Whoa, too bad that that Yonge&College Street Building wasn't built, it would look great I think.

I think as a Torontonian, I have mixed feelings about Eaton's College Street. Sure, the tower would of looked great but I feel it would be too overwhelming since it takes over an entire city block. Today the 7s Carlu building shares the block with a huge parking lot (for future development), a 30s or so office building and 2 U/C 52 and 45s condo towers.

This is off-topic. But during the 70's there was a 140s, 600 m+ tower proposed for the site of eaton's college street. It would have been 2200+ ft. tall and the WTB. The design is a bit bland and the communication mass on top is hideous but it would have been huge.

I like the College Park building now as it is, than the vision. Maybe I'm just used to it. The Maryon Building is just ugly. I'd never heard of the Toronto Union Terminal and Commerical Building. Was that to be part of Union station (or the other way around)?

here's a pic of College Park today:

For the 1876 centennial exhibition Philadelphia was going to build a new 1000 foot tower but sadly they ran out of money.

Very interesting topic. I wonder what would have happend if Hitler had one the war (to dreadful to go further) and built his Beriln-opolis. I rmemeber a student at my school built a layout of the city with small models and other things you might find in a redevlopment center. It was very interesting, he got an A.
