Tall for the neighbourhood, especially with 3 towers of the same height... The mixed use infill is a positive along with the minimal number of parking spots.

That site has a wide frontage. Hopefully, it won't be a monotonous facade. I'd love to see a building with a podium facade broken up into at least 5 different components with different cladding--preferably brick and stone--in reference to the narrow frontages of Queen's Victorian vernacular.

Not surprise to see this as I expected it was on borrow time base on the changes taking place around it. More surprise it only 1 tower since that a lager and deep lot compare to 90/100 Broadview that was smaller than this site with 2 towers.

Queen's Victorian vernacular will never happen, but brick maybe. Wonder if this another Streetcar project since they like small mid rise buildings with 2 to the west they just built??

I think you would be correct in that assumption

I presume Toyota or a large grocer is part of the development given the number of retail parking

If it is Streetcar, I do hope they get this right. It's a huge plot of land and could really affect Riverside positively/negatively going forward. Their track record is mostly decent, but rarely stellar I find. The Carlaw and The Carnaby may be signs of that changing for the better though.

They need to buy the building next to it on both side to make this a huge site to house no less than 4 towers. Even without those buildings, you can fit 4 towers in there easy.

I wouldn't be surprise to see a new n-s road to line up with one of the 2 on the north side.

Need a large grocery store here.

It should be Streetcar. There's a building permit for the vacant retail space at 630 Queen St E (Sync) for a condo sales centre for a new development "located across the street".
