I'm going to bow out, Urban Toronto. Following the Mirvish+Gehry saga has been fun. My final word of advice: stop being so conservative, especially when it comes to liquor laws. The beer store and 2am pub closing suck.
MrR this proposal has the tallest tower at 88 storeys. For an answer to your question, check out the 1 Yonge Street thread and click on the Waterfront Toronto link. Height and density will be definitely be an uphill battle for Pinnacle.
Yes they changed it when they submitted their official proposal to the city. There were quite few changes from the original unofficial proposal compared to the one submitted to the city.
That 1st pic with 3 towers is far uglier than the Gehry proposals in my opinion. The 4th one down is the only one I really like out of that batch.
Here's Christopher Hume again, tossing backhanded compliments to the "low foreheads" at city hall.
His assertion that Keesmaat would have had no problem with these heights if the buildings were typical rectangles strikes me as absurd. He's been over the moon for this project as if they offered him a penthouse suite to the point where I don't think he acknowledges ANY of the actual concerns planning raised as legitimate.
