    33 stories is probably appropriate, this is the SE corner of McGill, currently a non-descript two-floor office building.

    This could have made a nice site for a Ryerson residence and/or academic space.

    33 seems reasonable for a lot that size, and it's already got high rise neighbours on the same block so this shouldn't get too much opposition. It might also serve to help Menkes make their case for 365 to get 30 storeys

    I am sure the McGill-Granby Village Residents’ Association will have something to say about it.

    33 stories is fine for this location, but for that parking lot across the street, beside the Barn, a <15 storey midrise would be much more appropriate.

    Actually, I'm sure prospective buyers, or the lack of them, will have more of a say about what gets built (or doesn't) at this location.

    Well, that student residence across the street at Gerrard/Church could've applied for 30+ storeys, but they couldn't get it approved, so I wouldn't assume that applying for quadruple what was approved across the street would fly. Remember, the 50 storey monolith proposed south of the Primrose ... that site was already approved for 18 storeys, so asking for 50 storeys isn't going to happen either.

    Balcony treatments are what passes for "design" for a lot of Toronto buildings these days...

    might be more than a balcony affect here, though we will have to wait to see.

    Those elevation drawings look interesting. This building should compliment well with Wallman's (revised) 365 Church design.
