    Do we know who the developer is? I really hope it is not pemberton as they did an awful job with Michael Power Place.

    Interesting. Lots of development in this area - have there been retail developments to support this?

    In respect to walking distance there are no retail developments.

    Pro: New buildings by a reputable developer to freshen up those, ahem, 'ghetto' complexes at the North West side of Islington & Cordova.

    Con: Apartments. Would of been nice to see more condo development around this area.

    EDIT: Yeah, scratch that ... according to the Official Plan above they will be condos (Pg. 16 - Tenure Type: Condos)

    Are they apartments? On the very last page it mentions condos -

    Tenure Type: Condo (page 16).


    New rental apartments are not as bad as the 90's and 80's buildings. The Village Gate West buildings are fantastic.

    I am also hoping they would be glass condos. I know there is abundance of them in the city but ECC is in desperate need for some tall glassed towers.

    So the applicant is Deltera Construction - meaning Tridel will own these lands and expect them to end up just like Essex community on Kipling. Not thrilled about that but let's see if they can reassemble something like those Nuvo Essex. Good to see those commuter parking lots gone and making those lands usable. I can see ECC growing and definitely will become a skyline of Etobicoke one day.

    Just looking at the drawings, it looks like the older Essex buildings (Tall Rectangular shaped buildings), which is unfortunate.
