Why, does this look pretty to you?
God help us all if a developer tries to do a Five or a 1 Yorkville type of project and incorporates the old stuff with the new:rolleyes:
Actually, that building has already been restored.. so yes I hope they leave these alone.

Let it be another developer. Avoid large assemblages. That is all I meant. A street that takes on the narrow form of Massey Tower instead of what we are seeing. (a repeat of Bay Street)

Isn't it clear by now that Yonge Street as we have known is essentially gone?

The bottom line is this section will get cleaned up with a highrise or two and preserving those old buildings. My question is does anyone have an idea how high they would allow a structure to go up in this area with this assembled properties ?

I doubt you will get anything over 200 meters, as mentioned by maestro regarding the Massey Tower in a smaller property, that was an exception
if they assemble a couple more bldgs. to the north they might get 170-180 meters, just this maybe a Halo

Five and One Yorkville are similar but also very different to me. Five works. One Yorkville's composition leans towards the odd side. I still appreciate the converted rowhouses being preserved as the podium of the tower.
