Entertainment District— Theatre impresario David Mirvish and world-renowned architect Frank Gehry revealed their revised plans for a massive condo development on King Street. The duo have scaled back their design from three 80-storey towers to just two, one 92 storeys, the other 82 storeys. Unlike their original plan, the revamped design saves the Princess of Wales Theatre and other heritage buildings from demolition. Here's a look at the new renderings.

Auction Block— There are two Toronto properties going on auction at the end of June, a condo at the Four Seasons Private Residences and a mansion at Bayview and York Mills. The 3,422 square foot Four Seasons condo was originally listed for $10.95 million while the 13,600 square foot mansion at Bayview and York Mills had an asking price of (holy crap!) $23.9 million. Did we mention there's a signed Elton John piano in the living room?

Spadina and College— What's with that creepy old building at the roundabout at Spadina and College? The 138 year old building is currently under construction, on its way to becoming the University of Toronto's new John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture. Check out the renderings.

Moore Park— This home in Moore Park is listed for a mind-boggling $4.8 million. It's a very unique property, the former home of Canadian sculptors Frances Loring and Florence Wyle. We asked Curbed readers whether it was worth the $4.8 million asking price and 30 percent voted "not a chance."
