What would Toronto condos looks like if we took a page out of New York City’s tower styling from the early 1900s? Toronto has frequently been compared to the look of Manhattan in many ways. Imagine what it would be like if Toronto designed their towers like NYC buildings, I just came across an article about why there are so many setbacks on the older buildings in New York. A 1916 zoning law that required setbacks at certain heights to insure light and air to the street. The Shelton was one of the first buildings to take its form (see picture). What a great way to brighten the city and step back from the featureless towers that go up in Toronto’s downtown core!
