You guys really think the city's population will more than triple in 18 years? o.0
Toronto is booming, but hold your horses guys ;P
I don't think that Toronto will have many supertalls in the future.
Here's my prediciton for Toronto 2030.
-Canada's economy busts because of actual poor decisions made by the conservatives in all spheres of the society.
-The people overthrow the government and establish a new democraty that really serves the people, thus making most office job in Toronto useless.
-Bad quality condo towers start shedding their glass panes regularly, killing a few innocents. Most are empty due to skyrocketting prices and lowering wages.
-People massively move out of the mega-cities (Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver), looking for a better quality of life.
-Ultimately, downtown Toronto becomes a wasteland dominated by the mob and by low-level criminals that attack ordinary citizens for a few bucks.
-Few rich people are able to afford nanotechnology performance enhancements and now live in the underground city. They defend this last oasis of security against the starving masses.
-There are no traffic jams anymore because few people can afford a car. However, people drive armored vehicles that are designed to kill while avoiding being killed.
Most have understood by now that this is a joke. However, I think that this scenario is as likely to happen as the ones that implicate Toronto having 16 millions citizens and 10 supertalls by 2030. If the world doesn't go to shit and if the city is able to keep growing at that pace, it could probably be achieved by 2100 or something... This being said, I don't think it's going to happen. The world is going to change in ways that we can't predict
I personally think that the actual financial model is doomed. Cities like Toronto, New-York, Honk-Kong and Tokyo are bound to take a hard hit! On the bright side, economies can be converted very fast in dire times.
Good luck and don't forget to wear a helmet. The weather forecast for Toronto is heavy glass pane rain ^^
