PRES I DE N T ' S L E T T E R Welcome to the Spring edition of The Collection. I’m sure we are all eager to embrace the warmer weather, taste the first flavours of spring produce, enjoy the return of the Blue Jays, and cheer what we hope will be a long playoff run for the Leafs. Of course, it’s now been a full 12 months of the Covid-era in North America. The good news is that despite the lockdowns and rising case counts, we’re seeing more vaccines distributed on a daily basis. The list of those eligible for a first dose continues to grow, and we’re hopeful that before summer’s end, most Canadians will have received a shot. The other news making headlines has been the resilience of the Canadian real estate market. Demand for ownership is at an all-time high, which is keeping the supply extremely tight. On New Year’s Day, there were fewer than 100,000 homes available for sale in the entire country, the lowest number on record. Closer to home, the GTA has just reached a ninth consecutive month of record unit sales.

With limited supply and homes selling as fast as they come to market, I can’t stress enough the value of an experienced and educated sales professional. Your realtor is the front line to success. The planning and preparation they provide will set you up for a desirable outcome. Turning to The Collection, there is so much to explore. Buck Martinez, the voice of the Toronto Blue Jays, is here to preview this year’s team. Architect Gianpiero Pugliese offers a fascinating take on his approach to architecture. Food writer Alexandra Daum has great tips to bring some spring to your meals. We’re also examining the city’s parks and laneways so everyone can enjoy these under-utilized community assets. Plus, there’s all the real estate news and property listings that you’d expect from Harvey Kalles Real Estate. We hope you enjoy the latest edition of The Collection. More importantly, we wish you and your family a safe and healthy season, and we look forward to seeing you again in the summer.

HUMAN ARCHITECTURE By Gianpiero Pugliese | Principal, Audax Architecture

8 | the COLLECTION
The legendary Harvard University debate in November 1982 between Christopher Alexander and Peter Eisenman summed up the prevailing sentiment on two sides of the ideological spectrum of architecture. On one side, Alexander, a proponent of design that respects tradition and history, argued for an approach to architecture that looks at patterns and typologies developed over centuries. He believed that the architect's role is to bring harmony and balance to the built environment and that architecture should be beautiful. On the other side, Eisenman argued that beauty should not be the goal, but rather that architecture should reflect the world's reality. If that world is ugly and tortured, then our architecture should reflect this. Eisenman was the darling of the elite class of intellectuals. He exemplified an ideology that would end up pervading most architecture academic programs in the West. In fact, beauty was somewhat of a taboo word during university. It could never be used as the rationale for the design decisions you made. Instead, if your
project had 'keywords' related to some social justice cause or anti-capitalistic rhetoric, then it really didn't matter how ugly the design was. Beauty was out, and theory was in. The most famous moment of that debate came when Alexander challenged Eisenman on the idea of harmony in architecture. Eisenman defended the idea that an architect might intentionally design a building that is in disharmony or even incongruent (academic-speak for “ugly”). Eisenman was defending many of the prevailing designs of the time that the general public found ugly. In response, Alexander famously stated to the audience, “I find that incomprehensible. I find it very irresponsible. I find it nutty. I feel sorry for the man. I also feel incredibly angry because he is f**king up the world.” He later went on to say, “But the fact is that people who believe as you do are really f**king up the whole profession of architecture right now by propagating these beliefs. Excuse me, I'm sorry, but I feel very, very strongly about this. It's all very well to say: "Look, harmony here, disharmony there, harmony here — it's all fine.” But the fact is that we as architects are entrusted with the creation of that harmony in the world."
SPRING 2021 | 9
10 | the COLLECTION
After nearly 40 years, Alexander has fallen into relative obscurity, while Eisenman has entered the ivory tower of the club of global Starchitects. Over this period, a whole generation of young architects have lost touch with the historical tradition of architecture, to the point where drawing by hand has become a rare talent. I don't believe that life is ugly. Yes, it can be ugly at times, and we have lots of ugly moments in history, but the spirit of the human race is positive. When I think about architecture, I believe it should uplift and inspire, and historically, that’s what it did. It should aspire to perfect beauty and harmony, and to always pursue this unattainable state of being. Over the course of my career, I have had to unlearn the lessons that I was taught during my academic experience. Thankfully, I was exposed to Alexander's wisdom, and that gave me a window into how to approach design. This approach has evolved over the years into what I now call “human architecture.”
As part of my studio’s culture, Audax has researched and created this unique design philosophy which provides a robust foundation for our design work. The approach incorporates the best elements of traditional architecture and marries them with a modern aesthetic. Human architecture stems from the belief that many of the best aspects of traditional architecture were lost during the modern period, and from the recognition that modern design is a popular aesthetic within our culture today. By looking at the past through the lens of Modernism, Audax can bring back the tactile and human-scaled elements that were lost during that period. Our most recent completed project called Villa Cortile is showcased in this article and exemplifies the principles of “human achitecture.” The inspiration for this design was based on my studies in Venice, Italy, where I would spend my days walking through and loitering in the many courtyards surrounded by a collection of buildings.
SPRING 2021 | 11
In these courtyards, you would have archways that connect different spaces and beautiful balconies overlooking the activities below. Often these spaces were punctuated by a single tree which added a soft element to the space. The design of Villa Cortile is also based on a collection of individual buildings, some in stone and some in brick. The dining room pavilion facing the street is slightly lower than the rest of the house, allowing natural light to enter the courtyard. This element is finished with a standing seam zinc roof, while the upper roofs are rendered in slate. The main entry to the home is through the courtyard, creating a sense of arrival and giving the visitor a completely unique experience to what most houses offer. The courtyard is the heart of the home, and the principal rooms all face onto this space. Given the layout, these rooms benefit from receiving natural light from two sides. For this project, we completed both the architecture and interior design. This is based on a historical 12 | the COLLECTION
principle where the design of the interior was always part of the design of the building. The ceiling of the dining room took inspiration from the beautiful plaster work of the Villa Necchi in Milan. The homeowners, who are of Italian descent, also understood the beauty behind the Minotti furniture which finished off the interior. By looking to the past for guidance, while pursuing a modern aesthetic, the design of Villa Cortile has a familiarity and warmth, but is still able to surprise and delight. My hope is that the next generation of architects take a moment to reflect on how their work sits within a historical context. We should look both at the past and into the future, and remember that we are simply part of a continuum of the human experience. Gianpiero Pugliese is Founding Principal of Audax. His current work explores the relationship between traditional design principles and the modern aesthetic. For more information, visit www.audax.ca

