    Sign is up for this new project. Will occupy the parking lot behind Toronto's First Post Office (east side of George across from Vue)

    I just saw this sign yesterday too. Very interesting. Do you know for a fact it will only occupy the parking lot or also the building north of it, like mentioned in the Vu thread.

    So are we looking at a Freed-style midrise or another 40+ storey tower? Or is the existence of this proposal (and its location and developer) all we know right now?

    I think this project is only about this parking lot. The two buildings to the north are owned by another company (First Gulf?).

    The fellow that owns the parking lot also owns the heritage buildings on Adelaide. Wonder if he'll integrate the two?

    Sun Life Issurance owns the buildings to the north (109 George), they bought them from First Gulf.

    Alterra purchased 105 George as a severance from 252 & 260 Adelaide (to the south).

    I have not seen a development application for the site.

    There was a re-zoning application for a ~18 storey tower a few years ago.

    Severance? So Alltera moved here from their last location? Where are they now if they're building something here?

    November 10 2008 update

    here's the site ~ immediately next to a nice heritage building (to the south)

    according to the sales person for VU condos, Alterra put in applications has applied for Post House condos to be 16 storey ... I wonder how many floor would be approved

    Vu salesperson mentioned that The St. Lawrence Market Association is pretty vocal and has strict height restrictions in the area. 15/16s may be the limit. AR had huge problems getting Vu approval for the 25s tower (originally 32+s ???)

    That does seem to reflect the heights of many projects east of Jarvis like MOZO, Kings Court, The Richmond, Modern, Space, Rezen, East, etc.

    It's not going to open for sales for a while.

    A shame that they cut down a bunch of beautiful mature trees for nothing.
