    BuzzBuzzHome is reporting that the Target Park parking lot--both Adelaide & Peter Street frontages--including the two older buildings at 350 & 352 Adelaide Street West--has been sold to Graywood Developments Ltd.

    Perhaps Mod Developments is teaming up with Graywood for another highrise condominium project similar to their arrangement at Five St Joseph? Maybe we'll get another HPA building?

    Not certain if the night club north of the Perkins Mansion/Zupa's is part of the deal.

    Let's hope they can save

    Interestingly, I was about to do a fantasy sketch for this site, with the building on stilts like at OCADU over the two heritage buildings.

    Looks like there's room for two towers--40 storeys on Adelaide and 36 storeys on Peter?

    Where it's urban. And dense.
    Interesting. I've been waiting for news about this site for ages.

    I thought this could be part of the Peter & Richmond development that Fortress/Carlyle is working on directly to the north.
    Though it looks like there is enough room for multiple towers on this block, the Templar Hotel will probably be surrounded on three sides with this development if Greywood acquires the building on the NW corner of Peter & Adelaide.

    why would you randomly suggest that MOD is involved?

    ^Not randomly: MOD hooked up with Graywood at Five.

    I know. but they each have done countless projects independent of the one-off example that you listed (and with other various partners).

    Confirmed. The preliminary design is something I think many on here will like. Not sure what this ever was: http://www.bbb.ca/dev/portfolio/duncan-mews/ - but think taller.

    In the plans I saw - both those buildings will go - the Templar and the old building on the corner will remain at the intersection

    I think both buildings should stay: then have a series of protruding boxes punching out of a curtainwall glass facade rising skyward kind of like Picasso only with brick cladding & decorative punched aluminium balconies.

    I would also love to see these buildings stay but the problem is that the land underneath them is just as valuable as the air above. Retaining the buildings means one cannot dig below them (without great difficulty) and utilize the site to its fullest. It's incredible (and somewhat maddening) the degree to which redevelopment schemes are dictated by an efficient parking layout.
