Wish CIBC Square were about 370m. It was one site I thought they'd go a lot taller.

Ever since last year's Serpentine Pavilion in London, I have been a fan of Bjarke Ingels Group. It's nice to see them make their mark in Toronto with a fine looking building.

It seems the concrete exterior in the original design has been changed for glass blocks.

Even though I like concrete, this could help it from being too much of a ripoff of Habitat 67, and give it more of its own identity. Glass block rarely seems to be used these days.

Did the Serpentine Pavilion turn out well?

Yes, it was received well. Everytime I pass by it was always full of people. The pavilion is only temporary, which is only open for a few months. Every year, a different architect is invited to create the pavilion, and it is open to the public during summer months. Frank Gehry designed the 2008 edition. Other famous architects who have designed the yearly Serpentine Pavilion include Zaha Hadid, Oscar Niemeyer, Libeskind (who designed the ROM modern facade), Ai Weiwei, Herzog de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, and Jean Nouvel.

BIG Serpentine Pavilion: the stacked blocks look very similar to this proposed building.

This will be a game changer. We're finally getting ambitious projects in Toronto.

I'm most excited for this and The Well. In particular, The Well is unprecedented.

They need to start building these projects before the next financial crisis causes these to be cancelled.

Gawd, we certainly don't want Eaton's College Park all over again.

Pre-sales of new low-rises in Toronto take steep dive
Oct. 26, 2017
THE GLOBE AND MAIL Excerpt

Preconstruction sales of new low-rise homes fell 73 per cent in the Toronto area in September compared with a year earlier as the home-building sector faces major headwinds from the region's housing-market downturn.

The Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) said builders in the Greater Toronto Area presold just 352 low-rise homes in September – including detached and semi-detached houses as well as townhomes – after selling 1,295 low-rise homes in September last year.

The market for new condominiums also faced a drop across the GTA in September, with builders selling 1,749 units, down 37 per cent from 2,782 units last September. Combined sales of high-rise and low-rise homes dropped 48 per cent to 2,101 homes from 4,077 last year.

"The launch frenzy that had characterized the market over the past year is over," said Patricia Arsenault, executive vice-president at Altus Group, which provides data on new home sales for BILD. "Buyers now feel that they can take a bit of time to shop around, without fear of losing out."
