Throughout the latter half of December, we asked you to vote on your favourite buildings completed in Toronto during 2014. Seven categories covered Commercial, Institutional and Residential developments of different size. Over the holidays we conducted the final round of voting, squaring off the finalists from each category in a poll to determine the single best building of 2014. In the end, it was two buildings that inspired voters equally, with both the L Tower and the Delta Hotel Toronto landing 28.57% of the vote each. The Aga Khan Museum came in a close third with 20.95%. A full recap of the finalists and overall winners for the Best GTA Buildings of 2014 can be found below.
