This might be of interest to some readers. I have compiled as best I can the Toronto top ten lists from 1929 to 2014.

It is very possible that I have missed some candidates, or got the completion year or height wrong (in fact I know that some heights are almost certainly wrong, since I was forced to estimate several early building heights), but it should give a good idea of the top 10 buildings for each of the listed years (the years not listed would be identical to the last listed year before it). Bolded entries are buildings that were completed that year -- for years in the future I used the SSP completion date.

The TD Bank Tower, number one when completed in 1967, will soon be the 10th tallest.
