    Vancouver's long-awaited Ritz-Carlton hotel is one example of a stalled development. The builder says it's because he wants to make some tweaks to the design but the delays have unnerved some who have put down deposits on units. They're beginning to panic that their investment is also about to be gutted.

    It's been changed on the site too.

    Nothing like a mid-morning heart-attack to get your day going.

    That would depend on how many posts per page you have set in your profile

    Last report was that work has recommenced. Not sure how definite that is, but it is unlikely that this project will be stalled forever.

    I am having trouble finding any corroboration that work has recommenced on the Vancouver RC. Do you have a source you can quote on that?

    Went by the Ritz today and was a little bit taken aback.... we all know that the east/west elevations show a very narrow tower that ultimately cantilevers out to the south... but... the north/south footprint (da big part of da building) is shockingly thin too.... this is going to be a very small but tall tower.

    The Ritz renders have widen the building's appearance from the north/south beyond belief, compared to the emerging footprint.

    I just realized I've never see a real city document with actual elevations.... has anyone else see it??? Pretty sure it's no where on UT.
    I'm off to my aA meeting but they haven't helped much so far (recovery seems out of reach when you are boxed in).

    I just looked now and couldn't find any City Planning staff reports ... maybe this site was "pre-zoned" and did not require any OPA or ZBA, therefore it would have only been a Site Plan Approval process delegated to staff review (and maybe minor variance?)

    Can anyone working for City of Toronto confirm ~

    See post here:

    The apparent reason for the stoppage was Holborn's unauthorized encroachment on the neighbouring parcel with anchors for the shotcrete walls.

    Yes 3D.

    I also noticed this tower is very thin, from all angles.

    Thanks Officedweller! How did they manage to cross the property line? Poorly surveyed, or willful trespass? Either way, it's rather amazing!

    In regards to our Ritz, yup, this is going to be quite the svelte landmark.

    Glass cladding has started to go up on the first few levels on the east side facing RBC. They are covering a blank wall. Too far away to tell how good they look.
