Your Favorite Skyscrapers/Highrises in Canada

No poll since there are so many of them and we just don't have enough option for all the skyscrapers. So please just post your favorite ones and I will count it manually.

Hard to choose between Royal Bank Plaza, Commerce Courth North, Scotia Plaza, the Royal York, and Toronto-Dominion Centre. I'll go with that grand ole railway hotel.

The Royal York

TD Center is the greatest International Modernist masterpiece, besides the old WTC








I also like First Canadian Place, Royal Bank Plaza and I.M. Pei's Commerce Court. All in Toronto, of course.




If the Bow was less wide looking from the side view I would like it more. But the cladding on that one is great.

I agree. It's one of those buildings you appreciate 100 times more when you're standing in front of it. It's an absolute gem and a timeless design.

TD Centre by far. True Modernist buildings like that never become outdated (at least not from the outside).

So far, there are 3 votes for the Bow and two for the TD.

I still haven't decided my most favorite yet. The Manual life tower in Edmonton could be easily my first choice if it was 100m taller. Standing at just over 150m tall it was built almost 30 years ago with a very clean and timeless design.
