^ After Mies' superb TD Centre stole the tallest in Canada spot from Montreal's Place Ville Marie, Pei's CommerceCourt tower followed as tallest for 4 years when completed in 1972 (still looks great). Both are slipping from waterfront views now. It still features well in those classic top down shots of King & Bay.

Not sure if it CC3 was the tallest height to width scraper in the world when built (may have been), but certainly one of them.

Wow, I have no clue what's even going on in my city anymore....

Queens Quay....looks like its to be built on old parking deck. Very, very close to the lake. Will be a monster in those famous skyline shots.

11 Bay St. - Westin Harbour Castle Conference Centre, 54 floors of Office, no renders yet, only a massing study, looking a lot like Bay Adelaide W on steroids...

Maybe it's 312 feet which for Kitchener would still be very impressive.

It changed about 2 weeks ago, when more detailed architectural info became available. Shoring began but has since halted, not sure what the real status is now...

One Young is the five storey office building on the site of the old Mayfair hotel. It's fritted glass image of the old hotel merits a few pics in the Under Construction thread (Or a visit to its thread in WRC).

The One has not stopped construction. They were working on the ramp yesterday. The tower got its NOAC issued from the city this week, it's full steam ahead.

One Yonge is still working on the phase 1 tower (217m) , with phase 2 in sales. The supertall tower was never going to start until phase 1 tops out.
