Top 10 Tallest Condos in Toronto

talkcondo-new-condos-in-toronto-skyline

With Tridel recently announcing their whopping 75 Storey Tower at Ten York, “tall condos” are very much in the spotlight (to Register for First Access to Ten York, click here). Ten York will be the third tallest residential tower in Toronto and we thought it would be fun to see how the new mega-tower measures up against other condominium projects in the city.

The top 10 is mostly made up of projects that are either currently being built or in the pre-sale phase. The tallest residential tower that is completely built is the Ritz Carlton Private Residences located at Simcoe & Wellington. It is worth noting that while they are not 100% finished, Trump Tower and Four Seasons are mostly complete from the exterior and are both making a huge impact on our skyline. Likewise, Shangri La is currently around 6-8 storeys from the top and is beginning to dominate along University Avenue.

1. Trump Residences (Under Construction, 57 Floors, 276.9m) by Talon

The battle rages on whether Trump is #1 or #2. While the roof of Trump is shorter than the roof of Aura, the spire on top of Trump Tower puts it over the edge making it the tallest residential tower in Toronto. It is worth noting that Trump is a mixed use building, while Aura is a residential building.

2. Aura at College Park (Under Construction, 75 Floors, 264m) by Canderel

6. 156 Front West (Proposed, 65 Floors, 221.9m) by Cadillac Fairview

Earlier this summer, Cadillac Fairview announced that they had purchased 156 Front West, current home of popular restaurant Joe Badali’s. It was announced that the developer has proposed a 65 storey residential tower to accompany a 54 storey office tower. It will be the 6th tallest residential tower in Toronto.

7. Shangri La (Under Construction, 65 Floors, 214.5m) by Westbank

Shangri La’s bright pink hoarding may no longer dominate the skyline, but the incredible Shangri La is just a few floors away from topping off.

8. Ritz Carlton (Completed, 52 Floors, 209.6m) by Graywood

Ritz Carlton is the tallest complete condominium in Toronto. The Hotel & Residences opened their doors earlier this year and was the first of the “big four” hotel chains to open in Toronto (Trump, Shangri La and Four Seasons being the other three).

9. L Tower (Under Construction, 57 Floors, 205m) by Cityzen

One of our personal favourites, located at Front & Yonge just steps to Union Station, L Tower will be one of the most visually stunning buildings in Toronto when complete in 2013. Check out recent constuction images by clicking here.

10. Four Seasons Residences (Under Construction, 52 Floors, 204m) by Menkes & Lifetime

The Four Seasons made the press for having the first $100,000 parking spot in Toronto and for selling the most expensive condominium in Canada for a mind-boggling $28 million, but all of that points to ultra luxury living. The Four Seasons recently topped off and looks stunning. Four Seasons Residences rounds out or top 10 tallest condos in Toronto!
