not really all that much, but buildings start to appear really tall after around 400 feet, and it is a sort of arbitrary height point for buildings to be considered skyscrapers.

What is the significance of 400 feet? Is it a zoning height restriction? A convenient comparitive measure?

Just curious, Thanks
cc46, the significance of 400 feet goes back over a decade when I first started compiling earlier iterations of this list.

At that time Toronto had less than a dozen 500 foot buildings with only a handful under construction or proposed.
What Toronto did have (what seemed like at the time) was a large number of proposals in the 400-500 foot range.

On various international forums users maintained lists of under construction/proposed buildings in their city that were at least 500 feet.
I wanted to collect and maintain a similar list for Toronto, but wanted to reduce the height threshold to one that would guarantee a dynamic, constantly evolving list.

Great update! So many new projects in the pipeline! Thanks to all for the many great photos.

Note: Noir Condo (515' 49 floors) is listed both in "Sales and Leasing” and in "Proposed" list segments...

Hi all

First of all, this is a very interesting thread. Thanks for posting all the info
I am looking for a consolidated and as complete as possible list of condos in Toronto and if one exists for GTA.

I need a list that would contain the following:
-address of the building
-height of the building (this thread seems to list all the buildings above 400ft buildings)

of a secondary importance but if that is possible I would also like to see:
-capacity of the building (how many apartments)
-apartment types: 1, 2, 3...etc.. bedrooms
-completion year

Does such a list exist? If it is public could you point a link here please ?

thank

This graphic by The Grid is kinda cool. It does, however, call 200m+ "supertall"

Toronto’s growth spurt isn’t over just yet. While we’ve built or are building more super-tall skyscrapers (200 metres or higher) over the past three years than in all previous years combined, that’s nothing compared to what could be coming: There are a grand total of 16 buildings taller than 200 metres currently planned. Here’s how they’d measure up on our skyline.

I think this site is very comprehensive.
