Why would anyone want Oxford. They build boring but, without the quality of Brookfield.

I know most are gaga over MNP Tower. It's skinny and curvy. The curviness lacks elegance from most angles and the glass doesn't look that great either. Rbc Waterpark and Centennial Place are complete duds.

Noticed that soil sample boring equipment has been on the site over the last few weeks. At the lawn on the north side and in the parking lot near the retail store.

Weston-owned company bidding on waterfront LCBO land, sources say
An investing vehicle run by the Weston's, one of Canada’s richest families, is among companies bidding on what may be Toronto’s biggest land deal, according to people with knowledge of the plans.

Wittington Properties Ltd. is in the running with at least two other companies to acquire an 4.5-hectare plot near the city’s waterfront owned by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, the provincially owned alcohol retailer, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the bidding is private. The company is the real estate arm of Wittington Investments Ltd., which is 85 per-cent held by the Garfield Weston Foundation and the Weston family. The family’s patriarch, W.G. Galen Weston, is Canada’s richest person, with businesses spanning retail in Canada and Britain and a net worth of about $8.7-billion (U.S.), according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
The province has said it expects the transaction to be completed by March 31.

Weston's real estate arm would actually make sense for this site. They could potentially build a new Loblaws on this site, fully integrated with development. This would then free up the current Loblaws site for redevelopment.

God forbid Concord building anything else in this city after their garbage Lakeshore project is done with (or as one of the executives of Concord describes it: "the definition of timeless architecture").

I do remember though that, many years ago, Weston wanted a property at Yonge and the 401 to build a massive head office (was to be the tallest in the city if built). The plans never panned out, but perhaps they are hunting for a location for something similar.
