I can see 46 stories here. I wonder where they are planning to move the house? Perhaps to the laneway side of the lot?

That was one of my "gonna be a condo tower within 10 years" sites I pointed to in the Aura thread about a month ago, saying that about 30 sites in the area could go highrise. I also believe the large but lowrise RBC immediately in front of this proposal (on Yonge&Grenville) could go highrise, as could the Mcd's strip.

Not to mention Dundas/Sackville (TCHC), Spire and Indigo just slightly further afield...

i don't know why they would even bother moving the house ... it seems perfectly usuable and in good shape.

why not integrate it into the design ... it's been done before and judging by the reaction of many here and the Yonge Street BIA to 5 St. Nicholas, it will be very welcomed.

Is it safe to say that the recession is over? (At least for Toronto construction projects.) The pace of major new project announcements (such as this one) seems back up to 2007-2008 levels.
