    Toronto | Mirvish+Gehry Toronto | 308m | 82s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    The previous iteration would have been phenomenal, but I'm not disappointed by this new version either. To my eye, they still look like nothing else in the city, and will become a pretty iconic pair of buildings if they live up to their plans... That said, I really think they should go back to...

    Toronto | 250 King East | 132.85m | 40s | Emblem Developments | IBI Group

    Is it though? The architectural design certainly is insulting, no disagreement there. However, the height seems pretty reasonable and consistent with other recent nearby proposals. 33 Sherbourne at 38 storeys, the King East Centre res tower at 37 storeys, Bauhaus at 32 storeys, 75 Ontario at 34...

    Toronto | 1750 The Queensway | 126.3m | 38s | BDP Quadrangle

    I don't disagree that it would be appropriate to build taller here, but it's not really a big deal in my view. It's isn't as if this is the last plot of land in the area - there's an abundance of very easily developable land around here and I would imagine the density and height will gradually...

    Toronto | 1750 The Queensway | 126.3m | 38s | BDP Quadrangle

    Surprised this August 31st, 2020 resubmission slipped past us... Tallest building is now 38 storeys. Roof height of that tower is 126.30 metres but there are 'fins' that extend above that point. Source
