    28 River Street is the beer store site opposite Queen City Vinegar Co Lofts/Toronto Humane Society.

    It's in the early stages but looks like we'll see another midrise here. Would love to see another 383 Sorauren-style red brick aA building here c.2021.

    This will make the absence of a nearby LCBO that much more apparent; the beer store at Gerrard is also going to get crushed. That said, as a local, i'm totally okay with what lies ahead here.

    Appropriately busy for RAW. Not bad, but no showstopper either.

    It's relatively restrained for RAW, I can live with it - over some of their other projects.

    Yeah, I'll take it. It's not stellar but it's not offensive either. I like the general massing but the spandrel action is a bit much. Let's see if they keep the brick in the ballpark, colour-wise.

    Why does the render show a podium/tower at Queen/River on the NE corner where the Humane Society building currently is?

    I like the orange brick a lot, but this building is a REAL CLUNKER, especially from the street. No setback whatsoever and it packs the entire lot. Looms over the mid-rise buildings next door. I wish it were more like 510 King East (right around the corner) in terms of massing. I hope it gets a couple of storeys knocked off and the design improves significantly.

    I guess River City Phase 1 isn't included in Corktown these days - and all the towers at RP

    TIL that a new subway line (DRL) with a station a 4 minute walk away cannot even absorb 53 new peak transit trips (per the transportation impact statement), that 65 parking spaces resulting in 22 peak new trips (roughly 1 car every 3 minutes) will result in EXTREME increases in traffic, that an area with extensive growth apparently is already bursting at the seams for sewage capacity, that 6 storeys is the absolute neighborhood limit despite numerous taller buildings in the immediate area, and more.
