While it is not possible to exactly re-create the perspective above with Google Streetview, here is the closest you can get to it.


Google Streetview


This angle along Adelaide Street shows more of the buildings that Peter Street Condominiums would replace, including 328 through 340 Adelaide Street West.

A few years ago there were more high rises under construction in Toronto than the United States. Development has picked up considerably south of the border, but things still seem to be humming along here. Toronto is still growing into its role as Canada's alpha city. We're 3 decades into the transformation and the city likely won't be done for another 2-3 decades.

Toronto's manhattanization won't stop any time soon, the underlying forces shaping it are getting stronger actually. Soon, Toronto will have the biggest concentration of tall buildings next to NYC in the western world.

Aside from population growth, I think one of those 'forces' might be the Greenbelt established in 2005. It is a permanently protected area of green space, farmland, watersheds and forests around the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton. Developers can no longer build new subdivisions around the city and probably turned into building highrises.

Developers absolutely can build more subdivisions, but its discouraged. Highrise housing now accounts for 65% of new home sales compared to 30% a decade ago.

Besides what's been mentioned, there are some less obvious things at play. For most of Canada's history, Montreal was our #1 city. It's where the establishment lived, it was our cultural centre, political centre, etc. Toronto moved passed Montreal in size around 1977 and has never looked back. The nation's momentum has re-focused more squarely on Toronto and the city is still benefiting tremendously from its newfound status within Canada. Toronto started the process 30+ years ago transforming from a big industrial city to a sophisticated global centre. This was never going to happen overnight. These things take generations to accomplish.

A second factor is the cultural shift occurring in most Canadian cities where people have a renewed interest in downtown living. We still see growth in suburbia, but far more of the growth is occurring in the downtown core. Urban planning policies now encourage higher density, intensification, transit, etc. Couple this with the Green Belt in Toronto/other factors touched upon and the city is experiencing a historic boom that started around 2006 and shows no signs of letting up.

Migration and intensification are the biggest forces, the latter encourage by the Places to Grow legislation and the Green Belt Act whereas migration is fed by immigration internal migration to Toronto of young people within Canada and migration to Toronto from other parts of Ontario. The urban lifestyle is being perceived as positive again, especially now that cities have been cleaned up, parks and squares enhanced and the availability of transit. Personally transit in Toronto could be much better, but what I really love about Toronto is the diversity, the range of restaurants, museums, clubs, things to do and people to meet and the overall atmosphere of tolerance. Tolerance I would name the other big force making Toronto so attractive the world over.

Say goodbye to Clubland

http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/arti...-clubland?bn=1



...A sign reading “Development Proposal” sits in the front window of 117 Peter St. — the corner of Peter and Richmond Sts.

The proposal, currently being fine-tuned and set to go in front of Community Council on Tuesday, will turn the
warehouse into a condo that would house office space on the main floor. A small public plaza would sit out front.


City Councillor Adam Vaughan said the project will rehabilitate the north and south side of Richmond.

It also represents another nail in the coffin for clubland as we know it.

And it is another telltale sign of a downtown neighbourhood reinventing itself...
