    Ready for excavation. You can see the crane for 5 St. Joseph in the background. Those cottages are now bookended by 2 developments. It's going to be a noisy dusty 2 or 3 years.

    ^ Surely pile driving still needs to be done right?

    Maybe excavation wasn't the right choice of words but they were digging along the west perimeter of the site.

    They're getting rid of the former building's foundations. A tease for many on sites like this, it is however necessary a necessary step in the construction of new buildings on occupied sites.

    Even though they are using 100' shoring beams 24 WF 55, they are only digging down 75'

    OT - but I would love to see some kind of restoration/conversion of the Scientology building. It has a very late 40s/early 50s feel to it.

    It doesn't really need a whole lot of work on the outside aside from brick cleaning. A chiller on the roof and HVAC for central air in the interior would rid the windows of the a/c units, matching double paned clear glass and consistent window coverings would sharpen this baby right up. Brother's restaurant returning to the "testing" area would be a dream, but it's only a dream.

    Yup you're right - brick cleaning and replacing the windows/HVAC work would have done wonders. Couldn't find it on 696 Yonge on the Heritage listing. so that could be an issue. Oh Brothers - have had so many umpteen breakfasts there years ago, rather miss it (and it was a watering hole for the cops., who ALWAYS sit at the rear).
