At first I thought Luna but the south face is not curved.
So i'll go with Burano now.

Can't wait to see this awesome render all finished!

U Condos aren't under construction yet, so I'm going with Maple Leaf Square.

^the winner is .... Burano. This trapezoidish shape is a pretty exact match of the model and the elevations... facing s/e.

This thread is more of a "Toronto's future skyline." I want it to be more interesting, someone start including more Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal etc... renders please. The Toronto renders are beautiful, but lets see more Canadian cities!

several Montreal renders have been posted, though none at the maldivian caliber. Anyways if you want an accurate view of the future skylines of some cities I'm well acquainted with I'll be more than glad to help you

...this image is almost accurate, but
1- it omits some 10 storey "towers" that will be built in the next 30 years
2- the farmland in front will be a very popular and prosperous suburban neighbourhood

^Nope; not even close. Just about anything in Eau Claire on the other hand ...

also, add a couple 10 lane super highways so Malek can drive around in his SUVs.

It should be noted that these are older renderings and that some of the projects within have changed. i.e. the grand has a different design now and the BMO building is on hold.

But, no I do not find the Bow to be damn ugly. A little squat perhaps, but a thousand times more interesting than anything else I've seen for a while.

I find the Bow in these renderings makes the Calgary skyline look lop sided.

If it were more centrally located, that would be better. But as the building goes, I think its fine. ( and above par for the course)

No - but I suppose I'm bias.
I really like the the "Future Calgary Skyline" render with the river in the foreground - I think it's going to look great. Thank Christ they didn't put the CP tracks along the river way back when.
I do agree we have to better on the Eau Claire site - I like waterfront though.

as much as i might think it could have "fit in better", i have no doubt it will be a stunning building.

i think i'm just not a fan of the perfectly flat top on it; seems too abrupt. hopefully they use good materials and maybe it'll look fine.

Eh? Its a simple rectangle from that angle. The only issue I might have is the sheer mass of it compared to all the other buildings. The first years after it's built, it may look a little out of place. I'm sure any buildings that come after it will be designed with that in mind.

This is a nice one of Calgary... reminds me a bit of Pittsburg on steroids.

Lately I've been trying to create renders from a "real" pov, that is to say future snaps that could be glimpsed without the benefit of a helicopter (like my high angle Toronto a while back) etc. Could something like this view of Calgary actually be viewed (zoomed or not) from a neighbouring foothill perhaps?

Actually this is very similar to the view one would get from Crescent Heights across the Bow River from downtown, but of course it is quite a bit higher up.

Also, if one were to "zoom" into downtown from the south face of Nose Hill Park the view might be similar.
