Here's a project I've been working on for some time now, making a 3D model of downtown Toronto. Still needs some improvements, but it's starting to look good enough now to post some screenshots. All of the latest proposals are included, as of last week anyways.

Overview, from the northwest:

And from the southeast:

The CBD and Clubland:

Yorkville and the north end of Yonge Street:

Looking north:

Yorkville, looking south:

Clubland, Southcore and Citiplace:

Looking north from the lake, the traditional postcard view:

And now for some dramatic shots, stuff you can't do with Google Sketchup...

All of downtown, from the west, just before sunset:

All of downtown, from the east, just after sunrise:

Looking up at the towers of the CBD, at night:

Amazing koops! And I could do that with sketch up if I wanted, just not with google earth. I'm in the process of something to 1 up you right now anyways. LOL. Nothing better than a friendly competition am I right?

Sounds good. I only just finished the basic model, and have plenty of improvements and additions to make to it. I'm sure the skyscraper fans here will appreciate a friendly render war too.

Loving your work Koops. One quick question, what's the tall spikey looking building immediately to the west of the Rogers Centre? It's not one I recognise.

I believe that's a placeholder for the unreleased Signature phase of the Adex CityPlace development. Looks great!

Yes exactly, Signature Tower, something I threw in there just to look good, but who knows what will actually be built? If ever? The one in my model is 250 metres tall.

I just went by the location indicated on SSP maps, so that error needs to be fixed too.

Edit: If you're talking about 100 Adelaide west, the location is accurate on my model. I dont know the name of the building currently there, but the new tower will sort of engulf it. Its easily seen on a satellite image, and its basically right across the street from FCP. And yes, that makes it behind INDX, which is slightly farther north.

Nice work Koops! Especially on Theatre Block... almost looks diagram worthy . Looking forward to hopefully seeing a more realistic future render soon!

The trip down Yonge St. is great, I like it. However, you need to put some textures on the proposals and U/C buildings. I totally understand the reason for that, so others can see what is "real" and what isn't, but seeing what Toronto will look like in the future is sort of ruined by the big blocks of solid colors. Nevertheless, good job!

I don't mind the blocks of colours, but would prefer the 'fly through' south of Davenport to be much slower.
