Not surprised with the increase in height given the cluster of 40-50 storey towers at Jarvis & Dundas, not to mention a proposed but yet-to-be approved 68 storey just south of that intersection. Design is meh - looks similar to Grid, although the splashes of brown may add some interest.Well......
This one is back, with a new application...............but she ain't 35s no more........in Toronto-esque style.........the proponent would now like 60s!
Underlying proponent is unchanged.
Architect has changed to IBI

Brief comments for now:
1) Height is being argued for based on nearest comparables that include Grid Condos at 52s and consideration of MTSA based on being 660M north-west of an Ontario Line Station.
2) Falls within the Sick Kids Flight Path, but is below the regulated maximum height.
3) Owner is unchanged from previous application; no involvement from Tricon is indicated, and no clear commitments to purpose-built rental as was previously suggested when Tricon became involved.
4) Owner is arguing no obligation concerning replacement of the rooming house units, but is willing to consider that a 'Community Benefit'.
I'll save the rest for after more sleep and some coffee!
