Just went through the whole thread and there have been some truly amazing pics posted by forumers.

I love how Cityplace is greatly extending Toronto's traditonal CBD.

BTW Does Cityplace include any mid-rise to tall office buildings @ this stage? - or @ least any planned? What about entertainment facilities such as cinemas, theatres etc?

A model of Signature Tower HERE

all i know is that Montage is under construction. About 430 feet. THe most different of the them all.
Harbour view estates tower 1 is built, 2 is being contructed. About 460 feet.
Harbour view estates tower 3 is in sales.
N1 is under construction. N2 is in sales. All close to 400 feet.

Anyone know how many buildings in city place are built, under construction and are going to be built.

I think they built or builiding most of the bigger ones expect signature and they are smaller towers left. I think.

Offices - No, which is one of my critiques of the project, but it does make the traditional skyline view (from the lake) look extended and good.

4 of the completed cityplace buildings located on front street are a hop and a skip way from the entertainment district. The rest is further away. Nothing major is planned, except for some smaller scale retail.

It shows what going with city place. Its going full steam ahead.

7 builings are complete.
Harbour View Estates - Tower 1 41 stories Completed
Apex - West Tower 108m 36 stories Completed
Optima 103m 34 stories Completed
Matrix - East Tower 95m 32 stories Completed
Apex - East Tower 83m 28 stories Completed
Matrix - West Tower 83m 28 stories Completed
Harbour View Estates - Lofts 7 stories Completed

7 are under Construction
Harbour View Estates - Tower 2 153.4m 49 stories Construction
Harbour View Estates - Tower 3 36 stories Construction
Harbour View Estates - Tower 4 26 stories Construction
West One 148m 49 stories Construction
Montage 49 stories Excavation
N1 125m 42 stories Construction
The Gallery 8 stories Construction

8 are proposed
Signature 217.5m 69 stories Proposed
Block 26W - Tower 1 122m 40 stoires Proposed
Block 29 - Tower 1 115m 38 stories Proposed
Luna - Tower 1 38 stories Proposed
Block 26W - Tower 2 65m 22 stories Proposed
Block 29 - Tower 2 65m 22 stories Proposed
Luna - Tower 2 18 stories Proposed
Neo 15 stories Proposed


I got 22 buildings but i am missing N2.

Out of the proposed ones which one is getting close to getting started?
Most of the big ones are built or under construction. So i think they will build the ones under 40 stories first then do Signature last.
My favourite is Signature. It will look massive because nothing will come close to its height like Residences of Collage place-1.

Well really some of the ones that are constructed are really almost built.

At this rate Signature should come out soon.

there are no office buildings because it is supposed to be a residential development. i would like to see more street level retail and restaurant activity however.

I guess it's supposed to be a quiet area in downtown Toronto, with little action etc... people can go to the nearby districts such as the Entertainment District if that's what they're after.

Cityplace is almost surreal in how calm it is, and modern, and... clean and minimalist.

.... and will basically isolate itself the rest of downtown. But I hope it turns out better streetlevel wise than the condos around the ACC.

Lord Mandeep's information is incorrect as far as what is under construction and what is complete. I thought I would clarify with a couple documents.
Firstly is a graphical document which IS NOT 100% ACCURATE. Especially considering tower design, however up until this point all of the towers that have been constructed have been the same design. West One, N, and Montage are all different designs than what is shown here.

Titles shown in RED are COMPLETED
Titles shown in YELLOW are U/C/sales
Titles shown in BLUE are proposed/sales

Hope this clears up a lot of discrepencies.

I have no idea why some people are so pessimistic about this project. Why would anyone assume it will seal itself off from the rest of downtown or become a low rental housing project?? Wishful thinking for naysayers. It is bringing thousands of people into the core, and will do wonders for the entire downtown, particularily Chinatown, King East, King West, etc... and will finally make old Fort York accessible and useable, and enjoyed. Would it have been
better to have left it as a golf driving range? Now, if the entire downtown core
were like this, threatening a version of Hong Kong, then I would heartily campaign against it. But it isn't... we have all our beautiful neighbourhoods
with mixed useage, and domestic scale residential. There is room for a project
like this in Toronto of 2006, and I think there are a great many cities who
would be happy to have this happening in an area that was incredibly underused. The very fact this is happening points to how healthy downtown
Toronto is.

My beefs with it are pretty simple (I think):

First, it is off the grid as far as I am concerned (I know some people don't agree with this). It has no north/south connections with the city other than Spadina. And the east/west connections are poor at best. Find me an off grid development in Toronto that has been successful. I can't think of one.

Second, it does not have mixed use. These are homes, and a few shops. There is not a single office complex. All the good neighbourhoods in this town are integrated.

Third, the architecture sucks in my opinion. This is debatable. Hopefully it improves with the new ones going up.

Fourth, Spadina is a freaking highway on ramp at this point.

I agree that it needed to be developed, but would have preferred that the property was parceled off; more connections were put in place, and developed piecemeal like the rest of town.

I've never seen something so close to downtown, yet so far away. The reasons that downtown Toronto is healthy are in contrast with this form of development.

Well, all we can do is just wait til it is done, and then make an assessment. I still
say there is room for a project like this, as having that land available was a unique
situation. There is no fear that other neighbourhoods are going to be razed to make
room for new CityPlaces.

Simple. It, from the surface, appears like a Miami style gated condo community, only with no physical gate (or water obstacle).

No one will be attracted to the area except for residents, hence most people will just drive through it, instead of being apart of the rest of downtown where people go to mingle/shop/be entertained. Such prime land, such a waste of use being so single purpose.

Why, then would people who don't live at Cityplace, would venture down there? What purpose would they have?
