Abuting 65 King East

That is some crazy formwork overlapping the Sixty Colborne Condos balconies' space in pick 4.

So how are those orange fin thingies holding out on this building? It seems to have been a very long while and a dog's lifetime since I've been down that area...

I haven't found anything so posing this to the forum: Are there any future high rise development plans for 91 King St E and the neighbouring building? Since 60 Colborne is already flanked by its own podium to the east and 65 King St E to the west, I can't imagine anything major happening with 91 King St E or else the northern part of the building will be completely boxed in.

Several years ago the Albany Club (91 King East) - the "Tory Club" - applied for a development application and this was made in conjunction with the previous (??) developers of 65 King. They eventually withdrew their application and spent $$ fixing up the Club. (Last time I was there, 10 years ago, it needed it! ) I think it's not going anywhere.

Exactly: the City told them that their location was not appropriate for a tall building, and to please slink away into the darkness… which they did.

It was all actually quite funny and I well remember the most amusing community consultation I was ever at - it was for 65 King and the lawyers for the Albany Club stood up and said they opposed the plans due to height and density. Since their own proposal had been presented only about 6 months earlier and was actually taller, their objections were met with loud and prolonged laughter from the audience and even the City staff had a hard time keeping straight faces. The lawyers slunk away shortly afterwards!
