Turn of the decade, Toronto financial district December 2019: a nightime worm's-eye-view of Canada's financial heart.
Home to Canada's banks and investment community, this bustling centre has matured to highlight architectural styles from turn of last century (arc deco base of buildings) to globally designed skyacrapers epitomizing classic designs from virtually every recent decade. In fact, every decade since the '60 finds its place in this dense cluster of towers. The notable towers, in clockwise fashion from the top right, are as follows: TD Tower (731ft), TD Earnst & Young Tower (437ft), Commerce Court West (784ft), Commerce Court North (476ft behind West tower), Scotia Tower (902ft), Bay Adelaide East (643ft tucked in between the Scotia tower and following...), The St. Regis Hotel (previously Trump International Hotel at 908ft), Bay Adelaide West Tower (715ft), First Canadian Place (978ft - Canada's current tallest), and the TD North Tower (600ft). Truly, this group of ten neck-bending pillars of concrete and steel encapsulate the heartbeat of downtown and, broadly, the inspiration of srchitecture itself. So, from the closing of an eventful decade and to the onset of an optimistic new era, enjoy the image
