This application if for this building (even though the street address says 580) wedged in between Fashion House and the building that Lee Valley is in, which is part of the 12-storey high King Adelaide Centre redevelopment proposal.

They best be keeping that facade (at a minimum).

Audax! Looks pretty nice. Height is comparable to King-Portland Centre (15 office storeys, 63.3m to top of mechanical).

Database file established, so the thread has been renamed. Developer is C Squared Properties 580 King Inc., but we don't have enough info on them to create a database file for them yet, so their name isn't yet in the thread title.

Refusal report on the Agenda at Community Council in Feb: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2019.TE3.4

This application proposes to redevelop the site at 578-580 King Street West, currently containing a two-storey heritage building, with a 15-storey office building containing retail uses on the ground floor. The development, as proposed, would have a height of 58.6 metres (63.3 including the mechanical penthouse). The front (King Street) façade and the front portion of the east façade of the existing heritage building are proposed to be retained in situ and altered.

The proposed development is not consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (2014) and does not conform with the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (2017) as it relates to heritage conservation and overall built form.

The proposal also does not adequately address policies contained in the City's Official Plan, the King-Spadina Secondary Plan, the King-Spadina Secondary Plan review, the King-Spadina HCD Plan and does not address the King-Spadina Urban Design Guidelines (2006). It does not conserve the heritage character and attributes of the heritage building at 578-590 King Street West and would result in a height, form and massing that is not consistent with the King Spadina Built Form principles.

This report reviews and recommends refusal of the application to amend the Zoning By-law.
Also anyone know who C Squared properties is? Is this a known developer?

Hmm? you know it's good times in Toronto when the city outright refuses a 15s office building,
just another development that in a couple years will end up @ the LPAT redesigned for more section 37 funds