CITY PARKS MAKING THE MOST OF OUR PUBLIC SPACE BY JAKE TOBIN GARRETT, PARK PEOPLE Last year was tough but it was also illuminating. We discovered how resilient our communities are and the role that public parks play by providing a place for people to stay active, de-stress, and connect (safely). We also learned that we have work to do to ensure equitable access to parks and inclusive policies that help everyone feel welcome. With that in mind, here are six things we want to see in city parks in 2021.
LEADING WITH EQUITY
If 2020 did anything, it exposed existing inequities in our cities. We often speak about parks as “for everyone,” but this obscures the racism, inequitable enforcement, historic underinvestment, unequal access to amenities, and social judgement that excludes many from enjoying these spaces.
In 2021, we need less talk about “returning to normal” and have more action around systemic discrimination, the displacement of the homeless, and anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism in our park systems, policies, and organizations. Let’s look at who is and who is not in decision-making circles, and ensure that community engagement and consultation exercises are additive, not extractive.

16 | the COLLECTION
IMPROVING LOCAL PARKS
We’ve been told to stay home to stay safe. This heightens the importance of neighbourhood parks as places of respite. But parks are not distributed equally, and this impacts people’s mental and physical health. Park People's research shows that Canadians who didn’t have a park within a fiveminute walk were five times more likely not to have visited a park between March and June. To derive benefit from parks, you need to have one nearby. In 2021, we foresee a renewed focus on the local park. Access to quality, nearby green spaces will be on the agenda, and we hope to see more emphasis on basic amenities like washrooms, drinking fountains, shade structures, and plentiful seating. Increased maintenance will be key, but we can go further. Integrating urban agriculture and local economic development, such as markets for locally produced goods and food, will help parks become resilient hubs.

GROWING ACCESS TO NEARBY NATURE
As stress levels rocketed and mental health declined, many spent more time outdoors as a way to re-centre themselves, taking solace in nature. One Park People's survey found that 80 percent of Canadians said parks became more important to their mental health. The connection between wellbeing and time spent in nature has long been established in science. In 2021, we hope to see more focus on neighbourhood greening projects that insert naturalized gardens into the places where we live our everyday lives: our streets, yards, parks, laneways, and schools. Let’s build on the awareness of the connection between mental health and nature through new programs and stewardship opportunities.

EXPANDING PARKS BEYOND THEIR BOUNDARIES
Responding to the need for more space for physical distancing, many cities quickly “found” acres of new open spaces in roadways and other public spaces to open up to people. This created more space for cycling, running, rolling, and walking. In 2021, let’s continue creative rethinking about the space in our cities to be more people-friendly, but expand it so more neighbourhoods can benefit from slower streets, expanded public spaces, and safer walking and cycling connections.
SUPPORTING COMMUNITY-BASED PROGRAMMING
Many grassroots park groups struggled with the impacts of COVID-19 restrictions on park amenities and the need to keep track of fluctuating guidelines on safe gatherings. Despite this, Park People's research shows over 40 percent of park groups said they had provided support to those in need during the pandemic. Some even pivoted to activities like sewing masks. As we start the process of recovery, we hope to see greater support for the value that park programming 18 | the COLLECTION
provides. The top two areas park groups will need help with are funding and re-engaging community members. City staff can work with communities and partner organizations to provide funding and to institute policies like simplified permits that allow park groups to do more with less paperwork and fees.
Canada is a winter nation. People continued to turn to parks and trails during the season to keep active and lessen the winter blues. Some Canadian cities offer winter activities in parks better than others, but in many, the infrastructure and maintenance practices don’t reflect the winter reality. This year, let’s keep washroom access open, and clear snow and ice for safe use. And to keep people connected and active, we want to see more support for local winter programming. It doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.
Park People supports and mobilizes people to activate the power of parks in cities across Canada. For more info, visit parkpeople.ca

MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, our lives, news
THROUGH the LENS The 25th Annual Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival By Lousie Nunn
22 | the COLLECTION
and events are filtered through the lens of images. In 2015, the world was rocked by the heartbreaking picture of a little boy, Alan Kurdi, washed up on a beach. His photograph woke up many to the devastation of the Syrian refugee crisis. As the world reflects on 2020, images of ICU beds, plastic barriers, and protests will sum up a year of pandemic and civil unrest.
Camera lenses have the power to burn into memory the social issues and current events of our time, and photography has become the art form that moves as fast as the digital world, accessible to everyone with a phone. “We communicate with images more than ever right now,” says Darcy Killeen, Executive Director for the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography festival. “Just think of the riots on Capitol Hill. Documentation of that was incredible. People are communicating what's happening, and it's communicated to the public almost live. It really is amazing. And our artists are doing the same thing. They're dealing with very important issues and putting them at the forefront with the use of photography.”
Take Esmaa Mohamoud’s The Brotherhood FUBU (For Us, By Us), one of the many public installations that will headline CONTACT’s 25th anniversary festival in May. In a large-scale outdoor installation that presents two black men as the subjects in two separate pieces, Mohamoud, an African-Canadian artist based in Toronto, confronts her audience with questions on race and gender. Part one, a giant 145foot photographic mural, depicts two black men staring straight out at the viewer. Their posture and sparse accessories – simple silver bracelets and a du-rag draped over one shoulder – arrests the passersby with the vulnerable side of these men. Mohamoud complicates the mainstream depiction of black men with this tender and intimate alternative – made even more poignant and surprising by its placement at the Toronto waterfront, alongside a life-sized cast-bronze sculpture of these same men.
People strolling along the Toronto waterfront will see Mohamoud’s mural and her sculpture, and instantly be brought into a conversation that has been ongoing in Toronto and around the world. Engaging the city has always been a central purpose of the festival’s Public Installations program, which began in 2003. “Our big focus is on trying to present very significant, large-scale, outdoor public art installations…this year, we’re planning 20 public installations” says Darcy Killeen. The hope for The Brotherhood is that non-art audiences will pass the black men represented in the photo mural, and consider Toronto’s own track record of policing, or take a second look at the fragility depicted in the sculpture and reconsider their own prejudice. “With [an installation] that size, you know, you can't walk by and not experience it; you will be engaged with it no matter what.”

But in CONTACT, the size of a public work won’t be the only thing to turn the heads of artists and pedestrians alike. Equally important is the location. CONTACT is the festival where local and international, renowned and up-and-coming photographers take over billboards, subway stations, and some of the city’s top art institutions. Thirza Schaap’s Plastic Ocean will be displayed at Toronto’s Dupont subway station. Her eerily beautiful pastel seascapes – created out of used consumer products and photographed against a backdrop of sand and sea – will draw the eyes of masked subway goers as they wait idly for their train. In doing so, the Dutch artist based in Cape Town hopes to connect Toronto’s subway riders to a global conversation about climate change. One of several international talents participating in CONTACT’s month-long festival, Thirza will position her series alongside the train platform – a space 24 | the COLLECTION

typically reserved to advertise consumer products. Each photograph is made entirely from trash that Thirza collected from walks near the ocean. CONTACT expects this will begin a conversation about products and their life cycle. According to Killeen, CONTACT hopes that these site-specific exhibits around the city will “startle viewers into a new consideration of their environment,” and like Thirza’s subway-based Plastic Ocean, the exhibition Force Field at Fort York should do just that. Besides news images of protests calling for racial justice and coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a lot of coverage in Canadian media and art around Indigenous activism. The recent land disputes over the natural gas pipeline have sparked a countrywide
conversation on the fraught history of CanadaIndigenous relations. Force Field, curated by Indigenous-settler artist Logan MacDonald, will take over the whole of the Fort York historic site with a collection of the work of Indigenous, queer and disabled creators from the community. It will be a way for the curator, the artists and the public to reflect on what version of history our historic sites preserve, and how marginalized and BIPOC artists might join the dialogue. Through its 2021 Year of Public Art Initiative, ArtworxTO, the city is taking a second look at public spaces of all kinds and funding public art projects in the midst of a pandemic that has hit the creative world hard. BIPOC artists like Esmaa Mohamoud,

SPRING 2021 | 25
Greg Staats, Skawennati, Frida Orupabo and Logan MacDonald go further in the conversation of public space: their art asks who exactly is comfortable in these spaces and wonders how marginalized groups can reclaim these spaces or lands. CONTACT’s artists answer through their photography.

“We are here to celebrate the art form of photography” Darcy explains, “that is our core mission and vision. And we do that by supporting Canadian artists and building an international platform for them.” As one of the world’s top photography festivals, CONTACT draws the highest photography talent from around the world, and partners with top art institutions in Toronto, like the AGO and Ryerson University. But it is the voices of all artists, both established and emerging, that CONTACT is concerned with. Darcy explains, “the majority of festivals in the world only deal with those top two tiers, and there's no real place for the very young or emerging. But with CONTACT, many photographers get their first exhibition. So, if you looked at CONTACT’s artist index, you would have the biggest names in photography, and you would have a first-time photographer, or a guy showing his travel pictures, or somebody showing baby pictures – it could be anything. That's really a distinguishing point of CONTACT.” As the world waits for the distribution of the vaccine to turn public gatherings and crowded art fests back to normal, Toronto needs a festival that recognizes the evolving ways we make contact with one another and express ourselves. This spring, CONTACT and its artists will continue to capture the issues that connect us through the lens…even if we’ll be experiencing them a little differently. The 25th annual festival will be celebrated in COVID-safe outdoor, indoor, and virtual spaces.

