    Thank God. This city is so desperately in need of affordable housing.

    Press conference scheduled tomorrow morning in CityPlace, likely to announce that this project now has the green light.

    It should be a proposal of 15s to 18 storeys, similar to the height of what Minto was allowed north of this?
    but with Block 31 no longer having plans for affordable housing, and this now being a TCHC bldg.

    Im going to say, they will propose something around 25-30s here with very little opposition to height:eek:

    Why would you expect it to change?



    edit: I remember seeing a render of the building about 2 years ago - and it was 14 storeys

    edit 2: it was KPMB as well

    From the RFP done in 2012:

    Block 36 North in the Railway Lands is 1,537.8 square metres (0.38 acres) in size and zoned to accommodate a 6 to 9 storey residential building with retail at grade. The as-of-right density is 6,163 square metres (66,338 square feet). However, it is TCHC’s opinion that the site can accommodate in the range of 100,000 square feet of density.

    And based on a review of neighbouring Block 32, TCHC no longer wants to build tall buildings, as they cost too much to maintain and create a number of safety issues. The recommendation out of their review is to stick to under 100 units per building going forward. Don't expect anything tall.

    That's bit of a waste though - I'd prefer to see them build a midrise in way that would not preclude a private sector high rise portion to be built. A reverse version of the poor man's door.

    In that document they say they expect to go to COA to "maximize" the development potential of the site



    edit: looks like John Tory is doing a press conference from this site right now.
