I'm all for increased density along the Queensway (light rail transit should be included) but I don't think this proposal will fly. 49 seems like a huge jump from what's there and what's currently proposed. We'll see though.

It depends partly on the overall size / height of the proposal but also on the inclined plane (usually at 45 degrees) from the centre of the road. As Quadrangle (I'm pretty sure) have placed these structures away from the Queensway and nearly adjacent to the QEW, there should be few (if any) size / shadow concerns from the existing communities to the north. Of course, that's only the built form - residents will likely take issue with the increased traffic and density that IQ will bring.

If anyone finds out when and where this public meeting is for the development proposal, please post it. I would like to go.

I bought in phase 3 and am curious to see what happens.

Thanks!

Phase 2 is on sale at the moment, and just got approval for more units, so I'd be surprised if phase 3 went on sale before 2016.

I think this is something thats in the mix a block away



St. Lawrence & Gardiner

Located just west of Islington and south of The Queensway, this proposed residential development consists of a 31 storey tower set upon a 6 storey commercial podium and 24 townhomes. The residential tower will contain approximately 500 units with modern façade of concrete balconies and iridescent glass. The commercial podium will provide pedestrian scale to both the street and the adjacent townhomes. The Queensway development will incorporate the latest in energy saving features including geothermal heating and high-efficiency glazing.

Until a site plan application is filed, we won't likely know if the 140.2 metre height includes the mechanical penthouse or not.
