    I am in that building on a semi-regular basis, and the interior spaces are in pretty rough condition. Won't be too sad to see it go.

    Right its old crappy space, still I'd hope it's replaced with newer modern office space.

    It was old and decrepit when I worked there in the early 90s. No great loss, except for the office space of course.

    So I have been keeping the OP of the Midtown Toronto thread updated. This is the 30th site in the Midtown area I have listed. Here is a map:

    Yonge and Eglinton won't ever be the same. This is a heck of a lot of density coming to the area.

    I don't mind 55 Eg. Has an interesting 50s concrete rationalism thing to it.

    Interesting that both State and Madison, who on Tuesday presented two incredible proposals for sites in the core, feel that the rest of the city is disposable enough to hire the worst firm in the GTA to vomit up dreck like this.

    Is there anything else at Yonge & Eg with a density of 23.8x lot size? Also, this has no replacement office space. What a waste of time. Why does a developer even bother? Do they really think the city will rubber stamp this? Sometimes "the game" just doesn't make any sense to me.
