1) 1-7 Yonge (320 m)


2) Mirvish+Gehry Toronto (305 m)


3) The One (304 m)

NYC was so quiet for a long time, but it is awoke! It will eventually look like every future movie it has ever been portrayed in.

Here is what Edmonton's skyline might look like with the proposed 80 storey Alldritt Tower.
Keep in mind that Edmonton already has 3 new tallest skyscrapers under construction in it's skyline that are not visible in the photo below.

That just looks silly. Reminds me of the Devon Tower in OKC, but even more out of place.

That's a meaty inventory of buildings. Btw, SSP has the 100-200m count at 429, 438, or 444 (depending on whether one uses roof height, official height, or pinnacle height). 463, 473, or 479 if you count Mississauga.

Another tower projected to reach 457m, the tallest in Latin America.


A complex with two 260+m towers.


A Trump project consistent of two 340m towers.

Should look something like this when complete:

Swanston Central looks like a huge, square turd. Im sorry to see this city suffer such horrid "design" (or lack thereof...).
