I hope that the "pre-construction" advertisement is true, it's been on the market for a couple of years now, it was first named The Pierre and now changed to Lotus. The site is good because it's a small site that could use some in-fill there.416 said:Lotus is advertising 'pre-construction' pricing now in the Condo Guide. THAT condo has been on the market a hell of long time. I wonder why it isn't selling very well? It's definitely in a great location.
The Bloor St. Neighborhood condo is just a couple of blocks down the street, and hasn't broken ground yet, despite being on the market for well over two years now. Maybe the neighborhood is not as attractive as we assume?416 said:Lotus is advertising 'pre-construction' pricing now in the Condo Guide. THAT condo has been on the market a hell of long time.

I think that Miami in the future will have a bigger condo boom than Toronto, and plus they do have way nicer condos than we do.partybits said:Just sifted through Emporis We have 54 under construction. And while we may have only 3 or so over 500ft u/c right now, look how much we have in the pipeline: West One, HV1, MLSE 1&2, Hummingbird, Ritz-Carlton, Signature Tower, Trump, Sapphire, 1 Bloor E, Richmond/Adelaide, 1 King W, Minto, Uptown, Festival tower, and CP1.
That's a total of 16. I'm sure 9 out of 16 will be built.
We seem to have a Tonne in the 400-499ft height though: 7 u/c and and 17 approved/proposed.
So, I'll call it a tie!
By the way, does anyone know about this proposed Parkway Forest development? 7 buildings ranging from 39-48 stories in North York. Is this the one that got proposed for Bayview/Shepphard that never went through due to height?
Well Miami really isn't the most accurate site but it's a great compiliation nevertheless. And unless, most of Toronto's get off the ground, I think Miami takes this one. Just look at the first page of Miami's highrise stats on em. http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/ci/bu/sk/li/?id=101321&bt=2&ht=3&sro=1partybits said:I really do not know how Miami will be in the future. Just gave the present stats of Toronto based on Emporis...and we know how accurate that site can be!
For West One, i considered it u/c already. It's close enough for me...there's a hole in the ground...lol.
As for the rest, remember that I was more or less just browsing through Emporis. They still consider them u/c as technically they still are. Was just an objective (while not accurate) way to compare Miami and Toronto.
As for Festival Hall, now that the government has'nt fallen, I have more confidence they will build it....eventually. Hummingbird, does'nt look to good.
Conclusion, Miami & Toronto are about the same in construction, not exactly, just roughly here!
So is the Parkway project the one at Sheppard/Bayview?
