Back in the days of film, historians would still take black and white photos for archival purposes. They tended to withstand the effects of aging better than colour photos.

Both stations at this location were architecturally interesting and contributed to the sense of place, not to mention being convenient for local residents. It's a shame that every one of these stations disappeared in the area, including CP and CN's West Toronto Stations further west.

But it's also great that GO stations are planned for St. Clair and Keele, Mount Dennis, Caledonia and Eglinton, and at Bloor Street on the Barrie line to restore some of the old railway connectivity of yesteryear.

753 units from 32 floors is crazy! Those are gonna be some chonky podiums 😏 (or just tiny units)

That works out to 659ft2 per unit, but that will include common areas/hallways etc.

So I think we're looking a mean unit size under 600ft2.

that would really be something in this area, lets hope the city doesn't butcher the design, fingers crossed.
They will. Once this is ready for development it will be 5 stories shorter, the curved edges will be square, and it will only be one building.

Thread title says Alterra, project profile says Altree

Is that a mishap? @interchange42
Fixed—thanks for flagging that! (and at the same time, I'm not sure how the pre-database style title wasn't replaced with the there-is-an-attached-database style title… but that's now corrected too!)
