I know, it's getting embarrassing. People shouldn't be making assumptions or these threads will quickly become unreliable.

Well you have to admit, when this project came out it was 98 floors, and that makes a supertall a given. When it got reduced to 88, that of course changed.

Alright. 98 would indicate 300m or more.

Yup 293m confined. Not a supertall.

Oxford Place (Toronto's other supertall proposal) is now in jeopardy of cancellation too now that a casino has been rejected by Toronto.

I don't get the impression that this is true at all. Apparently, only certain aspects of the project are in jeopardy.

So can we merge this thread with the one in the 'Proposed Skyscrapers' section? We have two threads running simultaneous to each other in different sections.

Anson Kwok - VP of Sales and Marketing for Pinnacle talks about "supertall" status.

1 Yonge could very well be a supertall at 88 stories.

Kwok explained, “If you want to create more employment, more tax dollars for the city, have all the amenities and bells and whistles, and you want everything to be convenient and close to you, then in order to bring that all together, you need to have it be tall.

For us, it’s very location driven. I think in most major cities, location is probably the primary reason to build super tall buildings. In many countries, 88 storeys isn’t even considered super tall,” Kwok explained

No, it's been quiet. I don't expect to hear anything about this one till next year.

So apparently the Tower one has been increased to 96 stories and 303m... anyone know if this is true or not?? A third supertall for Toronto would be freakin awesome.

Well, I guess this now moves into Proposed Supertalls! Third one planned at the moment for Toronto, with two more on hold for the moment.

Being a staunchly pragmatic place, when Toronto started building 300m+ it was always going to build a whole slew of them. We've been inching towards a reality where 300m makes a lot of economic sense. I suspect we'll see a lot of proposals in the 300-350m range. What we won't see are 400m+ proposals. Toronto will only build those when forced to.
