    What the heck is going on with that podium design. Bike storage on the fifth floor? Also, 382 sq ft of retail, really??

    There's another level of retail on B1 - the 382sf looks just to be a lobby to get down to the main space

    Aha, you are right. That's still pretty weird, though. Subterranean retail with a tiny lobby at street level? Who's going to lease that?

    Sounds like the kind of space dollarama tends to gravitate towards

    From the Architectural Plans:

    upload_2016-7-13_9-7-33.

    upload_2016-7-13_9-9-27.
    upload_2016-7-13_9-7-48.

    Awful - and long with the proposed 31A Parliament - it's cramming.

    The proportions are really weird. The podium looks like it was made in Minecraft, and the staggered crown feature just looks awkward. Not enough transitional floors for such a dramatic overhang. I like how skinny it is but it's a clunker.

    I am guessing there will be a phase 2 directly north of this. Google maps has a Cityzen logo on the Krown site at 33 Parliament.

    ETA: Is this a new version of 31A Parliament St?

    Bike parking that high is regrettable. I wonder if the excessive amount of parking (and that lower level commercial space) means they will be looking for paid public parking in the building?

    It is not. 31A/R is visible in the above diagrams (to the east of this property).

    Don't think it is. 31A is shown clearly in the plans as a separate structure.

    usuallly when there is above ground parking it is for public purposes - I believe the zoning by-law doesn't permit above ground parking unless it's public.
