Is there an up-to-date site plan for this project? I'm confused as to how many buildings are being proposed over the long-term - is it still three or has it be reduced?
It has been reduced to one new office builfding at east end of site - to start "soon" plus another on the No Frills parking lot to start in 10+ years.

Thanks for these, AoD. Diamond Schmitt has to be one of my favorite architect firms...which was confirmed for me after their amazing work at Bridgepoint Health.

Great project here. And one less parking lot. Downtown east is filling in!

Final report: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2013.TE24.13

Among s37 includes $500k to St. Lawrence Market North redevelopment and streetscape improvements on King St E.
I see item 5. b. iv. mentions "adequate sidewalk widths" which I've definitely noticed is a terrible problem along the Front St. side in front of the LCBO, Dollarama and CIBC. But that's the part that likely can't be widened, unless the city gives up a lane of Front St., which it never will. Walking along there is a terrible and one of the biggest failures of this redevelopment, in my opinion, though the King St. side is shaping up great.

Good idea! (The thread for the rest of the King East Centre discussion is here.)
