Ceasers rendition seems to differ from Oxfords, it has the hotels connected bya bridge. Wonder how that will play out?

oxfords renders of the casino portion were placeholders, just as you can see placeholders for oxfords portion at the back of ceaser's renders.

Damn, those towers are almost blocking the view from the CN tower.

In fact, the old Toronto used to be called "York" before Toronto was ever suggested.

That new render is ******* amazing, by the way.

I couldn't agree more. The CN Tower should remain solitary. That's one of the main reasons I think it belongs as one of the ten best skylines in the world.

I disagree. The buildings fill a gap in the skyline. CN Tower looks so tall compared to its surroundings that these buildings level the advantage visually.

Yeah, I think it's good theyre finally filling in the gaps. The Cn tower is nice by itself, but Its about time It connects to the rest of the skyline.

Everyone will get used to the location, sooner or later. It'll grow on many people (imo)

. I'm definitely not opposed to anything tall around the CN Tower, I think it's exactly what Toronto needs, and one of my biggest gripes has always been the CN Tower eclipsing the skyline. All they need is to be clad in some sexy dark blue über reflective glass.

This may seem like an idiotic question, but are these the work of Foster?
