Holy shit. This will be Canada's first supertall. The CN i guess has put it in my head the there have been all along. Very exciting and an awesome design. So I dont get it. Why not Toronto? Should it be built in Hamilton instead?

Edit: oops didnt realize there was a new render;
Somewhat exciting with a mediocre design

I had my money on either Wawa or Swift Current getting Canada's first supertall The odds of any city other than Toronto getting Canada's first supertall are about the same odds of a Canadian city winning the Stanley Cup, and it's called the CN Tower not the CN Building for a reason.

Heavy Equipment on site (for demolition - not excavation)

Hmm, spot the differences between the two pictures. They took down the billboard on the brown building and the excavator's arm has moved a few feet.
