Yes, I am a tenant at 61-63 and this is true. Talk of a sale prior to last week was pure speculation, but the deal has now been made. The info given to us at the meeting was as follows:A friend of mine who lives at 63 Charles told me that this building — and its taller neighbour to the west (55 Charles) have been purchased by Mod, with a 55-storey (ish?) tower planned. This was announced at a residents' meeting a few days ago. Rezoning is apparently expected to be filed next week.
55 CHARLES ST E. Rezoning is apparently expected to be filed next week.
Mod is run by someone that takes architecture quiet seriously. I expect something cool.In my dream world, the new building would take inspiration from the existing building and be a yellow brick Selby with art deco flourishes.... As if aA would ever do that.
