Toronto Walk Part III

Recommended Posts

I apologize for the delay. My previous pic hoster is probably not going to be alive anymore, and is currently shut down. So I can't upload any more there, and it took me a while to find a new pic host. But, without further adieu, here are some more pictures from my walk in March. We left off at the ChumCity building on Queen St.

A cool sign on a Queen St. shop.

Pedestrian friendly.

Nice building at the corner of Queen and Spadina.

Looking west down Queen St, with a tangle of streetcar wires overhead.

Old bank building turned into a pub. They should really clean that grafitti up.

An alleyway.

If my memory serves me correctly we are now heading south on Spadina. Nice church, sorry my bro's digital camera didn't do what I wanted it to do.

CN Tower: Visible from almost anywhere downtown.

Tangle of streetcar lines at Bathurst and Spadina, with a condo building in the back.

Nice paint and window treatment on this building.

100_0460.jpg

Old building.

100_0461.jpg

Once again, nice restoration on this building.

The condominiums in the distance caught my eye as I passed the Mini car dealership. I like the use of colour.

100_0463.jpg

Seen enough of this bad boy yet? And more streetcar lines.

100_0464.jpg

New condos, called "Cityplace". Oh yeah, and streetcar lines. <_<

100_0465.jpg

Rated best new condominium building in the city by the Toronto Star's architecture critic. Called "Mozo". Sorry I didn't get a better shot of it.

This here is a building I really like... nice crisp lines, nice window treatments... mmm, tasty.

100_0467.jpg

Second City comedy theatre.

100_0469.jpg

Wayne Gretzky's restaraunt.

100_0470.jpg

I really like the colour of the glass with the black and white stripes... looks nice.

100_0471.jpg

Condo. Pretty generic if you ask me.

100_0472.jpg

Beautifully framed, thank you very much. I hope you're not tired of the concrete beast yet.

K, you know what, I think that's a lot of pictures in one thread... I might have got a little carried away. Man, this is fun. Hopefully I will post more within the next week, I still have at least 15 left. Sorry if it was too big a thread for you 56kers.

Great pics! I especially like the building in the fourth photo. They certainly don't build them like that anymore. :(
