According to the article the tallest is supposed to be 65 storeys, so with a 4 floor commercial/amenity podium and large crown I'd say these will be in the range of 220m-240m tall.

Looks like a likely new tallest for Metro Vancouver, and certainly the most prominent since Metrotown is on one of the highest points in the Metro.

Also, sounds like they are planning to build the tallest tower in phase 1.

So apparently M3 condos in Mississauga will be 80 storeys and "in the top 5 tallest buildings in the GTA", whatever that means. If it means top 5 already existing by roof height, it would need to be at least 253m to surpass the Trump Tower.

Ironic that a tower that might steal the title of tallest west of Toronto from Stantec Edmonton could be located in Mississauga

I'm well aware. Just enjoying the irony of the technicality. The Stantec Tower is quite impressive, regardless of other towers that may or may not be taller.

This looks inane.....which fits the area. Go for it Missingsausage….good grief.

Anyways...hopefully this list of ours gets a good shaking in a few months, there's at least 10 stale proposals due to a variety of things.

I heard a whisper of 235 metres (ish), but don’t quote me on that.

That was many months ago and I can’t even quite remember who I heard it from.

The number makes sense to me. Lots of planning to go on this one but it is trending to be quite tall.

Well, 1 Eglinton East was approved on October 17th, 2017, so someday it will be redeveloped:

Whoa! OZ's new tallest is stunning! Why timid-uninspiring Toronto, why?
