TORONTO | Cityplace | T/O

Concord Cityplace - 20 Residential Towers - Toronto, ON


The current CityPlace condo development was conceived by Concord Adex developments, the same company that helped revitalize a large section of former Expo 86 lands in Vancouver. Hong Kong magnate Li Ka Shing is known to have large shareholding in Concord Adex. At 45 acres and 7500units, the $1.5 billion Cityplace project is the largest residential development ever attempted in Toronto.

Very amazing, but the fact that all of the buildings look the same is very boring and ugly imo, and will ruin the toronto skyline. Would be a very nice place to live nonetheless.

WOW.

The designs in my opinion are a bit bland. Boring.. maybe just a little bit. 1 Storey podiums... But hell, twenty of them within a smallish area is amazing. It won't ruin the skyline. In fact, this will do wonders for the weak skyline shot from the islands. Surely it is Toronto's mini-Vancouver.

Cityplace can sell their towers instantly. It's like magic. The towers are released and then sold instantly. Typically construction starts immediately. It really boggles the mind.

i think this is great that each individual area in toronto is getting its own style of buildings. This just adds to the great variety of buildings and styles in toronto. for this area... cityplace type buildings are perfect for it... other areas of toronto, these buildings probably wouldn't work.

Here is a pic showing the 9 cityplace towers completed.
To the top of the picture across the street 5 more cityplace towers are under construction. There is still 6 more to begin construction.

9 - COMPLETED
5 - UNDER CONSTRUCTION
6 - AWAITING SALES

WOW! Best Cityplace thread ever I love this development, so I'm glad to see it on here IN ITS OWN THREAD

Except.. the HVE (Harbour View Estates') podiums are too short... the smaller two towers in this project have nice 2-storey ones though Perfect pedestrian scale, IMO on those ones...

I'll add my Cityplace photos later... noone really has seen them... and they show it from ground level up close

It's nice that that area is getting developed but I find the designs a little boring. Streetlevel is nice but I still think there should be more podium to the towers, but this really won't be extending downtown's streetlife to the west so I guess it's nice.

I wonder how traffic will be in this area once everything is completed, traffic is already bad in this area. Also now that the Front St. extension doesn't look like it will be done I can't help to wonder how the traffic is going to be in this area long term.
