There's a lot of renderings missing from this thread... X Condos, Crystal Blu, Murano, etc etc. I'd add them but my lucnh break ended 5 minutes ago.

I'm from Cardiff (Wales, UK) and I love Toronto! We have always had good transport links with Canada, in particular Toronto, and I feel as though it's my second home. I'm not sure what it's like over there but here it feels like Toronto is now the place to be in N.America and it seems to be catching the likes of L.A, New york etc etc.

PS - I was wondering, is now a good time to buy/invest in property in Canada (in particular Toronto)? I know a lot about the housing market here in the UK and what is likely to happen but in Canada I know next to nothing. Are you guys currently experiencing a boom (like we did a few years ago - for example in Cardiff, a lot of developments were built much like Toronto is experiencing now... obviosuly on a smaller scale of course)?

Yes, we're experiencing a boom. I'd say there's been a boom going on now for about 5 or more years. Part of the reason is that the Toronto area increases in population by just over 100,000 people each year so obviously there needs to be enough development happening to keep up.

Whereas most cities experience a bust at the end of their boom/bubble, I don't expect to see that happen here. The last cycle we crashed pretty hard and as a result our housing and financial industries are very conservative. It's extremely rare to see a project move to construction without being at least 75% sold. Between that and our consistent population increases the housing market should be fairly stable for the foreseeable.

agreed, i dont think we will see a bust/crash, but more of a plateau at the end of the boom

I hope they redesing the festival tower, it looks to average. This is a project that should deserve a good architect because it will be seen by a lot by tourists during the Film Festival.
