true.I feel this is fine. 40 storeys would be too much, but 34 is fine. this is a couple blocks from 60 floor towers. it is one thing if the area already has a precedent for midrise buildings, but when you have only 2-4 floor structures, you should set up the area for highrise development, especially when it is only a couple of blocks from a subway line and the rest of the core.
I didn't suggest otherwise. the Village should stay how things are, maybe some beautification work and some more mid rises, but definitely not 40s glass condos. I was more referring to south of Gerrard, the problem area.Church Street above Carlton is just fine, thank-you-very-much.
Church street above Alexander is just fine.Church Street above Carlton is just fine, thank-you-very-much.
I don't think that 355 Church will get as easy a ride as folks expect. There are a row of townhomes directly to their west, which face eastward. Those townhomes have no rear windows (building backs onto Neill-Wycik's brick wall) so anything tall will basically block their views entirely and they will live in permanent shadow. I suppose they could sell their townhomes for a loss to a vampire cult though. Guess there is always an upside.
