Can't developers leave one corner alone? More quality buildings on Yonge Street will bite the dust if something significant goes up here plus getting in and out of the parking garage at this corner will be a nightmare, presuming it's a condo.[/URL]
Sadly the Stollery's building has been as good as demolished since its unfortunate third story addition, and tacky roof signage. Clearly there are some interesting Deco touches still visible, as well as the somewhat unique (for Toronto) Spanish tiling, but ultimately it's no surprise to learn that the clock is ticking on this one.
If we are to get a truly distinct or well-designed proposal for this site, any attempt at facadism would undermine both the new design and the original Stollery's building. It goes against every instinct in my body, but I say let this one retire to the history books.
