    Toronto 55C: 55 Charles Condos | 167m | 50s | MOD Developments | a—A

    what an absolutely hideous group of buildings! all the same materials, same style, same height. it may as well be a single monolith. a crime against humanity.

    Mississauga 180 Burnhamthorpe Road West | 230.15m | 71s | Emblem Developments | Arcadis

    this has to be in the top 10 bait and switches in GTA history. what are they thinking, building these monstrosities?

    the poor man's version of 53 West 53...?

    Toronto 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    sadly, I feel this has turned out to be a disappointment. the overall shape of the building is a positive, but the cladding is bland and boring. this building struggles to stand out from the other equally bland all glass buildings that it neighbours. I feel like the outline of the building...

    Toronto... the city of the box.

    Toronto 88 Queen | 167.35m | 52s | St Thomas Dev | Hariri Pontarini

    what a hideous monstrosity that main tower is... looks like a Howard Johnsons out of the 1970's.

    Toronto 11 YV | 213m | 62s | Metropia | Sweeny &Co

    look at all these things crammed in here. exact same formula every time. no different shapes, no different rooflines, no different materials. architecture reduced to window treatments.

    Toronto 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    this building is decent on its own but in context there are just too many sterile "all glass" buildings grouped together at Front and Simcoe.

    omg... Toronto doesnt hold a candle to the skyline of Chicago no matter what "the stats" about numbers of buildings say. Chicago has far more taller buildings and vastly superior and more diverse architecture.

    what a train wreck of a design... especially the base that has several different aesthetics mashed together, none of which is attractive on its own, but even worse glued together in such a forced way. once again i weep for the death of architecture. humanity passed its prime at least 50 years ago.

    Toronto 100 Simcoe | 209.6m | 61s | BentallGreenOak | Hariri Pontarini

    wow, this is really interesting and eye catching! this is what the city needs more of - full height masonry buildings ( even if they end up being prefab sections) to contrast the last 20 years of nothing but glass which has left so many parts of the downtown feeling sterile and lifeless...

    Toronto The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    the glass being used here appears to be much darker than depicted in the renderings... which is good. it will create more of a contrast with the CIBC tower across the street. the bronze tones in the renders looked too similar to my eyes.

    Toronto 310 Front West | 235.5m | 69s | H&R REIT | Hariri Pontarini

    I disagree about getting rid of the old buildings. I have always hated this development and felt it would have been better placed out by the airport or some suburban office park than in such a prominent location in the downtown core. I like the first proposed building that looks to keep the...

    Toronto Toronto House | 186.53m | 58s | Westbank | Hariri Pontarini

    my sense is that refers to simple (square or rectangular projection) balconies and how far they stick out from the edges of the building. examples like shown above where the majority of the open space is still inside the footprint of the building shouldnt be affected. it would be an...

    why cant we design and execute buildings this interesting at 4 or 5 times this height?

    Toronto Social at Church + Dundas | 164.89m | 52s | Pemberton | RAW Design

    the skyline has been pushing out in that direction quite a lot in the last 5 -10 years and is indeed quite busy now. p.s. - this building is terribly bleak.

    maybe if you are referring only to North America. otherwise, you really need to get out of your bubble. have a look at the big South American cities for example. they have this density as far as the eye can see, whereas Toronto is only a small rectangle in the downtown core.

    Toronto One Delisle | 155m | 44s | Slate | Studio Gang

    the suspense is killing me on this one... one of a handful of towers I am actually excited by and they are taking forever just to get started. hopefully the finished product is not a let down.
