Nice.

Here are some I took from the islands on July 31. The pair under construction now are Luna. I should update the first page.

This is shaping up to be the best of all the City Place towers! That's a killer condo connecting the two towers 29 floors up.

Looks like no change in glass on this one. I had hoped to see something different. It's moving along very quickly though.

I'm not a big fan either. I'm hoping this area will evolve over time and become more interesting and mixed use.

I'm assuming so. Parade is the only one with the connector between 2 towers. I am looking forward to that and Signature, but the rest doesn't interest me so much. I was going over the list of highrises here and in the Toronto section. Casa, Bloor Street Neighbourhood, and some other smaller ones aren't represented. Do you think they should be added?

Despite the obvious shortfalls of this project, the real glory will be in the replication of what has made the pacific place development so spectacular, a sea of glass that is beautiful and reflects the sky in a multitude of ways throughout the day. Toronto needs more of this type of natural beauty to remind poeple that buildings aren't the only thing in a city, and at least these towers will be placed around a large green gathering space. I'm beginning to come around to this development, though the earlier towers along front street were certainly worrying. As a whole it will relieve Toronto of what is at least one ugly area around its downtown core. If only they could figure out what to do with the areas around the mouth of the Don River, for which the re-development plan looks horrible, they may actually realize their waterfront development and become a really pretty city. Good luck to you Toronto!
