Located at the southeast intersection of Queens Quay East and the Yonge Street slip, the site’s redevelopment will help to complete the long-term vision for Pier 27.
Much larger than was was originally proposed for the site.
This has to just be some place holder. It clearly does not fit in. unfortunately this is just the design those approve such designs seem to love. (for some strange and unknown reasoning) boring. Lame. Uninspiring trash. Doesn’t fit in. Is only good for balcony lovers wich realistically isn’t everyone who would end up in such a building.Kind of boring. The twists and turns, if you can call them that, are so subtle they're basically invisible.
Unfortunately this will likely be a luxury building which still demands large amounts of parking.Hmmm
A parking ratio 0.62 spaces per unit does not seem consistent with MTSA intensification policies.
I think they need to pick a side.
If they want the density.....the parking needs to come down, substantially; and they still need to pay additional community benefits for any increase in density.
Proposal for two mixed-use towers having heights of 11-storeys (Building A) containing 136 residential dwelling units and 45-storeys (Building F) containing 449 residential dwelling units. The total non-residential gross floor area on the lot will be 1133.3 square metres, and the proposed residential gross floor area will be 43,305 square metres.
You know a park at the foot of yonge is already in the works, right? And another one across the street...... And design wise, this isn't the design, just a placeholder.This is pretty unfortunate...too tall, bland, and hardly an attractive proposal in regards to design language for such an important intersection. I'd support in a hypothetical situation, a park or plaza here...but of course, thats not realistic in this housing market. Still....a nice park by the foot of Yonge would be amazing.
