There was a previous City Planning Preliminary Report for this site in August 2007 (http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2007/te/bgrd/backgroundfile-6187.pdf) for a 8 storeys mixed-use proposal ... I suppose now that the West Queen West District OMB matters are resolved, the owner is going forward on Site Plan Approval for a 10 storeys mixed use proposal ~ :D

********

1181-1183 QUEEN ST W

Application # 08 213120 STE 18

Description: 10-storey mixed-use building with 107 residential dwelling units and retail at grade

Proposed Total GFA: 9,256.00 sq.m.

Proposed Units: 107

City Contact: Lynda Macdonald (416) 392-7618

Baywood Homes will be constructing a "Flatiron" building on the site directly south of The Gladstone Hotel to replace the infamous Country Site coffee shop.
it is from this source I assume this site has been acquired by Baywood Homes ??

if so then Baywood is really snatching up lots of land and being very active in the WQW district ~

Does anyone know if Pemberton purchased this project as well in addition to the Bohemian or is it still going to be a Baywood development?

Glad to see this is still in the pipeline. Bohemian Embassy and the other developments south of Queen fail hard, but this may be the one redeeming feature of this area. Great opportunity here with the interesting curve provided by Sudbury Street and to be a gateway for Queen West. That preliminary rendering looks promising, just needs some refining and this could be a gem.

It's been redesigned but apparently Pemberton and Baywood are having problems agreeing what to do with this site, so nothing is likely to happen for a while.
A spokesperson for Pemberton Group told me they don't have any affiliation with this property.
