    Not surprising. With all of the changes in Regent Park and in the area overall, this area is ripe for intensification.

    Does anyone care to take a guess about how long it'll be from here to demolition?

    I think you have that wrong - 7994m2 is 0.007994km2

    About time.... it's a low-key, grungy little area but I could see the appeal of tall residential lining the Don. I remember working out of some cheap and dive-y office space for a movie of the week down on Labatt... that was maybe fifteen years ago now. The area was particularly creepy late at night. It's getting better but it's still rough around the edges and there's still some shady business being conducted on the corners and in the back alleys located south of the Mercedes dealership and north of Shuter. Given the surging state of this town it's inevitable that there be a gentrification push eastward.

    I stand corrected.

    I definitely look forward to some new development in this area. Long overdue!

    And for my part I want to say that proposing over 50,000 ft.² of retail space and over 80,000 ft.² of office space in that area is pretty impressive.

    Indeed. I wish the three rather ugly apartment towers at River and Gerrard can be redeveloped as well.

    Thanks! This one has fallen off my radar - in any case, not terribly happy about that plan.

    There has been a resubmitted application. This project is now one tower with 38 floors at 120m.

    The architects are Diamond Schmitt Architects.
