At 50 stories the first proposal was to be around 500ft or about 153m, so at 56 stories the taller tower should be around 170m

No, there are three that will be in that height range, although they might be a bit shy of 500ft; I think two of them are planed at 45 stories, and one at 50.

height range...i see where your comming from, they are the parkside village towers and the two 45 story towers as far as I know will not be over 500 ft, infact 5 stories can make a huge difference. But that still leaves the city with 3 500ft+ towers!

It begins! MLS WAS Passed by the City Council.

acording to http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...&page=12&pp=20 (bottom of page)
Quote:
MLS passed its final hurdle yesterday!! Surprised that it hasn't shown up in any of the media... not even the MLS website. Since I hadn't heard anything, I got busy today, and faxed Pam McConnell's assistant, Thomas Davidson. He confirmed that it IS a go, with 2 minor amendments: 1. a requirement to purchase 6 mo metropasses (to mitigate parking/auto issues, I guess)...and 2. some extra space for taxi stands. That's it... all done... IT'S A GO!!!!!!!


They got a height increase a few weeks back to one tower is 186M and other is 174M. Thats 610 feet and 570 feet. The will be huge in that area.

The condo guide says one tower is 90% sold out and the other is 75% sold out, so they will start soon.

So does construction start tomorrow for Ritz Carlton and RBC Centre? Who is going to camp out for the dig?

Make sure to create individual threads for both of these towers, because it will surely annoy everyone else on the international forums. (everyone *hates* Toronto!)
