The city needs to demolish the food supplies store. Frankly, it looks like it would be found in a 3rd world country. It's time to put in a supertall in that location.

The food store looks really small. I mean the plot looks small or is that only half of the plot? In that case a new project would be possible for that location. And indeed Toronto could use a supertall. I was just thinking of that. All those highrises and skyscrapers. The only sort of supertall is the CN Tower. Toronto needs a landmark

Are you kidding us? show a picture of CN Tower to anybody and most people can tell that it is located in Canada!

CN Tower is the symbol of Canada more than the first nations, cute seals & beavers, maple leaf, hocky, etc. And those who know more, can also tell that that is located in Toronto.

I can't think of adding a second landmark to a city that already has ONE.

Vancouver needs a landmark or maybe Calgary. ( Quebec has already Chateau Frontenac that represents the whole region)

A landmark, talking about a real skyscraper. That concrete cn tower might be a landmark for you guys but I think it needs definitely a 300/400m+ tower.

Well, maybe you are right. Something like " John Hancock" or " Sears Tower" will be fun.

Toronto could certainly do with a world famous skyscraper. The CN Tower was built 35 years ago. It's about time we built another spectacular addition to our city. The idea that a city should stop at one landmark is bizarre. That's just a recipe for stagnation and eventual decline.