DURING THE PANDEMIC By Mark Weisleder The Covid-19 Pandemic has impacted each of us in many ways. As it relates to real estate law, the rights of landlords and tenants under the Residential Tenancy Act of Ontario (the “Act”) have been turned upside down. If you are in a landlord tenant relationship, here are answers to some frequently asked questions: Q: Is there a new Ontario Government Lease? A: Yes, it’s available online, and it must be used for any lease entered into on or after March 1, 2021. Q: What happens if you do not use the new government lease? A: If you don’t use the government lease, your tenant may be able to cancel the lease during the term by first requesting the government lease and then giving 60 days’ notice. Q: Can a tenant refuse to pay rent, knowing that they cannot be evicted? A: While a tenant cannot be evicted during the crisis, there was no mention that rent would be forgiven. Rents are still owed, and proceedings could be brought at this time to collect the money or to evict the tenant for non-payment. In order for an eviction to be completed, several steps have to be taken. An initial notice must be served on the tenant. If rent is not paid, then a hearing must be applied for at the Board to obtain an eviction order. The eviction order must then be taken to the Sheriff of the county, who is the only one who can enforce an eviction.
28 | the COLLECTION
Of course, even with a court order, the Sheriff will not enforce it during the pandemic. Once lockdown ends, you should be able to enforce eviction. Q: Can a tenant refuse to show their home to a potential buyer? A: The answer is likely yes. Even though the Act permits a landlord to show with 24 hours written notice, that is likely not the case during this crisis. If a tenant does not agree and is concerned for their safety, they can deny any showing. The only way to show a home is if the tenant agrees. And, even if the tenant is being unreasonable, it will take months to obtain an eviction over their refusal. Q: Can I close my deal now if the tenant refuses to leave? A: I have had many sellers in this predicament, and I explain two choices. They can make a deal with the tenant, offering an incentive to move now if the tenant is agreeable. Or, they can offer the buyer a discount to close the deal with the tenant, with the understanding that the buyer will continue the eviction proceedings once the Board enforces it. Remember, no matter what you offer, the tenant can refuse to accept. My advice is to help the tenant find a place to move and pay an incentive to ensure the tenant comes out in a similar or better position. Then, have the tenant sign the Form N11 where they agree to leave in exchange for compensation. Q: What is the main lesson to remember for landlords and tenants? A: We are all in this together. Staying healthy and safe should be our main focus. Landlords and tenants should treat each other with respect, patience and understanding during this very difficult time.

SMALL BUILDING WITH BIG VISION COMES TO NIAGARA Though widely known for its tourist attractions, if one developer has his way, Niagara Falls will soon be home to another landmark. The brainchild of Dr. Kamal Mattar, MAKAN Condos & Lofts is coming to market this spring, and looks to set new standards for ecologically responsible architecture, while fundamentally altering how condo owners experience community.
I also want to illustrate how smart design can combat the epidemic of human loneliness, that’s increasingly common in modern society. We’ve become increasingly wired to networks and far less connected to people.” The resulting vision is an eight-unit, boutique condo that seamlessly blends modern amenities, environmentally responsible architecture, and the social benefits of communal living.
“As a father, I’m deeply concerned about the planet, and I want to demonstrate the role architecture and Here are six unique ideas that make MAKAN Condos construction must play in addressing climate change,” & Lofts one of the most progressive projects in says Mattar. “Beyond LEED or net-zero certifications, Southern Ontario.

Solar power is an established source of clean sustainable energy, and solar panels are the most efficient, durable technology on the market, with a 40-year life expectancy. MAKAN will include up to 4,000 sf of solar panels, providing an 86,400 kWh photovoltaic solar array. That’s equivalent to the energy consumption of eight homes, with integrated solar-powered electric vehicle charging. Net metering ensures owners are credited for any surplus electricity produced during the day, and battery storage protects the homes in case of power outage.
Water utility rates are the fastest increasing utility cost in Ontario, and protecting clean fresh water is a priority. To help reduce consumption, the developer has incorporated rooftop rainwater harvesting, filtration and storage. By repurposing rainwater for the toilets and irrigation, the site will conserve 450,000 litres annually. Natural storm water management is achieved by conserving the green space, while permeable pavers on driveways and walkways encourage natural soil drainage.

GEOTHERMAL HEATING AND COOLING
Heating and cooling of homes and offices accounts for 39% of all carbon emissions. This can be addressed by switching to geothermal exchange heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. As a bonus, the average homeowner saves $3,000 per year in operating costs. The site will use super high efficiency heat/cooling pumps with comfortable radiant floor heating throughout. SPRING 2021 | 33
LOCATION AND ORIENTATION
Lightly coloured finishes function as solarreflectors, minimizing thermal heat gain in the summer (the heat island effect). In the winter, passive solar heating is enabled by large windows that permit the low winter sun to flow into the interior, providing natural light and warmth. The thermal mass of the floors will store heat during the day and release it in the evening. The energy generated inside is conserved through sealed and continuous insulation, airtightness and ventilation with energy recovery.
Engineered cantilevered sunshades allow natural daylight into the building, while limiting solar heat gain. They also reduce the need for air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter.
By integrating the parking underground, the building is elevated 10 feet above street level. Not only will this optimize the view and add privacy, it creates natural illumination and ventilation. The outdoor space is streamlined to the rooftop terrace for everyone to enjoy the amenities and panoramic views of the Niagara Escarpment. The highlight of the 5,000 sq ft space is the 50 foot pool, overlooking the magnificent Niagara Gorge. Should owners choose to leave the privacy of their home and join into a community setting, they simply make their way up to the rooftop to enjoy the pool, the luxurious outdoor furniture, and the state-of-theart barbecues. “This shared space creates the opportunity to socialize and encourage community,” says, Mattar. “You can have coffee in the morning or enjoy a drink at night on the terrace. And, depending on your mood, be alone, with friends or neighbours.”

