    This site just south of Davenport was recently sold for $6m by DTZ Barnicke. Used to be a gas station. I was thinking 5-8 residential storeys with retail at grade.

    $6M seems a bit cheap for a lot in that neck of the woods....Maybe the land is contaminated from when it was a gas station??????

    I believe any land which had a gas station needs to be remediated, esp if converting to residential. That's probably a reason for the lower price.

    First thought that came to mind was neo-Gaudi. Is Avenue Rd-Yorkville ready for this bold statement?

    Yes! Good to see other Toronto architects are re-thinking brutalism with contemporary materials, just like that annoying NimbyTect :)

    The design is interesting but again, the retail is terrible. Developers seem to give very little thought to retail spaces. I guess they expect the tenant to animate the space but that frequently doesn't happen. Places like nail salons just throw up a very cheap sign, and away they go. We need to demand much better design and more interesting materials.
