Not really sure this is a holdout - more like a site waiting to be developed. I would say holdouts are sites that held out 'too long' and are now surrounded by other buildings that may make any redevelopment difficult. I put the Tom Jones Steak House in this category as it has a small footprint and will soon be totally hemmed-in by 65 King. (Which will cover the ex-parking lots to its north and east.

A few I can think of. The first one is set to be demolished soon, it won't be a holdout for much longer.

Looks like this house on Augusta Ave just south of Paul Lane Gardens could be a holdout from the SQ2 development townhouse component by Tridel:

It's actually a holdout from the original Alexandria Park public housing project in the 1960's that was never integrated into the redevelopment scheme. So a double holdout!