BY JEREMY FINKELSTEIN Few names are as closely tied to Toronto baseball as Buck Martinez. With 20 seasons in the Majors, he would spend six as a Blue Jay, being forever tied to one of the wildest plays in MLB history. Following retirement, Buck began a successful career as a broadcaster that included an Emmy for his coverage of Cal Ripken’s 2131st consecutive game. He managed the Jays in 2001 and 2002 before returning to the booth. The Blue Jays are now set to build on a successful 2020 campaign, but the challenges remain. They are still a team without a permanent home, there have been some early injuries including the loss of Kirby Yates for the season, and the AL East remains as tough as ever. We caught up with the colourful commentator to discuss free agency, the rotation, and just how far this team can go. 38 | the COLLECTION
H BU C K M A RT
Z E IN
The Collection: How has Covid-19 changed the way you broadcast a baseball game? Buck Martinez: It's changed the world for everyone, and it certainly has impacted the way we broadcast. Last year, Dan Shulman and I did all 60 games at Sportsnet Studios in Toronto. We had the technology available to see the field, wherever the Blue Jays were playing, so that actually worked well. The most important thing that impacts my broadcasting is the inability to chat with the players and coaches on a regular basis. My time before the game is most important down on the field at the batting cage, talking to both the Blue Jays and their opponents. That's where I get most of my information, so that's been a challenge. TC: What's your assessment of this year’s team? BM: I think they're going to be pretty good. They got to the playoffs last year in the shortened season…then there’s the addition of George Springer and Marcus Semien. They traded for Steven Matz, but they still have a ways to go. They were just a couple of games over .500 last year, and the New York Yankees are always going to be the New York Yankees. Tampa Bay lost a couple of key players in Blake Snell and Charlie Morton, [but] they have a way of figuring things out and I think they'll be formidable. And everybody wants to write off the Boston Red Sox, but Alex Cora's back
after a year suspension, and I think they're going to be very competitive. So once again, it looks like a very challenging division. TC: What are you looking for when determining how competitive a team can be? BM: I look for how motivated they are as a team. Not so much how the individuals are doing, but are the players sacrificing themselves for the betterment of the team. That's when you have a championship caliber ball club. I think the Jays have a foundation because several of their players are homegrown, and those young players won in the minor leagues, so they appreciate what it means to win as a team. I think that's where their focus is. They want to be a winning ball club. When you ask Cavan Biggio or Bo Bichette or Vlady Guerrero, what do you want to accomplish…they want to win a World Series and bring that title back to Canada. TC: Are you seeing any maturity in their play that you might attribute to last year’s playoff experience? BM: Absolutely. That's a great point. They had a disappointing round, they lost both games of the Wild Card series to Tampa Bay. Bo Bichette was very disappointed. He had a rough game two, committing a couple of errors in the first, and I think that served as motivation for him to focus in the offseason. He's SPRING 2021 | 39
in remarkable shape, he's really focused on playing better in the field. And I see it with Vlady, as well. He's a fun-loving kid, he just turned 22, but this season I sense more of a professional approach, more focus in batting practice. And Cavan Biggio, the same. So, they accomplished a lot by getting there for the first time as a group, but they were all disappointed in the way it finished. TC: What do you think about Charlie Montoyo as the team's manager? BM: Well, Charlie Montoyo has managed for 18 years in the minor leagues, and he's always been involved in player development. In this day and age, you're continuing to develop players even though they're big-
league players. There's a lot of finishing work done in the major leagues. And [he’s] a terrific communicator. He allows the players to be themselves, while at the same time, he lets them know what he expects. He goes around to the individual, he’ll tell them when they’re playing, where they’re playing, what position, where they’re batting, and he'll do that a day or two ahead of time. There are no surprises when the kids come to the ballpark. Charlie has set them up for success. He's a perfect manager for this young team. TC: Is Toronto becoming a desirable destination for top talent? BM: It's getting close, that's for sure. In the late 80s and early 90s, Toronto was truly a destination for free

agents, and that was played out with Jack Morris, Dave Stewart, Dave Winfield, Paul Molitor. All of those star players ended up playing in Toronto because it was the place to play. Players who have played in Toronto understand that when the Blue Jays are good, the whole country is behind you. I think the goal of this organization is to get back to that status, be a contending team, year-in-year-out, and once Covid is behind us, fill Rogers Centre with the best fans in baseball. TC: What effect do you think Springer and Semien will have on a young team? BM: Well, [they] kind of validate what the Blue Jays are trying to accomplish. I heard it several times last year from the young players…they kind of said, “Hey, we need a grown up in the locker room. We need somebody that has been there before to help us.” I think Springer and Semien are the perfect people for that. They’re good players. They have both enjoyed success on the field, they've played in the playoffs, and they're both great people. When you bring in two more character personalities like Springer
and Simeon, you're just adding to an already good clubhouse. TC: Infield depth wasn't really a weakness on this team. Did you like the Semien signing? BM: The defence didn't have a good year last year, and I know Semien is a shortstop playing second, but that's a bonus. When you have athletic people, they can move around the diamond. You'll get the versatility of a shortstop playing at a new position. That should improve the infield defence. With Semien at second, you could put Cavan Biggio over to third, and he has looked great so far. Plus, now you bring Springer into centre, and you've improved your defence up the middle, that's always been a big concern in baseball. So, it would've been nice to add another pitcher…I'm sure they tried to make a run at Trevor Bauer and other pitchers that were on the market, but so far so good with the pitching staff. Semien is going to have a good impact on this team. TC: We now have four quality outfielders. How do you keep them all engaged? SPRING 2021 | 41
TC: The injury to Nate Pearson is disappointing. Are you comfortable with our rotation in his absence? BM: Well, Pearson's injury is a leg injury, not an arm injury. I guess that's a blessing. And he's a big strong kid, so I expect that he’ll be back, but I don't think you can just snap your fingers and say he's going to be back in the middle of April. So far, the pitching has been pretty good. The depth has been fine with Robbie Ray throwing well, Steven Matz throwing well, Russ Stripling…Anthony Kay and T.J. Zeuch are throwing the ball very well and they’re in competition to round out the rotation. Internally, there are enough options, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed that Pearson can come back, along with Thomas Hatch who has an elbow issue that has him on the shelf, too. TC: Is not having a home field a disadvantage to our team?

