I tweeted a rendering last week, too lazy to look for it.

This will never fly in this area.

Why not? There's already a mid-rise condo one block south. Also another condo (Ion condos) in the area currently in sales.

Anyways:

Well, judging from a failed project on Weston Rd. north and even some projects in Mississauga at Hurontario and Dundas, condos in low-income suburban areas generally don't sell.

With Downsview Park, new subway stops, this area will not be low income suburban for long. I disagree that this area will not change. This is far from being Jane and finch.. It will be near impossible to fix that situation but here with a few tweeks it can be revitalized.

Interesting; this is the now-closed Downsview Post Office and sorting station. Right across the street from the Downsview Library. The Max (2772 Keele) was a no-frills, but decent building, and yes there's the Ion awaiting construction nearby. The hotel conversion nearby though was a disaster and remains incomplete.

From what I recall there was a thread here detailing the corruption that mired the Hotel/Condo project.
