had no idea we had such a competitor like Melbourne vying with us for skyscraper supremacy. They have us beat on number of tall multi-story buildings with even one at 100. Come on Toronto let's build taller!

Yup, not sure why Dezeen didn't include CIBC Square in that article. Maybe not tall enough with the tallest one only 244 m high?

@Skycandy
I hope they eventually take down those off ramps and rebuild that exit from the DVP so it angles down to grade level right away. It does speed traffic into the core but look at all that valuable land wasted.

is Eureka as ugly as Aura?

It really is a toss up. Eureka is spectacularly ugly whereas Aura is just plain mediocre ugly. Thankfully, Mel also has a lot of gems but I think we may catch up in that department.

The top third of AURA is fine. It's the bottom two-thirds that wrecks it.

I happen to like Eureka. It is very unique. Probably Melbourne's best tower right now.

City of Toronto builds its first shopping mall
Build Toronto said it was necessary to do its own construction to maximize the value of an old TTC car lot.

Nov 23, 2017
Toronto Star Excerpt

They’re typical of the shops in a suburban shopping mall. But the Starbucks, A&W restaurant, nail salon and assorted clothing stores and boutiques gathered just west of the Wilson subway station have an unusual landlord: the City of Toronto.

The Shops at Wilson Station, officially opened on Thursday, is the first — and maybe the only —shopping mall developed entirely by the city’s real estate development firm, Build Toronto.

Typically, Build sells off the city’s surplus property to other developers. The revenue goes into the city’s capital funds to pay for municipal infrastructure.

But the unusual zoning designation as an airport hazard area meant Build needed to act as its own developer to maximize the value of the plot, an old TTC parking lot, said CEO Bill Bryck.

The mall, which sits southeast of Downsview Airport and a few kilometres east of the old Sunrise Propane explosion site, will be sold. But for now, the stores are the city’s tenants.

“We’ve had potential buyers look at it. We haven’t consummated a deal yet,” he said.

The 4.5-acre property has generated about $1.3 million in development charges and will bring in about $800,000 annually in property taxes.

It's not aging well.

Building with step terraces are beautiful but I wouldn't want to live there where upper levels can see whatever you do from above

Buildings with terraces are perfect for waterfront (the gentle rise from water to downtown skyscrapers) and for hilly cities (so they complement the slope of the hills)

Looks ridiculous, especially with gold windows on top...
