There are still a few smaller buildings missing here and there and a few modifications and design changes that still need to occur however.

Overall skyline of the ever changing future Toronto:



50 at Wellesley station and its surroundings:



The two big new office proposals across the street from each other (notice the removal of Oxford Place)



Added a bunch to my previously rather sparse NYCC model, I'm still missing a bit as well. Info is tough to come by for so many of the projects in this area..



Y+E has a bunch of previously missing smaller proposals added, and E condos has finally shifted to construction:



Bloor Yorkville gets ever denser with the addition of Cumberland Terrace:



The east end of the city: I want to make the most modifications to the model on this side soon. Update the East Bayfront which is missing some things and otherwise rather sparse and incorrect, and get a proper model setup of Regent Park. These are particularly difficult to do because of the outdated satellite imagery, A lot is guesstimating dimensions and street locations.

Toronto is obscene. That's like 2 DT's worth of any other large Canadian city in just new proposals. My God it's not fair!

I wonder why there's nothing doing in Scarborough anymore. It was on a bit of a roll for a few years.

I don't know if this one has been posted before. Just shows the effect that the addition of Brookfield Place will have on the skyline. Does not include any of the other major projects UC or proposed in this view (EAP II, Telus Sky, etc).

Funny thing is it's only like 11 meters taller. The fact it's a block closer from this angle also helps. I'm curious to see how it will look from the north.

What boggles my mind is how just a few years ago Suncor / PetroCanada was the hands down tallest. I had such a hard time visualizing something being taller. Now it will be in 4th place after Brookfield Place, the Bow and Telus Sky. Crqzy.

Damn Bankers Hall.... there's a pair of buildings that should've had a height differential between the two towers. Anyway, Brookfield is going to be a great addition!

Hopefully, office demand in Calgary spikes far higher and Brookfield Place 2 is re-worked as a taller version of Brookfield Place 1. 280m would be nice.

Yellow means approved and in sales mode.

Agreed!


But with a substantially different design!

Can office demand impact the size of the second phase? I thought the site is maxed out density wise.

A quick and dirty sketch with Telus Sky and EAP II added in.
When the Eau Claire 7 tower project and Park Point towers are released, I will add them to my renders I'm working on and post them. But for now:


PS. Toronto is a monster! Unbelievable!

280-290 meters for Brookfield #2 would be fine.... but change the design a little please! No more identical twins. The only problem I see with that is the max FAR allows for a max of 2.8 million sq. ft.! A 280+ meter tower might put it way over the limit.... (which wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit)!

Great job with the Calgary photoshop. No way you would guess that's a city of 1 million if you didn't know better.
