    Interesting that Onni is only pursuing 32s here. I would have thought that for their final piece they would have shot (much) higher.

    Good to see this, I was wondering what was taking so long for Onni to get this one moving.

    What is Block 4 (not 4a) going to be used for? Is there any plan for a community centre?

    I recall that some sort of a height restriction is in place due to the proximity with Fort York. Can anyone confirm this?

    Can't find the exact reference at the moment, but I believe that there are height restrictions due to the city's concern regarding the condo towers shadows over Fort York.

    This one has a name now. Fortune at Fort York.

    fortune-fortyork.

    It it just me or do most of the City of Toronto websites only work in bits and pieces? All I can seem to download from the above link is the survey.

    No problems at all. Maybe your internet sucks. It's not the City's website that's the problem.

    Nope - I have experienced the same issues as PE, though it is specific to documents in the development application portal and not the City of Toronto site at large.

    Maybe your internet can't handle downloading such large files. I've never experienced that before. Weird.

    Highly unlikely, whatever it throws at me pales in comparison to what I get off Steam in size.
