At 245m you'd think this monster would surpass Scotia Plaza in square footage already! Just look at that base! Weird considering how skinny Scotia Plaza is.

Another set of twins! RoCP is there, Minto is in the back, The Met is east of that, and Murano is rising. Plus Burano and Aura will fill the other gaps nicely.

Are there any plans for the parking lot in front of Lucliff Place?

Well.... Aura is skinny too with set backs to boot. Look at Scotia from some other angles, it's probably the widest building in the city.

The 3rd tower will be called Aura....construction may have been delayed a bit due to the recession/slowdown, but apparently they are approximately 85% sold, and are planning to commence excavation soon...Aura is supposed to be 75 storeys....

Maybe someone with more authoritative insight can chime in, but as far as I remember reading Aura (the tallest ROCP) will be groundbreaking in a few months (late summer?).
There were also rumours floating around (purportedly spread by the Aura sales team) of a height increase to 85 floors, but I don't know how much stock we can put in them. This economy isn't conducive to experimentation.

I agree. We shouldn't get to excited. Just look at what has happened to 1 Bloor East

Well....it appears that Aura, the long awaited 75 storey third phase, will finally be commencing construction on Jan 5, 2010.....courtesy notices have been sent to the neighboring office and residential buildings, and the sales office is being converted into a construction office as we speak.....

That might be explained by the fact that January 5th comes after December 29th.
