Our top news story from December covered the evolving plans for a massive mixed-use development from Pinnacle International that would include five Hariri Pontarini-designed towers with heights up to 95 storeys at the foot of Yonge Street. If built as proposed, the tallest tower would become one of the country's tallest, and would add a landmark at the foot of Yonge Street on the Toronto skyline when viewed from the islands. Number two was a story on a longtime surface parking lot on Queen near Jarvis, now seeing development plans, while number three was a proposal for an architecturally striking building at Bay on Davenport by Douglas Cardinal.

Our Top Ten Forum Threads
With the 35-storey Sun Life Financial Tower now topped-off and nearly fully clad, the development's residential component—the two Harbour Plaza Residence towers—are rising fast and drawing much attention on the Forum, pushing the project's thread to number one. Following in second place, the EY Tower is growing taller in the Financial District, while the rapid rise of tower floors at 88 Scott Street has kept the project's thread in the top three.
