I don't understand your reasoning regardless, there are about a dozen Toronto "visions" not on the list that would meet the requirements used for some of these other cities.

I'm glad Oxford Place is not on the list.. It has a super long timeline, plus Oxford is tied up in Manhattan with Hudson Yards right now anyways.

When it does break it will be like were getting 2-4 brand new proposals, likely supertall towers.

Oxford is committed to the two tower they have under construction here. Manhattan may as well be Mars in local terms.

88 Scott should also start construction by April since demolition is pretty well done.

Right now they're just finishing up removal of the basement level and foundation. They'll have to refill the hole with dirt in order to drill caisson walls.

The application is still with the city's planning department, which is short-staffed.

they might take 8 months or year to approve the thing with all the proposals on the list.

He didn't say they were hiring. Our current city council lead by captain business likes to use a sledge hammer on the budgets instead of the chisel which is required.

True, but you would think all the business-first righties on council favour anything that greases the path for companies, such as hastening the approval process for condo buildings.

One would think. Planning also leads directly to new revenue. They've recognized that association (bonus for 10 York sale included property tax revenue in the calculation; demands that they speed up waterfront development) but they still slashed the planning department the same %age as everything else.

There are lots of not terribly good business-men out there. They can even thrive when given a position in an already profitable business.

They got approval to hire 60 new staff this year, so things should improve. It got to the point where most developments were going to the OMB because the city didn't even look at the development for a year. A bunch of really crappy developments managed to get approved over the last few years because of chronic under-staffing, and the city was just being reactive to each individual application and never managed to actually get any proactive planning documents in place. Its essentially a free for all.

So theres no towers in the top 50 from Toronto's suburbs?
