We return to the Financial District with today's Throwback Thursday for another look at a view permanently altered by skyscraping new developments. On June 8, 2007, Temperance Street was home to the bustling construction site for the long-awaited Bay Adelaide Centre, while Scotia Plaza and First Canadian Place loomed overhead.

Almost seven years later, a nearly identical vantage point is hardly recognizable. First Canadian Place, Canada's tallest building, has been blocked from view by the Bay Adelaide Centre's west tower, while the east tower can be seen rising to the left. In the background, the Trump International Hotel and Tower can be seen adding to the cluster of new towers.

We will return next week with another look at the changing face of Toronto!
