The parking lot next to the former York Theatre


(the construction site in the background is for a retirement residence at 77 Dunfield St)
wonder who is the builder behind this project (haven't seen any marketing on it)
I've been walking through that parking lot on my way to the subway for three years. The rezoning/site plan approval signs have been up for that long as well. I've seen no work towards a sales centre or anything.
The only thing that changes is the beer mural on the Yorkville Club Uptown. Currently advertising Heineken.
renderings from Graziani+Corazza's website ... showing a 31 storeys proposal by Madison Homes, I wonder though which one is the more current one ? the 22s proposal in the 2007 staff report above on this 31s Madison Homes proposal ??

City staff confirms this 'new' application for 29 storey was submitted by the same owner as the one seeking previous approval (being Madison Homes)

Proposed 6 levels of underground parking (WOW), 2 levels of above grade retail along Eglinton (great!), and a east-west laneway on the southern limits of the site which provides residents dropoff areas and access to parking garage

Preliminary Report is anticipated February 2009
