It’s that time of year again! After another 365 days of urban building, we’re back with our ninth annual UrbanToronto Year-End Reader Survey. The poll, presented this year by MEP DESIGN: Landscape Architects, is your chance to vote on your favorite new build projects completed in the last 12 months.
We’ve listed 45 Greater Toronto Area projects for you to vote on as the best of 2022, with completions cooling off from last year’s record 72. We only take on projects when we have full photographic confirmation of the building’s condition, so some projects that were completed at the end of 2021 but didn’t have good photos at the time may appear in this year’s list.
Contestants are grouped by height, so you can vote for your favorite in each of the following categories:
- 6 to 9 floors
- 10 to 19 floors
- 20 to 29 floors
- 30 to 39 floors
- 40 floors and more
We have a picture for each building, but if you want a more detailed look, just click on the link embedded in the project’s name and you’ll be taken to his forum thread where more photos can be found. From there you can access the database file at the top of the page where you can find more statistics and the associated project’s marketing accounts.
Buildings are generally ranked from shortest to tallest in the survey. There’s a link to the poll at the bottom of this article, but first let’s take a quick look at this year’s qualifying buildings by group to help you decide which ones will take home the crown!
