Yesterday I noticed a planning application for a 44-storey condo at this site which is just west of Yonge between St. Mary & Irwin. Currently, there is a respectable if somewhat restrained 3-storey brick commercial building, probably Victorian, on the site. This is a charming block with an intact row of Victorian houses (each named after a variety of tree) on the east side and some larger, but accommodating 1980's row houses on the west side. Not a bad addition at all. The well treed street itself is narrow and paved with brick. All in all, quite an intimate block. Not really a great place for a 44-storey tower.
