You should go up on a helicopter tour of Toronto I'm sure you'll come away with some awesome shots (without worrying about dirty windows) unfortunately those tours usually cost an arm and a leg

Nice. Interesting that the original office core isn't very big at all...It doesn't really look like there are actually that many office buildings in the skyline for a city that size? Love all of the glassy residential though, what a change over the past 10 years! I haven't been there in ages, I wouldn't recognize it!

The office core is enormous. It isn't just the very tall buildings in the small, tight cluster. It extends North along Bay Street and University Avenue about 1.5 miles to Bloor Street, and then East and West on Bloor Street from about Avenue Rd. to about Sherbourne Street.

I meant there aren't that many big signature office towers on the skyline relative to the skyline as a whole...that's all.

Wow! I love these aerial views, they really show the scale of highrise density in the city. Number 6 and 18 really show how far out into the city the buildings go. All those highrise apartments dotting the landscape way out in the boroughs make the city look really built-up from the air.

That third shot is pretty good. I was under the impression (not sure why) that Toronto had a core of big towers and then dropped off to low-rise apartment buildings immediately outside that.

Amazing looking city, unfortunately still an enigma for me that's well within my sights to visit.

Simply amazing. Makes me so jealous that I live in a metro with just as many people, yet we are spread out so thinly over 8,000 square miles and Toronto packs them in efficiently over maybe 1,500 square miles and still leaves room for people to live in homes...AND it is not that expensive! It checks all the boxes

^^I find Toronto expensive. It's also quite congested due to inadequate transportation infrastructure. Otherwise I'd probably be living there.

Appears to be uptown Toronto, (North York).
