It does seem almost certain that the height of 277m to the top of the mechanical box is close to the actual height.

Wow massive building! How is Toronto going to keep filling these towers? It seems like they keep getting bigger and bigger...

if we can just get a new tallest building by the end of this boom, I'll be happy.

Does Toronto have FAR (Floor Area Ratio) that limits the size of building bulk on a particular plot? What would keep a developer from going over 1000'?

it not being economically feasible is the only restriction right now, with the exception of the entertainment district. there, there is a strongly enforced height limit of 157m.

What about Aura, Four Seasons, and One Bloor ??

There is nothing on the books.. I don't think so.

from insertnamehere.

QUOTE=innsertnamehere;627172]this on the future skyline:






note, One bloor is still at 238m, and with a flat roof. I think we lost the slanted roof in recent designs, so its flat, and I am waiting for an official height for the recent increase to 75 floors before increasing it.[/QUOTE]

Bearing in mind the elevation changes between Yorkville and the CBD, this and 1 Bloor are going to look gargantuan coming downtown from the north. Four Seasons looks huge and it's only 700'.

Yorkville is set to become the Midtown Manhattan of Toronto.

I was thinking the same. Driving down the DVP the Four Seasons looks very tall, this with another 200' in height will be massive on the skyline.

a bit further down Bloor you'll find the application and elevation renderings.

Posted the tower so squat, as to not scare the neighbours
