Honest Ed's will certainly soon be redeveloped, but it's no place for skyscrapers.
Signing off, once and for all. Been nice knowing some of you.
What irks me is that large mediochre and bottom line projects like Aura and 10 York pass with little resistence but when something remotely audacious comes up the locals bring out the pitchforks in rage at the impudent developers.
The CBC interviewed Adam Vaughan at the site of this project discussing development in the area in general. Vaughan was very negative throughout the interview saying he was against tall buildings. He cited Shangri-la, RBC-Ritz and Tiff as examples of "mistakes". He said west of Spadina where recently approved buildings are around 11 storey's in height the city is "getting it right". I take it from his comments that if he had is way nothing in his ward would be taller than 11 stories.

Yeah, don't get me started on him, how is it the ones completely clueless and arrogant are in charge,
well if there is any place for towers like these, this is the place. this is a 250m walk from one of the largest transit centres in North America, which will include a direct link to the airport, a major regional bus terminal, an inter-city rail terminal, 2 subway line terminals, 7 GO regional rail line terminals, a major regional bus terminal, a freeway directly to the south, the possibility of a future intercity bus terminal (45 bay), and a third subway line. (DRL) if this isn't the place to build two 326m buildings, a convention centre casino, mall, and mega-hotel, I don't Know what is.
