always nice to get feelings off of your chest. it is really up to great gulf now...they probably have the green light to go as high as the old 1 bloor...we shall see if they use all that height.

I'm guessing Proposal is more appropriate. And a mod should take out the number of floors and the height is now unknown.

We've still got Aura, although I don't want to jinx it.

Besides AURA, L Tower and ICE are both over 200 metres, and then there's that Signature tower at City Place. This is far from being a disaster. Toronto continues to grow by 100,000 people a year and the economy is rebounding nicely. A year from now, a lot of these development hiccups will be a distant memory.

Good grief....one major condo project changes paths and you would think the city had crumbled! Relax, folks. Something very nice will be coming to 1 Bloor. The recession barely slowed the city, and I think we will be hearing some exciting things soon.

Tall enough for me anyway, as long it reaches out up to 55 floors and can be an eye cathcher. Toronto needs to keep up with cities such as Toronto and perhaps there will be soon another project answering to those amongst us who like the so called "great razor" look or what it might be look like. It is a Skyscraper, it is Tall and it is BETTER THAN A LOWRISE or nothing at all, huh? ... The Taller, the better indeed

I'd imagine that Toronto is doing a fair job of this.

What happens to the previous buyers? Would they have priority to get these units or those contracts are out the window for good?

no...i hope not. speculators only inflate prices...i don't think anyone but the speculators want toronto to become another vancouver...even though it looks more and more like it is inevitable, sadly. i hope great gulf does a better job of selling the units to people that need living space as opposed to profit.
