Thanks guys... I took the easy way out with Union Centre and made a drawing from the south, with far less details to draw.

Looks like you'll have to revise your drawing Koops! I just got confirmation from Allied that Union Centre will be 238.5 metres.

Well, this intersection has to potential to be gigantic....

Even in Toronto terms, this intersection will be no joke.

Yeah, far taller than I expected. That's just a shade taller than The Bow and a shade shorter than Commerce Court West. I thought it would just clear 200 metres, but that top floor atrium adds a little extra height.

238.5 metres is quite tall for 48 floors. But I don't mind revising drawings upwards.

That's a lot taller than i thought. I was thinking between 215 and 225 metres. I wonder from which elevation the number is derived.

That 60 foot floor at the top is what is throwing this off. Wow so 782ft! Insane

So Toronto now has two office tower proposals at 782ft and 869ft. Let's hope they get some anchor tenants soon.

So the top 50 looks like this:

- 38 are from Toronto
- 3 are from Calgary
- 3 are from Niagara Falls
- 2 are from Burnaby
- 1 is in Edmonton
- 1 is in Winnipeg
- 1 is in Ottawa
- 1 is in Vancouver

Vancouver needs to catch up. even Burnaby has more proposals than Vancouver.

Not sure Vancouver has much hope to regain its share of proposals. Especially considering that Shangri-la is the only building in Vancouver taller than #50 on this list.

They were with L'Avenue, but I think Montreal forumers are glad that it's now off the list (since it's under construction).

There are several multi-tower proposals that keep other cities off... almost 20% of the list is made up of two projects.

One Yonge has 5 towers on this list and MIRVISH has 3 towers. For some reason the Oxford project is not here (that would be another 3 towers into the top 20). But Toronto shouldn't be penalized for having big mega projects. Bring them on. Toronto has had two new commercial proposals in the last month, both very tall and significant as well as some solid condo proposals.

Agreed that it's better to list each tower separately, especially since some of them aren't completed at the same time. But just wanted to point out that some cities may have made the list or had more entries if Toronto developers weren't so keen on multi-tower proposals
