It's the world's tallest, thinnest building!

With an 11-1 height-to-width ratio!

Unfortunately this is probably untrue.
Highcliff in Hong Kong is more than 800 ft. tall with the widest section of floor being only 60ft. This yields a height-to-width ratio of almost 14-1.

1 King is pretty nice though.

seems that they are filling all the space beetwen the lake shore blvd, and the downtown core, soon the gardinier will be the bottom of a hi rise canyon.

Ironic, be surrounded by way taller structures when you are on an already elevated road

yep the condo boom has been going on for about 8 years now, lets hope it continues for a while longer. It has increased density all around the city and has brought the benefits that go along with it.


This map might help outsides see where projects are going on, the central 20% of the former city of toronto would be downtown on the project list.


^population of the city is ~2.5 million

and for outer suburbs and the rest of the goldernhorse look at

^population of this region is presently 7.5 million
