Condo ads in Toronto are absurd these days to the point that they're more of a turn off than a benefit, imo. So if I live here, I'll be surrounded by pretentious shallow people who spend all day drinking gin & tonics, recreating, and riding around in helicopters?

They are called actors and actresses. All the more reason Toronto should not turn into Hollywood north.

Even though I see the construction everyday, I'm still always startled and taken aback to see how rapidly the skyline has changed in only a decade!

In 2 years from now we won't even be able to see Ice from this vantage point. It's cliche to talk about it being transformational, but that's precisely what's happening to the Toronto skyline. As much as it's changed, the skyline will be a vastly different again before the decade is out.

The grapevine says that there will be movement on Oxford in February. I've got my fingers crossed for that and the 7 tower 1 Yonge proposal.

Around 1993: (It's way smaller, but in many ways I prefer the old skyline.)

As you can see almost everything in this shot has now been blocked by other buildings. You can still see the tall white one (First Canadian Place) peaking out behind. Btw, FCP is still the tallest building in Toronto, but it's a good 1 km inland which explains why it appears shorter than ICE. 20 years before that:

Walk-around pics taken this past Monday. Notice how much less blue everything looks on a cloudy day when there is no blue reflection from the sky:

I'm glad they went ahead with that element. It could look interesting if they up light it.
