    Currently the site of an 8-storey Class B office building.

    Leasing handled by Dream.

    Fully leased.

    This is Dundas, north side, 2nd block west of University Avenue.

    Can't say I'd miss this one.

    But I do hope the City makes them keep at least as much office space as what's there now.

    The site is begging for intensification - and yes, would love to see at least the same amount of office space remaining (preferably more, with residential on top).

    This one is begging more for a horizontal addition than a vertical one. 45 storeys is excessive. There's a 200 metre tower on University but check out the other views. It's surrounded by condos and rentals in its current height range.

    The building is more hospital than office. It's going to hurt to lose that space (temporarily) if anything becomes of this zoning exercise.

    I think the building houses the regional health authority (TC LHIN). the TC CCAC and a smattering of other health-related admin offices.

    Ha, I've been waiting for this one! It's often crossed my mind as an underutilized site, and the building will hardly be missed...

    Yup, also cant wait to see the cop-shop on the other side of the street to get developed,
    .. it's time police stations get integrated into much larger buildings like they do in many other big cities in the world

    Here is a generic 45 storey tower on the site, looking rather small next to 488 University:
