This, Ritz, Shangri La, will truly change the Lower Toronto skyline . We'll have to wait on the massive 16 York cluster(218m-the tallest), 300 Front(198m), 151 Front(171m) but I think they will all be approved too. Oh Yeah, and there's also the MLS twins(186m-taller one)!
Who knows, maybe the huge East Bayfront project will have a crown tower that rises over 200m too!
Btw L Tower (205m) should be almost 50% sold by now.
Telus Tower, despite being only 136m will hit street nicely and bring some life to the area esp. during daytime as it's an office tower.

There's still many towers of the City Place development still to go up, Festival Tower, Bay-Adelaide, Trump, and who knows what else in 'lower' Toronto. I've never heard the CBD called that, but it might just catch on with midtown booming.

I'm curious. Have you not see the plan or are simply choosing to ignore it?

Btw L Tower (205m) should be almost 50% sold by now.

The yet to be approved L Tower is north of 90% sold.

Building designs are not, but height restrictions are. I believe the winning proposal had a maximum height around 100m.

I was in TD for Doors Open last year and took the same picture. This is from last May so it's amazing looking at the progress of this area in the last year.

Malibu's exterior is finished. Sales for Panorama and LTD are in motion. West Harbour City is about 10 stories high. Montage and Neo are almost completed. Luna and Parade are on the rise. Ritz Carlton is above ground. RBC is some 22 stories high.

What a difference a year can make! And this is just one area of Toronto!
