Should move up the NA list in the next few years

Built / Construction

Metro New York 187 / 7
Chicago 86/ 4
Houston 29/0
Metro Dallas 21/0
Los Angeles 21/0
San Francisco 16/2
Boston 16/0
Metro Atlanta 13/1
Toronto 13/1
Seattle 11/1
Metro Miami 9/14
Philadelphia 9/1
Pittsburgh 9/0
Calgary 9/0


Las Vegas 3/5
but Toronto will hit 32 building over 500+ foot building tower without CN Tower by around 2010? because Trump International Hotel & Tower, One Bloor East, Signature Tower, BCE III, Wellington Square, Richmond-Adelaide Centre II, The Uptown Residences, Festival Tower, Sapphire Tower, Bay-Adelaide Centre West Tower, Bay-Adelaide Centre East Tower, Ritz-Carlton, Shangri-La, Four Seasons Residences, Hummingbird Centre, 20 York Street, Maple Leaf Squuare South Tower & North Tower and Bay-Adelaide Centre North Tower will build but when? and they did approve or not? Toronto will hit over 30 of 500+ foot building tower by 2010?

I agree, I think we may see a least 2 of the commercial buildings completed and may be another under construction out of that list. However, I also think we will see a few more 500ft+ residential buildings added to the list over the next couple years.

there are always unforseen delays, sudden lack of funding, economonic factors and general demand for space drop. 18 new 500 footers in 4 years is not realistic. its just your best case scenario. nonetheless very impressive and worthy of boasting

I dont get why people always have to point out the negatives??? Does it make them feel better? Seriously maybe not all the buildings will get built but IMO i think they will. Live with it people Toronto is a BOOMING city.

Some people do seem threatened by a booming Toronto, and prefer to think of
it in negative terms. It is unlikely they would ever be able to drop the pessimistic
outlook.

I agree...why they feel threatened i cant understand, same with Dubai, with all the stuff going on there people try to diminish its immpressivness by just saying "meh, its only a gigantic theam park"..and while the comment may have some merit its a very pessimistic comment. Then there is the ignorance factor, based on my current knowledge i know that ALLOT of these will get built, but allot of people who dont hang out in the Toronto forums dont know much about the Toronto boom besides the fact that allot of Towers are being proposed, and when they see whats proposed/u.c they have trouble believing it.

god, how arrogant!


I didn't ask if it is realistic to question the boom in toronto. 16-18 new 500fters in 4 years would mean that construction of most of them would have to commence soon. very soon...I just wanted to know if this is the case...


now I understand, why toronto has so many bashers here...
