Ontario leading western world in structures exceeding roughly 45 storeys

Tall-building development here is outpacing every other city in the Western Hemisphere with 15 skyscrapers exceeding roughly 45 storeys now under construction…

… by 2015, Toronto will be home to 44 highrises exceeding 150 metres, more than triple the 13 skyscrapers that graced the city’s skyline in 2005 Star

How does this compare with rural Ontario?

Some individual wind projects have 60 or more turbines exceeding 150 metres in height. For example, a 2.5 MW GE XL wind turbine is just over 150 metres tall. See the home page for a list of Ontario’s 300 industrial-scale wind projects, totalling 6,500 turbines.