BM: I don't think any manager complains about having too many good players, but he'll have to figure out how to rotate those players and keep everybody involved. You're right, it's about keeping them engaged, making everybody understand that they’re part of this effort. It's going to take 30, 32 players over the course of the season to win a championship, and everybody has to play their role. I think Randal Grichuk understands that. Teoscar [Hernandez] had a great year last year. Springer’s going to play every day, he's going to rotate, play centre most of the time, maybe a little in right. Gurriel’s been a good hitter the last couple of years, so it’s imperative that you keep those guys involved. And now you've got the challenge of mixing in Guerrero and Rowdy Tellez at first base, as well. So, like I said, I don't think anybody ever complained about having too many good players. It's just a matter of how you keep them sharp.
BM: It is a disadvantage, there's no question. Last year, I thought the Jays did a tremendous job. Initially, everybody thought they might play in Toronto. That didn't happen. Then they thought they were going to Pittsburgh. That didn't happen. Maybe Baltimore, that didn't happen. They ended up in Buffalo, but you never heard them complain, they just stuck together. I think it was a team building experience for the entire organization. So, they’d love to be at Rogers Centre, there's no question. That's their home, that's where they want to play, and they want to play in front of fans. But we know that can’t happen right now. TC: How far can the Jays go in 2021? BM: I think health will have a lot to do with it. With Kirby Yates getting injured and Nate Pearson, you're always going to test your depth, but I think the team is motivated. They would be disappointed if they didn't get back to the playoffs. It might be a bit early in the run for this young group, but I wouldn't put anything past them. With the additions, I think this team has as good a chance as any team in the American League East to go into the playoffs.

SIMPLE SEASONAL COOKING By Alexandra Daum
SPRING ONION BISCUITS 46 | the COLLECTION
When I started working on my book, Occasionally Eggs: Simple Vegetarian Recipes for Every Season, the idea wasn’t to make it a seasonal recipe collection. Though using these types of ingredients has always been an important part of my cooking style, it seemed too inaccessible and out of touch, even a few years ago. But things have evolved, and with our changing climate, it is more important than ever to eat seasonally. It’s also easier on your wallet. Geographic location plays a large role when discussing seasonality, so I write recipes with my garden in mind. Most of the fruits and vegetables used are those I grow or buy at local markets, and ones that inspire me throughout the year. However, simplicity in cooking is key, and all my ingredients can be found at a regular supermarket and be substituted. Spring signals the true beginning of the year in the form of new life in the garden and on our plates. The first fresh ingredients to arrive after the hungry gap of late winter are wild garlic and nettle to forage, followed by early crops in the garden. With lengthening days and more sunlight, spring is special. More time outdoors lifts the spirits. Fresh greens bring colour to a drab, end-of-season palette. Berries arrive, along with radishes, asparagus and new potatoes. During this time of year, adding asparagus and any other available greens to pizza is my favourite way to eat them.

SPRING PESTO PIZZA I made this recipe over a dozen times while working on my book because I hated every photo. It was well worth it, let me tell you, because I still got to eat the pizza every time! I guarantee that it’ll knock your socks off. Spinach is called for twice in this recipe, in both the pesto and the toppings. Any hardy green, like chard, arugula, or kale, can be used in its place — whatever you have on hand.
Dough ¼ cup warm water 1 teaspoon honey 2¼ teaspoons dry yeast (½ cube fresh) 1 cup water, room temperature 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for coating the bowl 2 teaspoons salt 2½ to 3 cups spelt flour, divided
Pesto 2 cups basil 1 cup packed spinach 1 garlic clove Juice of 1 lemon ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons olive oil
Toppings 4 cups spinach 14 ounces asparagus, halved lengthwise, woody ends removed 1 medium leek, cut into ½-inch rounds, dark greens discarded 1 medium zucchini, cut into ½-inch rounds 2 cups button mushrooms, cut into ½-inch slices Olive oil, to drizzle Pinch of salt 48 | the COLLECTION
Serves four | 30 minutes prep time | 25 minutes cooking time | 1 hour rising time
To make the dough Whisk together the warm water, honey, and yeast in a large bowl. Let this mixture rest for 15 minutes. The yeast should bloom and look like foam. If nothing seems to be happening, your yeast is likely dead, either from being too old or because the water you used was too hot. Stir in the room-temperature water, oil, salt, and 1 cup flour with a wooden spoon. Add the remaining flour, about ½ cup at a time, stirring between each addition, until it becomes too difficult to mix. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface. Knead for 5 to 10 minutes, sprinkling additional flour as needed, until a soft, smooth dough forms. If you have a stand mixer, skip hand kneading and use the dough hook in your mixer instead. Clean your bowl, then add a drizzle of olive oil to it. Place the dough in the bowl, turning to coat with the oil. Cover with a plate or tea towel and set in a warm, draft-free spot. Let the dough rise for 50 or 60 minutes, or until doubled in size.
SPRING PESTO PIZZA
While the dough is rising, make the pesto Add the basil, spinach, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper to a small food processor, or use an immersion blender and blend well. Add the olive oil in a slow stream while blending, until fully incorporated and very smooth. Preheat the oven to 400 F
To make the pizzas Divide the dough into two equal pieces, roll out into rough circles around 1 inch thick, and place on parchment paper. Top each round with equal amounts of the pesto. Reserve a couple of tablespoons for serving. Divide the toppings among the two rounds of dough, starting with the spinach at the base, followed by the asparagus, leeks, zucchini, and mushrooms. Top each pizza with a drizzle of oil and sprinkle of salt. Bake each pizza for 25 minutes, baking both at the same time if your oven has a convection setting. The vegetables should be tender and the crust golden. Top each pizza with a drizzle of pesto and serve hot. This tastes best fresh but keeps well at room temperature for a day…and is pretty good cold, too!

