    Given it's proximity to the proposed Sumach station on the Downtown Relief Subway line, I'd think it would have to be demolished for the station construction (you can see it below, just south of, and dead-centre, of the station box).

    I'd also think this would discourage any purchase, as the plan would likely delay any property redevelopment for some time. Though it would certainly have some long-term value. Though that's dependent of them actually building the subway - they have been talking about this since the 1940s in one form or another ...

    ...or somehow incorporate it into the station? I know, I'm getting outside the box, errr cube, here.

    Hearing that Long & McQuade is moving the Saved by Technology store from Yonge St. to Eastern Ave. Possibly the auto body shop at Sumach and Eastern.

    Amazing they haven't given up. Word of this plan dates back to 2014. I noticed the building walled off with plywood this week, so demolition is likely happening soon. Presumably, progress reports will eventually be posted on their social media:

    It's already half demolished - working from back wall forward.

    Monday 5 March. From a quick walk past yesterday it seems that ALL walls have been demolished, I assume the partial wall they were intending to save just collapsed.
