    Even more intensification for Yonge & Eg, this time in form of rentals. Location is couple blocks east of Y&E intersection. Not entirely sure of the density descriptions, wording a bit confusing. But looks like the owners of the current apartment towers want to redevelop and/or build new rentail towers on available space (likely on south portion of site ). Definitely a massive number of units for the site, along with the amount of parking spaces proposed. Certainly to be an issue in the planning stages.

    *Hmmm...probably a more likely scenario for just one 28 & 26 storey buildings. Unit totals could add up to that with 2 buildings (slab style?). "2 x " does seem excessive...

    Sorry, thread title revision please

    Development sign just went up this afternoon, and here is what the site plan shows. Indeed it's two separate buildings, 28 and 26 storeys tall, with a 1 storey gallery space building fronting onto Soudan.

    Well that is an interesting design. I can see how it would play nicely off of the nearby commie blocks.

    Looks similar to the main E Condos building eh? I find a lot of the future Yonge & Eg condos look contemporary but don't necessarily look out of place among the commie blocks.

    Quite a lot of park space facing Soudan eh? Of course, that won't stop people from protesting this building.

    Anyways it looks great to me, the park certainly looks much better than the parking lot currently there.

    The application suggests the City of Toronto leased the space for a park. I wouldn't consider it as part of the proposal.

    Yeah, but then again without the proposal the city couldn't or wouldn't touch it

    No doubt the owner made money on the lease. You would know too the agreement is over a decade old if you bothered to scan the report. Not surprised at all though.

    Park Space here would be a nice change from the parking lot.

    I remember playing manhunt in this area as a kid. :p

    The New Modern buildings are generally more sophisticated than the old slab apartment towers, but they also manage to harmonize with them. It's a good situation.

    I'm involved in this application so I am happy to hear it is well received! I quite like it.
