    I was reading an investor newsletter this early AM--will find the link and post it here--that Greenpark has been buying up this strip. It's the site immediately to the west of the Monarch/Goldman Group's 318 Richmond St W site by Teeple. A row of 3-4 rundown Victorian homes and the 332 Loft building.

    Suddenly the city is looking rather foolish investing all that money in that homeless shelter on the corner--maybe Rob Ford will wisely flip it to a developer?

    I'd expect a rezoning ap perhaps by Summer 2012...

    Why would they even bother calling that area the entertainment district anymore?

    Come on, it's not like the area has collapsed, there are still lots of clubs.

    …but yeah, it's no longer at its height.

    The Assessment and Referral Centre is an important part of the Streets to Homes program.

    did anybody bother reading this article? they took a picture of the Picasso site and labelled it as 324 Richmond, going so far as to even talk about "losing another parking lot" when in fact the Greenpark site consists of the rowhouses adjacent (to the west). Weak reporting.

    I saw another rendering snooping around somewhere. It has many setbacks I suppose to preserve views from Picasso. It's sort of a bland glass tower I think it needs some brick or interesting cladding to shake it up a bit and also to continue the feel of the area.
