Richmond Adelaide III was cancelled and never build

That said, caltrane74 already gave me his answer "It's big....really really big. I like big."

Of course with the demographic on this board, I'm not too sure if he was still talking about skyscrapers.
Don't worry Jack,

There is nothing homosexual in my post!

I want to make sure if you mean Richmond-Adelaide Centre II and Richmond-Adelaide Centre II will not build, cancel it

Richmond-Adelaide Centre III, I never heard before and who did say it?

Perfect shot to see its location in relation to Scotia Plaza and the rest of the financial cluster. If you look closely, it's just right in front of the Scotia Plaza (red building) with the red and white crane. Trump Toronto (280m) will be right beside Scotia Plaza.

Something that is quite amazing is the underground city beneath the CBD. If you stand stationary down there at 4pm, the sea of humanity walking by is overwhelming. The sound of thousands of expensive shoes hitting the marble for 45 minutes straight is a sound I've never heard anywhere else. It would have made a great opening sequence for the movie 'American Psycho' which was filmed in this area.

I think that first render is missing a few floors. Maybe not, but it just looks it.

So true! Great reference to American Psycho btw. I loved how they panned up the TD Centre throughout the movie. I was thinking to myself "damn Mies really did build the exact same towers everywhere, including the plaza"

BCE, BCE2 and 1 King West look like they're all one big, nasty tower in this pic.

Wouldn't that be Phase 3? I was under the impression that Phase 2 would be directly east of Phase 1.
