I wonder what that blue stripe is actually made of? Looks so intense.

Indeed. Exciting times in this city. This one will top out after Trump, so it will be interesting to see which will be the taller tower.

Meanwhile the official construction of Trump Tower began November 12, 2007 however, its thread status is still "Approved". Having just two floors below grade, Trump will be above ground very quickly.

1 Bloor's building mass will be decidedly taller. Trump's rooftop is at about 750 ft. (229m) The 280 m figure is for the very tip of that ridiculous spire.

Gay Towers:

1 Bloor will be taller and certainly more visible than Trump (which will be hidden between all the other towers.

How can a tower that is not even approved be considered under construction?

Approval is pretty much a given and should be finalized within the next few months. No one can predict what will follow and whether some NIMBY(s) won't appeal that decision further delaying construction a minimum of six more months

That's essentially what I wrote, so I don't understand the redirect.

I walked by Yonge and Bloor this morning and am terribly excited for the blighted southeast corner to start its transformation.
