I wondered when this would be finally revealed
 
Way too small of a lot for this if you ask me. It kills the development potential of surrounding sites, they need to assemble some more property. Maybe pick up a bit of frontage onto Yonge street.

Why do you think it kills the dev potential of surrounding sites?
 
The quintessential Toronto typology of a box, a preserved facade and balconies everywhere.

It's almost hilarious looking at an 80-floor tower sitting upon a two-storey facade. Not that I mind, though.

already earmarked for something else
 
Won't Aura have set a new precedent in that regard for buildings in the vicinity? Thinking of the straight, diagonal line you see on dev apps...
 
Considering the scale of development in the immediate area, I assume they will be allowed a fairly tall tower here.
 
I am curious about how one would justify that FSI.

Oh, me too. Aura and Massey must have set new highwater marks in the neighbourhood when they were approved. Interested to see a comparison.

I'd also be interested to see a chart indicating the, say, 5- and 10-year trendline of average approved FSI in Toronto devs.
