The game changer in all of this could be the possible intensification of the Convention Centre site. There is no reason to restrict height on that site. The skyline impact could be huge.
I put a lot more detail into many of the models here, showing an even better example of what our future skyline will look like.
the future entertainment district, showing how crazy the density will be there;
Future view from NPS like i promised;
and a view from slightly south of X2
and holyyyyyy... the skyline is gonna get bigger and smaller at the same time! bigger in the sense that the skyline is gonna be taller/the city is gonna be more dense, but smaller because these towers are so huge that they are on an entirely different scale, so everything else looks irrelevant, so it looks like our skyline is made up of only a few towers... bittersweet i guess
Toronto City Model:
as more buildings are proposed, our future skyline grows larger.
the new lumen building in cityplace has been added;
the hilton inn proposal added, despite it actually being quite the old proposal. (i spent forever with this model, lots of setbacks, and I tried to get the dimensions as accurate as possible) this is probably the most accurate model in the entire thing.
60 colbourne and the new 47 floor proposal beside it. (just a massing model as no renders have been released yet)
and saving the best for last, my interpretation of the 277m mega tower going up in yorkville; (this is what it will look like, judging by the singular line drawing we have so far) one bloor is still at 238m, as it will be until i hear an official height for the recent increase to 75 floors.
What's that proposed building east of the Bay Adelaide Centre?
Also, excellent work, innsert.
the second phase of the bay Adelaide centre of course.
Awesome job, insert. I love looking at these.
so.. I decided to go through and colour code my buildings according to their current state in the application-completion stages of construction! if you see a building with the wrong colour, or if you see a missing proposal, PLEASE TELL ME! provide a link to its forum thread if possible for the missing project too!. I'll try to add it! (think of the borders as bathurst to the don valley, and the waterfront to davenportish) if someone is willing to give me a good linked list of liberty village or any projects south of queen and east of bathurst i would be happy to do those as well!
WHITE = the project has had preliminary renders, but no application has been submitted.
RED = the project has submitted an application to the city
GREEN = the project has been approved, but has yet to start construction
YELLOW = the project is currently in sales
BLUE = the project is currently under construction
classic skyline shot;
zoom in on the entertainment district to give a better idea of what's happening there;
a shot to show how dominant 50 Bloor west will be;
and just a nice aerial of the entire city;
That was awesome. Thanks for doing that.
Awsome renderings! Would you say that you have a lot of the 400+ list on here that I was looking at in another thread? If not I would imiagine that would add a considerable amount of density above and beyond what this shows. Amazing though, even with all this density we are still so small compared to many of the neighbours to the south, and we are like a little ant compared to many of the cities in asia. Really cool shots of the entertainment district as well.
I went through the maps, and it turns out I'm missing 65 projects from my model!!!!
they are mostly under 30 floors, but still, thats a ton!
heres my list of missing buildings/ to do list; (these are just the ones currently MISSING form my drawings lol, there are probably just as many in my model currently)

This boom really is quite amazing. I was browsing around on SSP, looking at the world map, and some cities maybe only have 2, 3 or 4 new proposals -- if that.
I figured it looked like it was shy more then a few condo/ office buildings... either way what you have done so far is great work, I cant wait to see all the other ones when they get put in there.
Man, with all this future development innsert's showing, is there any reason why that parking lot is still there? Does it have anything to do with its close proximity to City Hall or has no one shown interest yet?
(Sorry, I'm not sure if the picture was viewable on here).
