As monkeyronin stated, this type of re-development style is very common in Europe, I'm glad Toronto is making a go of it. The contrast in style to the existing downtown areas (which are already very popular and vibrant) and probably have more in common with New York than this new project. This redevelopment will really up the cache on the Toronto brand around the world, within Canada, and inside the city itself.
