    Default Deepest Building in Toronto?

    We all talk about the tallest buildings, but I'm curious, what's the deepest building? Not including subways (York Mills Station) or tunnels, what's the deepest building?

    Wonder what the average number of levels underground is here in Toronto and what's considered 'deep'.

    The depth of the foundation has nothing to do with the number of occupiable floors below-grade.

    That said, RoCP is fairly deep (6 or 7 storeys, I believe). I recall Festival Tower also seeming to have a very deep excavation.

    A quick wiki search claims that Scotia Plaza is the deepest "The excavation reached a depth of 110 ft (33.5 m) which is the deepest excavation for a building in Canada's history." - wikipedia. Take that as you will. Shangri-La was the second deepest.

    Cool!

    1. 110ft Scotia Plaza
    2. 101ft Shangri-la
    3. ??? ROCP or perhaps RBP - there are rumors of deep sub-basement levels
