    Odd location. Not sure about the density.

    Site was purchased late April this year for 2 200 000$

    Committee worked to establish a regime of maximum heights that would balance the
    need to provide for intensification and a greater scale of development with the desire to
    retain the traditional ‘village’ feel of the street and pedestrian conditions.

    lol... "traditional village" feel. I'd describe this area as having more of a "traditional freeway off-ramp and run down strip-mall" feel.

    stop 228

    I agree, traffic on this part of wilson ave is already like the commuter lane to the 401

    How could city planners allow such a high density building that will stop the flow traffic to a
    Complete halt during rush hour?

    Gorgeous!

    What a beautiful design! I think it's going to make that street look so much better. Does anyone know how to sign up?
