Spire is to the far left.
You know, I never took the time to evaluate this properly but... THAT'S INSANE!

Very slender and sleek. Great example of Toronto architecture.

When is Spire expected to top-out?

If the bright green sign means it's the 35th floor than Spire seems to be topped out!

For such a tall building,the cluster makes it look tiny. This is what New York or HK must be like.

Heh, nice pic but unfortunately not mine. It was taken by a member at Flickr.

This one is mine though, taken on the 11th. It defintely isn't the greatest picture because the weather that day was absolute crap.
