Thanks for the informative answer, innsertnamehere. And that is wild to think about, regarding the comparison to Buffalo. Makes Toronto's insane growth in less than 80 years all that more impressive. Quickly closing in on being the second best skyline in North America, by some metrics it's already there.

And yes you are right tdwag, there have been some that have been saved, but it's rare and the exception to the norm, especially compared to Toronto.

Just to name a few, the Bancroft Building, Rizzoli Bookstore, Calvary Baptist, and Trinity Court tear downs have all occurred in the last few years, and they were all heartbreaking. Made even worse that they will be replaced by buildings that aren't that special. If they had made way for starchitect designed supertalls, that would have been another matter.
