OK. So I was looing in CondoGuide yesterday and I saw about 50 projects not listed here, that are already in pre-sales. I don't have a webpage, so I can't post photo's but this column needs to be updated big-time?? Any volunteers?

With Photobucket, in the upload part, in the line under the blue box of "images from my pc", there should be a small size options link.. you can enlarge the maximum size of postings. However, I paid the $25 annual fee so maybe that is just a member option. It is well worth the $25 annual fee as you get huge bandwidth and can bulk upload which saves kabillions of hours. I would never in a million years go back to photoshack.

Thank-you, that was the issue. Now I feel like posting all kinds if scrollable images.

I have a free membership at Photobucket. I have about 220 pictures stored there with the bulk being 640x480. I think that is only about 3% of my bandwidth, so I'm good for now.

With the construction of the Four Seasons hotel... is it going to replace on current one on Avenue Road or will Toronto have two Four Seasons hotels?

It remains to be seen what Four Seasons will do with their older property.

So what's going on with Aura and 1 Bloor? When will they start Construction!!

I still can't believe the penthouse for 1 Bloor went for $25 million, pretty cool!
And how tall is Aura now ?

I believe 1 Bloor will be the first to begin construction, in the spring. Whether or not it'll end up being shorter than or taller than 278 metres tall still remains a mystery.

I believe it is still a hole in the ground. Perhaps they have erected the crane already but I'm not sure.

So many great projects in Toronto. I would really love to live there someday! Open minded people, busy urban atmosphere, and a population that doesn't care what language someone speaks or where they come from.

A nice perspective of 5 new towers currently or soon to be U/C in the Bloor/Yonge area. The second tower on the left that is shaped like an arrow head should be omitted. The 2 Four Seasons Hotel towers are the same except the shorter was reduced in height.
