Congregation get new facility from land sale to Diamante Developments: http://t.co/pY3r5Yz "The St. George" condo project coming to the site

This is the site:
http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=43.774123,-79.414853&spn=0.001005,0.002401&t=h&z=19

Don't let the name fool you, this site in up in NYCC @ Yonge & Churchill (north of Sheppard), this project being named The St. George to recognize the property (St. George's Angican Church) on which is it being built on ... as part of the deal, Diamante is reconstructing / replacing the old church while getting residential developement rights over the western portion of the site

The zoning approval was put in place back in 2007, see City of Planning staff report (including Site Plan & Elevations):
http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2007/ny/bgrd/backgroundfile-7693.pdf

Now that Diamante has taken over the residential project, I wonder if they are going to switch architects (originally Zeidler) or seek additional building height permissions (original at 25 storeys)

Is there really a general contracting company called Buttcon?

Have been a sub to them over the years. You would be surpised on some of the names I have come upond for GCs and subs over the years.
