I can't believe that Harvey's has been there since the 70's! It was there while I was around that area in the late 80's and 90's but I never suspected its history. That corner is going to look really odd with the new condo "towering" Harvey's. I have my memories of the place, but I'm surprised people wanted it to stay. I mean, they could always incorporate a Harvey's as street retail for the new development.

Edit: Jarvis did look amazing with all those trees way back when!

This consultation ended about a half hour ago. It was quite civil, and there were a number of people who declared that it looked "pretty promising", despite the fact that the initial report from Planning is a refusal report. (The refusal mostly comes down to the shadow impact that it makes on Allan Gardens, and that they want to move all three heritage buildings on the property.) There were people in attendance that want the heritage building moves re-thought, but overall, like I said it was all civil. Meanwhile, the 319 Jarvis consultation has now started…
