Beekman has my favorite design, so I can't wait to see how this turns out.

Why looks the right side of the tower like an enlarged copy of the Hines Tower in Berlin?

One Yonge is another supertall.

If Oxford Place comes back from the dead, it will be 5 (That proposal includes 2 supertalls)

I almost wrote "I wish I could wank in that." which also happens to be true.

This claddig better be another color than silver. White could be nice, like Gehry's IAC building.

^that is a long dead proposal.

Toronto has a lot of stuff getting built and proposed though.. Its been a crazy 10 years of construction and it looks like we are going to continue the construction for another 10..

You're right that the Oxford twins are shelved but if things keep going as they have I wouldn't be surprised to see it re-surface in some form on that same site. It's going to be re-developed, it's more a matter of 'when'. One Yonge, The One, and Mirvish make 3 super talls.

Toronto is an awfully pragmatic place; height is always dictated by the economics of it. Toronto doesn't build height for the sake of height. We seemed to have breached that 300m benchmark now. If the pace of construction continues we'll likely see a slew of super talls proposed. 10 super talls built, U/C, or approved by 2025 wouldn't be out of the question.

What I'm relishing is our first 400m building.
