    Hah! That's tall! I don't have a problem with it, considering it's walking distance to Davisville station, but we know who will.

    122.4m. They try to compare it to the proposal at 1951 Yonge (116.8m) and other 30 or less storey buildings to justify it. Even MYC at 1815 Yonge doesn't come close at 93.8m.

    I live in the area. It's a bustling little node. Plenty of stuff nearby to support building up. Merton itself is kind of an interesting mix of condos, apartments, and mid-rise offices and a smattering of retail.

    Very happy about this one, excellent addition of housing units and street presence will be much better than the current parking lot.

    The alleyway next to the building is being maintained I am sure, yes? When walking home from St. Clair, this alleyway is very useful, especially if leaving from the cemetery.

    it's interesting to see the mid-town planning review artificially imposes a height of 17-20 stories to reflect transition of height/density from Davisville station southwards...
