Toronto is in the middle of a skyscraper boom.
More than 100 buildings over 100 metres tall are currently under construction, while a further 300 are proposed. At this rate Toronto will soon surpass Chicago and become the city with the second highest number of skyscrapers in North America.
The tallest and most exciting of the city's new towers is The One. At 306 metres, it'll become Canada’s tallest building and the country’s first supertall skyscraper. Located on the corner of Bloor and Yonge Street, The One will be an incredible feat of engineering at an iconic point in the city.
But what’s behind this race for the skies? Toronto’s rapidly growing population and its planning policies are causing developers to build up instead of out. So will this construction boom meet the city’s needs and just what kind of city is it making in the process?
To mark the release of The B1M’s new documentary produced in partnership with Autodesk, “Toronto Is Becoming Manhattan” we're hosting an exclusive chat with the team who helped create The One and many more buildings reshaping the Toronto skyline.
This live event will take a close look at the major changes Toronto is going through and how buildings like The One will help define this phase of the city’s development. We’ll also hear how digital tools like Autodesk Build are helping to support major city-defining projects of the kind we’re seeing in Toronto.
The panel will be hosted by The B1M's Fred Mills and feature expert insight from:
Kevin MacLean - Principal at RJC Engineers
Earl Mark – Core Architects
Yaz Shqara - Autodesk
