Um, I can't get the links to work. Is it because I'm not a member of UT?
Any chance of posting the images for all to see please? Thank.

No doubt there will be naysayers, but I like these designs based on the relatively rudimentary sketch posted above.

Crazy, crazy, crazy, if all of these recent gargantuan proposals see the light of day!

I really like the look of the tallest two towers based on the above images.
I'm not so sure on the shorter two's slants, but I will admit that it's something that could grow on me

I actually love them, if they are in fact offset as shown. The taller two are less adventurous, but I find them very pleasing as well.

Where have you found heights on any of these? Do tell. 215 m. is a bit disappointing.

The 70 Floor Menkes Towers were 239 meters, and the 67 floor ICE Tower is 235 meters, what gives here?

With an illustrators account you can click on the "Upload a drawing" link on the building page, and it will tell you the estimated height.

Whoever entered the One Yonge development into the database put in the estimated heights. I definitely suspect the numbers are low, at or near the minimum possible heights for these towers. I mean, the tallest, 98 floors, doesnt even break 300 metres (298M), and the 92 floor tower has an estimated height of 280 metres. But they are just estimates, and we will have to wait for Pinnacle to release the true heights.

the office tower in the image should be between 170-180m if you are comparing it to 1 york, which is just 1 floor shorter than this proposal. I think it is safe to say the 70 floor proposals are just 215m tall.

I don't think its safe to say a 70 Floor tower is 215 meters.

L Tower is 58 Floors and is 205 meters.

70 Floors is bare minimum 225 meters.

Aura is 78 Floors and 273 meters, but here 92 Floors is 280?

Gimme a Break!

Is the taller one primarily residential? Office buildings tend to be taller than residential ones with the same number of floors?

my official guesstimates based off of a 180m office tower, and counting floors presuming them to be 3m tall:
