    D+S needs some new talent--really looks like a retread of Charlie meets SickKids meets Pace. What I call "polite Upper Canada Modernism." Blah.

    The King St. building in elevations A302 and A304 looks like it's flipping the bird to the east and the west.

  5. Default First Gulf Head Office

    Page 22 of the planning report implies First Gulf's new Head Office would be located in the new commerical building as well adding more space for George Brown:

    The new development will further strengthen the vibrant mixed-use character for the
    whole of the block through the integration of significant, new employment and residential
    uses and buildings of high architectural quality on the existing surface parking areas.
    This new development, combined with the existing, would generate approximately
    2,800 to 3,600 jobs in concert with introduction of new institutional and commercial
    employment uses, including First Gulf’s new head offices as well as additional space
    for George Brown.

    In terms of tenants, it is intended that this new office tower will be partly occupied by
    First Gulf’s new head offices as well as additional space for George Brown, amongst
    other tenants still to be determined.

    GREAT GULF / TORONTO SUN DEVELOPMENT OPEN HOUSE AND SEMINAR

    Hi everyone

    I noticed Great Gulf put flyers advising of a Public Open House and Information Seminar scheduled for Wednesday May 30th at 7 pm to 9 pm (tomorrow). It will be held at the 333 King Street vacant retail unit at the east end of the retail space on King Street. It will be interesting to see what they present regarding the 3 new towers they are proposing

    Thanks for the info robertotoronto.

    I have to say there is something very satisfying about the adapt/reuse/intensify aspects of this site/project.

    Glad to see the building's getting a new life. Can't say I like the design at all however. Looks like an utterly goofy hat the old building is sporting.

    Those silver bands are not the final cladding. You can see a couple pieces of the final, dark cladding on the upper left of cruzin4u's first photo

    Final cladding or not it still looks out of place.

    The silver panels make me think of a bottle cap.
