I think it's impossible for Toronto to run out of space. , it's like a baby never satisfied.

I believe that that is the spire of St. James' Cathedral (1853).

According to the colour-coded list, the Parkway Forest project is still alive. Last I heard, it was quashed by nimbys. Also, in the same area, what happened to the two dozen or so towers that were supposed to go up next to Canadian Tire at Leslie/Sheppard?

Ahh yes, thought it was on the new subway line. Good place to have a high rise development especially since it's currently underutilized.

20 000 seat soccer stadium at exhibition place has been finalised. I think its great Toronto is finally getting a soccer stadium, and also the fact that its downtown rather than in york university.
