    Looks like redevelopment of the former post office site in Leslieville, also a bit of parking/loading space to build on.

    It would certainly be a boon for the area east of Pape to see a development like this.

    I think 8 stories is the prefect height for main streets like Queen or Danforth.

    I don't see anything in the zoning amendment which involves reducing bicycle parking, but the front page article says the site will only provide 38 spaces.

    The zoning for this site requires:

    So for 50 units, that's 45 long-term (indoor) spaces and 5 visitor spaces.

    Needs some retail at ground level, but other than that...the design is fine!

    ^its got retail.

    Are all these proposals across the city a certain theme or something? They are all called "Oben Flats", are around the same scale, and oddly enough are all rentals.

    I think it's a design concept for the firm. Or less likely, a common branding for the actual apartment buildings.
