    Thanks, should be at least as imposing as Aura over Dundas Square considering it's half a block closer.

    nice finally some more good height around younge dundas- will make things when looking up and around seem more grand especially when aura is done even though these are not exactly within the square

    I'm very happy about this development, but it makes me worry about the fate of 205 Yonge. I fear the only way that building could be saved is if it gets incorporated into a larger development such as this one. Since it's left out of this development, it will be completely boxed in. That means that it might continue to face neglect or that there may be increased pressure for a facadectomy since developers will only be able to build on top of it and not around it.

    Well according to MOD Developments....moddevelopments @realchet as far as we know the current owner has no immediate plans for development.
    Nothing wrong with an owner that wants to keep a heritage building on Toronto's main drag ...hopefully he finds a nice tenant.

    Only as long as the owner actually maintains the property, and doesn't let it fall into ruin.

    Also noticed Tricon has www.masseycondos.com and www.masseycondos.ca registered. Looks like the .ca site is coming soon.

    True, the City of Toronto should have never sold it in the first place....Crazy

    Who does own 205 Yonge? Leaving it vacant would be an expensive hobby/gesture to preservationists. The taxes and necessary maintenance on an older stone structure would cost the proverbial pretty penny. Surely the status quo can't be maintained for long. (Why are pennies considered pretty, by the way?)

    Lol..if that is the case, shut the whole downtown core to any developments over 50s...i bet there would be a lot of happy people.

    This has been discussed elsewhere in the forum -- it's owned by an absentee owner, an Irishman who apparently bought it because he liked it. Unlike its neighbour at 197, it is a restored building--a very nice restoration was done in the 90s before what was then the Toronto Historical Board occupied it.

    If anything I would think this is a positive for 205 Yonge. Sure it's not incorporated into this project but putting 60 stories of new residents on its doorstep has got to be a good incentive to utilize the space instead of just letting it fall into disrepair.
