    Nice video.

    The OMB hearing is scheduled for mid January, 2015. Mediation facilitated by the OMB is currently underway . I predict these talks will lead to an agreement between the city and...

    Tall for the neighbourhood, especially with 3 towers of the same height... The mixed use infill is a positive along with the minimal number of parking spots.

    One of my favorite mid-rise developments in Toronto. It's very important that this building is a success as it may be the catalyst to bring about the desperately needed makeover along that section of...

    Not all Americans are foolish like that. Unfortunately, most just gobble up whatever nonsense that's presented without fact checking.

    The second issue at 1WTC was the location from which the 1,776-foot measurement had been taken. The building has four entrances, one on each side. Three of those entrances are flush with the 9/11...

    I'm not sure who made CTBUH the authority on these matters, but they have no backbone to report the truth.

    The building isn't really 1776 ft. It's a little taller thanks to a lighting rod. But rather then state the real height, this lie continues to be perpetuated to keep it at the symbolic 1776. My...

    Thanks for that i42! Great news. If any residents of Matlow's ward are inclined to tell him off for taking such a stance, it will be icing on the cake as M+G sails toward approval.

    That's a laughable situation. No bank is going to accept cost estimates at face value from a developer. Independent cost estimates with significant contingencies would have been undertaken prior to...

    I'm happy that some of the heritage buildings will be saved. I'm interested to hear adma's take. Also surprised to see PoW theater. stay. I thought that was a goner for sure. Are there other heritage...

    It's a sad pathetic game. If you want to develop a 75 storey building, you propose 83 and "negotiate" down to the desired height. Additionally, under Keesmaat, the planning department has become...

    Through backchannels... take with a grain of salt...

    Height was reduced from the lofty concept proposal at the instance of Toronto City Planning and Ward Councillour after preliminary meetings....

    Great question. I doubt the OMB can approve this one. The approval has to come from the city.
  16. There is nothing to prevent a public hearing...

    There is nothing to prevent a public hearing while before the OMB. That was Adam Vaughan's plan originally since the panel was created after the OMB appeal. I'm amazed at the rush to defend the...

    How do you know this since there have been no public statements made. Do you have inside knowledge?

    Keesmaat's legacy: cutting the Mirvish+Gehry towers down to size.

    I jokingly once said that I wish Keesmaat was made Chief Planner for Scarborough and other suburban areas do to her love of...

    Oh please. :) Have you seen the density calculation for 2 Queen Street West?
  20. Good idea and I completely agree. The problem is...

    Good idea and I completely agree. The problem is there is no zoning or formal city policy which directs developers to replace any office space lost during redevelopment. There was an OMB case I was...

    Just so we're on the same page. The entire building is being reclad??

    WTF? This can't be cheap. The owners in the condo association must be pissed!!!

    Regardless of the outcome, I'm not liking the lack of public information. We were promised at least one public meeting before Match 20, the original date it was to be sent to City Council. I...
