Actually, even if it's 60s/70s cheese and I wouldn't bawl over its disappearance, I don't mind it--with its interior mall and retail and all, it's about as urbane as garages of that time get. (And the retro supergraphics within the garage proper are a hoot, even if they're likely either recreations or retro gestures of the past decade.)Looks like it's this monster:
It is such a distinctly 60/70s creature isn't it? Similar structures are more common in smaller cities - when they built this, I suppose Yorkville was still a 'small city'. Regarding loss of parking however - when I went for a dentist appointment and couldn't find a place to park my bike, the receptionist informed me that parking for any vehicle in this area is next to impossible to find. In the period of 4-5 years while the hypothetical condo gets built, there will be serious (probably permanent) changes in how people access Yorkville.Actually, even if it's 60s/70s cheese and I wouldn't bawl over its disappearance, I don't mind it--with its interior mall and retail and all, it's about as urbane as garages of that time get.

Exactly right. Look for more above ground parking.Could there not be condos built like Trump with above ground parking and the condo on top of that? The condos would have to be taller then the bloor street condos anyways. PLus there is a walkway to the parking from bloor street which could become the entrance of a condo development.
Who said it has to be super luxury..can they not build a 50-60 storey Casa/18 Yorkville type development here.Exactly right. Look for more above ground parking.
Here developer needs to replace spots and accommodate new spots. Extremely expensive undertaking. Don't look for super luxury here. Super luxury is maxed out for the cycle.
My bet is this deal does not get underway before cycle ends. This could been a 10 yr deal for a developer with patient capital.
Yeah, wouldnt that be something down at 90 Harbour..The Menkes by the Lake, landmark tower...Could be related to one of the Harbour St properties, but you never know.
Another hotel in the Yorkville area wouldn't be a terrible thing.
They didn't mention 100 storey in the tweets, that was just a guess. You never know though, 10 years ago I never would have guessed that the nicest condo building in the GTA would be in Mississauga - but it is.I cant see a 100 storey structure being built anywhere else other than the downtown core, which i would assume now-a-days includes the Yorkville area.
