Former Paul Wolf Electric site at King and Tecumseth just about cleared (Minto purchased the site in September).

Excellent. Almost anything is a step up from what was there before. I've been away for a while. Are there any renderings of what Minto wants to build there?

Nice old houses bite the dust--don't you just love this town?
I think that there was very little redeeming architecture in the Paul Wolf electric supply townhouse.

It's interesting to compare it to the regal "Gotham" condo-conversion next door. The juxtaposition of these two buildings tells me that Toronto's problem with neighbouring scale was even a problem 80 years ago.

minto is apparently speculating on this one ... construction is supposed to start next month instead of the usual temp parking lot and sales centre setup

Did I miss something? I have not seen anything go through site plan approval, so how can they start construction?

The Paul Wolf building looks like it would have made a good site for artist studios ala 48 Abell, but oh well...

Glad to see a one-storey strip mall bite the dust though. They have no business being allowed to exist anywhere downtown, especially on a major street like King. Why was something like that approved in the first place??

Now if only the same fate would befall the almost identical, awful one-storey strip on the northeast corner of King and Dufferin!
