@BlacktowerTV has a new picture of this one up on his feed. Not sure how it differs from earlier images, but thought it might be worth bringing this project back to the front of everyone's minds.

From city planning....
375 QUEEN ST W
Site Plan Approval 11 310785 STE 20 SA Ward 20
- Tor & E.York Nov 16, 2011 --- --- --- ---
Site plan approval application to permit the redevelopment of the lands for the purposes of a seven storey plus mechanical non residential building containing retail at grade and retail/office uses above. Part of the prosed building from the second to the seventh floor inclusive will be constructed over that part of Jack Cooper Lane in order that it may be connected to the development occurring on the adjacent lands to the rear at 134 Peter Street. A similar conection is also proposed over the portion of the public lane separating 375 Queen Street West and 375 R Queen Street West. Parking for the development is to be scured in an offsite location.
Are the numerous spelling errors in this report owing to anticipated budget cuts?
From Friday Dec 9/2011
I like going to Nicky's coffee for those cute little donuts--wonder where they'll move to when the rest of the development starts?
Canadian architecture I like: http://renderpornstar.com/
What's all the bracing for BTW?
Bracing for the Masonry walls, so they dont collapse, as the interior slabs will be demo'd and rebuilt inclusive of those Steel X Frames.
If it is, does anyone know whether they plan on reinstalling the original wood beams and floors after they install the steel piles for the glass building above, or will the new floors for this part of the building be a modern concrete construction instead?
Historic Toronto building to get steel delta frame for stabilization
Before construction starts on the 13-storey office building that makes up part of the Queen Richmond Centre West development in downtown Toronto, extensive modifications to the 97-year-old brick-and-beam structure on the site are required.
The objective is to stabilize the four-storey historic building to allow for a new interior while maintaining the existing bricks and mortar shell, says Chris Adach, project manager, M&G Steel Ltd., the steel fabricator for the contract.
The new interior will include a steel delta frame system engineered to support the 13-storey building which will be constructed above the historic structure
To stabilize the old four-storey building, a temporary steel structure consisting of twelve 50-foot-tall “steel towers” or columns are being inserted through the roof and down the interior walls to below the existing foundation where underpinning for a new foundation is created to stabilize the old masonry facade, Adach says.
Does anyone know how is Queen/Richmond Centre (no west) at 111 Queen East being used? http://alliedpropertiesreit.com/en_t...-queene111.php
It is a beautiful building but there doesn't seem to be any signs/banners showing what it is for.
the website says it is offices but not sure why you would post that here?
