About This Blog

This blog has been my daily practice since August 2013. Rated by the Guardian Cities UK as one of the best city blogs in the world, it generally covers everything from architecture and planning to real estate and technology. Subscribers are often architects, city planners, real estate professionals, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and other urbanists. The posts are emailed out every morning at 6AM Toronto time and are usually short and digestible (<500 words). There’s also an option for a weekly subscription if every day is too much for your inbox. While this is a personal blog, my objective is to promote the building of beautiful, sustainable, and globally competitive cities. If this resonates with you, consider subscribing.
