    I'm sure the McGill-Granby neighbourhood association will have a conniption over the height, but I hope the builder gets everything they're asking for. The more eyes on the street that we can get at that location the better. Hopefully we get a nicely animated base to get some pedestrian traffic on Jarvis as well. I'd love to see a nice restaurant/pub there, with a patio looking out at the park.

    Excellent location for intensification. I really like how Upper Jarvis has cleaned up quite well, but it gets quite dodgy south of Carlton. A development here should really enhance the streetscape and freshen up some new life for this stretch.

    This will shadow the park, no?. The city won't go for that.

    As shadows are generally cast northward, it looks like only the church on the north west corner of the park will subject to any shadows.

    Well, in that case, given Toronto's anti-Christian sentiment this should go ahead without a hitch.

    Maybe Gord was implying that our population is made up of a lot of non-Christians, and immigrants who practice different faiths. Somehow that correlation determined that Toronto=anti-Christian.

    agreed.
    Only a few days ago I was suggesting some highrises should be proposed overlooking Allen Garden and Moss Park to improve the downtown east side, and here it is.
    Jarvis is a beautiful street, fantastic location, wide streets, many historian houses yet vastly underutilized. Between Carlton and Queen, there is a lot to be done. I hope there will be more than just condos, as Jarvis needs business to become a more vibrant street to walk on.

    The more challenging part is actually between Queen and Gerrard, particularly near Dundas/Shuter. Can't wait for something interesting proposed at that section. It got a lot better south of Queen/Richmond though.

    I think even that is a small percentage to the population of Christian faith in Toronto.

    Every new condo built along Jarvis (and Church Street, for that matter) needs to have some serious retail on the ground level. That should be the general rule with all development of major streets downtown.

    Don't worry. At Urbantoronto.ca, we hate all religions equally.

    So the outline of 308 only is in red, while the vacant lot (and historic house) are next to it outlined in blue.

    308 alone seems like an awfully narrow site to be putting five hundred feet on. Does anyone know if any of the adjacent lots will be included?
