Toronto’s skyline may soon have to be renamed, Toronto‘s spaceline — because a new proposed building would almost be out of this world.

“The HUB” would be a commercial tower at Bay and Habour — and stand 60-storeys. That is not a typo. It would be 1.4 million square feet. No typos there either.

Oxford Properties, the developer, says the building will “be a dominant fixture on Toronto’s skyline.”

So, while life on Mars may not be entirely possible for humans just yet, life on “The HUB” will be pretty darn close.