U NLOC KING T ORONT O’ S L ANE WAY POT ENT IA L By Michelle Senayah Executive Director, The Laneway Project Toronto is a vibrant, growing city, partly through incremental intensification. We’re adding homes, shops, offices, schools and restaurants, piece by piece, project by project, as we develop our neighbourhoods. This evolvement has created a pressing need to improve our shared infrastructure, including our public spaces. Joan Clos, Executive Director of UN-HABITAT, once said, “what defines the character of a city is its public space, not its private space.” Toronto’s public spaces are essential to the physical, social and economic lives of our communities. They maintain and strengthen the uniqueness of our neighbourhoods, the dynamism of our local economies, and the vibrancy of our urban lives. Of course, all this has been underscored by the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic, which have pushed public life outdoors and forced us to adapt existing spaces for new and expanded uses that are no longer possible inside. 52 | the COLLECTION
Fortunately, the adaptation and improvement of our public spaces is especially well-suited to our current, piecemeal approach to improvement. In this fashion, existing public spaces are revitalized individually to create more welcoming, useful, and vibrant shared places at the local level as neighbourhoods intensify. As this occurs, the growing number of revitalized public spaces combine to create a positive shift in the “big picture” of Toronto's public realm. In addition to streets and parks, Toronto is fortunate to have a rich secondary network of public spaces, brimming with overlooked potential: the more than 2400 public laneways spread throughout our downtown and midtown neighbourhoods. Historically, these laneways have been treated as purely utilitarian spaces for deliveries and parking, yet they have the capacity to be so much more. Since 2014, The Laneway Project has worked with city staff, developers, BIAs, Residents’ Associations
and other civil-society groups to transform local laneways into living, people-friendly places. These projects have demonstrated that with improvements in key areas, Toronto's laneways can do double duty as back-of-house service spaces and welcoming places for people in the community. Here are some lessons learned:
Multi-Modal Traffic Management Toronto’s laneways are our smallest rights-ofway, generally 3.5 to 4 metres wide. So, while they are used by people in trucks and cars, on bikes and on foot, they do not have sufficient space
for separate car, bike and pedestrian areas. They need good lighting and traffic calming measures to ensure that everyone is moving at a reduced speed and sharing the space safely. Speed bumps don’t do the trick. Rather, this is best achieved by a coordinated set of measures that improve visibility and provide visual cues that make a laneway feel different from a street: downwardfacing, pedestrian-friendly lighting; planter gardens along the laneway edges of neighbouring properties to highlight the width of the space; road murals to signal that the space is a shared one; and windows and doors in the facades of neighbouring properties to break up closed walls and foster activity.

Toronto’s laneways are drab, grimy spaces that often suffer from ‘broken window syndrome.’ A combination of better maintenance and public art can change this quite quickly. Artists can work with local residents and businesses to add murals to the laneway frontages of neighbouring properties to signal community ‘ownership’; neighbouring property owners can keep those laneway frontages in good shape by consolidating waste storage and sweeping up daily; and the City can increase the frequency of road sweeping operations in the laneway.

While Toronto’s fastest-growing neighbourhoods are our most park-poor, they have our highest percapita amount of laneway space. Unfortunately, these laneways are often hard, grey spaces that perform poorly both environmentally and as a refuge from the hustle of our streets…but there is potential.

can soften the spaces, act as pollinator pathways, reduce the heat island effect and filter the air. Permeable paving can enable natural stormwater drainage to reduce the flooding of neighbouring properties and lessen the load on our storm and sanitary sewer system.
Sense of Safety Laneways can feel deserted, especially at night, when they are used by fewer people. This sense of safety can be addressed with a set of linked measures including: downwardfacing, pedestrian-friendly lighting to improve visibility; windows and doors to provide views into the space; direct entrances and exits from neighbouring properties; and active uses in the outdoor laneway-side spaces including gardens, patios and secure bike storage areas.

spaces during the COVID-19 pandemic have only highlighted the longstanding need to adapt our public spaces to foster outdoor public life year-round. Using measures that target cold-season stressors, we can transform Toronto’s laneways into places that are appealing and comfortable in all seasons: encouraging movement and activity, capturing and celebrating natural light, providing playful and artistic artificial lighting, introducing bright and vibrant colours, and providing shelter from icy wind. These steps will ensure that our public life doesn’t go into hibernation for six months a year. To ensure they are sustainable and locallyembedded, laneway improvements must be designed to work well within our complex, multiowner, multi-use and multi-stakeholder spaces. Collaborative, community-centered project planning, with a detailed design and implementation strategy, supports a projects’ integration into their 56 | the COLLECTION
neighbourhoods’ physical and social environments, setting them up for success. Early and regular consultation with local community champions such as Business Improvement Areas and Residents’ Associations help tap into existing local networks, and the use of a variety of in-person and virtual outreach methods allow the maximum number of local community members to share their input. Together, these approaches, measures and processes work to create positive, sustainable laneway spaces that will live up to their potential and help meet the needs of a changing city as our neighbourhoods grow and evolve. The Laneway Project is a non-profit social enterprise and a leading expert in the interdisciplinary, community-integrated revitalization of laneways and other overlooked public spaces.

