    Let the speculation begin...QQE has definitely become hot topic.

    With clubs disappearing, where will Toronto dance?

    I heard Freed bought some waterfront property--could this be it?

    It's Daniels, and they'd like to put their head offices here in addition to condos.

    Just a fanciful thought-to-self, but this would have been an incredible spot to showcase a BIG design. Being by the water and gateway-ing one of the city's rising districts. Or at least get Koolhaas to design a high-rise replacement of the Koolhaus.

    Haha, maybe in a different time and place...

    Funny you should mention both in the same vein - that's what Miami is doing with their landlocked convention centre.

    Personally, I am still waiting for our own Zaha Hadid, MVRDV and Renzo Piano.

    Interesting that Daniels might move their office here.

    Redeveloping this into something nice could do way more to jumpstart EB than the new ones east of Sherbourne. The big question for anyone living there I guess would be seeing Redpath every day. Could be kinda cool if you're on a high floor I suppose

    I'm generally saddened by how downtown is becoming purged of nightclubs, but I'm pretty happy to see the Guvernment go. This will mean far fewer cigarette butts and empty liquor bottles in Sugar Beach.

    True. And the Guvernment is pretty rubbish anyway. But we'll likely need another mid-size concert venue to replace it. I can't think of anything other than the Phoenix that's performing a similar function.

    Hopefully Daniels brings a good amenity to the neighbourhood in the process. Especially since they will be the reason for the demise of one of the cities greatest music venues.

    They should call it RPM Condos: Condos that rave you up.

    I can sympathize with the complaints about littering in the area, but just because you don't like or identify with a particular music scene doesn't mean it's "garbage". We should encourage a variety of venues of this sort, or as noted we will become quite boring.
