^office buildings are suppose to be huge. companies don't like paying for smaller offices.
I understand that but this property is big enough to put the BMO building plus . By the time they carve out the old building plus the property. They could have put a super tall here !

Its funny you say that this lot looks large.?..I drive by there everyday and to me it always looked like a small sliver of land with maybe enough room to build a condo bldg of the size of 300 Front, never thought they could squeeze an office bldg of this size, but now that they have included that additional piece of land of that old warehouse building i can see it happening...this lot is a lot smaller than it looks in pictures
.., im sure the BMO sits on twice or more of this size lot

If you're talking about the whole BMO Plaza area of course that's going to much larger. I'm just talking about the 72 Storey structure itself as seen on Google Earth.

Good to see this lot go. I remember taking pictures of the area 13 years ago when RBC Dexia and the Ritz projects across the street looked just like that.
