This is turning out much better than people thought. Just shows that its best to be patient and wait till things starts to take shape. RBC looks very elegant already. It will only get better when Ritz begins to rise next door.

Thx Skybeam. it's nice to see Trump will at least make an impact on the CBD skyline from the north.

Trump may not contribute much to the skyline, but it's going to make for some crazy density down in the core. Density like that excites me more since it is what you notice when you walk around the city. Look at 1 King West! It looks like we may end up with super high density in Yorkville as well. That's what I'm looking forward to most. Two super dense clusters joined by a sea of 20-40 floor buildings.

Downtown and Midtown!

Can't believe a soaring 600 foot plus tower is a "highrise" not a skyscraper using this forum's silly new measuring stick.

Even though there are 5 "skyscrapers" u/c in Toronto (2 over 900 feet) taller than RBC, this is a skyscraper. There are scores of cities in NA and around the world that still don't have a 600 footer in their skyline... bet they'd call this a skyscraper.

people do get hung up with their definitions. First Canadian Place was constructed back in the 70's, and people refuse to recognize it as a "Supertall" because it is 2 metres short of the magical 300 m definition!
(and that is not including the antenna which is often counted in other places)

Nice tower...the architecture is simple, but still looks quite good in the Toronto skyline...though in the future probably It'll be overshadowed by other skyscrapers next to it, like the ne Ritz-Carlton or Shangri-La tower.

BTW, I took a pic of this tower last sunday, here it is :
