This means that Toronto is currently on the start of a major construction boom for the city, congrats for the city for getting a construction boom.

Getting a boom? Toronto is in year 10 of its construction boom. It's been the fastest growing city outside Asia for many years up until around 2015 when New York pulled ahead.

The tallest one being around the same height as Aura.

-8 Elm Street
80 stories at approximately 850 feet (Once again close to Aura's height)

A concern that city council could raise could be related density around Yonge (Dundas to College stretch). More to come to on this development in the next few coming months.
8 Elm Street is in Mississauga, right?

No it's a block south of Gerrard/Yonge in downtown Toronto so a stone's throw away from AURA.

The preliminary rendering looks impressive. In the next few months we may see more revised renderings. I love the blue glass and that there are no balconies. Hopefully the proposal will be submitted to the city soon. From all the recent supertall proposals in Toronto, this one looks the best.

The Yonge Dundas/College stretch if all developments go ahead could very well be the new tallest cluster in the city. I will not be surprised if the Delta Chelsea redevelopment loses the third tower and transfers that density into 2 towers instead of 3.

You could be right about the Eaton Chelsea site and that this might become the new tallest cluster. The lack of balconies is a welcomed design choice; one I hope to see more of in Toronto.

I attended the public consultation meeting. The public reception of the project seemed to be quite positive. Aside from a few issues of potential issues of sewers and waste collection, the project has moved in the right direction. Overall, it was a good event, and had a chance to meet to the architects as well.
I already had a chance to talk to Kristyn Wong Tam about other nearby developments, eg Delta Chelsea and 2 Carleton. The overwhelming concern has been too much density and traffic on the road. I wouldn't be surprised if Delta Chelsea loses one tower and goes the supertall route as well.

Good to hear some feedback. More demands on sewers, the electricity grid, etc are valid but traffic on the road doesn't seem to be as big an issue as some assume. People who live downtown rarely drive or take TTC. The extra traffic is almost all on the sidewalk.

We'll need wider sidewalks on lots of our downtown streets. It's people outside the downtown that strain the TTC and roads.

Are you talking about the Chelsea Gardens Tower 1 and 2?

2 Carlton (2 towers)and the Delta Chelsea site (3 towers) are separate proposals.

Chelsea Gardens is a separate proposal just across the street from the site of YLS residences. So far the Chelsea gardens proposal has had 3 revisions.

The first proposal had at heights of 80, 74, 50, and 46 storeys.
The second proposal had at heights of 50, 75, and 86 storeys.
The most recent proposal has heights of 50, 88, and 88 storeys. I believe the prosed height of the 88 storey towers is around 285 metres.

It all depends how much density the city is willing to allow in that area and contingent on the units the developer wishes to sell. My guess is the proposal will end up being revised to include 2 towers and the 3rd could be scrapped. It won't be surprising if the developer goes for less density and opts for 2 supertalls.

Assuming that the number of units remains the same, is there a benefit from an urban planning pov of going from 3 towers to 2 taller towers?

From an urban planning pov, there are several benefits of going the 2 tower route. The area is already very congested and 2 towers will use a smaller footprint. That makes issues of vehicles going in and out of the corridor easily. Better for road and public safety. This is part of the reason why neighbouring 8 elm street was rejected by city council. Despite appealing to the OMB, that project will still be rejected.
