Toronto's skyline still have a lot to "eat" to come even close to Chicago's skyline.

Even with a new tower comparable in size with Sears, it will not have the decades of history Sears have... so the real impact will not be similar.

IMO, Chicago stand with NY in the same league, even if Chicago is a bit smaller, Chicago is more balanced and esthetic. Toronto is in a league o it's own, not really in the NY-Chi league, but well above the rest (like Houston or LA).

C'mon, If you don't have anything to post, just don't post. It is so much more satisfying than a screenshot image of a SSP diagram.

Number of Buildings over 168 meters / 550 feet in 2017:
Toronto - 31
Chicago - 78

Number of Buildings over 168 meters / 550 feet under Construction:
Toronto - 15
Chicago - 6

Number of Buildings over 168 meters / 550 feet Approved or Proposed:
Toronto - 58
Chicago - 12

Number of Buildings over 168 meters / 550 feet by 2032 (if all approved and proposed buildings get built):
Toronto - 104
Chicago - 96

If Toronto's building boom continues and Chicago stays stagnant, then Toronto can probably surpass Chicago's skyline sometime in the 2030s to become the 2nd largest Skyline in North America after New York City.

New York City's skyline will be twice as large as Toronto in 2032.

^ We are extrapolating 15 to 20 years out here. Anything can happen in that time. I'm pretty sure that in 2007 many people would have thought Dubai would have the largest and greatest skyline in the world beyond 2020. It has a great top 5 world class skyline today but from the perspective of all the 2007 hype some can argue that we didn't 100% get what was pitched.

Regarding whether the Toronto skyline will close the gap quantitatively with Chicago's it does seem more like a 'when' rather than an 'if'. That said, how did you come up with the year 2032? 15 years seems like an awful long time to get buildings at the proposal stage built. Some won't get built, new ones will get proposed then built, but surely 7-8 years is a more realistic time line?

Btw, using 100m instead of 168m Toronto will have already closed the gap when the current inventory of buildings under construction top out.

100m+ (Built, Under Construction):
Chicago 337
Toronto 336

That's going to be one big cluster at the foot of Yonge Street.
