The #'s I have are:

Built: 41 above 400 ft. (14 of those above 500 ft.)
Under Construction: 9 (2)
Demolition/Site Prep/Excavation: 12 (7)
In Sales: 5 (4)
Approved: 3 (3)
Proposed: 16 (8)
Rejected (but appealing) 1 (1)
Office Tower Proposals: 2 (2)
Visions: Upwards of 3, heights unknown

By my count the city has 51 projects in the pipeline (pipeline defined as everything not listed under "built") above 400 ft., and at least 27 of those are above 500 ft.

Yes, good work elliot...the Shangri-La ad circulating in Toronto newspapers is the best skyline vantage point I've seen of Toronto after the traditional one from Centre Island. It's the perfect starting point to represent the new skyline circa 2010.

gbellan: festival tower is the one in front of the Rogers Centre

Aura is the best example of what Toronto needs more of: bold and aggressive. The timid mentality that pervades in Canada is keeping Toronto from taking it's rightful place in the world. Bold aggressive architecture is a needed tonic to counter it.

Bay-Adelaide is a disappointment. One of the last vacant lots in the financial district and they put up a mid sized stump. The CBD doesn't have too many areas it can expand to since it is surrounded by 'protected' areas. This is one site that begs supersized. 1200 feet minimum. It's no surprise that Brookfield is behind this development. They are the poster child for lack of ambition and vision. Look what they did with Noranda-Falconbridge!!! Nothing!!!

Trump is great except for how it is finished at the top. It needs to make a more pronounced statement. Sandwiched between the 2 tallest buildings in Canada, it really needs to be 100 feet taller than it's neighbours with perhaps 2 massive circular (diameter 15 feet) poles extending another 200 feet above the roof height. The anti-climatic little 'hat' they put on top of the building is a major let down.

Uptown is fab, as is Ritz-Carlton. Four Seasons needs to be more glamourous. Toronto is, after all, the global headquarters of this firm.

1 Bloor East needs to be more imposing. This is the busiest intersection in the country. Bold, commercial, to reflect the aspirations of Torontonians.

151 Front East: the tower is great, but the lower Front Street facade is boring crap. It's almost like it is an after thought after doing such a great job thinking through the tower.

I don't understand how an 80 storey building can only be 675 ft, but it is an amazing design. MUCH better than the last one IMO.

The rendering makes it look at least 800 ft. The announced height disappoints me. Also, the podium seems to be much less substantial than the previous render. Hopefully some redesign will be done before anything becomes finalized.
