    I've been wondering how long it would take someone to propose something for that lot. It's pretty sizable. I'm assuming the property is both the building and the parking lot right? Any idea who owns it?

    oh yay, I hope as many downtown surface lots be filled with something during this round of boom as possible. There are too many of them wherever you walk!

    I'd like to see some of these Entertainment District projects have significant retail components for a supermarket and/or useful big box retail (Ikea, Target, Home Depot, etc) like Tribute's Queen-Portland development. Probably won't happen here but for example, this lot is massive and would be quite suitable for such retail incorporated into the podium to service the growing number of area residents. Fresh & Wild is alright but is not enough. College Park (and vicinity) now has 3 supermarkets, while the nearest for ED residents is Cityplace or Queen/Portland. As thousands of new residents are moving into this district, there will be an increasing need for more amenities.

    Any idea if this includes the associated parking lot? If so, this is a huge space.

    Entertainment District?

    I would like to see a condo be built in the Entertainment District that retains the club space it's being built on. What entertainment will there be in this district? Marshall's? More Shopper's Drug Mart's? We're losing unique businesses to box stores. Why would anyone who lives in downtown Toronto want to shop at a Costco!? The Entertainment District is going to be about as attractive to tourist from out of city and the burbs as the Bay St Canyon is. Subway sandwich shops and Second Cup.

    It doesn't have to be a Shoppers and won't be a Marshall's, but there can always be an opportunity to mix up the retail of the area. Right now there are loads of restaurants showing up, but a neighbourhood doesn't live on restaurants alone.

    Eek!

    Menkes is the developer.

    Also Great lands is assembling the east part of this block.

    I hope they don't touch that row of houses on Widmer.

    Bisha is supposed to have a bar/lounge and 24-hour cafe on the ground floor, as well as a restaurant on the second and third floor.

    Good. That means they can put the residential and vehicle entrance where the parking lot is at the northeast corner and leave those townhouses on Widmer to be refurbished... I hope.
