Nothing says urban living more than skyscrapers, graded skylines, and fast living: all things that are quickly becoming synonymous with living in Toronto. Although it’s not one of the nine cities in the world that have over 100 skyscrapers, Toronto is fast becoming taller with about 77 skyscrapers already built, 32 still being built and 92 either approved or being proposed.
In this article, we focus on some of the skyscrapers that are set to redesign the Toronto future skyline:
SkyTower, 95 Storeys
Slated for completion by 2024, Skytower will be the tallest building in Toronto just behind the CN Tower at a proposed height of 1028ft. Its designer Hariri Pontarini created it as one of the three towers of the Pinnacle project, a luxury condo development at One Yonge. The luxurious Skytower will have a record-breaking 95 Storeys, consisting of over 800 condominium suites with various layouts ranging from 520 to 2,309 square feet and with starting prices of over $800,000.
