Toronto, a few of the down-town towers

 The big red boy here is Scotia Tower, To the roof top it is the second tallest building in Canada, it is close to 300 meters in height.

 This is a view of Toronto from the square in front of the City Hall. The tall white tower is First Canadian Place and is 350 meters in height. When constructed in the mid 1970's it was the tallest building in the world outside of  New York, and Chicago. To the far left is the old City Hall, now a court house.

 The centre Building in this pic is the almost completed Trump Tower. It is the second tallest building in Toronto when including the antenna. Trump sure counts it in !!!!

 These two towers are the Royal Bank of Canada, and the BCE Place Tower. Both buildings were built in the late 1980's. The RBC building is the worlds largest Gold infused glass building in the world.. It was done to save money on heating and cooling of the building. The gold long ago paid for it self.

 the Sky line from City Hall again.Here is a good view of the old City Hall to the left, and the city core in the centre.

 This is Trump Tower Toronto, Canada's second tallest building. It just opened it's doors last month

Lastly First Canadian Place, This building had the distinction of not only being the tallest building out side the USA, but also had more Marble on it then any other building in the world till last year. Canadian winters are not good for marble. The siding was breaking down and parts of it feel off a few times. Worse this beautiful building started to look like a patch work of old and dirty marble and new clean replacements. Hence the building received a new surface made of glass and is almost completed.
