Do you remember when Manhattan was the “The City” of skyscrapers packed tightly together? Do you remember when 50 storeys tall was considered to be a skyscraper in downtown Toronto?

Things are about to get a lot taller for downtown Toronto condos. 

Here are 10 new skyscrapers that will soon dawn the downtown  Toronto area. 

#1. “SkyTower” offering a mere 95 storey’s. 

Located at One Yonge St. “SkyTower” is supposed to be ready in 2024.  It will be one of three towers and will be the tallest building in Toronto, after the CN Tower.  

#2. “Mirvish & Gehry” on Duncan Street next to the “Princess of Wales Theatre”. 

These two massive buildings will be mixed-use buildings.

They were supposed to be 82 and 92 storey buildings but builders modified plans to be [only] 81 and 91 storeys tall. But with taller floors to provide for higher ceilings and luxury suites.

#3. Will be at the northwest corner of Bay and Bloor.

At 1200 Bay Street another mixed-use building will have floor to ceiling [operable] windows and a … wait for it … at 87 storeys a lounge in the sky. 

#4. “The One”. 

I’m still not able to verify if it will be 75 storeys or 85 storeys. This beauty is at One Bloor St. W. and slated for a 2022 arrival by Mizrahi Developments. 

#5. “YSL Residences” is currently under construction at 383 Yonge Street, offering 85 storeys (x 2 towers).

YSL (“Yonge Street Living”) is on the south-east corner of Yonge St. & Gerrard St. These two towers will be connected by a sky-bridge.Who knows, maybe the next James Bond movie will be filmed there. 

#6. 372 Yonge coming in at only 74 storeys tall. 

I haven’t found a name for this new building yet but fear not my fellow music lovers. The building will host a new venue called “Club Bluenote”, named after the iconic rhythm and blues club which used to exist on the property in the 1960s.

#7. 50 Bloor Street West, also known as Holt Renfrew will be a 70 storey tower.

Rising up from Holt Renfrew will be this condo combined with office and retail space on the bottoms floors. And then of course 600 residential units.

What about a view of the water, you ask?

#8.  A pair of towers at 200 Queens Quay W., slated to be 71 and 41 storeys.

This parking lot will soon be a combination of condos along with some affordable housing mixed in.

#9. Sugar Wharf. 

At 70 and 64 storeys tall you will soon see the first of two towers on the northeast quadrant of Toronto’s waterfront LCBO lands. The area will also include a new LCBO headquarters office tower just south of Sugar Wharf with connections through The PATH.

#10. The CN Tower will soon have neighbours called “Concord Canada House”. 

A 10-storey podium will serve as a base for these 69 and 59 storey towers. Also slated as mixed-use buildings there will be more than 1,300 new condo units for sale.
