All these pictures of Vancouver are making me homesick. I miss that city.

I Love that picture! I'm just imagining a 400m super tall on the empty lot near city hall.

That lot is perfect for a 400m building and would help Nathan Philips Square feel more intimate. Unfortunately Toronto planners don't want the city visible when looking north from the square. Sky is the only acceptable vista according to them so the view north continues to look quite eerie and under whelming. All buildings to the north of City Hall are chopped down so you can't see them from the square.

This is a big north American city but they're trying to enforce (successfully thus far) some 19th century European vision of what a city should look like. It's bizarre but I'm not sure how long this mentality can continue. Can you imagine New York planners enforcing rules so you can't see skyscrapers? Like it's some horrible thing to be hidden from view or we'll all turn into pumpkins. I'm convinced that they're people who don't actually like buildings.

I believe they're planning a low rise law court on that empty lot. I kid you not!
