**Thread title typo, should be Flo Condos
Is it my browser that I see only a blank page at flocondos.com? There is not much info on Devron Developments site either ("Coming Soon"). Travis, do you know anything about this project? Which part of Yonge and Sheppard?
Website says just steps from Yonge and Sheppard.
Must be - it's working on Safari on a Mac.
No, both urbanation and investican are reporting it's at 9 Bales Av North York, corner of FLOrence.
gawd, the first thing that came to my mind was 'aunt flo' .... ehhh, terrible name
Kiss my grits.
Thanks UD ... hmm now I'm wondering what that project @ Sheppard & Dudley is called ~
Although things could have changed...here is a city staff report from 2008.....http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2008/ny/bgrd/backgroundfile-12233.pdf
Looks like 12 storeys. Architect is Kirkor.
That one (NW corner) is called Monacle. There was a thread on it but I can't seem to find it. I was involved with the project but do not know the current status since moving to Vancouver in November (planning applications had not been submitted at that time). IMO it would definitely up the ante for architecture in and around the NYCC area.

The sales office at Yonge and Avondale has Flo Condo signage up and a wooden construction fence with some signs is up around 9 and 15 Bales Avenue.
I have absolutely no idea how people would be dumb enough to purchase a unit in this condo. How were they able to get permission to build in an area so crowded, so close to yonge, in an area so heavily populated and so close to a residential property? Any one who is even considering this condo should back away now or you will regret it. I live on harrison garden blvd and i'm already regretting it and its further away from yonge, away from all the traffic. Traffic is horrific as it is and neither the menkes building nor aristo nor the townhomes are occupied yet! Imagine what it will be like? Imagine what going to work would be like while construction takes up the right lane of avondale? I have no idea how the city would permit this, knowing that thousands of people only have one way onto yonge at a set of lights! It takes 20 minutes each morning to exit!!! It is absolutely insane that the city would permit such a ludacris idea to erect. Does no one understand that enough is enough with these condos. There are too many of them and they are built like crap! My condo is already falling apart and i haven't even been in there for a year! There is a committee hearing for zoning adjustments on june 30th...definitely attending that one and speaking my mind, on behalf of myself, my street, my subdivision and the poor neighbour next door who is one foot away from their property line who i'm sure will be there.
