This site is an excellent location to add density.
Do we think it will be catered to student population or more towards the luxury Bay Street market?
The history of the area is amazing, I've lived in area for over 4 years with my partner who lived here way long. The idea of a condominium (let's be real that's what it is) is heart breaking, I feel it not appropriate for that area with the homes adjacent from the development will be over shadow them. I believe a hight restriction should be kept in place, it mirrors the west side of Queens Park.
I live in the building next door, so this thing would be going up right out my window. I'm renting, so it's not a huge issue.
But in your experience, does this look like something that will get approved? And if so, how long do these things usually take to get started? I'm here for another year and half or so, hoping I get to avoid the construction phase.
Thanks for any responses.
(btw, my opinion is that the current building should be preserved, even if the construction starts long after I'm gone)
Hoping millions of dollars/thousands of working hours in investment falls through to preserve your admittedly temporary view is not the right mindset when you live in a city with a housing crisis.I guess that doesn't sound too bad. Though I still hope against hope that it falls through.
Thanks for the great in-depth response!
hmmm i think opposition is valid, though admittedly there are plenty of other reasons than for views.I bet if this is permitted, next to go will be Kelly library, and development will keep getting pressed for right until the edge of queen's park. how sad would that be. What's there at present is an architecturally interesting building; the Basilian fathers are just trying to make a quick buck.Hoping millions of dollars/thousands of working hours in investment falls through to preserve your admittedly temporary view is not the right mindset when you live in a city with a housing crisis.
Something will certainly get approved on this site,
