    Benito's photo does a good job of showing how Sorbara Beacon matches Menkes GibsonSquare beside it:

    I can't comment on the look of the building (well I can, but I don't want to get involved in that discussion) but I'm very much hopeful for the public realm benefits this project will bring in terms of the farmers market.

    Where did the "loft"-esque treatment to the windows go? I know a render is a render but the 4x2 pattern horizontal pattern has been replaced by a much more commonplace configuration.

    On a more positive note, second-floor retail seems to work well in this area. I've noticed quite the large clothing store on the second floor of Menkes' Gibson Square that seems quite fancy.

    Today:
    Impressive canyon forming on this side of the street. 5151 Yonge Street (north-east corner of Yonge-Empress) is also a sizeable lot, I'd imagine a two-tower proposal in the near future.

    Development has greatly slowed down in NYCC. The Sorbara project is the only one actively under construction. There is another one just up the road at Churchill but it hasn't started construction yet. The only other construction is the Sheppard Centre renovation and new tower.

    Maybe once ReImagine Yonge gets approvals that will trigger a new wave of condos in NYCC.

    Irony being a "new wave of condos" is exactly what we do not want, once ReImagine Yonge gets approval. There aren't enough jobs in the area to be filled by new/existing residents, so biking/walking to work is probably not an option for most (of course there are outliers to this).

    Thats what will get built. There is no demand for commercial office outside of downtown unless the city offers a tax incentive of some kind.
