30 stories? Yeah, right. Talk about chutzpah.
25 Ontario Street is going for 103m vs the 101.5m here, and that one was resubmitted with some minor revisions in March. The response may give us some idea as to how much height might be approved here.

I know the existing building on the property has a driveway (maybe two?) but with the proposed King Street Transit Pilot Project the city should not be approving any new developments that maintain or add driveways or parking entrances on King.

Yes, in its current form the pilot project doesn't extend this far but if successful it could be expanded further east.

I'm fascinated to see how the City is going to respond to such a blatant disregard for the separation distances they seek. There's 3.5m between this and 25 Ontario, and all of it is on the latter's property. There's also an ethical question regarding Bousfields' report since while it does acknowledge the 25 Ontario application on a number of occasions, it omits it entirely in the 'Separation Distances' section.

With the board increasingly siding with the city on these issues, I wonder if Brad's method will finally see an impenetrable challenge.

If this even gets to the board before the whole thing is abolished, that is. The province seems to be moving pretty quick to get rid of it.

there are also some 0m setback windows on the west side. I could forsee some code issues regarding window light unless he can get a limiting distance agreement with SAS next door. There are bedrooms that appear to rely on them to meet their natural light requirements. Nevermind the additional cost of windows facing a property line with less than a 5.5m distance separation.

Ah, a name. Bauhaus. This was the original name of the facadectomy at 251 King East (corner Sherbourne) that became King + Condos. I recollect much UT discussion about what was Bauhaus about 251 and suspect we can recycle it here too.
