hey all - am new here, thanks to Tomms. some of you do know me but i'm operating under a pseudoname for specific reasons. I'm a mimico'dian - been there for the past 12 years and watching it grow steadily. i'll be able to provide updates on this and the other construction in the area as it's my back yard essentially and drive past it all daily.
that said, i'm also involved with several community circles in the area and from time to time get some intriguing information about projects in the area. had an opportunity to speak with Mark Grimes, councillor for Ward6 Lakeshore Etobicoke on 9/5
Re: Beyond the Sea
Phase 3 still not approved... perhaps end of September.. several zoning issues.
Tenants are slowly phasing out of the plaza slated for demolition. NoCeri's will be closing their doors for good at the end of the month, with a big blowout bash while Rabba will be moving in a week or so west a few blocks. The rest will follow accordingly.
Offtopic - When queried what's on the table for Christie's across the street - originally it was believed they were closing their doors for 2012 but Grimes indicated they are NOT moving the cookie plant and they are in fact spending oodles of dollars to keep it and the developers across the street. I guess time will only tell.
My wife and I just received a letter from Empire regarding Star Tower.
"...In accordance with your Agreement of Purchase and sale, we are writing to advise you that we are extending the economic viability date.......Please be advised that the vendor does herby extend this aforementioned Condition for a period of Six Months, to June 30, 2009…"
I can see them possibly extending another six months when June 30th comes around, the agreement calls for a maximum of two extensions up to six months each.
