    tip from urbanation's twitter:

    As I predicted, looks like Casa v2.0 is coming to block your views.:D

    It's the YMCA building: http://www.urbandb.com/canada/ontario/toronto/ymca-of-greater-toronto/

    My prediction: It'll be another aA stunner, but probably not a Casa knockoff. Ask for 55s, get 49s.

    Chaz north view buyers just had a heart attack. haha.

    Good find UD. This is a great street to build on, being only a block from the Y&B subways. The next properties to go will probably be the old mansions east of the post office, they're in rough shape.

    Maybe Cresford should actually finish BSN before they attempt to build something else.

    Maybe Cresford should fix their deficiencies at Merchandise Lofts, Quad Lofts, Windermere, NXT1 and Casa before they build something else!

    Missing mullion caps on BSN's ugly green 'crown.' Very irritating. Fix this first, Cresford!

    Urbanation just posted that Cresford plans to launch a 64 storey condo in early 2011. Current site of YMCA.

    Oh. My. Various. Gods![/Apu]

    This neighborhood is going TALL! I wonder how this will compare in height to One Bloor and Four Seasons? It should be around the 200m mark, at first glance.

    This just made my day.
    Now have a international design competition and that would make my month :p

    With this we will now truly have two main peaks in our skyline with the help of four seasons and one bloor.

    It sounds as though preliminary sales will start in a few weeks. There must be some planning documents floating around somewhere; or is this a case of 'sell first, ask question later'?
