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

The above are the only renders with this submission, at a size where I can capture the whole image. Below are enlarged, but partial images to reflect greater detail:

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!
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.

New renderings are updated in the database. The overall storey count increased from 36 stories to 60 stories. Height changed from 112.47m to 199.40m. The total unit count changed from 351 units to 618 units. Finally, the total parking space count was reduced from 59 parking to 12 parking.

Rendering taken from the architectural plan via Rezoning application.

Nope nope nope. Too many clashing pieces, too much on such a small footprint. But at least it won’t stand out too much being squeezed in between the Prime and DSG dreck.

I think this is a fantastic idea. I live in the area and the building is actually not in a great state and visually has little to no architectural significance. It's been painted yellow over the existing brick which has erased any of the "Victorian" look that may have once been present and it's becoming dilapidated.

The number of existing occupants is actually very small and let's not forget the housing crisis which impacts a much larger amount of people trying to live in the city!
