Empire Communities purchases 140 Yorkville Avenue, just east of Avenue Road for $4.2 million, planning 38-storey tower with 342 units.
That's an awfully small property. I wonder what else they acquired along with it. If they've also got Avenue Rd. frontage I could see a 38s tower working, but if it's midblock on Yorkville they're going to have a real battle for that kind of height
Looks like it's the small commercial building next to the Hazelton. It's actually an interesting building with the split staircase and all, only ruined by the fact that one of those staircases leads to a Subway restaurant (using the term rather loosely). Something tells me this won't go up without a big fight.

Why do ppl continually confuse Yorkville with Yorkdale? Yorkdale is a low class boring shopping mall.
Ok, you don't like malls, but you do realize Yorkdale has something like the highest sales per square foot of any mall in North America.Why do ppl continually confuse Yorkville with Yorkdale? Yorkdale is a low class boring shopping mall.
