Default New Skyscrapers in Toronto

There's been quite a building boom going on in Toronto for the last ten years or so, adding lots of new skyscrapers to Toronto's skyline.

Here are the two newest and tallest condo towers:

Aura at College Park - it is 78 stories and 892' tall. The penthouse cost $17 million. What is very cool is that this building practically stands alone with no other tall buildings around it (corner of Yonge & Gerrard). It was finished about a year ago.



And here is "1 Bloor East" - it is 75 stories and 767' tall. It is in the final phase of construction. It is located at the corner of Yonge & Bloor, which is basically the geographic center of the city (aka 'midtown').



Both buildings are pretty good looking, not just the usual tall skinny box.

Default Re: New Skyscrapers in Toronto

Here's one more new condo tower, not quite as big as the first two I posted, but it is also a rather good looking building. It is called the L-Tower and it is 57 stories and 673' tall. It is located in the heart of the financial district (where it is surrounded by the largest skyscrapers in the city).



All three of these buildings add to Toronto's skyline - supposedly ranked the 7th best skyline in the world.
