from the article: "A proposal surfaced last month, which would see a condo higher than the Minto Tower built at the northeast corner of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue. "
Sounds like this news is about a month old! Did anyone else know anything about this? Curious how it could have evaded everyone for so long haha
Being that it's right at the corner, and with the proposed height increase of the RioCan buildings, as well as the precedent set by Minto, I think that a 57 storey tower should easily fit in well. Whether the community sees it that way could be a very different story.
I can see the entire strip of Yonge between Soudan & Davisville being almost totally redeveloped. It's a bit of a dead zone but really shouldn't be, considering it's proximity to two subway stations and the shopping and entertainment hub at Eglinton.
^ I agree, I've walked down that stretch a couple times and there's definitely a lot of redevelopment opportunity. What about right above the rail corridor? Could that not be a good opportunity for the TTC to sell their air rights, and for developers to put up some medium rise buildings?
“When we discuss one development, we have to consider how the junction works,” he said. A primary concern is establishing an open public space at the intersection, Matlow said, especially since the public square at the northwest corner will be lost as part of the RioCan redevelopment.
