where would this fit exactly? this lot seems pretty built out..

I was wondering the same thing. But upon further inspecting the application, it looks like this is more of an addition. Considering the floor pate is only 490m squared, looks like they're demolishing a sliver of the podium fronting Elizabeth st... Don't think it will be connected to the existing structure (although they could?) but will be right up against it and surpass it in height. interesting...

I don't see that (i.e. tall residential towers) happening unless UHN sells the site to a developer. Not sure if that's the greatest idea given the limited amount of space available for hospital expansion.

I know it wont happen, but that larger lot would make for a good park. I can't think of a park in this hospital neighbourhood between University Ave and Bay (There is the re-do of the park near Aura come to think of it).

Maybe part of can become a small pocket park like Paley or Greenacre park in NYC.
