This number is incorrect. I believe the current count for NYC of buildings over 100 meters under construction is 66 - of those, 22 are over 200 meters. This excludes 11 100 meter+ buildings under construction across the river in Jersey City.

That said, Toronto is booming and this building is a great addition.

The SSC database shows 75 towers U/C over 100 metres, 22 of them over 200 metres.

Toronto has 52 towers U/C over 100 metres, 8 of them over 200 metres.

Yeah, that New York number is waaaaay off. Just check this list on the forum: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=216002 or New York Yimby's awesome list: http://www.yimbyforums.com/c/new-york
What's most impressive is that we 5 supertalls going up right now with 7 more proposed and likely.

The height increase is great, but the loss of the diagrid is very unfortunate.

It wont be iconic at all without the diagrid. Just another modern tower.

Wouldnt mind if Mizrahi switched to Stern.

I like the diagrid. one of the rendering's best features, IMO.

This thread is about a building in Toronto, troll. Keep your NYC discussions elsewhere.

I don't think he is a troll.

He was just responding to someone else's comment about the number of buildings under construction in Toronto compared to New York City.
He was just giving references to get accurate information on buildings under construction in New York to get a better comparison to those under construction in Toronto.

thanks, I definitely wasn't trolling—just trying to dispute a claim with some facts.

I like Stern but, I wouldn't trade F+P for him. F+P's brand is just the perfect fit for Toronto. We have a nice Stern designed tower and a decent midrise. Wouldn't want to tempt faith with another especially with Mizrahi calling the shots.

I'd say an opinion on the actual subject matter would have greater effort over pointing out a grammatical error however, your opinions don't really extend beyond tall and taller. Stick to what you do best. Correcting autocorrect.

Autocorrect? What the hell is that? Did you miss the winkie? Stick to what you do best, which is being a surly jagoff.

Personally, I agree that F+P is the best suited architect for this particular corner. However, I also think that Yorkville in general is overdue for some more quality traditional style developments. A Stern would be a perfect replacement for the stubby scotiabank building to the west of this site.
While Foster is great for anchoring large tourist, shopper, and commuter flooded intersections, Stern is great for "background buildings"

Imho, Mizrahi calling the shots isnt the problem so much as is P+S getting their grubby hands on things. Lets at least hope the "billion dollar" budget isnt as conceptual like the initial diagrid render was

Too funny and as if a winkie makes any difference. And, yeah, my phone has its own opinion whenever I dictate or enter something misspelled. I'm not sure what these services are named. Maybe the winkie knows.
