Toronto's Financial District has seen some substantial vertical growth over the past few years, most notably the stretch of Adelaide Street West between Yonge and University. Back in Spring, 2010, construction of the Bay Adelaide Centre's long-awaited 50-storey, WZMH-designed west tower was wrapping up at the northeast corner of the Bay and Adelaide intersection. At the same time, tower floors were rising at the 58-storey Trump Tower across Adelaide to the south.

Fast forward to February, 2016, and the Zeidler Partnership Architects-designed Trump Tower has long since been completed. The view is now joined by the 44-storey Bay Adelaide East tower, a KPMB Architects and Adamson Associates Architects-designed office tower that recently saw the first of its tenants move in.
