I knew to expect something big on these empty lots, but this is one massive project
Although these towers designs don't look that interesting (like One Yonge ) tbh.

Those are likely place holders while the designs are finalized. The first rendering doesn't have the towers in the right positions or with the right heights.

On another note, Toronto now has 5 super tall proposals.

Wasn't the One Yonge design finalized?

I attended the public consultation meeting held earlier this week. As of now the project is in its earliest stages. Through further consultations, the project will get revised several times. Unlike other projects in the city, this is a development of a few city blocks. It requires road extensions (primarily Cherry Street), a partial preservation of the LCBO building. It includes a Public School, Community Centre, Day care facilities, and an 11 Acre public park.
The positioning of the condo towers is likely to change. At this point, there are no detailed renderings. The figures that you see of 304 metres for the twin tower proposal are just estimates at best. We will have to wait for the next coming months to see what progress has been made. However, I will not be surprised if the density gets scaled down a tad bit which was the case with Pinnacle's proposal. Nonetheless, it is a very ambitious project, and could potentially be the tallest cluster of towers in Toronto.

I think 1 yonge design is finalized and the issues waiting to be solved are benign.
Because Mr Peter Clewes is the main architect,i don't anticipate a great design for this project. Unfortunatley, ArchitectsAlliance only design pathetic boxes without style and charm.
Honestly, i would have preferred that a talented firm like Hariri Pontarini designed those towers.But ,we are not ready to see this project break ground anytime soon ,so the architecture will change ,and for the best i hope.

During this time, i will wait until February 14 2017 for the final approval of 1 Yonge .This project took more than 5 years to get approved.
It's time we get this landmark in our city finally.I hope pinnacle can market 1 Yonge next year.

I'm enjoying the emptiness of the area for the time being. It's a great spot to take in the skyline/construction relatively undisturbed by the hustle and bustle a few blocks north. Before we know it they'll be 25,000 people living here.

The only thing I'm wondering is why Toronto doesn't seem to like to go anywhere past 310 meters.

I've noticed the same thing. There's been so much rapid change in Toronto that the city is struggling just to keep pace with what's going up now. A big spike in population density is straining an already over loaded infrastructure. Investment in infrastructure is occurring but I sense that heights are being capped as low as they can go while still satisfying demand, zoning, and the culture's ability to adjust to the change being thrust upon it.

It was only a few years ago that people were horrified about 200m towers going up. What the culture here is comfortable with and what regulations allow is continually being tested. 300-310 seems to be the upper most limit today but I wouldn't be surprised to see that pushed to 350m by this time next year.

As land gets scarcer/costlier and the appeal of downtown living continues to grow, the case for going taller will become stronger. Keep in mind that Toronto is an extremely pragmatic and restrained place. Building a 450m show piece tower is just not going to happen for a while even if such a proposal would sell.

Yet it built the CN Tower 40 years ago.

Toronto has had flirtations with the grandiose throughout its history. The CN Tower and Skydome are the last examples of it; both seem like a life time ago. The city needs to start thinking like that if its to keep the momentum going. The rail deck park proposal suggests that the city does see the need for that type of mindset. Toronto's grown too big and important to Canada to continue as we have the last 25 years.

Very weak. I believe there's only one bus route that goes along Queens Quay east of Bay

I want a grand tunnel from Toronto to Youngstown, NY.

That'll be grandiose.
