only because there are many smaller towers u/c it doesn't automatically mean that a city with 13 500fters has the potential to get 18 more just within 4 years....

Actually, that figure isn't far off. Maybe not 18 started and completed towers in 4 years but I don't see 18 new starts to construction of 500fters or taller to be all that unrealistic here. If I had to take a guess myself, I'd say 15 new 500 footers in 5 years.

Keep in mind when you talk about smaller towers, much if not most of what is going up is in the 350-499ft range.

BCE III, Wellington Square, Richmond-Adelaide Centre II, Bay-Adelaide Centre West Tower, Bay-Adelaide Centre East Tower, and Bay-Adelaide Centre North Tower...

So you're suggesting six 500 foot plus office towers will be built in the next four years?

what has this got to do with smaller tower? The fact is Most of those towers will be built, And yes the city does have that potential, 3 of those 500 footers are already u/c, Trump is set to break ground hopefully this summer, Ritz and wellington square are gaurenteed to go up (ritz could even beat Trump) Tha BA center will go up this time..other wise we will have a seriouse cramping problem in office space in the next few years..and the lost goes on..if you've actually bothered to read allot of the thread and learn the facts then you would understand.

Richmond-Adelaide Center II amd BCE III are debatable on weather or not they will go up, as for Wellington Square and the 3 BA towers..they will all go up within the next 4 years, and plus the BA towers are not Just office space, they are mixed use towers. Another major developer is expected to announce plans for another office tower soon to (200m+) So if he is sugesting that then hes not to far off, we could very well get 5 (6 on the optimistic side) Office Towers in the next 4 years.

now I understand, why toronto has so many bashers here...
So why do people bash a great city like Toronto then? Because of the forumers? I doubt it! People are jealous of Toronto. I am not saying you are, but you have no idea how many people bash Toronto and always voice their negativity against the city instead of just saying something positive. I have never gone out and bashed a city, i dont understand why people have it out for Toronto.

Now I know ROCP mean Residences of College Park then I didn't talk about "under construction" and I was talking about "approved" or "proposed" but it's cool

If is true that Toronto will hit over 30+ building with 500+ foot without CN Tower then I really can't wait to see what Toronto look like in 2015 for sure ... 9 years go ahead ... I should say " hey doc, do you have a time machine and can I travel to 2015? "

Sorry bud, but you're way off. That is not the new official rendering of Sapphire. It was just something Elliot had thought of and cassius had put in 3-d. I think he does mind that you post it here also. If you read an earlier post in the topic he said to NOT post them anywhere else.
