More than anything, I'm happy that the new tallest towers in Toronto (and Canada), which will most likely become icons heavily associated with the city, will be designed by a legitimate architect like Norman Foster rather than P+S or G+C.
Very impressive. The predictions about office space demand seem to have taken a complete U-turn, and now we're on the back-foot. Not that I'm complaining. This will also hopefully all push the DRL even higher up the agenda.
As exciting as this is I don't see it happening. What major tenants can we name that could anchor even half of one of the two. Even taking into account that it has been mentioned previously that these will be mixed use and contain a significant amount of residence. If it is possible, I don't expect both this proposal and Mirvish + Gehry project to come to fruition.
