    I wonder if mixed use mean ground floor retail or if there will be a few floors of office too.

    Anyways, 8 levels of underground parking is a lot! Are there any other projects with so many underground levels?

    How many levels does Shangri la have? Doesn't it have the deepest out in the city?

    I wonder if this proposal includes the Minto sales centre to the north? 2223 Yonge Street & perhaps the Tim Hortons?

    Hey it may even be a Minto tower?

    Minto sales center was leased by the power workers association (the entire building) it won't be part of this.


    Argg, please replace the office space ...

    As mentioned above, it would tie for the most underground parking levels with Shangri-la.
    But Shangri-la is not the deepest excavation in Toronto's history, that honor belongs to Scotia Plaza at 110ft.

    NIMBYs won't like this one!

    Otherwise, great news.

    not that I like this building, but why do developers replace a functioning midrise, instead of buying some low rise properties on the side streets nearby (Soudan Ave, Hillsdale ave for example), demolish them and erecting a tower? Won't it be cheaper? I am sure for the right price, some owners will be willing to sell.
