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

    Y'all need to stop getting your hopes up about Toronto development proposals. I'm not disappointed because this is what I was expecting all along.

    Toronto Toronto | 15-17 Elm | 99m | 30s | Fora | PARTISANS

    Cool drawing. Now show us what you're actually going to build.

    Toronto Toronto | 399 Yonge | 252.3m | 75s | Capital Developments | Teeple Architects

    But 1200 Bay is not approved so that number doesn't mean much. And surely this proposal will never get approved at 51.6 either. They'll have to acquire an adjacent property or reduce the height significantly.

    Toronto Toronto | 36 Eglinton West | 199.99m | 59s | Lifetime | Wallman Architects

    I'm confused, I thought the zoning application had been refused?

    Toronto Toronto | 88 Isabella | 203.65m | 62s | Capital Developments | Diamond Schmitt

    62 stories seems like a bit of a stretch for this location, isn't it? I think they'll have to chop a few stories to get it approved.

    Toronto Toronto | 30 Scollard | 231.4m | 61s | Constantine Enterprises | CAL

    The approved height is 308m, and that's what will be used when evaluating this proposal. But either way, just take a look at steveve's diagram - this building makes a very conspicuous breach in the clothesline. Just like they said 260m at Bay & Bloor was "too tall" because it doesn't adequately...

    Toronto Toronto | 30 Scollard | 231.4m | 61s | Constantine Enterprises | CAL

    I'd be willing to bet the City will consider this "too tall" because it doesn't step down from the height peak at Bloor.

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

    Looking forward to watching this peek into my view.

    Toronto Toronto | 415 Yonge | 231m | 66s | Marwest | Kirkor Architects

    I also like the tower itself but the way it's stuck on top of the existing building looks pretty ridiculous. I agree with @UtakataNoAnnex this seems unlikely to be a serious proposal.

    Toronto Toronto | The HUB | 258.46m | 59s | Oxford Properties | Rogers Stirk Harbour

    My understanding is that Oxford is not saying the building will be completed by 2025; they're saying that IF they found a tenant then it could be ready by 2025. I seem to recall them previously saying that it would be ready in 2023, then they said 2024... By next year if they still don't have...

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

    The general sentiment was very much the opposite. A lot of people (especially Mike Layton) seemed angry that Mizrahi had originally proposed around 338m several years ago, but after negotiations with the City they reached an agreement of 307m. The case was supposed to be closed, but now suddenly...

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

    I attended the consultation so I can confirm that councilor Layton is pretty strongly opposed to the height increase, as are several members of residents associations. Their only real argument seems to be the shadows on Jesse Ketchum, plus the usual NIMBY rhetoric like traffic congestion...

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

    Sadly it's mostly the NIMBYs that bother to attend these events. More people like us on these forums should attend and speak out in favour of the developments to counter the NIMBYs.

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

    The value may not have doubled but the construction costs probably have. 😆

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

    Mizrahi might just be trying to establish a name for himself so that future projects will be more profitable.

    Toronto Toronto | Union Centre | 298m | 54s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    Amazing how every iteration of this proposal keeps getting taller and taller! March 2014: 240m March 2019: 266m July 2020: 274m July 2021: 286m September 2021: 298m By the time it actually gets built, maybe it will be 350m. 😆

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

    Hold on, that's an interesting idea. Maybe there are 85 storeys but they're just calling it a "95-storey tower" because they skipped 10 numbers. Maybe Concord hasn't actually changed anything.

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

    Wow, talk about the contrast between the Well and the garbage at City Place!
