yeah there are always weirdos who rater see crappy falling apart overpriced high rise glass apartment buildings filled with losers in suits then creative people living in a warehouse, i hope you enjoy itI want to see this crappy incomplete block filled in asap, but with the fuss about the Greyhound site project this will probably also face stiff opposition from area residents. This proposal will likely have to go through a series of adjustments and refinements before the final product is complete.
Fifteen to seventeen storeys isn't a podium - it's a building complete. At least in this neighbourhood. What's the average height of a building along The Esplanade here...ten floors?a 34 & 33 storey condominium connected by a 15 to 17 storey podium
So you're living at the Siesta right now, eh? Interesting. And who died? What's his name with the bad haircut who collected rent? John?yes siesta is history, my manager forced me to take off my previous posts, but as we leaving the building in a week anyhow, it dont matter anymore
just the facts:
the group who builds the condo approached our landlord December
1 week later he was dead
2 weeks later the building was sold to them
right after we all got our 60 days eviction notice
april 1st most of us are out of here , maybe a few stuglers remain
today the demolition company showed up to assess the building
so the building will be near empty with in the next week, its already half empty
the price is super high and that saved us in the past, but this time its unlikely no mater how unrealistic the price will be (it was listed for $4.8mill 2010),
although the building is old i doubt that an old industrial railway reload station would qualify for historical building, especially its not really a nice looking building
Two different things here - the entire site, the 177 - 197 Front Street East block, except for the small building in the south west corner, was what I understand to have been sold for the &70 Million. The small building in the south-west corner would be what was listed for the $4.8 million, and now sold to be incorporated into the overall site.$4.8 million? You're a bit off - the site sold to Muzzo (as is noted in the header line) a few months back for $70.0 million. Close guess though!
people are desperate, the economy could collapse at any time, if you leave your money in the bank it could devalue, stock market is a worst investment in case the economy is collapsing, gold is already way to high.. even if market prices would fall at least you wont lose all your money investing it in property and landYou'd have to be crazy to be throwing that amount of dough on anything east of Jarvis
