Eighty new mixed-use and residential skyscraper projects are in various stages of development in Toronto’s already crowded skyline, which will more than double the number of tall buildings in the city upon completion, according to research by Point2 Homes. Toronto already has 60 completed skyscrapers (buildings exceeding 150 meters or 492 feet in height), ranking it as 17th in the world in its concentration of sky-high buildings, according to The Council of Tall Buildings.Following the completion of the 31 buildings currently under construction that have a set timeframe, Toronto will soon jump to tenth place behind Jakarta, Indonesia. Hong Kong is way ahead of the pack at 354 skyscrapers.
Among the new towers planned for Toronto are numerous “supertalls”—buildings over 300 meters (984 feet) tall. The One, currently under construction at Yonge and Bloor in the Yorkville neighborhood, will be 306 meters and the tallest building in Canada upon its scheduled completion in 2023.
