As isaidso mentioned, the market cooled off in what has been called a "soft landing", which is to say it slowed down but there is still a lot of activity, still a lot of people moving to Toronto, and still new projects being announced. Here is a rendering of what our waterfront will look like if the projects being built and planned are all built:

Far from building the most, but considering the devastating hit Los Angeles took during the real estate collapse and the Great Recession, these are exciting times for Angelinos:

the tallest under construction:

Wilshire Grand




888 Olive:





Some of the taller approved Proposals:


10000 Santa Monica



Hyatt Century City



Columbia Square



Vermont Towers



Century City Center



Hollywood Millennium Towers



And of course this amazing bridge, the Sixth Street Viaduct

Looks like some very promising projects in LA. I have to say I like the design of the Willshire Grand.

These are actually u/c and should be close to topping out (at least the shorter one).

The Millennium Hollywood Towers don't have a final design yet. Most likely they'll have to be shortened to satisfy the NIMBYs (even some SSC forumers argue they're too tall for the area), but they should still be a decent size.

Capitol Records being overshadowed?!?! ¡No me digas!

I agree the Wilshire really looks great. Wonder what the first movie will be to show it being blown up. Independence Day 2?


It seems like Toronto is the city most oft to be forgotten as a really big city. Even I am guilty of this.

I snapped this photo downtown today, in an area that had practically nothing that you see here 10-15 years ago:



This street, for example, hadn't a thing on it just those few years ago:

Agree. NF gets over looked, but there are some interesting proposals there. These 2 will look spectacular atop the cliff if the rendering is anything to go by.

Well, as long as people think Toronto stole all the cranes, that leaves Miami off the suspect list! Down here, the construction crane is the state bird again!

It does look rather fishy as none of the data bases suggest anything close to that amount of construction in Panama City. Notice he titled it 'buildings under construction' not 'high rise buildings under construction'.

Emporis isnt as up to date as it was a few years ago even...I live in san jose, ca and follow building news out here pretty closely.....san Francisco is going through a major boom. According ro wikipedia there are 10 buildings under construction over 350 feet! And an article I read somewhere counted like 2 dozen cranes sowntown. A simple google of the question repeats that Toronto looks like our winner...and from a layover in Toronto a few years ago. I have ro say there were cranes in every cluster of highrise visible. And to give my city credit we have 2 high rise projects started and more to come

There are actually currently 19 projects under construction near the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco right now. Here is a great video




And this is a fairly current picture of San Francisco's skyline minus the new construction around city hall and Rincon Towers
