TO Measures Up in Super-Tall Tower Stakes
Toronto came in a respectable fourth place in the global super-tall tower competition, completing three 200-metre-plus buildings in 2014. Canderel Residential’s Aura at College Park (seen during last year's Busker Fest) tops the list at 272 metres (78 floors); followed by Cityzen / Castlepoint / Fernbrook Homes' L Tower (205 metres) and Lanterra Developments / Cadillac Fairview’s first Ice Condos tower (202 metres). We can’t hold a candle to China, which won by a country mile, having completed 58 (58!) 200-metre plus buildings in 2014, according to Chicago-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. The Philippines was a distant second, with a comparatively paltry five completions.
