Supertall in Toronto?

any one know if toronto has any plans in the near future to build a supertall building? it seems like a lot of cities these days are building these supertall buildings, and we're still stuck with buildings that are under construction under 240m ....any info on this?

I don't really know what constitutes 'supertall' to you but, if I'm assuming correctly, Trump Toronto is significantly taller than 240m. Nothing as tall as 1000 feet is currently planned and I don't really expect anything to come up (never know though)

I would try the Toronto forum, or even the Toronto Development News thread in the City Compilations forum...
