UrbanToronto member androiduk recently caught this view of a rising Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences along Yonge Street south of St. Clair. This vantage point occurs where Yonge mounts the former shoreline of post-glacial Lake Iroquois, an escarpment that crosses town mostly above Davenport Avenue, and best known for the hill on Avenue Road. Here the Iroquois shoreline escarpment provides a view over North Yorkville to Toronto's Uptown core, and from this angle it is plain that the Menkes and Lifetime Developments project, currently at 30 floors, will dominate the area when it rises to its final 52 storey/195 metre height.
