Curbed
, dubbed "the granddaddy of all real estate blogs" by Forbes magazine, is targeting September for its Canada debut with city sites for Toronto and Vancouver.

Also planning a Canadian launch is Eater, a food-focused member of the Curbed network. For more on the impending invasion, see Monika Warzecha's interview with editorial director Sarah F.
