The land at 45 Bay Street (east of the Air Canada Centre) was recently purchase by a Montreal financial company and they are looking at developing an office tower up to 50 storeys in height... would contribute nicely to the southerly extension of the financial district, along with Telus, 151 Front etc.

wow three 40-50 story condos appear and its like yeah whats next...

things have changed.
yeah. 10 years ago, i would have been excited if a 50 storey building got off the ground.
now, it's just - myeh - not another one.
it's like eating peanuts...you just keep willing more storeys onto every new project proposed.
there's a vacant lot at the corner of front and simcoe that would be perfect for a signature 1000 footer.
trump shda gone there and it would have stood out.
shda wda cda.

Urban landscape for a 58-storey luxury condo tower

We collaborated on the urban landscape surrounding a new condominium tower in the monumental centre of Toronto, located at the foot of the CN tower and Rogers Centre (formerly known as the SkyDome) and in the midst of the city’s burgeoning International Film Festival district. To give the building a signature presence, we inscribed its address – 300 – directly into the design. The roadways and sidewalks of the site make up the digits, clearly visible from the high vantage points in the nearby surroundings.

Like the logo on a Fendi purse, the site-integrated icon is woven through with an intricate network of paving. A picturesquely layered crisscross of paths, luxuriant vegetation, and a sprinkling of street trees evoke the atmosphere of a park on the scale of a garden and undermine the formal order of city codes and regulations. Accessible to condominium owners and neighbourhood residents alike, the park serves as a link between private and public zones in the metropolis.

300 Front St. looks like it will have quite an impact, more than I originally thought. Any news on 151 Front St. or on Trump? Anything new on 1 Bloor, Shangri-La, Four Seasons or L Tower?

Trump is starting excavation (see picture a few posts up).
151 Front has no direct news, but the office market is tight right now indicating more office construction is possible.
1 Bloor has signs up advertising an upcoming sales centre.
Shangri-La is excavating an old building on their site. Will take a couple of weeks to photograph, dig up, and remove.
Four Seasons and L Tower have no direct news, but sales have been strong at both so we should be hearing some good things in the near future.

Thanks for the info Canuck. Remember Caltrane 74 had a survey a while back about whether Trump or Four Seasons would begin construction first? Who voted for FS? Also sad to hear CN Tower has been dethroned, but you'll get ZERO speculation form me about Toronto having a WTB again in the future...

That survey was partly in "jest" as Trump has taken so long to break ground.

F/S will begin construction by spring or before spring of next year, I have little doubt.

According to the Urban Toronto forum there doesn't appear to be any more detail at this point.

New renderings from the condo guide. I like it, and looks like an improvement over the previous design. The base does indeed look reminiscent of Bell Lightbox.

We'll find out eventually, I guess.
