    One of the parking lots I'd most like to see be developed. This site was one of the contenders for the Provincial Archives which is now moving to York University. Someone's drilling core samples this morning. Any ideas out there as to what's planned here?

    No idea, but that would be an amazing parking lot to go away!!!

    That parking lot is at Church and Colborne, just south of King (Lombard is between Adelaide and Richmond).

    Sorry early morning. I should know better considering I've lived here for 10 years.

    I agree, this would be amazing to see something built on it, since it would balance out Colborne and make it a nice, intimate street.

    Well, they're wearing Manulife-green hard hats;)

    Would the city allow a super tall here? Closest thing tall would be Spire and that's not even 500 feet.

    A super tall wouldn't go here, no P.A.T.H access, and way to close to St James and the Esplanade. Though I wouldn't be opposed to it.

    Something along the lines of MOZO or Spire would be perfect. Can't wait to see this one go too. It's only a matter of time.

    Nothing as tall as Spire could go there. It would darken the park.

    be interesting what will eventually happen to the southern corners of the Church & King intersection- each lot is about a width of the typical storefront and are next to historical buildings (unclear if the west side is an extension of this lot)

    maybe a billboard with a Manulife advertisement then?

    I think it should have the same massing as the King Eddy- maybe even with some setbacks- a' la NY.

    Yes, I think something around that height would be about right.
