When viewed alone, the cluster of towers around the intersection of Yonge & Bloor would be a respectable skyline for any mid-size city. As a product of planning policy that sought decentralization, Toronto is a city with multiple hubs. Acting as redundant "downtowns" these commerical and residential nodes help to ease congestion and development pressure in the heart of the city. One of the earliest to be developed and among the largest, sites on the stretch of Bloor Street from Jarvis to Avenue Road are much sought after by developers. Among the largest new projects in this area are the Four Season Hotel & Residences, One Bloor East and the proposal for 50 Bloor Street West. With excellent transit infrastructure, an adundance of services and stable land values, this portion of the city will undoubtedly see a great many more developments in the years to come.
