Some sweet vertical action there.

Some of Toronto's older skyscrapers are now lost in a forest of glass. It's nice to see them again!

Cheers.

Wow!! I was unblinkingly glued to my monitor and I didn't want it to end. Absolutely superb.

One day, Toronto will be mistaken for an asian city! It won't be the most beautiful city, far from it, but it'll be massive!

Loved it, good to see an update on all the new stuff that has gone up in the last 3 years. A couple of the tours in 14 look fake almost like a rendering or something. Oh and where is the new Trump Tower?

You might be right, at least in terms of an aerial view. On the ground, it's a far different story.

At this point I'd say Toronto's skyline far surpasses the likes of Bangkok, Singapore and Manila, all impressive in their own right. But yeah, Toronto still has a ways to go to compete with Shanghai, HK, Seoul etc.

I, for one, prefer more of a low-rise kinda city. The relentless highrise construction in T.O. is quite amazing, though.

there is a neat little optical illusion in this photo:

the large brown building in the center of the photo is actually 2 buildings, on a 90 degree angle from each other. but in the photo it appears as one huge, fat building!

Those views from CN Tower are absolutely stunning. Love Toronto.

Congrats from Madrid, Spain!

i should probably know this, but what is the clustered skyline in the distance in #23? it could stand on its own as a notable skyline, but i presume it's just a part of (or suburb of) toronto.

nice pics as usual, flar.
