The tip of Trump's spire won't even reach FCP's roof level, let alone its 200 ft antennas.

Will it be as tall as CIBC tower perhaps? or even shorter?

It'll be the same height as the TD Canada Trust tower.

No, I wish I was an architect. I couldn't study for Architecture due to many reasons, I 've always loved and been facscinated by the ART of architecture and above all skyscrapers. They seem to be so strong, so solid, so magnificent and so aw-inspiring and I also were used to build my own cities using hundreds of lego's and later started making my own cities on real maps using paper, color pencils etc. I drew them, cut them out, made the shapes and put them on the maps. I once had built my own city with paper on a very small scale (that is why I wear glasses!!LOL) and there were about 400.000 appartments, skyscrapers, hospitals, schools, churches, cathedrals, you name it, even my own freeways. I love Los Angeles the most, because most of my drawing and later real design looked pretty much like LA (or maybe because I also was living there, I don't know)

Anyways... I love tall buildings!

I thought this tower would be 924 feet tall with the spire? If it is 924 feet tall, it's taller than the Scotiabank Plaza next door. Spires do count

Yeah, if you count the spire it'll be over Scotia's roof.

I don't think a lot of people in this board are in the field. Most people are skyscraper enthusiasts who are good at hunting down information one or another regarding these projects.

Should have been Canada's first "supertall"

The lot is small and too close to Scotia Plaza.
I'm not a fan of spires, this building will look
much smaller than Scotia plaza, and tiny
compared to FCP.

Everything in Toronto looks tiny compared to FCP except the Skydome and the CN Tower.

If we are wishing for money, why stop at 2 billion? I say 3 billion, just to be greedy

I wonder what kind of impact this will have at ground level once it is complete ...
