    Toronto | 3100 Bloor Street West | 48.6m | 13s | Tridel | Kirkor Architects

    Sad to see the Former Toronto Maple Leafs owner Harold Ballard's house being demolished. The house on Montgomery Rd. will be taken down to make way for the new Tridel Condo. Who wants to attempt to get this registered as a Toronto Heritage Property ? Wink Wink :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Toronto | 3100 Bloor Street West | 48.6m | 13s | Tridel | Kirkor Architects

    This would be an incredible development ! A sexy midrise on Bloor / Montgromery would work well here ... and Perhaps some street front retail with restaurants and patio would be a bonus.

    Toronto | 4 Beamish Drive | 108m | 32s | Amdev | Graziani + Corazza

    It's preposterous that they would only develop 3 homes on that street. How can this be allowed? There are still 2 and 3 houses north and south remaining. And who are the other landowners that did not sell their existing houses on that street? The city should enforce stricter planning...

    Toronto | 293 The Kingsway | 33.9m | 9s | The Benvenuto Group | BDP Quadrangle

    There were underground utility / drainage / services issues that require re-engineering. This is not confirmed, but was heard thru a trusted source. Also, the other rumour is the partnership with Tridel in developing the condo portions is taking considerable effort to develop. I...

    Toronto | 293 The Kingsway | 33.9m | 9s | The Benvenuto Group | BDP Quadrangle

    Looks like they are renewing leases for the Humbertown Plaza for 2-3 years. I have heard through sources that there are engineering changes, and some obstacles on the property that require further investigating. They will not be breaking ground for a few years.

    Toronto | 293 The Kingsway | 33.9m | 9s | The Benvenuto Group | BDP Quadrangle

    Interesting development here. I agree with the previous poster .... why keep St Stevens Ct? Why not reconfigure the entire property. (I guess you can't mess with a public road ?) I don't see any retail / commercial becoming reality in this development. These are going to be...

    Islington Village / Six Points (Etobicoke)

    Looks like they have begun the excavation and grading of the new Six Points interchange south of Bloor. I assume they are going to re route traffic before taking down the bridges ?

    Toronto | 2947 Bloor West | 29.2m | 7s | RioCan | RAW Design

    Any news on this? Who is the developer of this project?

    Toronto | Bloor & Dufferin | 128.9m | 37s | Hazelview | Turner Fleischer

    The press release states that there will be 'new community space' 20,000 sq ft to be approximate.... A new high school on the former Brockton lot, consolidating Bloor Coll. and tenants into the new building. Then below it says "mixed use development". So at this point it is...

    Toronto | Bloor & Dufferin | 128.9m | 37s | Hazelview | Turner Fleischer

    I have a good friend moving over from Europe. Who's son will attend a class in the former Kent PS building. His family will be getting a house in the neighbourhood.... but will the Building be demolished ??? Will the German / Art / Learning classes be moving ?? This is a big deal...

    St Regis Toronto Hotel and Residences | 281.93m | 58s | JFC Capital | Zeidler COMPLETE

    You are absolutely right....its all about branding. The Trump was sold to the public 7 years ago, when Mr. Trump was a fairly successful media, property and hotel mogul. His star had risen quite well in the 2000's, but here we are in 2012, when he has lost his lustre, and his image has...

    St Regis Toronto Hotel and Residences | 281.93m | 58s | JFC Capital | Zeidler COMPLETE

    The big difference is that 1 King West went on sale 10 years ago....you could have bought a condo for $249,000 and make the equivalent profit with todays room rates. So yes, they could be profitable at this point. Trump units are going for $900,000 and renting our for $450 a night. As one...

    Delmanor Snrs Res (4180 Dundas St W @Prince Edward, Tridel, 8s, Burka Architects) COMPLETE

    Just drove by the site, looks like they are digging the foundation, and starting to install the beams. Too bad this is a retirement residence, it would be a beautiful location for a residential condo since it backs on to the Humber River. The old folks will have nice views, no doubt.

    Toronto | Humbertown Redevelopment | ?m | 21s | First Capital | Kirkor Architects

    This was the easiest report found on the internet. http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2008/gm/bgrd/backgroundfile-11983.pdf I also posted about this last year, there have already been site renderings and proposals made about this land, but I can't find them anymore. You can try and...

    Toronto | Humbertown Redevelopment | ?m | 21s | First Capital | Kirkor Architects

    I read recently that the City of Toronto is looking to sell off the land at Islington/Bloor (Bus station and parking lots) to a private developer. The proposal is to build 2-3 condo towers and commercial space.

    Wealthiest Neighborhood?

    I'm surprised that The Kingsway is not listed as a wealthy neighbourhood, or listed on the average family income chart. Most homes on the Kinsgway are between $2 million to $5 million! The Kingsway makes Lawrence Park and Lytton Park look like Regent Park !! LOLL

    Queensway

    Congrats on forming the group....I used to live at Loggia on I/Q and enjoyed 2 years of life on the Q! (We recently moved up to Bloor) The Q was great...everything nearby and close to TTC and highways. Yes, the strip between Islington and RY is crappy, and needs to be entirely demolished...

    Islington Subway Station

    Bump.....looks like the Islington TTC hub will be moving shortly. 3 Condo towers with street level retail, and the upgrading of the Kipling TTC station will be in order. http://www.thestar.com/article/924667--hume-attempt-to-liven-bloor-islington

    Carrville District Centre, Vaughan

    Is this land owned by York Region? Or is it owned by a private developer? It looks very interesting...I would be amazed if this actually happens! Traffic is already brutal in this area...Rutherford rd. is bumper to bumper all day long, this will make it worse!

    The Hive: Lofts on The Queensway | 21.03m | 6s | Symmetry | Teeple Architects COMPLETE

    I used to live at the Loggia on Queensway/Islington. We were there for 2 years, until we moved up Islington -Bloor neighbourhood. I have nothing but good things to say about the Queensway strip, lots of activity, great shopping and dining, and easy commute. (You cannot beat the location...
