Don't hold your breath on anything from the Conservatory group. Those plans for Pearl, Pearl2 and Ruby have been around for years with no progress at all -- due to lack of sales.

Apparently the sales centre at the corner of Spring Garden has been revived so maybe it is coming alive.

Wow, pigs really do fly,... Sale office open now,... promising construction start in Spring with tentative occupancy December 2020 - early 2021 (timeline seems too aggressive)

Note: What appears to be a white paved Open Space above - isn't!,... It's the Royal Canadian Legion Hall #66 on Spring Garden Ave that will remain - Conservatory Group been trying to acquire that property for decades,... but Royal Canadian Legion Hall #66 not selling!

In addition, last summer the retail space was reclassified to allow for supermarket,... approximately 27,000 square feet of possible supermarket retail space (basically entire first floor retail). Interestingly, last summer there was a rumoured that (Urban) Sobeys was opening shop somewhere in NYCC,... one would assume this would be the Sobeys location,.... but there's already WholeFoodsMarket at Tridel's HullmarkCentre, empty supermarket space (Loblaw's T&T bailed, Metro's Adonis rejected, Metro bailed???) at Bazis' EmeraldPark, and Longos going into renovated RioCan's SheppardCentre in 1.5 years, and those 3 are just at Yonge & Sheppard! Yonge & Empress/ParkHomes has Loblaws at EmpressWalk,... this site is smack in the middle with no direct subway connection,... which all the other mentioned supermarket has.

One of the previous OMB hearings had reference to a "green" grocer here,... about same time (2015) with rumoured Urban-Sobeys coming to NorthYorkCentre,... Anyways,... whatever "green" grocer or Urban-Sobeys or whatever that was supposed to take over the 27,000 square feet supermarket retail space here is long gone,... as the entire retail space is now available for rent (should be occupied way before Metro space at Emerald Park).

I noticed yesterday that the old site office for the previous Pearl buildings at the corner of Yonge and Hollywood has been cleared out. I'm assuming they will use this office space for the new building. While the sales office doesn't seem busy, I've seen several people coming out with brochures. It will be interesting to watch.

I would expect them to demolish all of these last remaining buildings just before construction,... and use portable trailer as construction office

Notice the Store Closing Sale & Store Fixture For Sale sign @ HoneyFig. Probably last call for ShawarmaMax soon,... well, at least at this location, they already have another location just north of Empress.

What's with the large tent on this stretch? I've walked by but no one seems to be occupying it yet it's been there a couple weeks...