Ambergris Cay YourIslandAwaits
Ambergris Cay is the jewel in the Turks and Caicos archipelago, named for the valuable substance derived from sperm whales that migrate around the island each winter. A haven for settlers and adventurers since the 18th century, the Cay was prized for its beauty and suitability for agave plantation and ambergris collection. The thousand-acre island has been in private hands since 1811, changing ownership several times over the centuries, though always under the rule of the British Crown.
60 | the COLLECTION
The Turks and Caicos Collection has now turned Ambergris Cay into an exclusive oasis, preserving its natural splendour, while building a community of luxury villas with world-class hotel facilities to enhance the experience. Escape amidst the enveloping presence of nature: jog past docile rock iguanas on the fitness trail, swim, or jump on a stand-up paddleboard before exploring the nearby coral reefs. Snorkel with sea turtles and kite surf with humpback whales. Sail the neighbouring islands, go reef and deep-sea fishing, or let our team teach you how to catch a bonefish in low tides. Laze in your villa to work, write, read, contemplate, and enjoy the company of your family and friends. Or simply relish the spectacular views of the surrounding sky from sunrise to sunset and into the starry night enjoyed from your private heated pool. Savour contemporary cuisine and favourites from around the globe — either in our restaurant or delivered to your door. The Ambergris Cay development offers an exclusive community for homeowners who cherish privacy, alongside neighbours with shared values. Live in the lap of luxury, while being able to bask in the
natural beauty of the island alongside the numerous varieties of indigenous flora and fauna. Currently, 20 homes exist along Colombus Beach. Up to 200 lots are “infrastructure ready” with access to all utilities, sewage, and digital connectivity. Villas can be used exclusively by homeowners or placed in the rental pool together with ten exquisite rentable freestanding suites on Monck Beach, as part of the Turks and Caicos Collection Resort offerings. Our significant investment in the infrastructure of Ambergris Cay ensures that it is suitably robust to handle our projected low-density growth and the commensurate hospitality services of finest quality. Our state-of-the-art facilities — built to code to withstand the highest category hurricanes — are in pristine condition and include: a reverse osmosis water purification system, a power plant that generates electricity for the entire island, a dedicated cell tower that provides full phone and high-speed internet access, fire and rescue teams, a medical clinic and infrastructural elements contributing to the independent operation of the island.

Global Insights The Second Home Market BY LUXURY PORTFOLIO INTERNATIONAL
Due to COVID-19, last year saw several unconventional trends within the second home market. This should not come as a surprise. After all, homes in vacation markets offer many of the most desired amenities right now — space, natural surroundings, and privacy. Through Luxury Portfolio International’s extensive global network, we have compiled insights from five successful second home markets including: Lake Tahoe, Nevada; Naples, Florida; The Hamptons, New York; Turks and Caicos Islands; and Whistler, Canada, providing a glimpse into the year we had. 62 | the COLLECTION
Scratch the Predictions Second home markets across the board saw an increase in sales volume and record-breaking numbers. For instance, Lake Tahoe witnessed one of its best years in history, doubling its sales volume compared to 2019. What makes this statistic even more fascinating is that it was achieved within the latter seven months of the year, trailing a market that was down 24–25% in the spring. Real estate agents are hopeful that the positive sales performance will carry into 2021, however, inventory will be a barrier. High-performing markets are witnessing a dwindling number of houses for sale. Accordingly, home values will continue their rise, while some of the past year’s sales momentum will slow.
TOP AMENITIES IN THE SECOND HOME MARKET
IN FASHION Swimming pool Personal gym Home office
OLD FAVOURITES Gourmet kitchen Walk-in closet
Lake Tahoe, Naples, and Whistler have all seen a surge in young buyers, some of which are buying their first primary residence. This is due to the increased acceptance of working from home, which has allowed buyers to trade proximity to the office for communities that better match their desired lifestyles. As an anecdote to this trend, The Hamptons has seen school registrations rise sharply, signaling a more permanent resident base within the region. Another all-around observation has been the greater emphasis on local buyers. For some, like in Lake Tahoe, local buyers from Northern California have always been the norm. Whistler, however, typically sees a solid base of international buyers, but this custom has been greatly reduced due to travel restrictions. Nevertheless, local buyers from both Canada and the U.S. have kept sales high. One standout exception to the local buyer trend is the market in Florida, which has attracted buyers from across the U.S., especially those from large cities or hightax states.

SPRING 2021 | 63
More is More Comprehensively, buyers want more of everything — more space, more amenities, and greater privacy. According to the November 2020 report, The Modern Luxury Home: Reimagined, lack of space is listed among the top reasons for why buyers are choosing to move. Significantly, buyers are abandoning condos and townhouses for single-family homes. This phenomenon has been observed in locations that include Whistler, Naples, and Turks and Caicos. They’re also prioritizing homes that are turn-key, seeking to avoid lengthy renovations, especially when such projects have seen serious backlogs. Swimming pools, for example, have been reported as a top amenity in The Modern Luxury Home — and some regions are reporting that the wait may take up to a year. The other top two amenities found in the report were offices and gyms, a trend also observed among vacation home markets. Meanwhile, entertainment is also essential, as evidenced by the demand for outdoor kitchens, wine cellars, and media rooms. Lastly, smart homes are continuing their ascent, with top features that include automation systems for lighting and other technology, as well as security systems and charging stations for electric vehicles. As with primary real estate markets, COVID-19 has completely broken the mold of what second home markets look like — purchases are being made in the off-seasons, primary residences in vacation markets are on the rise, and buyers are younger and more local. The draw of these regions is great with their resort style amenities, glorious natural surroundings, and greater seclusion from the world. Second home markets are expected to remain strong through 2021, with the most significant barrier being matching the demand. With all the noise of the world, it’s lovely to own a space in which one can get away. 64 | the COLLECTION
