    I notice that the signs have been removed from the TRINITY STUDIOS building on Trinity Street just north of the Bonded Warehouse so I assume they have vacated the building - presumably in preparation for demolition.

    So it it confirmed that they are moving here?

    Has anyone got any news on the Distillery Gansevoort? I hope this one flies.

    This was posted above (on June 15). Seeing the white sign does show it is still moving through the bureaucracy though.

    Just took some pics of the render from the development notice!



    The whole render:

    A sizeable terrace overhanging the western face of the building between cube two and three.

    The heritage podium:




    The tower:




    Looks like they'll be adding windows to the south side of the heritage building. Right now it's predominantly brick with one column of windows in the centre.

    Very cool. If pressed I'd say Teeple or KPMB.

    Awesome. Who did Studio condo? Same idea, but I like this one a little more. It looks like it will play nice against the other Distillery condos. A hotel near the Distillery is a great idea too.

    While I like the hotel portion, it shows no relationship with the heritage building at all and looks like it could have been built anywhere else completely new and unencumbered.

    The rack house is unique, I saw the interior once at a Doors Open, and it is very special with the racks stretching off to back and the to ceiling with layers upon layers of racks. To destroy the interior and leave only the brick facade is to destroy the heritage features of this building. They might as well not bother and just take the whole thing down. What is with heritage protection in this city, is it to be reduced to just cosmetics stuck on a brand new building? Heritage buildings are more than just their exteriors.

    well what else do you want to do with the building? let it sit and rot for the rest of eternity? much better way to make use of the building then this, thats for sure!

    Don't see how basically tearing down the building helps to save it and prevents it from rotting.
    There is no museum for the Distillery, what better place to put one? Art gallery, the supports for art already exist, winery, restaurant, etc.

    Certainly my first reaction is that it looks like it might Teeple in a high wind.
