I didn't talk to you like you were stupid. You said that you thought historical meant that something important happened, like a battle occurred there. The meaning of historical is much broader than that, so I suggested that you check the definition of the word historical. That's not stupidity, that's ignorance. There is nothing wrong with not knowing. Stupidity is getting embarrassed and defensive when someone tries to point you in the right direction.

Difference between historical and heritage? No thanks. You're on your own this time. It's not the lengthy delay in your reply that requires an apology.

The renders look great, but as others have mentioned, the zoning of this area should not be ignored. This is supposed to be where our CBD expands to. First Maple Leaf Square was permitted, now this. If the city keeps this up by allowing condo towers here, where will the office towers go when demand dictates more towers built? This is the last adjacent available land since the CBD is hemmed in on all sides by areas where buildings are of historical significance. They aren't going to be bulldozed. Besides 'Lower Toronto', the CBD is practically out of space already. That is why it was set aside for office towers. Allowing most of this land to be developed for condos isn't good long term planning and ignores what it has been intentionally zoned for.

I heard on UT they're planning to demolish Cumberland Terrace to make way for a couple 400 footers with a fairly big podium. I personally would like to see a 700 footer and 100 footer instead. There's no final rendering as it's unclear who the developer actually is. Don't expect any ground breaking until late 2009.

18 York

Well, it's not the tallest new building in Toronto (only 26 storeys), but in today's environment, a welcome new office tower..(formerly listed as proposed in isaidso's list above)

PricewaterhouseCoopers leases 280,000 square feet to launch bcIMC’s sustainable office development at 18 York Street in Toronto


TORONTO, August 7, 2008 – British Columbia Investment Management
Corporation (bcIMC) today announced that PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has signed a long-term lease for approximately 280,000 square feet of office space at 18 York Street, kicking-off bcIMC’s first targeted LEEDŽ Gold development in downtown Toronto.
Designed by the award-winning firm, KPMB Architects, 18 York will total 650,000 square feet and rise 26-storeys on the north-west corner of York Street and Bremner Boulevard. This is an emerging area directly south of Toronto’s financial core and one block from Union Station. The building will be developed and managed by GWL Realty Advisors Inc. acting on behalf of bcIMC.

Targeting a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold
standard, as specified by the Canada Green Building Council, 18 York will
feature state-of-the-art operating and life safety systems including: rain water collection system, Enwave’s deep lake central cooling supplemented by a thermal storage system, 18” raised floor, and enhanced indoor air quality.

The building’s advanced systems are designed to provide tenants with meaningful operating savings through the efficient use of energy and office space flexibility.

“We are delighted that PwC will anchor our next development in Toronto,”
commented Gwen-Ann Chittenden, spokesperson for bcIMC. “With this project, bcIMC and PwC are helping to advance sustainable office developments that are designed to benefit tenants, employees, and the environment.”

PwC will move its national headquarters and downtown Toronto locations to the new state-of-the-art building beginning the fall of 2011.

David Forster, PwC’s Greater Toronto Area Managing Partner, noted that, “18
York appealed due to its location, access to public transit, and leading green
design features, all of which support PwC’s environmental objectives. Our aim is to create a truly unique PwC work space that meets the diverse and long-term needs of the firm, both for our people and our business. A big part of meeting that objective will be to engage a significant number of our staff for their ideas and feedback on a range of design options.”
Construction on the site will commence this fall and is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2011. Additional information on Toronto’s newest development can be found at www.18york.com
