.

The only colour renderings released (posted earlier) are for the lower floors and heritage building.

West Don Lands: Block 3, 4 & 7 - 49m - 13s - Dream - COBE Architects - pre-construction

On-site notification of the large parking lot closure on January 15th for the development. Betting the lock-down, which includes below-grade construction), will delay any site-prep (except perhaps surface work).
