    And thank god for that. One is enough.

    I like Yorkville and I like King West, and both are upscale in different ways. King West definitely feels more 'hipster' and more casual where Yorkville definitely feels more 'establishment'. To be fair though, anecdotally speaking only of course, Yorkville is where i consistently encounter the most boorish and rude attitudes and behaviour in the city. Oh well, I can give as good as I receive, so no big deal.

    I lived in Yorkville ( on Scollard ) in '77, and it certainly wasn't a "dump" then - it was already gentrified and trendy. It was the centre for Toronto's commercial art galleries, there were fancy eateries like Noodles and Three Small Rooms in the Windsor Arms, and Hazelton Lanes was open. It was the late '80s/early '90s when it tipped into decline.

    Again, I would respectfully disagree that there has been any decline.

    Well, I meant that it was in decline around 1990. But now it seems quite perky again.

    That is true.. The Yorkville of the 90's I remember as a kid was not nearly as luxurious feeling as today's. It has come a very long way as a neighbourhood...

    Not really related but in the new Toronto Life there's an article about how Pusatieri's came to be at that location.

    To be fair, there was a recession around that time - so everywhere was in decline.

    Is that as deep as they're going? The ground is level...

    nooooooooo. They will have to go much deeper, I suspect.

    Depending on how many high end cars they want to pack into the basement levels.....

    They need to leave some dirt for the official groundbreaking

    I'm looking forward to this one. I think it's going to be a very handsome building.

    It is curious, though. Why would they level off so meticulously at one storey down?
