    South-east corner of Yonge & Scollard listed on CBRE as a retail and condominium development opportunity site. Currently occupied by three small low-rise properties with various retail units. Adjacent to the 18 Yorkville tower and "the Villas" mid-rise condos. Really thin sliver of a site, but the .pdf file lists several potential development concepts of rather high density. Couple of nice skyline shots in there too.

    It looks like there are plans for a "luxury" high-rise at this site (which seems quite small).

    From Graybook Capital's website (http://www.greybrook.com/real-estate-investments/):

    1 Scollard
    • Provided equity capital and ongoing asset management to purchase an interest in a property located at the corner of Yonge Street and Scollard Avenue in Toronto, Ontario, the gateway to Toronto’s Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood.

    • Location: 874, 876 and 878 Yonge Street, Toronto
    • Luxury high-rise condominium project

    • Developer Partners: Fernbrook Homes and Cityzen Development Group
    • Total Equity: $12,850,000
    From a recent blog dated August 21, 2015:

    We are pleased to announce that the award-winning firm, KPMB Architects (“KPMB”) has been selected to head the design process at 1 Scollard Street at the corner of Yonge St. and Scollard in the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood. Led by renowned architect and co-founder Bruce Kuwabara, KPMB has created a diverse portfolio of work for educational, cultural, healthcare, civic and corporate clients throughout North America and Europe....

    Their style is conservatively modern, but they tend to design sophisticated buildings. They've worked on a number of American projects recently at leading universities and in major cities. They're exporting design, which is good for the local economy.

    Based on the design I'm guessing that it is in fact it is the auditing firm.

    Only an accountant could propose something so boring.

    Material-wise, yes; but virtually no imagination in terms of design. They really pushed the envelope with Ice, though.
