I'll check it out today. When I was last there, they were still working on the reinforcing the subway tunnel. Or whatever it is they are up to there.

Looks like you also caught the Wellesley on the Park crane, and The Britt as well, although that isn't in the top 30...

Not tall enough for any list. (I'm pretty sure)

Oh yes, I'm not sure how deep the excavation is going at Teahouse. Will they dig below the tunnel bridge they are building? Reminds me a bit of Maple Leaf Square, where they excavated around and below the parking ramp.

So true, people forget how feet are still very applicable in this day and age. I've never met anyone who has given me their height in CM's.

Everyone I've met that has emigrated to Canada from Europe states their height in cm's.

I was born in Germany, but have lived here my entire life. I have never heard anyone here state his or her height in metres or centimetres. I will grant that we use a befuddling hodgepodge of measurements in Canada between metric and imperial. It doesn't make any sense at all, but it's long-ingrained in the national consciousness (or maybe it's a regional phenomenon).

As a child in the 80s, I remember my parents still talked about temperature in terms of Fahrenheit. That seems to have all but disappeared in Canada at least, in my experience.

Not much farther - there's only 2 levels of underground here - which is all service space and locker storage for the residents.

Parking is above grade in the podium.
