Like somebody somewhere said, Manhattanization of Toronto is a joke. But at this rate Toronto could possibly surpass Chicago in a decade or two.

Good luck, Toronto!
Thanks for sharing the images.

Once everything in this render has been built, All Toronto needs is three to four 300m+ towers and we'll have surpassed Chicago. Great post, thanks!

In reality Toronto will never surpass Chicago because the all the condo econo-tecture going up dosen't remotely rival the design&material quality of pre-war highrises.

The renders are outstanding though. The difference between the Entertainment district of 2005 and 2015 is mindblowing.

I have an old (2009) render of the skyline, but still kind of works for except for 50 Bloor (Holt Renfrew Tower) and 90 Harbour residensial are not included, and it shows the RBC Centre being built.

Toronto overtake Chicago? That's never going to happen.


Buildings Over 500ft (Roof Height)


Built
Chicago: 100
Toronto: 23

U/C
Chicago: 1
Toronto: 18

Proposed:
Chicago: 12
Toronto: 39



So like I said, it will never happen. Once the Chicago economy recovers, a mass amount of projects will once again mobilize and new proposals will come to the table.

If it (along with the rest of America's economy) ever recovers...

In the early 20th century, people had hoped that Toronto would one day become the equal to cites like Cleveland or Detroit. We all know how that turned out.

Not only is it just a matter of time, but it will likely happen within the next 20 years. By some metrics, Toronto's already over taken/about to over take Chicago: density, city population, prominence around the world, as a centre of world immigration, cultural industries, manufacturing, international banking, capital markets, etc.

Manhattanization doesn't infer equality to New York in scale, it only refers to vertical growth/intensification. People read way too much into simple words. Manhattanization is certainly happening in Toronto as the core grows up instead of out.

But the core is growing up and out... the core of buildings has basically doubled in size in the last decade.

Those are some pretty good renders to show the amazing change happening right before our eyes. Seeing the past 10 years has been amazing, seeing into 2020 will be fantastic.

I'm from Vancouver, but I have to admit Toronto is fantastic in almost every way. A great city to fill the role of Canada's largest !!

so.. I decided to go through and colour code my buildings according to their current state in the application-completion stages of construction! if you see a building with the wrong colour, or if you see a missing proposal, PLEASE TELL ME! provide a link to its forum thread if possible for the missing project too!. I'll try to add it! (think of the borders as bathurst to the don valley, and the waterfront to davenportish) if someone is willing to give me a good linked list of liberty village or any projects south of queen and east of bathurst i would be happy to do those as well!

WHITE = the project has had preliminary renders, but no application has been submitted.
RED = the project has submitted an application to the city
GREEN = the project has been approved, but has yet to start construction
YELLOW = the project is currently in sales
BLUE = the project is currently under construction

classic skyline shot;



zoom in on the entertainment district to give a better idea of what's happening there;



a shot to show how dominant 50 Bloor west will be;



and just a nice aerial of the entire city;

Love these latest multi-color renders. They show so well how the Toronto skyline is going to change (and improve) in the next few years.

finally got around to around 65 more buildings. if I am still missing any, which I am sure I am, feel free to tell me!

lets start off with a nice aerial,



then we see what it will be like to drive into the city on the DVP in 10 years;



lets zoom into the st.lawrence / distillery / moss park area...



flipping over to the other side of the city, we learn that the Entertainment District is in fact "Manhattenizing"



continuing west, we check out liberty village (I am sure I am still missing projects for this)



switching back and heading east, we hit the Fort York neighborhood; (probably missing a couple buildings here as well)



then a look at the hoity-toity Yorkville neighborhood;



and lets finish it off with a classic skyline view from the Islands...

Great stuff as usual. Last pic takes the TO skyline to another level!

Any chance you can do a close up on Southcore with the new color coded scheme?
