Torontopia, please stop flooding every Toronto thread with your videos. You got your own one going in the photo section, and that should be sufficient. Thank you.

- I have never been to Toronto, so I don't know. There seems to be a lot of Square Footage being proposed or under construction, both Residential and Office. Can the city really afford to build all this? It seems like if even half gets built there will be an over abundance and a crash in the construction markets.

A city like Toronto has been handling this current construction boom for many years now, and honestly,can continue to as long there's demand (which there's an incredible amount of from new immigrants and locals) and the utilities/systems to provide for it (which there is, and those same systems are being updated to handle new populations......except schools are having alot of trouble as of late.)

The vast majority of towers under construction don't begin until the units and/or sq. footage has been at least 75% sold... towers built on spec are rare. As soon as the tower is completed, it's filled up! There aren't any empty buildings sitting around...

Pre leased is pretty much a given the space will be occupied barring some extraordinary circumstance. Pre sold doesn't guarantee occupancy. That said, Toronto compares favourably well to other investor driven markets when it comes to sitting vacant units.

Keep in mind Toronto/Canada is extremely conservative in comparison to the US when it comes to commercial/office space usage and development. Tech is the driving force behind the office boom. A bust would be bad but, you still wouldn't see the numbers that are common throughout in the US.

As far as all the proposals, it's not outrageous to assume the combined number of square feet/units represents well over ten and even close to a 20 year supply. There's close to a thousand active and inactive proposals.

The big downtown proposals get all the attention but it's all these smaller projects across metro that will transform the city. The periphery needs the investment more than downtown any way.

Toronto has been building at this pace for 20 years now, with no sign of slowing down.

The city ISN'T building it all, private developers are... they are in it to make a dollar.

It's about to massively slow down: the big push now is to get all these proposals in before the government changes the law, neutering the OMB and effectively allowing the cities to downzone their territory and blackmail developers if they want to build. OMB was the best board in Canada (and much of the States), it was crazy to kill it. A real loss.

Development will be fine without it, the game will change considerably, but it will survive.

Just saying...a lot of people will find your opinion problematic.....mostly because the OMB was the easy "pass" for a developer to get any proposal to get through and approved without considering the community or city....which is the main reason its being brought down from my knowledge. There were other issues with the OMB......but IMO, I think the Municipal Board needed change......

LOL @ that one post. Can't get anymore "alt" than that

The OMB has grown into something it was never meant to be, should not be at no fault of its own. Both the city and developers have taken advantage of its presence. This should have been addressed the minute developers began circumnavigating the planning process and planning gave up processing application knowing full well it was a waste of time. The end result of all these compromised agreements is something we and future Torontonians will have to deal with for a long time. They certainly have created tall and dense communties but, have they create strong, livable communities?

The current system isn't good for anyone. With that said, I don't know if the upcoming changes to the OMB will address it. I would rather know I can only build 6 times the area when buying property to develop than to speculate along with everyone else that I can get up to 20 times allowed.

Some of those numbers are very different from the SSP database...

Lighthouse Tower - 182.3 metres? that's 25.3 metres taller!

YC Condos is 0.5 metres taller

E Condos is 1.3 metres taller
