I won't believe it until I see them digging a giant hole in the ground. If this is the start of construction, it will bump the number of Toronto 200 m+ towers under construction to 6. Not bad at all! Here's another photo though. Hard to believe this slither of a lot will get a 200 m+ tower.

A lot of north American cities are like that. We tend to cram everything into the downtown core while European cities tend to space things out more evenly throughout their cities.

The result is that downtowners rarely venture beyond the same 30-40 blocks and very quickly feel like they've been everywhere already. Toronto is really a city of 700,000 surrounded by 5,300,000 people we never get to see because we don't go 'out there'. Now if Toronto looked like the core all the way to Scarborough in the east, Mississauga in the west, and up to the 401, we wouldn't feel that way.

The land bounded inside would have to experience a population surge to 15,000,000 people for that to happen though. New York, Los Angeles, and Mexico City are the only cities on this continent that have achieved that feeling of 'endless city'.

Scotia Plaza and BMO don't seem right in that rendering. I'd think Scotia would sit a bit to the right.

A nice tower with a cheeky design.

Toronto shouldn't be afraid to try new things. It already has one of the most iconic skyline in the world and it's getting better and better .

Update from Jasonzed. The site has been cleared and shoring equipment has made an appearance.

It may not be a true metropolis, but Toronto sure as hell didn't feel like a 'small city' when I was there.

It's not but some people like to compare apples to oranges like comparing Toronto to Seoul...there's a HUGE population difference there

Toronto by no means is a 'small city'
