I guess I must clarify. I'm not against 48 storeys or 18 storeys however I'd hate to see something like M5V's built form (a tower incorporating a mid-rise podium with minimal setback from the street) on a primarily lowrise block that should remain lowrise at all costs (unlike most of the M5V's block)How is 18 stories too tall when the Holiday Inn is across the street?
If you are really "in the loop".... you'll be lonely soon.
If your serious, I know exactly what you mean. I was in Chicago less than a month ago and I couldn't stop walking around just to get a sense of all the development. Beautiful city with some interesting things in the pipeline.
According to Emporis, it was the tallest res. tower in the world for a full quarter of a century but it's been passed by two Chicago towers and two NYC towers, not to mention all kinds of Asian towers. The two Aussie towers, Q1 and Eureka, are tops right now until Dubai finishes god knows what, and Trump World Tower in NYC is the highest res. tower in North America right now, according to: http://www.emporis.com/en/bu/sk/st/tp/ty/rs/.Not even close. I'm not sure what is the tallest res. tower, but it's not Lakepoint.
Thank you for all these reports. I am not sure what this board would do without you (I guess just spread more bogus rumours than we already do. ).Preliminary Report, Toronto East York Community Council:
You're welcome. Most of these threads aren't rumours but actual insider info - I just went into the city reports and confirmed them - so you should give the credit to those who did the leg work and actually went to the meetings or are otherwise kind enough to let us know what's going on behind the scenesThank you for all these reports. I am not sure what this board would do without you (I guess just spread more bogus rumours than we already do. ).
