September 30th from Menkes. A huge pour is scheduled for this Sunday - details about the pour:

"5000 cubic metres of concrete ordered for this on Sunday. That's over 400 large (12M) truck loads" - information courtesy of SkyJacked.

A little rendering of what it might look like from the Toronto Islands:

Now that is a lot of concrete! These are going to add to an already impressive skyline.

Now lets just hope Toronto can get a new super tall in the mix sooner than later.

Toronto is a painfully conservative city that's being dragged kicking and screaming into the world of 300-800m buildings. Believe it or not, even 200m buildings receive huge resistance in many places in the downtown core. They happen because city planners reluctantly realize that they have to approve some of them. Sometimes I feel like they'd limit everything to 150m if they could.

It definitely seems that way. Ten York was chopped from 75 stories to 65 stories in Southcore for no apparent reason. In a core where there should be no limits, the city sets limits. Our planning staff is afraid to see Toronto grow. While other cities are soaring high (Miami, Jersey City, Los Angeles building supertalls), our city continues to twiddle their thumbs because of a select few morons playing god.

it was chopped by the developers not the planners.

There is a no limit zone in Toronto, though it coincidentally has almost 0 buildable plots in it, and portions still have to follow shadowing restrictions. Trump is the only tower built in the area so far this boom.

Whatever the explanation/reason given the result is the same: buildings have limits to how tall they can be practically everywhere. I also find the policy that we must be bathed in sunlight baffling. I actually seek out the shady side of the street on a sunny day and it seems that side of the street is just as busy as the other. Besides, the streets don't suddenly become uninviting places when the sun goes down. Have the anti-shadow people never been outside after 7pm?

So many projects close to grade or just past. The city is going to look/feel significantly denser come spring time.
