exactly! In fact there are many cities that the "boom" has simply passed them by altogether- healthy or unhealthy-wise.

Pictures of City Place from this past weekend.. it is going up fast but there are still a lot
of buildings to be announced:

















the area is well serviced by streetcars:

















What was once a huge brown field not more than 15 years ago will soon be a community
to thousands of new downtown residents!

Astounding! I hate to admit It about ANY city, but I'm SO envious of Toronto.

It is coming along better than most feared, I believe.. still could be more architectural variety, but at least they are trying harder now than at the beginning of the project when they were hoping just to do a carbon copy of the one in Vancouver. The really good thing about this project is that it brings THOUSANDS of new people to live downtown. Young people, too... and that is going to add a lot of life to King Street, and the downtown area in general.

More glassy than Vancouver actually but not as much retail Architecturally it's less po-mo and more modernist than Concord Pacific Place but lacks the podiums and street interest of Yaletown.

Just to refresh people's memories. This is an over view of what the whole development will look like:

At 45 acres and 7500units, the $1.5 billion Cityplace project is the largest residential development ever attempted in Toronto.

I remember my first day in TO looking through the windows of the hotel at the Skydome wondering whether those really are residential and not office buildings, I had never seen such nice apt blocks in my life, I really liked them, and I was thinking that if I could choose it'll be a really difficult choice between Kensington market and that place. Of course these are merely a visitor's impressions.

Oh and they really should get rid of the Gardiner Expressway at least in that part of the city.

You stayed at the Skydome? How cool.. I don't think I've known anyone who stayed there.
@isaidso, thanks for that key... I get those buildings mixed up all the time!

Yeah, and they have that bar at the hotel with great views towards the inside of the stadium, same goes for some of the hotel rooms, but not mine though. By the way what's the difference between a condo and apt block? I was looking at your pics blog and saw you saying about some 50s high end apt block being converted into a condo.
