This marketing image (for the plot of land at 11 Wellesley Street West) shows what the area will look like once U Condos I & II, FIVE Condos and St. Nicholas Condos are built. I think 8 Gloucester is in there too, but it's not yet U/C.

Missing in that rendering is the Sutton Place disaster.

I wouldn't call the change to Sutton Place a disaster. Anything that keeps the height (in fact adds some floors) and removes that hideous concrete monstrosity from sight is welcome in my book. Next, lets hope they can do similar with the Sheraton Centre.

no, those are prime architectural pieces from that time in history.. we tore down tons of Victorian beauties thinking they were ugly, when they had just reached a point of peak "uglyness". those buildings From the 60's and 70's are at their peak "uglyness" right now, and will not look too bad 20 years from now.

That marketing image looks to be between 170 meters to 190 meters.

Cool!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I accept that you (or others) may like the look of the 60s/70s concrete behemoths, but to me they are brute ugly. I like the height and shape of some, just not the look.
Hopefully they won't look too bad in 20 years from now because they will have been reclad into something more aesthetically pleasing...

This is a model by forum member steveve. It's not a rendering, but nevertheless does a great job of showing the "future skyline". Note the inclusion of a fully built Aura, L Tower, Theatre Park, Massey Tower, INDX Condos and 88 Scott, among others. Great work steveve!

Nice work, Insertnamehere. I guess I'm one of the few who's looking forward to the completed B-A complex. The three towers together are quite handsome, if they turn out that way.

Agreed. Whilst the B-A three towers aren't per se anything spectacular, they will work well together and are a good addition to filling out the skyline.

Yeah I've never seen a rendering of the completed BA complex will look like, I actually love it. The 2010s version of TD Square... nowhere near as "iconic" but still quite nice and have a sleekness that a lot of other towers don't.

I'm wondering... could someone perhaps make a high quality render of what the completed complex will look like?

I hope this never happens. This is the last chance for a Dundas Square 2. This lot needs to be kept vacant and later developed into our next great public space. The core is going to get very dense and tall over the next decades. We'll desperately need places like this and now is the time to recognize that future need.

Well well well... Looks like we (specifically Innsertnamehere) got some CanadianBusiness attention!

well I had no idea this happened! oh well, good to see that my model has made it to a location that could actually be seen by people other than skyscraper geeks

I guess I should update this as well.. I have added a couple of buildings I was missing, a couple have disappeared because they were cancelled, and a couple more have switched their status.. ( I am keeping the model updated, but am too lazy to post photos, as it takes about a half hour to get the thing loaded up all at once in google earth)
