    Another fantastic-looking potential project from Old Stonehenge and Studio JCI. Six or two storeys (please six!).

    Or, another two storey version:

    What's with the blank wall facing a vibrant street in the two-storey version? That's an odd choice.

    Yeah, that two storey option looks awful. I'd far rather a truncated version of the 6 storey (or the 6 storey itself) than the blank wall.

    in-line retail is tough they generally want two stories of facade - more to come

    I don't think I understand what you mean by "in-line retail"?

    No retail along this strip has a two-story fa├žade, at any rate (not even the McDonald's), so that would be pretty out-of-scale and, I think, unwelcome.

    I don't understand the opposition to intensify the Bloor-Danforth corridor.

    The COA is constrained by existing zoning. I suspect that if they apply for rezoning the Planning Department will be accepting of it.

    The second-storey blank wall is bizarre and unwelcome.

    I found this on Clifton Blake's site:

    874 Bloor St W, Toronto

    Currently under development, this exceptionally-located street-front retail site will feature a AAA national tenant at-grade and multiunit residential setback and above once completed. The subject property is within the vibrant Christie Pitts neighbourhood along the Bloor-Danforth subway line, just west of Ossington Station.

    It looks like a Tim Hortons is coming to the area?

    This is how the site looked like yesterday:

    Funny, we just walked by. Notices on the front say 10 residential units but nothing about the retail space.

    This stretch of strip is really starting to see change.
