In Toronto, more cranes are on the horizon than in any other city across Canada and the United States. A building of 80 stories is no longer uncommon. As each skyscraper rises, the city is reshaped. Subways, parks, schools, businesses, and theaters are recomposed to meet the new density. As each tower arrives on the scene, it seeks to make an entrance. The quality of design, of placemaking, of public art, and of amenities continues to rise. Bird-friendly designs. Age-friendly designs. Pet-friendly designs. Affordability. These are the milestones in a city that soars tall. The tour will visit some of the most iconic and innovative approaches to capturing density in the sky while increasing livability on the ground.
