    Interesting. It doesn't suggest a larger consolidation of properties.

    Yes, one might have expected any plan to include the low-rise houses on King (Le Petit Déjeuner.etc). The former school/hotel is s great building so maybe it can be fixed up somewhat at the same time.

    16 units, one on each floor. Looks like it's a super luxury building.

    I'm not sure of the game plan there. I get reducing the windows in case of a future building but if the intent is to preserve the other three properties' development value, why put in any fenestration at all?

    The thread title has changed with the publication of the dataBase file, to reflect that the new condo will be known by its address at 65 George Street.

    The south facing facade is just ugly. I appreciate it isn't a wall of windows having sweated in a south facing office at King and Bay for a while. Of course, that's an unlikely reasoning for the reduction in vision glass

    Do you mean north? The south facade is vision glazing above 25 George Street.

    Front page article:
    As developable land becomes more scarce in Downtown Toronto, new developments are being proposed for increasingly small and restricted plots of land. The latest of these proposals is an interesting plan submitted to the City of Toronto a few days ago on behalf of property owner York London Holdings, proposing a slender residential tower tucked behind a heritage property at 187 King Street East.

    The luxury condominium development—to be known by the address 65 George Street—would rise behind the heritage 4-storey circa 1879-1880 building, originally known as the Little York Hotel. Designed by Core Architects, the 17-storey, 72-metre-tall condominium tower would contain just 16 units, with each level housing just one full-floor 2-bedroom + den suite, each with direct elevator access, and with either a private outdoor terrace or balcony.
