TORONTO | Convention Centre Redevelopment | ??? | Pro

Not much is known about this proposal at this point, but it was in the rumour mill for a while.
This is the Toronto Metro Convention Centre Redevelopment. This whole proposal is massive as it incorporates the long awaited Toronto Casino, a brand new convention centre while building over rail tracks.
The two office towers look huge. For reference, the building that the "convention centre" sign is blocking is around 160m tall.

Copied from the second article:

"Oxford Place Facts
Developer and owner: Oxford Properties Group
Architect and Planner: Foster + Partners
Location: Front Street, bounded by Simcoe Street and Blue Jays Way
Total area: 11 acres with 7.35 million SF of master planned mixed-use development
Elements: * 1.1 million SF of Convention Centre
* 2.5 million SF of Office
* 1 million SF of Retail
* 600,000 SF of Residential
* 450,000 SF of Casino and Amenity Space
* 1.7 million SF of Hotel and Amenity Space
* 4,000 Parking Stalls On-Site
* 5.5 acres of public parkland, cooperating with neighboring stakeholders
Timeline: Contingent on City of Toronto support and Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation operator selection process. Oxford will be in a position to submit a rezoning application shortly after the necessary decisions are made."

Always a lot of development in that area, but never this much.
I'm not gonna say something about the design, i'll wait for better renders.

We shouldn't post in the super tall section till heights are confirmed. Haven't people learned from the Holt Renfrew and Gehry proposals to hold off? Besides, there's already a thread for this is the proposed skyscraper section.

+1

The designs are placeholders until detailed plans with heights are released. For now, the thread in Proposed Skyscrapers will suffice: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1554160
