Looks fantastic and I sent the article to two friends who both go to that Clinic - both say they have yet to see it as their docs are still only doing Zoom consultations!

Personally I am not a huge fan of the aesthetic (ditto PMH) but if it helps the patient, more the power to them.

Interior demolition continues. I see bits of it from my apartment, such as removal of the SMH non-medical waste facility.
It certainly is taking them a long time! I do think something might be about to start though. I see they fenced more of the property, and put up one of those temporary washrooms on a trailer just a few days ago.

^ any renderings of what will replace it?
I remember seeing them somewhere, it's not anything exciting, basically just a new 6-storey glass box. The main purpose of it is to provide a new emergency department. It'll have a new underground ambulance loading area so that it no longer has to be done from the view of the public street, or often, physically on Shuter.

On St.Mike's website, the suggestion is that the initial build will be 2s and Emergency Dept only.

So we know what version is going ahead?

I believe they initially filed for 2 storeys but revised it to 6 afterwards.

The SPA drawings show all the areas above the ground floor as "Shell" space only, so who knows. Perhaps they got SPA approval for the full thing now so that they can add the next 4 floors later easier and just build the first two right now. We'll have to see what the permit says.

The old Shuter Wing (which is, in fact, three buildings built at separate times) are prepped for external demolition. Going to be a slow and deliberate process given the active hospital uses on both sides.

The Art Deco 30 Bond Street entrance is a heritage structure and is not included. However, plywood was put up on some of its windows to protect the active building there.

It's too bad they aren't at least incorporating the older portion of the facade with the pediment over the rounded bay. The rest of that wing isn't very remarkable, sure, but it's always sad to lose red brick for a squat glass box.
