I have always thought that Toronto's Skyline looks out of proportion with the CN tower dwarfing the rest. lets hope all these new towers can make a difference.

^ I'm not aware of any current plans for a new tallest, and I think it would take taller buildings rather than more buildings to balance the CN.

Toronto has a very good skyline and I like how the CN tower stands seperate from the tall buildings. However, all the scrapers are square, boring boxes.

There are lots that aren't, but boxy is what makes it look Canadian.

8/10 good density, but could use a few more supertalls to go along with CN Tower.

9/10. The skyline would look so much nicer with one or two supertall/s standing away from the cluster's center.

Hey, Christos. That's a really old picture. There are tons of buildings missing. When you go on flickr, check for the date of when the image was taken.
