Just 90 people trying to earn a few bucks waiting in line. That's not a very big crowd.

I wonder why didn't the agencies strike a deal with the developer beforehand?

I too believed it would the tallest residential building in Canada.

But if it is indeed a new tallest building, then it will be the tallest building in Canada and finally an official supertall!

I'm disappointed. Thought it would surpass the CN Tower in height.

I meant they made it sound like it would be a supertall... waste of a great corner.

I don't think it's a waste of a corner because a building is "only" 280 metres tall.

basic economics...


No need to sign a deal with a group of people who wish to buy at a certain price.

The developer is the dominate person, they can do whatever they wish as they face such a high demand.

Not a very big crowd? You do realize the 90 people were camped out on the street for an entire week, don't you? It is not just a case of 90 people grabbing a Starbucks and wandering over to the sales office on opening day.

Me too..I'm crushed. I thought it was going to be much higher than the Burj Dubai


(I guess I should put in a "Joke" emoticon or fifteen people will be correcting me. )

278m is great why would anyone ever complain? And as for real super talls... as long as we have the demand developers and builders will come. Just need to earn it don't think Toronto is too far off from several 300-400m buildings. Just haven't had the vision and risk takers so far to make it a reality.

Well that corner currently has 2 gross out buildings..and a building which needs to be redeveloped...

so a supertall could still come into the picture at a point down the road.

Here they are. Won't be groups of conservationists protesting the demolition of these eyesores.





and now we are all curious as to what will happen on the other side of the street?
