The Minto Midtown is a residential complex on Yonge Street in Toronto near Yonge and Eglinton. The complex consists of two towers, the Quantum and the Quantum 2. It has been developed by Minto Developments Inc.

Quantum is 37 stories tall with a total structural height of 118 m (387 ft)and was completed in 2007. Quantum 2 is 54 stories tall with a total structural height of 160 m (525 ft). It will be completed in 2009. The complex was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

The construction of the towers, the tallest in the neighbourhood was controversial. Minto reached an agreement with city council, after reducing the height by several stories. The buildings still sparked strong response from a community group named the North Toronto Tenants Network, who appealed the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board. The OMB ruled in favour of Minto. The debate over the towers proved central in the 2003 municipal election. Incumbent city councillor Anne Johnston had helped broker the compromise that approved the towers. She was opposed by Karen Stintz, who took a strong stand against the development and intensification. In a result that surprised many, long time incumbent Johnston lost by 2,321 votes.
