Toronto will always be the biggest city in Canada. Calgary just recently broke one mil, and Montreal, though closer in size, is not growing as fast as TO, as far as i know.

Calgary is growing really fast but to ctach Toronto it would need to maintain that for a few decades and Toronto itself must stop growing.

Uhmm.. any chance to get this back onto the Toronto boom? It is sort of like debating when Miami is going to get larger than New York City.

I hate to have to explain this again, but city council does not cancel projects. They were rejected by the planers(eventually council too) and the developers will simply have to redesign.

"pardon if im uninformed but why a 30m height limit??"



protection of one of Toronto's most successful restaurant strips

concern with allowing M5V to rise the planning department may be obligated to allow other sites to re-development with the potential of irreparable damage to the that restaurant strip

I don't knowing if the south side of King should be protected from highrises or not but I think too many forumers are overly obsessed with height to the point that everything must be 30 storeys or higher to create a vibrant core or slow down sprawl

I think Calgary should set it's sight on surpassing Vancouver before even thinking of Taking out Toronto. Vancouver is more than double the size of Calgary and Toronto is almost triple the size of Vancouver! My point is it will be a long ******* time before Calgary even reaches Vancouver's current size, and that's even if Calgary continues it's ridiculous pace of growth

Planners dont have the final say. Planners make recommendations... council does the rejecting.
