i wonder when Toronto will go taller than the First Canadian Place.

they obviously have the need for space at least.


The project looks rather good might become great of they do a good amount of shops at ground level and a more extensive marina

This proposal is dead in its current form. The property has been sold, and has been approved zoning now for 50 floor plus towers.

New developer will like have some new proposal for the site shortly.

This project has been bought by Empire, and brought back to life. It's name will be, Eau du Soleil....I know, ridiculous. No renderings have been released yet, but speculation on the new design is that it should look interesting. Details should be released soon.

Etobicoke-Lakeshore has become an interesting highrise area, I'm quite impressed watching it grow up.

The thread title says 2 X 50 floors. According to my math that's 100 stories. Another 100-story proposal!

*runs away*

These towers are to be called Eau de Soliel.

The rumour has these towers at 62 floors, and 200 meters.

Condo to be going into sales shortly.

These towers look rediculous but the scale is definelty impressive albeit inappropriate.

I hope they'll at least be some degree of retail podium. I presume the rainbow colored glass section is some sort of parking garage?

I like it. It's different without being gaudy like a discordantly ugly Libeskindian shard of glass, or similar rubbish. I like like the diagonal lines that separate the two shades, and the various gradients on and near the base. And the concave sloped roofs look smart in the render as well.

I like this latest rendering.
Ditto to a few posts back, I hope they put in some much needed retail and bars in the podium. With so many residents in this area within a few years they will be definite need for it.

I actually like this one. The only thing I'm not sure of is the lines running down the towers.
I just hope the white material on these renders is of decent quality when the construct these towers.

Apparently the design could be tweaked a bit before it goes to sales.
