    This is from back in October, but I haven't found any thread for it.

    I am surprised that the Green P lot out back (246 Brooke) isn't one of the included properties.

    This is a small land owner encompassing only the corner building and the adjacent "Backs2beds.ca" building .... plans I've seen were 5 storey building with 45 degree angular plane stepping down on the west side as required by City ... extremely tight site so much that it had to resolve to parking elevators ... Green P has no interest to redevelop 'at this time'

    Not much of an improvement.

    This is awful - they made no attempts to fit the character of the neighbourhood.

    Yeah, that's indefensible generic shit. The architects are likely embarrassed.

    That's parallel parking in the lot behind this and adjacent Yonge Street properties, widening enough eventually for regular perpendicular spaces.
