    At first, I thought: "Madison Avenue?!? Where on earth...the Annex NIMBYS would be up in arms!". Then I figured it out: it's that ill-known stub of Madison *north* of the tracks. (Ah, street numbers on Madison advance slowly...)

    yeah there's some bizarre parking lots on madison just north of bloor that need condo-ized; then there's that Restaurant (?) Union building or whatever at madison and bloor. Lotsa potential around that area.

    Not a bad looking proposal here--aimed at George Brown-types I guess?

    Nice scale and design...looks kind of dutch. Looks like a green roof on there too. It appears to be partially aimed at families.

    A warmer, friendlier more intimate version of District Lofts--bridges across to thy neighbours (which@District Lofts I rarely saw used.) I guess the location here kind of sucks (next to ugly noisy RR) so they need funky architecture to sell it. What's on the site now? I'm not too familiar with the area but obvious it's right across the street from those mid-90's high-end townhouses and the Archives building.

    the site has a one storey industrial type building that's masquerading as a bungalow.

    The bridges at the District Lofts are access for fire exists so they shouldn't be used at all. In this case, it looks like the outdoor walkways might be the main access to the units. Not something you see to often around here.

    Agreed, I've been waiting for years to here that the CRFA is moving and that prime Bloor site will be redeveloped.

    WRT to 200 Madison Ave, it looks great!

    I don't believe anything has happened yet, but given the typical delay in projects starts and construction in the city maybe there's still hope for this in the near future (hopefully?).

    Is there another redevelopment project north of the street on the opposite side?
