Although Wynn's reputation has improved somewhat of late, they still are the biggest slumlords at heart. Somehow I see three bedrooms for families quickly becoming a student ghetto with overpriced 3 bedrooms accomodations.

Based on the data shown on Geowarehouse, the property includes the building in the centre of the picture, which faces directly on Dupont, and the building toward the left of the picture, located behind the six semi-detached houses. It also continues behind six more semi-detached houses to the west (partially out of the picture). The property includes a driveway out to Dupont from the westerly building, which can be seen in the picture, to the west of the first six semi-detached houses. The property does not include any of the houses which face Dupont.Edit:
I think the map is correct.
I just realized that the Wynn Group probably would be demolishing the 2 low rise buildings already there.
Why would that kill the project? Options for Homes are building towers beside the rail lines on Keele north of Dundas right now.nice design, but isn't this project essentially dead because of the proximity to the CNR lines ???

Preliminary discussion between ratepayers and a Wynn property at Dupont and Kendal abutting the train tracks have commenced. The applicant is interested in a 20-22 floor condo proposal. Land is currently zoned as employment uses and the set-backs (30m) from the railway could prove to be problematic for conversion to residential uses
Although the developers have not yet submitted an application to City Planning, Planning staff told those at the meeting that they will not support the proposal in its current form. The land this development is proposed for is zoned Industrial-Commercial, and although a number of commercial uses were presented as part of the plans, City Planning will not support residential intensification on this site. In addition, the developersâ€™ proposal to build live-work studios next to the CP rail corridor triggered safety concerns as the required setbacks from the rail line were not met.
At the community meeting a while back for this development they included something like 40 live/work loft spaces for artists inbetween the two towers to be sold for the cost of construction.I'm surprised no one has commented on the MOCCA SHOP signage and renders of people looking at art.
