    Toronto Toronto | KING Toronto | 57.6m | 16s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    The well is pretty good as well.

    Mississauga Toronto | Square One District | ?m | 65s | Oxford Properties | Hariri Pontarini

    Mississauga has a LOT of potential. I mean, if Toronto has to be a Grade A Megacity, Its suburbs have to develop into proper satellite cities themselves. That is the only way of creating a proper mega region. If Toronto gets the huge headquarters, then Mississauga could get the operation parks...

    Exactly !!

    Toronto vs Melbourne

    Well many of their towers are glass monoliths. you may like them, I don't. I still believe that The One or Gehry will turn out a lot better than the recent melbourne glass and gold towers. Moreover Melbourne being hot really surprises me with their overuse of glass. Also, another opinion, the...

    Toronto Toronto | 212 King Street West | 250m | 80s | Dream Office | SHoP

    Still looks fairly tall. Hopefully the design is good.

    Toronto vs Melbourne

    Really ??? I find Melbourne really bland and rather a smaller version of Toronto. Their new buildings are all glass as well. For me, the most jaw-dropping skyline is Chicago (with its iconic towers), Singapore (Just Brilliant) and Shenzhen (Due to the brilliant lighting and density). Melbourne...

    Toronto Toronto | The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    The colour of the panels was something that I had sooooooo wished to have in Toronto. With lighting inside, I see the curtain wall giving warm, golden and earthy hues that Toronto sorely lacks.

    Toronto Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    Seeing this picture, It seems essential that a tall pinnacle one Yonge project balance out the sheer verticality of the CN tower and surrounding bank towers. While some towers seem prominent, we still see that our skyline from the postcard view still centres on CN tower and a few...

    Toronto Toronto | Toronto House | 186.53m | 58s | Westbank | Hariri Pontarini

    Yes but Toronto has so many more. The density is crazy here. Melbourne can barely compete with Toronto in skyscrapers. Toronto is competing and HAS TO compete with the likes of Chicago and New York. Competing with B-grade cities like Melbourne is not an option anymore.

    Toronto Toronto | Pinnacle One Yonge | 344.9m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    The One needs those Super columns due to a very peculiar ground floor retail design at the request of a certain fruit company.

    Toronto Toronto | The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    I have visited hundreds of cities around the world. And Toronto looks far from "shabby". It has overhead wires but so do Tokyo, Hongkong, and many other cities. It is certainly not overflowing with garbage. Ever been to New York or Chicago? And pothole is a problem that any city with a climate...

    Sometimes it's just pathetic you guys complaining about these first-world problems. Every day hearing my Canadian friends complaining endlessly despite living in such luxury. There ARE actual problems in this world.

    Toronto Toronto | St Lawrence Market North | 25.3m | 5s | City of Toronto | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    This project seems to have a very "European" vibe to it.

    Toronto Toronto | Concord Sky | 299m | 85s | Concord Adex | a—A

    The building looks good according to me. But New Yorkers have singled it out as one of their worst buildings. Not to mention severe quality issues plaguing its multi million dollar houses.

    Toronto Toronto | 83 Bloor West | 269.05m | 82s | Parallax | Arcadis

    Thanks for suggesting this ! Toronto is BOOMING ! So many projects of all shapes and sizes :)

    Can you please give your opinion on the "architectural beauty" of 432 Park Avenue ?

    Toronto Toronto | Concord Sky | 299m | 85s | Concord Adex | a—A

    See kids ! Don't have this kind of perspective to life ! Judging a building based solely on a single early rendering, without any progress on ground. This is not how architecture works sir ! And this is coming from an architect.

    Toronto Toronto | Concord Sky | 299m | 85s | Concord Adex | a—A

    Even if the building may not have the architectural beauty but due its sheer location and size, It will be a defining feature. And mark my words, if they even do a decently good lighting, it will make the city look great ! I mean I hate to see the Aura during the day, but at night, It looks...
