Since no one's posted the latest from urbanation, here it is:

906 Yonge St (current home of Ridpath Furniture) will be incorporated into new condo / hotel development (2 bldgs) http://twitpic.com/1z0s5o
906 Yonge St, just north of Davenport--across the street from the Crappy Tire (how long before it goes high rise as well?)

^ Yeah, it's amazing. This is the 3rd new project I've heard about today alone. BTW, Ridpath's property extends all the way back to McMurrich St.

Thank goodness the Ridpath building will be incorporated and not replaced.

Seems good. Retains the historic buildings and adds density at an acceptable height for the neighbourhood.

Didn't the Ridpaths store originally expand laterally, i.e. into the 920 Yonge podium space that's now occupied by Christine's Fitness?

...which'll almost surely involve the incorporation of the already-false "original" facade as some kind of podium feature...

The 35-storey tower would be one of the slenderest in the city - less than 50 feet wide north-south.
