Thread: Future Toronto 3d model

  1. #1

    Default Future Toronto 3d model

    basic model of almost all future buildings for down-town Toronto done: many more obscure ones still to add. I uploaded them to Google earth, and, viola!





    check out my future toronto renders, complete with colour coding of the stages of construction!

    Nice work innsert. Quartz and Spectra are two fairly prominent ones that could be added along with library district condos to fill in the left foreground of your first screenshot

    hey innsert, do you mind showing an up close view over looking just the "downtown south" part. I'm curious to see how all the proposed developments fit into the area?

    some updated renderings with a lot more buildings. still missing Mars II, the twins where the hilton garden inn is, and the old sapphire site.. whatever is going there. any more suggestions would be appreciated! One Bloor and Aura do not take into account their recent floor additions.


    a pic of the model in sketchup, to show the sheer amount of construction going on in this city.

    this is great, thank you! How are you doing these, are you drawing the developments yourself or Google Earth has some kind of future projects feature?

    I use google sketchup. i first locate where the building is, then take a "snapshot" from google earth of its location. I then make a model of it. then upload it to google earth! the first picture in my last post shows it in sketchup with all the geolocation pictures in it. (thats what it looks like when I'm making it)

    Red = proposal
    Green = U/C
    A bunch of constructed buildings such as Pantages and Spire were missing so I tried to ad those that I noticed. Also I'm sure I missed a bunch of U/C or proposed buildings. This view shows everything within front to Bloor, and Jarvis across to University. Most of the red is just massing.

    If you see something missing, please let me know. Also I'm not putting in any speculation proposals.

    These are simply amazing, I had no idea Google Earth could let you do so much with one snapshot. Enjoyed watching these future models. This is what GTA needs!
