    My model covers the area from Dufferin to the DVP and from the Lake to almost Lawrence Ave. There are approximately 1200 buildings shown, from the supertalls to lowrise. Most buildings less than 6 floors / 20 metres aren't shown. It's a work in progress, that I've been adding to for about 5 years now. If you spot an error or problem please let me know so I can correct it. For anyone who wishes to view my model in 3D, please message me and I'll set it up.

    It's called Second Life, a 3D interactive environment.

    Great work! Can you do a Polson Pier view and classic Toronto Islands view of the skyline?

    The Island view is looking straight down Yonge... the tiny dark building dead centre is 2 St. Clair West.

    Great work again! The island view still looks good though less balanced than today. Too bad Commerce Court 3 isn't taller. Hopefully that'll change as its design evolves. Also, it's interesting that CIBC Square is almost completely blocked in the Polson Pier view.
