How far up and down the block will it be going? Does it include the Asian Legend building? This project sounds good to me. The rendering suggests that the building might have some visual interest, which is nice, and the block it's on is one of the most unimpressive in the area. I'm all for encouraging office development, but I think that's more suited to sites immediately adjacent to the subway and this is too far north of NYC station. Yonge and Sheppard is the most obvious spot, and the Gibson House and DeBoer's lands would also be suitable.

This is a good project and I hope to see it rising soon.

Here is what I came up with.

Blue is Gibson Square, Red is this development and Green is Centrium.

Centrium starts from the autobody shop, so North of 5224 Yonge Street. Anything South of that address to Pear Blossom will be this proposal (so Asian Legend is included - the small strip plaza - I am assuming this though).

The first and second picture reminds me of something - what this area needs is more non-restaurant type streetfront retail to draw people in (whether it be chain or independent businesses).

Any update on this project? Similar to the Centrium one, I've searched high and low, but no updates.

X2 meets Tableau.

The retail podium looks very open and engaging which is nice to see.

Will the retail podium be multilevel, like what is shown in the renderings? The report is a little difficult to parse...

There is fencing all around the site now and heavy equipment beside the old McdDonald's building. I think they are starting the project.
