    I have no hesitation in saying that building upon the laneway plan for East Yorkville would be a certainty.

    There's a neighbourhood plan in the works. Not sure how many months away from completion. The maps shows up at various neighbourhood consultations, and may be online somewhere. Too tired to look right now!

    Yorkville East of Bay Planning Framework
    http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/c...nnel=1be452cc66061410VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD

    There is a map at the last page of this PDF (July 2014)
    http://www1.toronto.ca/City Of Toro... Planning/Files/pdf/Y/Yorkville Framework.pdf

    There are approvals for a 102.9 metre tower on the south side of Cumberland and a 170 metre tower just west of that.. part of the 2 Bloor West site.

    Here are the Built Form Objectives for this site (2-8 Cumberland St. and 830-834 Yonge, including heritage buildings):

    - satisfy all heritage Official Plan policies
    - continue the 7-metre wide linear pedestrian park system
    from Cumberland Street to Site No. 12
    - design tall building with a significantly limited floor plate
    (approximately 400 square metres) with no projecting
    balconies
    - tall building must be set back a minimum of 10 metres
    from Yonge Street and comply with the heritage principles
    contained in the City's Tall Building Guidelines
    - tall building must provide a minimum 25 metre tower
    separation or greater to tall building at Site No. 12 and a 3
    metre setback from Cumberland Street.

    Probably right, but perhaps under the stucco there is something decent - who knows.

    is it just me or does this mean that there is a single property left between One Yorkville and this?
