Never seen a pic of Cityplace from inside the Skydome (errr...ummm Rogers). That looks amazing. It probably will look great at night time, especially when all 4 HV buildings are complete.

Also, no big news or render yet, but there are plans for a Shangri-La Hotel/Condo tower in Toronto.

The hall is going to be part of the oft-delayed Metropolis. They are taking around 70/80,000 square feet with a Yonge Street address. Just north of the Virgin Megastore and just south of HMV and Sam the Record Man... smart idea.

Anything that gets some new cement poured at that permanent lack of construction site is ok with me.

BTW, here's an "in progress" future render that I posted elsewhere from a unique vantagepoint looking SW from Carlton/College to the lake.

The actual pano is larger and lots of projects still have to be added (glimpse of Signature, 4 towers of Pinnacle etc.). The Bay Adelaide site incorporates the old design for the commercial tower (likely to be redesigned) a fictional residential tower (rumoured to be at least this tall).

Sapphire is shorter than advertised but who knows if it will survive anyway.

SCROLL>>>>>>>>>>>

Metropolis has halted construction for some time now but I hope they get back to building soon, this article says that it will open in summer 2007.


T.O. to house Cdn. music hall of fame

By ANDREA BAILLIE

TORONTO (CP) - Canadian music legends will soon be immortalized at a flashy music museum to be built in Toronto.

The city beat out nearby Hamilton to house the facility, the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) was poised to announce Tuesday. "When you think of a Canadian music hall of fame, it could generate a somewhat dusty image and that is very far from what we're shooting for. It's going to be very high-energy," Ross Reynolds, chairman of CARAS, said Monday.

"It will be much more interactive than the rock 'n' roll hall of fame (in Cleveland)."

The facility, expected to open in the summer of 2007, will be located at the bustling corner of Yonge and Dundas streets in the city's downtown core.

It is expected to span three floors of a 10-storey building already under construction that will also include a record store, stereo store, movie theatres and restaurants.

Peter Tillmann, president of Spinning Wheel Designs and project director for the Toronto bid, likened the complex to an "entertainment-style project similar to Times Square, New York."

"The outside of the building has been designed like a giant billboard," he said.

"If you can imagine a 10-storey-high billboard with, say, 18 different types of television screens and monitors and flashing lights and all kinds of bells and whistles."

Inside, the facility will take visitors "behind the scenes" of the music industry, Tillman said.

"There will be a lot of exhibits where people can interact and become their favourite musician so they can get into an editing suite, they can play an instrument, they can do some recording with their vocals, they can go in and see how instruments are made," he said.

For more than 25 years, CARAS has been inducting musicians and industry leaders into a hall of fame, but has not had a "bricks-mortar" base.

Five cities - Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Sault Ste. Marie - originally bid on the project. All other candidates eventually dropped out or were eliminated except for Hamilton and Toronto.

Reynolds said Toronto was chosen because it draws so many visitors.

"The overriding driving factor here was the location and the traffic and the dynamism of that particular location," he said.

Currently the hall exists in the virtual world only at www.juno-awards.ca. Each year new names are added at a ceremony folded into the televised Juno Awards.

The building is to be the Canadian equivalent to Cleveland's famous structure - designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei - only it won't be limited to those in the world of rock 'n' roll.

The project will cost about $40 million, with funds to come from corporate sponsors and the music industry as well as a mix of private and public sponsors.

I believe Metronome is still in the works. They need more funding though.

Don't be foolish. I'm all for developing highrises and expanding the skyline, but tearing down a charming, bustling retail corner to make way for an uninspiring condo is outrageous, and I'm glad the public outcry made the city think twice about approving the project. There are plenty of parking lots or empty spaces in similarly busy intersections that can benefit from this kind of development, but dammit Jim, I will not stand by as my precious crepe joint gets torn down!
