About This Blog

I have been writing this blog every day since August 2013. It is 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. But every now and then I’ll slip in something different.

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).

This my personal blog. But at the same time, I hope to promote the building of beautiful, sustainable, and globally competitive cities.

If that resonates with you, consider subscribing.
