They have to have outdoor amenity space, so typically the only way to do that on a site like this is with a podium rooftop… so, boxiness.I really don't like the low rise portion above the historic buildings. It floats over top of them, and doesn't fit or match. Ugly. The tower should just go straight up behind the buildings and get rid of those boxy parts.
Exactly. Be careful out there in Torender!The streetcar on Queen is going the wrong way!
I see 2020 is giving us an Imo vs Mont-Blanc reboot
Site Plan approval for a 57-storey mixed-use building having a non-residential gross floor area of 250.0 square metres, and a residential gross floor area of 29,650 square metres. A total of 445 residential dwelling units are proposed, along with 51 below grade parking spaces.
Does anyone know when they plan on breaking ground?
It's likely no longer on the market (and no sale has been recorded on Realnet), since there is no point in owners submitting an SPA application to the City unless they are preparing to take the building to market soon. (In fact, submitting an SPA would be counterproductive if they were still planning to sell.) Still, taking something to market is a long way from shovels going into the ground, so guess on that yet.Well, if the site is for sale as indicated in post 154, they won't be breaking ground for a while. We don't yet know who "they" will be.
The creative liberties taken, shall we say, are not insignificant.Some slight changes to the east-looking hero rendering…

…while all of the following are new with this SPA submission. Dang, the building looks hot in that south-looking hero shot.
