    WAM Developments has been assembling this entire block bounded by Queen, Richmond, Power, and Parliament. Expect a large development soon.

    didn't pick up the shell. Damn, was hoping for that. Though I will admit, that shell is very useful when getting off the highway.

    Remediation costs on gas stations aren't always cheap, much easier to work around them, plus it would be the last piece of the assembly in this case, and therefore likely the most expensive.

    The assembly is already too big. What a bland, boring development. Greenpark would be envious. At least they attempted to add some interest to the pedestrian experience with their other multi-tower podium site in the area. It's just all sad how far we've dropped from the Mozos and East Lofts.

    At first blush, far too hulking.

    Doesn't fit even in an illusory way w/its neighbours or context.

    Podium is too tall.

    Podium needs more variation to break it up a bit.

    At the tower levels, I'm unimpressed, though, I've seen far worse.

    But just the sheer mass, combined with an irreconcilably incongruous, domineering, yet bland podium......ugh, send it back.

    I am really excited for this development. The area has so much potential, but pretty dead.

    OPA & Rezoning. Another gas station bites the dust.

    At this rate, I wonder if there will even be any gas stations left in the core by 2020. Off the top of my head the only ones left would be the 2 at King @ Spadina, Sherbourne @ Front, Dundas @ Church, and Richmond @ Jarvis.
