Anyone know what the plans are? Is the UofT gonna take down the promenade and build up a new podium (they should)?

dollarama will have a long, lonely stay in that spot.
They have filed for a minor variance for the upgrades. Some elevation updates, infilling a bit of the plaza at the corner of Balmuto and Charles, and the removal of the interior hallway and reconfiguration of the retail units to face out onto Charles.

They also have a much more substantial longer-term play with the property, but that's many years into the future and not particularly high up on their real estate portfolio priority list, but is nonetheless on there.

I don't know about outer space but I can see this from my apartment. Hello, you missed a spot!

On the off chance they have really missed, that, you might want to be nice to them and point that out before they leak all over the place.

With all the snow/rain we've had this fall, it's likely it already has. And if it hasn't been noticed yet, uhhhh. Long unnoticed leaks are never, ever a good thing.
