    The former 'Shore Breeze Motel' has been acquired by Chestnut Hill Homes and rezoning+OPA applications have been submitted recently for a 34s residential + 3s commercial proposal ...

    yup, another motel down, several more to go ~ :)

    According to the September edition of City's Development Applications Listing: "The proposal is a mixed residential-commercial public park development, including a building with a 3-storey high commercial element and a 34-storey residential tower connected via a 2-storey podium. South of residential tower will be a new landscaped park"

    City Planning Preliminary Staff Report is expected in November 2008.

    Location Context: (Mr. Christies on the left, Gardiner Expressway on the top-left, Monarch's Waterview on the top-right by Brookers Lane, Conservatory's Waterways @ 2143-2147 Lake Shore, Greywood's proposal @ 2157 Lake Shore)

    Duck, cover and roll.... welcome to the earthquake zone.

    Kind of a fun and wonky spin... a low budget version of Absolut Marilyn that creates some visual nonsense by using different balcony depths on a rectangular slab.

    Why not? A little bit Clewe-less but fun.

    I like it. I don't normally go for what Shocker calls 'easy sell curves,' but I think this one handles them nicely. It will be a good addition to an area which has seen much mediocrity in the recent past.

    I like the building, but I don't like the roof. I think it should just be as flat as possible on the roof, with no extra bulk.

    This is the neighbourhood of bizarre roofs. Flat roofs are, apparently, unwelcome. But I agree, the inverted slope is out of place.

    Ah yes, you are right about that. Wacky rooftops are what this area does best.

    Even in todays shaky market this is a great investment area,close to the lake with great views. There will difinetly be many people scooping them up,lets just hope the developers have the backing and money to build them.

    2175 Lake Shore

    Proposal..." Parts 1-3 are in the ownership of South Beach (Lakeshore) Developments and Part 4 is owned by the TRCA, granting subsurface rights of Part 4 to South Beach."


    Does this imply as I read it that the parkland ( open space will remain subject to an underground parking garage of How many levels How many parkings spots?

    Will the TRCA lands be used for public parking or is this converting an asset to condo ownership where parking spaces will be sold??

    The conclusion that is possible, IMHO, are a number of garage access BUNKERS that service the buildings off of Marine Parade Dr.

    It's kitschy trash, but it fits into the surrounding neighbourhood. Humber Bay is our gaudy entranceway.

    Nice photo Solaris, it doesn't even look like Toronto from this angle. How high up were you?
