Don't think we have ever had this many big buildings U/C on the list before. I'm trying to think back...


Maybe 2012??
Trump
One Bloor
Bow
Aura

Even still the floor on this list is 216 meters. And it's never been that high before, I know that for a fact.

Perhaps in 10 years you'll need 316m to get on that list. Heights are continually bumping up and people are increasingly comfortable with more density/height. Where this plateaus is impossible to say but I suspect we're nowhere close to that happening.

Toronto doesn't actually build tall. Toronto builds dense. People are ridiculously comfortable with density in Toronto. There's probably no other city on the planet building as dense infill as Toronto. Increasing heights related to increasing densities are almost entirely a product of rising real estate values than investors comfort levels. Unfortunately, height in Toronto is seldom about prestige. The city's real estate has made the city ridiculously uncompetitive for retaining and attracting talent and hoping this list will achieve all supertalls in 10 years will only exacerbate that concern unless the luxury market takes off and height becomes about prestige.

Towers have reached between 90 to 100 floors . That is close to the max on floor count. It will take unsaleable height to achieve the next 100 metres.

So cool, I would love to see a hallway on one of those upper floors. The units must be very wide and narrow.

It's a strange duck and I want to like it. Maybe more of a goose with no beak. An odd addition to this city. Kinda NYC these days if taller.

I know, I know .. anything that's not a box is cheered.

Interesting take. I'd have to agree, in that Toronto is building only as high as the market is demanding it (which explains why only recently we have really seen 70+story buildings start being proposed- and now all around the same time). This also explains how we get such lacklustre designs for massive developments like Sugar Wharf, which are more meant to meet some demand than be satisfying designs to look at. Toronto really has a more unique urban fabric than people outside Canada are willing to admit. Sure this same scenario plays out in other cities, but it is polarized to a huge extent in Toronto that isnt seen anywhere else, save maybe NYC (except they have been building tall forever). There ultimately just aren't alot of urban areas that can observe this same effect of densification in such a short time period. I imagine most North American cities won't reach anything remotely close to Toronto/NYC/Chicago types of building density for decades (NYC is more dense per sq km than Toronto by alot if I recall but I digress).

A question I often think about is what led to the market and city becoming so comfortable with density specifically, across not just Toronto but all of the GTA compared to basically every other city in North America.

NYC has been building much longer. It has 2000 highrise older than 1930. The density across the island is being contained at around 10 FSI. To achieve higher in a development requires buying unused FSI from other properties (most of the city is protected from development so the best recourse is to sell it) or, on occasion, a cash donation to the city. It usually only takes patience to develop the minuscule number of protected structure in Toronto. The same applies to 25 FSI and above and without needing to buy air rights from other properties or a major cash donation.

We don't match the densities of Manhattan now. Give it another four decades of the same unbridled development and speculation in downtown Toronto.

Time and time again the planner express concerns over densities however time and time again the approved plan is pretty close to the buildable area as first proposed. Height is usually the one to take a hit. No wonder height has become the dominant discussion on any of these urban platforms.
