i think they just said that its the same height as the original (205m)so it doesnt grab nimbys and negative media attention and gets moved along quickly.this project has a huge trickle down effect to the city on many levels
and would move toronto up on the world class ladder.

It's already been noted many places that 675' is the top of the last occupied floor. So the tower is at least 750'... subject to the the inevitable streeeetch that happens in T-Dot.

If Bloor east were the same size as Scotia I'd be so happy. Sophisticated design. However, i can't believe they're putting 80 story 223 metre tower in the heart of midtown. What a joke! There building stuff twice the size in freakin Nashville. I am so ashamed of this country. That sort of height of building should be going up in a small town like Ottawa for godsakes!!

I agree that there is an illogical and unwarranted aversion to height at the Ontario Municipal Board when it comes to Toronto. Bloor and Yonge needed scale, and 1 Bloor East falls a bit short. 300+ metres would be more suitable to anchor this intersection. Some would say the most important intersection in the country.

This aside, my primary concern is the quality and design of the building. The latest render is a big disappointment relative to the one produced prior. Hopefully, this building will go through another think-through. At present, it looks like an entirely uninspiring residential block. This is an important site, it should get an iconic building.

Looks like it will, all of these additions depicted in the pic are approved, half of them are already under construction.

223 metres. This is a complete waste of space on such a significant corner. I'll be hibernating till we get another 300m+!!

Does anyone have any news on the AURA tower that was proposed for that parking lot south of College Park? The last I heard was that the OMB turned it down, and another proposal was being submitted.

AURA was the best of all of Toronto's proposed/approved developments. It was exactly the type of building Toronto needed. Bold, powerful, exciting, stylish yet still maintaining sophistication, and the timeless conservatism Toronto is known for.

I'm loving those renderings, and that is exactly the shot in the arm that the Distillery District needs. It needs to be packed full of people like it deserves. Are the buildings actually tilted?!??
