Your update has arrived!!!

Well I went all over downtown today snapping pictures and skateboarding. I picked prolly the worst day (weather wise), but hey, it was better than spending the day indoors, rain wasn't that bad anyways. Some of them are blurry because of the stupid plexiglass covering the little windows.

10/18/07




























Hope this doesn't explode your computer with all the images!

The Trump Toronto thread is in the Toronto section. I don't think there is one over here... There is also another one in the supertall section which has the old height of 324m. You can create one here or post in the Toronto section.

UD2, Though I love your quote, I have to disagree with your choice, I for one am a much bigger fan of the RBC development then this box. Typical Brookfield, no imagination, and even less brains. I guess we can all thank them for the fact that there is less office space needed in the city, after all, they effectively killed our Mining Sector last year with their ill-timed exit from Falco, and the following chain of events. Cheers..

I think Telus Tower will look amazing and so will 151 Front, both are office towers. I think BA is a little bland but still has a classy look to it. I still don't know about RBC Tower but i think once standing beside the Ritz it will look amazing! Every coner of Toronto is building up nicely, we are in a condo building boom and an office building boom with 151 Front, Telus, BA, RBC, MaRS II, Richmond Adelaide III, and MLS. All will look great when completed and so will the many condo towers being constructed, approved or still in the planning stages.

Actually 4 under construction (RBC, Bay-Adelaide, MARS and Telus), but a hell of a lot of other projects most would find more interesting that B-A.

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.

Great progress!

Looks like it's almost at the height of the original stump:
