That thread has a fraction of the renderings this does. All info and pictures came from same site so nothing to feel sorry about, didn't take very long.

Batman Can, thanks alot for posting these... it's necessary to rehash it every once and awhile because there are so many... can't keep up. Thats the first time I've seen a M5VLife rendering. There are even some still missing... like West Harbour City for example. Also, I beleive that 764 Yonge and the Uptown are the same thing.

We should have a sticky in the Toronto section of just up to date renderings... no posts.

So they're starting to build office towers south of Union Station, huh? They better be real nice towers or else its going to make Toronto's skyline really really ugly.

BTW, nice collection of images to showcase the building boom Toronto is experiencing right now. I just got back from Montreal and the only thing I find Toronto lacks that Montreal has is the history, old world architecture, preserved old town, and more cultural venues.

Two towers a 184M and 174M or 610 and 570 feet.

"So they're starting to build office towers south of Union Station, huh? They better be real nice towers or else its going to make Toronto's skyline really really ugly."

There are many, many residential buildings going up south of Union as well. They won't really impact the skyline from the lake view all the much as they'll just block part of the bases of the taller financial district skyscrapers. Now, the east and west views of the skyline will be extended from the main cluster to the lake before all is said and done, with gaps at the tracks and at the gardiner.
