Looks like some massive changes are on the horizon for Toronto's skyline. Many of us know that new buildings pop up in the city on the regular, and despite a slight dip in the real estate market in recent months, nothing is getting in the way of all the new construction projects that will soon be populating the city's skyline.
And with some of the city's tallest structures being built, the skyline is going to change dramatically in the coming years. The new additions to the city - like the approximately 306 metre-high The One building, are seriously making changes to the urban landscape.
A contributor to Urban Toronto is giving locals a little look into what the future of the city's skyline will be, with an in-depth diagram showcasing some major changes to Toronto skyline by 2022.
Lining up the city's most notable skyscrapers, from tallest (CN Tower) to shortest (Massey Tower), the infographic and city rendering give us an idea of what Toronto's skyline will look like from the west.
But for an even better idea of what the city will look like by 2022, Urban Toronto has also created a composite rendering of the diagram above and a current view of the Toronto skyline, illustrated from an angle near Yonge and St. Clair. The city's biggest upcoming project, The One tower, which is currently under construction as of a couple weeks ago, is dead centre on this image. This massive tower will not only be the biggest building in Toronto, but in the entire country.
And the crazy part is that the diagram above doesn't even include some of the city's largest projects that will likely be completed after 2022, including the Mirvish+Gehry Toronto, YSL Residences, and the tallest tower on the Pinnacle One Yonge site.
Of the other huge buildings that will comprise Toronto's 2022 skyline, 8 will be office buildings, 9 will be residential buildings, and 3 will be mixed-use.
