So they have the opportunity to build right up to the street, and don't include retail use?

This neighbourhood does not even have the 'boring' podium commercial uses that we typically complain about downtown. Here, a bank, drug store, or whatever would actually be a huge boon.

One of my girlfriend's major criticisms is the lack of retail along Davisville. It's a nice area to live in, but more options could be sustained along this stretch between Yonge and Mount Pleasant. Especially considering the relatively high density of this node. A quality cafe for example is seriously lacking. The recent Balliol Park project by Shiplake is also a missed opportunity on this aspect.

Speaking of retail in that area - whatever happened to the application for the building that was to replace Sobeys on Balliol?

It has its very own thread!

The Sobeys will be back in the new building after construction thankfully. Expanding from current 8,000 sqft to 20,000 sqft along two floors.

This looks like the same old slab and balcony design that we see everywhere throughout the city. I expect more from Quadrangle.
