The proposal would have a total of 77 parking spaces located on two levels of underground parking with access to the below grade ramp that would be provided on the south portion of the site from Bayview Avenue.

Looking forward to a lot more of these intensifications with the Crosstown station opening up at Bayview & Eg.

The textured gradient motif has potential, looking forward to seeing this in full definition renderings.

That sounds like a brilliant name. Too bad Disney owns the name "Thanos." But again, Disney allowed palaeontologists the right to use the Thanos name for a dinosaur: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanos_simonattoi
Doubt Disney would let a barely-known local developer whose webpages for some of their projects are broken and redirect to Chinese sites, use their name.

On a side note:
They really seem to like having their projects look like they ran out of paint and just gave up. Here's a render for another one of their projects at 3200 Dundas that I found on their website. Should be a safe estimate of what they're planning for here, and I can't say I like it.

Gairloch's website works fine, I didn't encounter any broken links or random redirections.
