    Is the former railway ROW part of this building site, or the adjacent development parcel? (or neither)

    I'm assuming residential, the description would have said office.

    I guess they'll keep the old brick facade for the the podium. And build a new blue green glass facade on the the top of it.

    It's fully within the 400 Front site.

    Steele Briggs is being maintained in situ - not just the facade.

    Holy hell, that south facade is appalling...

    Probably assuming that future development will be right up to the edge and hide the south wall.

    Regardless- interesting to see 20 floors of office it seems, and it's a plus that the post & beam interior of Steele Briggs will be kept.

    It does not. The 400 Front application not only proposes a small, pedestrian space in between the two properties at grade, it also features north facing units which would look directly out onto this lazy mess.

    In honestly there's no telling if the projects were developed with knowledge of one another, but in this case I would imagine the landowner being interested more maximizing development on their own individual property rather than integrating this development into the wider 400 Front development.

    Anyways, I presume the cores are on south side so any sort of fixing up of the south facade would probably involve different cladding materials and patterns.

    The cores, washrooms and stairs are indeed on the south side. That's no excuse for the lazy, responsibility-shirking 'metal panel cladding' though. I understand that this is preliminary but if we don't make a fuss now, it'll just slip by.
