23 storeys tower fronting Yonge Street, 108 metres, hotel / residential, 3 levels underground parking
30 storeys tower fronting McMurrich Street, 87 metres, 100% residential, 5 levels underground parking
Requesting 14.8 FSI (wow!)
906 Yonge Street - 23 storey hotel
25 McMurrich Street - 30 storey condo
The 35-storey tower would be one of the slenderest in the city - less than 50 feet wide north-south.
The Tudor Revival style of Ridpath's is great.
The second working group meeting took place on 9th May 2011. Ridpath's presented details of their
revised proposal: a 20-storey boutique hotel (down from original 30-storey hotel and condominium) on
the Yonge Street site, with a 3-storey sky garden cut-out to provide space between the Yonge Street hotel
and 900 Yonge Street sub-penthouse and penthouse terraces which, in fact, would result in a 23-storey
building, and a 30 storey (up from original application of 28 storeys) building on McMurrich. The three
McMurrich Street townhouses which were part of the original proposal, have now been replaced with a
residential lobby covering the entire McMurrich frontage. Other details will be available in the working
group meeting notes being prepared by the office of Councillor Wong-Tam and will be included in the
June 2011 GYRA Report.
