    Good news. King/Spadina needs some update. Spadina south of China needs more retail activities. It is too quiet right now and doesn't have any identity.

    I always hope the NW corner Hostel could be developed. It looks weird right on the intersection. I took a look at the map and it seems there are several lots/gas stations/two story concrete buildings waiting to developed (Between King and Queen).

    I agree the spot is good for intensification but the area already has major traffic problems. Has anybody been floating any ideas on improving the flow of traffic?

    With Allied involved could we expect the building facade to be retained and restored as the podium of any development? It's a little short at only two storeys but it would be a shame to lose a brick building along that stretch, as modest as it is.

    It should be part of the development next to it.

    It maybe a good chance for the group to take over that project based on the fact that the current developer wants to flip it for a profit from my point of view.

    It also needs a 2nd entrance and this building would provide it.

    I agree with retaining the brick facade as there needs to be more of them including the one next to it, since I am not a supporter of all glazing & current walls.

    Love the design and the use of the lane way. No formal application has been submitted to the city at this time.

    I see Diamond Corp have being working with Core on 401-415 King St W building to the point they balance each other as well the Hudson. The King building is a vast improve building, but still need a few more changes. The LBCO is to be on the 2nd floor now.

    The ideas put forth tonight could see the lane way between these 2 project being used by both of then jointly. They will review it as well the city.

    378 unites with 178 parking spots. Main entrance will be in a new wider lane way. Sidewalks will be wider for both projects than what there on on Spadina

    Too many parking spots. I proposed that the lane way be dug up if both projects go ahead at the same time and build parking levels there to be used jointly for visitors and commercial. The lane way would be rebuilt as plan.

    Mod's Note:: 37 floors

    Janet's laneway design is conceptually intriguing, love the Berlin inspirations. Although being a dead end passage, it may not end up having much lasting appeal for the casual passerby. Councillor Vaughan brought up an interesting point about potentially combining the rears of the Clarence Sq rowhouses into a public piazza but that may be more theoretic than realistic. Building design is rather pedestrian though, typical of DSAI to be safe and conventional but overall unremarkable.

    Thanks for that drum. So this has no office space? When did Allied start teaming up on pure residential?
