    Southeast corner of Bay and Gerrard

    There was a crew drilling for soil samples on the parking lot at the corner of Bay and Gerrard this morning. Considering it's rapidly rising neighbours, I expect a very tall proposal here.

    It's owned by the Delta, isn't it? I can't see them starting anything here until they get their other building in Southcore finished

    I thought that this Delta Hotel had nothing to do with the other being built at Southcore..
    this very well could be a future retail/condo tower addition and complete overhaul to that aging hotel.

    Maybe the owners of the Delta Chelsea will rebrand and expand the hotel? It's already the biggest hotel in Canada, so maybe they want to make it some sort of mega-mid-range hotel with more convention space, etc? And yeah, I'm sure any proposal will have condos plopped on top.

    I'd much prefer they rebuilt than just expand -- that building has got to be one of most mediocre, bland chunks of concrete in the city.

    The Delta Chelsea, being a hotel especially, is an icon and has its roots spread deep into that area's history. I'd hate to see it go.

    Awesome!!! Always thought that parking lot had potential. This proposal is on the same block of Gerrard as Aura so hopefully people stop saying that Aura is too tall for its location. Aura will be a catalyst to the area if anything.

    Perfect spot for a 50-storey building. Now to get something built on that parking lot just north of the bus station on Bay St.
