Toronto's Great Big Boom!!!

Here's a list of projects going on in Toronto. All the projects that are completed are completed from 2002 and after. Most of the projects are highrise (12 stories and over) but I've added in a few mid and rlow rises too.

Emporis' stats for Toronto are:
1608 Completed
122 Proposed
110 Approved
51 Under construction
1 On Hold
1 Under Reconstruction

Toronto-The Great Big Boom!

that is a very impressive list. It would be great to see the difference between today's skyline and the skyline in 10 years.

even toronto's suburb Mississauga is having a huge skyline, when i came to Mississauga back in 1997, there were just a few scrapers on hurontario road, but today its a dense jungle.

Whenever i drive into Toronto (which is once a month or so) im always shocked by the number of cranes i see. Its not just limited to one area of the city either every where there is buildings going up.

was in Toronto during the easter break, I too was amazed by all the cranes I saw everywhere. It's not just downtown, it's scarborough, north york and etobicoke too. Condos are going up everywhere. It's good to see that the former suburbs are embracing infill.

I'm not dismissing the amount of construction going on in Toronto, but almost all the buildings are residentials. You can count on one hand the amount of commercial office buildings going up.

The only office building going up, according to Skyscraperpage.com's top 25 building's under construction is the Canada Life Center, which is around 300 feet.

It's also happening in the US in Southern California and the Northeast. I read that in Santa Barbara, California, only 4% of the population can afford to buy the average priced house. It's basic economics. If there is no one that can afford the higher and higher priced houses or condos, then the inflated prices will collapse. Hopefully, it will not "pop" like a bubble, but just gradually lower in price, otherwise the shock effect could effect the US and Canadian economies dramatically.

^ Whats wrong with residentials buildings, they add to an area density which brings alot of amenities to some areas which otherwise are dead during parts of the day. Anyway i find condo's more attractives than the current group of commercial buildings toronto has.

Nothing is wrong with residential buildings. I love them. We are going through a mini-boom in residential highrises here in Atlanta right now. My only point is that the building boom in Toronto is in only one area, residentials, and not in commercial buildings. Obviously no developer thinks he can make a profit by putting up a commercial building, and he/she is probably right.
