The building where Kinka Izakaya is located at Church and McGill, along with houses at 73 through 77 McGill to the immediate west, have been purchased by Kin Capital, Secure Capital, and Podium Developments, who are together proposing a tower of about 44 storeys that will be aimed at housing TMU students, and it would seem that they have a limiting distance agreement or more with the student housing to the south!

"aimed at housing TMU students" - are they planning this as a formal "Student Housing" rental building..?

It's simply aimed at that market, no affiliation with the university. We don't have info one way or the other yet on whether they'll go the rental route, or the condo investor (private rental) route.

Application for this one is now public in the AIC:

I think we have all the pretty pictures above, but I will add anything we may not have below:

* of note, building is within St. Mike's Hospital path, but well below the regulatory height limit.


*** Hmmmm; the renders above are much augmented by showing street trees; but the actual landscape plans show zero trees on both the Church St. and McGill frontages.

I expect that may generate some push back, and it should!

So, teeny-tiny units don't even have balconies anymore? Nowhere to step outside to find relief from living in a glorified walk-in closet?
